ALL BY MYSELF.......

The house is empty....fresh brown bread just came out of the oven, the music is blaring and I am hopping all over the place to Great Big Sea. Too much fun! I almost wish I had someone to dance with. The kids went to Hud's office with him after lunch and won't be back 'til after six. I am never really this alone. I almost don't know what to do!

I just got back from parent teacher interviews. Claire's was the other day and Mr. Mooney says she is a delight and doing really well. She is reading well and has no problems with math, a great sense of humour and a cheerful personality. We were thrilled. Daniel is also excelling , just needing to get a bit more organized. Mrs. MacDonald is thrilled with his personality and his ability to come up with his answers, and his sarcastic attitude which is "never" disrepectful. I'm glad he is in her class as she has high expectations. She usually teaches grade seven so grade five is a different ball game. If anyone can get him organized, it will be her.

The dr called this morning with Claire's blood work results. Everything looks good except her liver enzymes are up. We need to go back in three months and have it checked again. She has not been eating so we went for some help. The dr had ordered the bloodwork to ensure that all systems were working properly, and not being damaged by the lack of nutrition.

Anyhoo....I have alone time, I think I'm going to go have a soak in the tub....

Hopping around to Great Big Sea is fun. In Jr. High I listened to GBS obsessively. But now, I don't know, the love is gone.

But being alone at home with loud music is the best. You become part of the band.

I would love an afternoon in my home alone! How lucky you are!

I am glad school is going so well for the kids.

Now I have that song in my head. Thanks. Except the song says, "Don't wanna be....all by myself....ANNYYYMMOORRREEEE" and we know that ain't true for you.

Wish I coulda seen that Great Big Sea Newfie jig myself! Maybe I did! I could've had my binoculars out and you would've never know...incriminating footage, here we come....
