Good morning iPeeps! I made a 2nd pot of coffee in the French coffee press this morning. The beans are Brazil santos. One cup is strong enough to keep ALL of us off page 2!
Checkers: sending a Pepsi your way. Your energy & activities always astound me. Enjoy your D15's Homecoming & the scrapbooking conference!
Psychmomma: as others noted, colleges do raise their rates & minimums for significant weekends such as Family Weekend, Homecoming & graduation. For S1's graduation weekend, the hotels all had 3-night minimums. Ugh!
P56: Enjoy having all 3 boys home next weekend. Are you making any special meals?
YDS: hooray for a long Skype convo with your S1! His New Zealand adventures sound amazing. What a wonderful opportunity for him! I'm sure he is learning things above and beyond the classroom.
ML: what wonderful news about your DS gradually resuming his running. That's HUGE! Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
We have big news in DC - and it doesn't involve politics or anything that would violate the TOS: Teddy Roosevelt FINALLY won the Presidents' Race after 526 races. (Apparently he had some help from an imposter Philly Phanatic.
) Oh, and the Nats aren't doing too shabby either. At least baseball love is bipartisan during this election season.
In COLLEGE news, S2 will be coming home for Fall Break next weekend.
It always amazes me that some of our kids are just starting their term, while others are already midway through the semester. I'm waiting to hear if the House Dog is coming home with him. My 14-yr old Geriatric Dog may not take kindly to the new pup on the block.
G#: speaking of new pups on the block, congratulations on the new addition to your family!
