Remember how much you hated homework when you were in school? Well, I've found that I'm right back in the midst of Vocabulary, French, and even Honors Algebra! And I LIKE it! Learning is so much fun when there is no pressure to learn. I can't believe this but Caroline was doing a worksheet on simplifying square roots and couldn't remember how to do it. A friend of mine found this invaluable tutoring website and I quickly reviewed square roots-- let's face it, we never use that in every day life! It was actually fun to do and I was sort of hoping she'd bring another worksheet home so I could be sneaky and figure some out. (This is coming from someone who never liked math!) And I can't wait to review French because it's been 25 years since I was in French 2 ... it would be great to remember some of that!
I actually did have my own homework-- the job is not dead after all and I was asked to proceed. I still have no idea if I will be doing the final design but I'm doing a favor for her because she's a friend. Whatever happens is fine with me. I am just having fun designing again. It is great to take what someone is thinking in their head and then show them how that would look visually.
I've been reading so much informational type books lately, that I decided to pick up a novel (well, it's still a true story but a story nonetheless). Becky highly recommended The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball and she said it was a great love story, so I'm looking forward to sinking my teeth into that one. Every time fall comes around, though, I want to pull this out and read it again! I'm hopeless, aren't I?! I read it several years ago on Labor Day weekend, on a plane to San Francisco and back again, and I was hooked. I love a good book in September!
