Happy Friday

This week has passed by so fast. Today is an easy day, I'm keeping watch on students as they study for finals next week. All I have to do is take roll and note if anyone gets out of line-considering these are honors students, I don't forsee a problem.
R has the day off from work today, so he dropped me off and will pick me up after school. He's using the day to go to a nearby college and find out what he needs to do to get his BA degree. He's talked about going back in the spring, and doesn't want to put it off anymore. With the economy tanking, and pending paycuts at his work, anything he can do to ensure having a job is definitly positive. It won't be easy to juggle since we only have one car, and he can't use his work vehicle to go back and forth to class. However, I'm determined that if this is something he wants (and it is something that will help our family) we will make it work, even if it means me taking on more work, or doing w/o a car-I do not want to add another car expense to our budget. We'll see what happens.
R also plans to clean house and grocery shop. Two things that would eventually get done, but it helps that he will do it while I'm at work. Tonight is a scrapbooking night w/ friends. I have a ton of pictures to work on, but more than anything I'm looking forward to socializing. With the other moms working now, and our kids going to different preschools, we don't see each other in passing everyday. I'm seeing how it takes effort to stay connected when life starts getting busy, but at the same time, its not hard-when we get together we're able to pick up where we left off. I hope that continues, since its not always easy to find good friends.

Have a great time Scrapbooking tonight. Maybe you'll be the big winner like last time.

And you're right it is harder when all the kids are in different schools, and you don't see everyone as much, I am noticing that a lot myself and I wonder how much harder it's going to be next year. But the true good friends will still be there, and we'll probably make new friends too!
