Day 348 of 1000
I drove to Wilmington for a series of meetings at GE while the family slept in for a well deserved rest. When I got home, Kelly was just going out the door to one of two weekend baby-sitting gigs. This weekend is going to be a low stress weekend because there is really not much to do other than cut up the big branch of the persimmon tree that broke in our yard and work on hobby stuff. Kelly is going to draw. Christian is writing a python program to send web pages as images to his messaging phone (not a smart phone-all it can do is send and receive SMS messages and photos). I think he is doing this in rebellion because we have not yet bought him a Droid.
When I got home from my day trip, I laid out the kids schedule in my new Outlook.com calendar. Very cool. I like it a lot. If they added an office suite like Google Docs, I would make a complete switch. Oops. I spoke too soon they have it. There is no longer any reason to stay on Google. With a 7GB of free storage space it is a pretty amazing deal. At any rate, the kids seem to have pretty good schedules for the fall semester. The next challenge will be to buy books. I need to add Lorena’s classes to the calendar. Then we will know how chaotic our lives will be for the next four months. The really cool thing is that their classes end on November 30 with a half dead-week and finals in the first week of Decemeber so they will have quite a long Christmas break. They don’t go back to classes until January 9.
