    Great update, Kim!

    Today the kids are beyond excited...they have a half day of school, then their sitter is taking them to my Dad's place in NYC and dropping them off. They'll have lunch, go to this awesome Lego exhibit (Art of the Brick : Discovery Times Square), hang out with their Grampas, and then get dropped off at my office, which they haven't seen (since we've moved so many times).

    They're even excited that we're going to have Chinese food tonight for dinner.

    Lucky happy children.

    I can't believe school ends this week!

    We have our summer sitter worked out and I'm slowly adding things to their summer, classes & camp & stuff, a few gaps to fill, but at least we're getting started.

    Our department intern passed away this morning. 21 year old, healthy girl, came down with what she thought was the flu last week, was hospitalized over the weekend, and passed away this morning. Her father also works here and is someone I work with quite often.

    It's a sad day around here...we are all just trying to get wrap our brains around it.

    Kim, I was so glad to read that about your son's last game and how well it went.

    The part-time position I have been wanting is being posted next month. They technically have to post it internally for 5 days, even though the position is being made pretty much for me. This means, friends, that come September I get to be the one taking DD to school each morning AND picking her up, and I will only work 24 hours a week!!!! Every.Friday.off......It's been a dream for years. Or, I could do 3 days a week and have Mondays and Fridays off, but I would have to work 7:30 - 4:30 like I do right now. Oh boy, I am so excited.

    Kim~I'm so glad it all worked out at least for that day and that he feels better about baseball.
    Laurie~Sounds like an awesome day! I'm so jealous!
    Carrie~Very sad and tragic news. 21 is just too young.
