Whew. What a Week.

Last week was just one of those weeks in which many obligations converged. But I did everything. Here the things I did:

-Went with Will to the Franklin Institute
-Baked butterscotch brownies for my church fair
-Worked at the church fair
-Wrote an article for a Montessori newsletter on "21st Century Skills"
-Researched Verizon grants for the local literacy center
-Skimmed a chapter of Karen Armstrong's The Great Transformation for my Friday book group
-Went to book group
-Turned in a Gifted IEP request for Jack
-Volunteered in Jack's class for "Word Rings"
-Met with Will's teachers
-Cooked dinner, did laundry, made lunches, bla bla bla

Everything went very well. I will be glad to discourse at length about almost all of the above on request.

Meanwhile, on to more important topics . . . . Today. Is. My. BIRTHDAY!!!! And I need to go, right now, and I mean right now, to get the new picture on my license, because if I don't then I'll be an illegal driver tomorrow. And I read in PennDOT's literature that "PennDOT recently enhanced its policies . . . to reduce identity fraud." In the next paragraph, and this is the part that causes me to tremble, "Because these requirements have changed, you may at times experience additional wait times at our Driver License Centers." Translation: You will wait longer than you already had to, believe it or not, only this time the employees will be even more crabby. Happy birthday to me.

Have a great one, Lauren. Also, the one that's on Naaman's, I believe, NEVER has a wait.

Happy birthday!

I've only ever had to wait at NJ DMV. PA has been kind to me.

Watch--I say that now, and next year, when I need to get my picture updated, I'll be there all day!

Sounds like your last week was a lot like mine. Hang in there, and I hope this birthday week is much more relaxed.

Happy Birthday!
As for the IEP, I have one scheduled for Bug Boy on Oct 30th at TKP. The gifted coordinator from SRS will be there. I did NOT requrest her, but they want her along because of his testing scores. We shall see.
Anywho, can't stand the wait at PennDot, especially with MY TWO.
