Missing

But still here. What a few days I've had and today, just enough time to breathe. Tomorrow I begin the season of work with long days. Up earlier and home later. And I'm tired already and haven't been to the grocery for the week's food or anything. I do have a load of whites in the washer and the darks on the floor in front of the washer.

Got my daughter's taxes signed and into envelopes for her to mail. We also took her out for lunch but the place we drove 45 minutes to was closed, so we drove back home and ate locally. Tomorrow I'll package our taxes (and the payments) and then mail them on Tuesday and pay the property taxes on the house. April sucks. But the taxes weren't as bad as last year.
Remember that nightmare????

I spent the first few hours this morning working with my collection of letters and words. Test Piloting in Lesson One: Part Three. The rest of the class is working on Lesson Two. So far, this class isn't teaching me anything. You read the lessons and work on things yourself and ask questions via email if you think you may be going in the wrong direction (but as a student, do you even realize this?) and someone answers. The instructor or one of the other students. I've even been asked to give tips. It's all not what I expected. And I don't think I have done any of the assignments correctly, yet. Today I am supposed to write. About text and letters. Does this count?

My daughter and I were wondering (as we drove the 1.5 hour round trip to "no lunch"), why is there only one shoe lost on the road curb?. Why didn't the person lose both? We noticed several different, single, shoes on one busy corner. Did they fall off people's feet, which were hanging out the car windows? The shoes must have only been there a short time, as the snow plows would have scooped them up over the winter. Any thoughts?

G is taking me for ice cream. I want ice cream. And a nap.

I saw a very nice "solo" skateboarding shoe on the side of the road yesterday on my run. I thought that the boy who gets home (from wherever he went) and finds out he only has one shoe will be quite upset. And will he know where to look? :-)
