Where's Barb

Raking. Caring for her sick hubby. Raking some more. Taking Evan to bagpipe lessons. Raking some more. Inventing a transcript for Evan to apply to the PSEO program.

Sorry, not a lot of blogging going on. I'll try to do better the rest of the week.


  1. Busy Barb! I hope Chris feels better. Transcripts...sounds pretty hard to do. Raking is not fun. We just let the leaves blow around and kill our grass unless I can convince the kids to make a fun huge leaf pile to play in which they actually did yesterday.At least then the leaves are all in one area.I am pretty sure they will not make it into bags,though.
    It sounds like you could use a later afternoon tea break!

  2. Tina,
    Chris is starting to feel better which is good. The poor guy has had such a rough week as he can't really miss work, so he just has to buck up and go in anyway (tell Jeff to steer clear of him :) )
    I currently have three piles out on my lawn as I was too hat and tired to bag them up today. I'll have some of the kids do it tomorrow.

    The transcript wasn't too hard (I have Edu-track which pretty much spits one out for you if you've entered in their classes and grades - although grades are a whole 'nother thing, since I don't test my kids in all subjects). Anyway, the official transcript is finished and will be on its way to Normandale tomorrow. Yippee!

    Now that tea sounds really good....


Thanks for visiting. We would love to hear from you!
