Today begins the final week of school for our district. They should have been out last week, but we had several snow days and have to make up for that. I know the district would lose state funds if we don't make up the days, but it's frustrating since I know the kids are restless and no real learning is going on. I'm tempted to keep them home friday, so they don't miss the first day of summer bowling league. (Bad Mom!) Oh well, it does mean I get one more paycheck before break.
Yesterday the kids went to a b-day party and Hubby and I went to Sam's Club and indulged ourselves with a new flat screen tv and a blu-ray player. It's a 32inch screen but only weighs about 25lbs and uses 44% less power. Also has less toxic stuff in it and recycled packaging, so our indulgence is helping the enviorment! We gave one of our old tvs to a neighbor and put one in the girls room, so everyone is happy :)
Hubbys company has ordered all employees to take a one week unpayed furlough, (Better than permanent paycuts!) so we may go out of town for a vacation. Hubby REALLY needs one!
As for fic, I'm really liking the idea of the AU I started with "Happily Ever After?" I may keep up with continueing snippits on how all their lives would go. I still will keep writing the "RingBearer" centric stories on Ff.Net as time permits. And I see some b-days are coming up, and I already have ideas for those...
