The Year of the Master's Degree
The new year has been a good one for us so far. B. started school on the 7th. I can see that this is pretty much going to dictate our entire year. B. has studied for hours everyday this week. He has been getting home around five or six, heading straight to the computer, and working there for 5 or 6 hours. It hasn't been bad for the rest of us--he's been home, and that's always nice. I don't think the noise of the house is bothering him, so it seems to be working. He has taken a couple breaks for racquetball, and lunch with a friend. He's been listening to the Read-Aloud that K. is doing a little at a time for the family--huge Peter Pan family here. She is reading "Peter and the Secret of Rundoon" -- which is the third in a series about the life of Peter Pan before the actual story of Peter Pan. Does that make sense? K. has read all three of the nearly 500 page books aloud to us over the past year or year and a half. I have to admit, though, that I rarely listen--it's just not my thing. It's something the kids are really enjoying with their daddy. Though I do get quite cracked up with the constant, "Daddy, are you awake? What did I just say? Daddy, keep your eyes open!" Anyway, I know that B. is stressed by the sheer amount of the work he has to do for 3 classes. I am praying that he will not be overwhelmed, and that all will fall into a good rhythm for him. The kids are back in school. The twins have an ocean diorama project due in a week that I am truly dreading. I hope we can get those put together Sunday. I have to go buy "oceany" things today. They had quite a fright yesterday as tornadoes were everywhere in our area yesterday. They had to sit in the hall for an hour or more while the storms passed. I hated being away from them. I am not scared of these storms anymore, but I know the kids still are bothered by them. I have a healthy respect for them, but I don't panic when the sirens go off anymore--it happens too often around here for that. I went and picked them up a few minutes early--as there was a little break in the storms. A school several miles away was struck, and the little community will be recovering for awhile. We have a lot of friends that were affected by this, but thankfully everyone is OK. You might have seen the picture of the school bus on top of the school! -- That's crazy. Actually, what is really crazy is that the wind hardly blew at our house, and the rain wasn't that torrential either. We are leaving this afternoon for our third JBQ/TBQ match of the year. We always look forward to our little trip--for the quizzing--and the shopping. The younger ones will be seeing the new Veggie Tales movie this weekend. That is sure to be fun. I joined Weight Watchers online this week--for their free one week trial. I don't know if I will continue or not. We'll just have to wait and see how that one goes...

Glad you guys are safe after yesterday's storms. I'm pretty terrified of that kind of weather, but thankfully we don't get too much of it around here!

Wow...your husband has a full plate right now. I pray that this will be a short season for your family.

Have fun shopping and seeing the Veggie Tales movie this weekend. Please post about the movie! I'm thinking of taking my crew, but it will have to be next weekend!

So glad you guys were safe. This sounds so scary. We never have anything like that happen up here.

I hope your hubby continues to do well and I think he'll find a good routine. You can remind him that my hubby worked full time, was in school full time earning a master's degree, plus I was pregnant with our youngest daughter. It was very tough but we survived! So, tell him that it can be done without going crazy! Hang in there!

I have some own blogs in this subject – on Rheumatoid Arthritis- I shall link this blog from them.
Regarding complete cure of Rheumatoid Arthritis I was simply wondering why we can’t find some thing useful in this direction. Since Rheumatoid Arthritis and its treatment is an important issue or information we need more specific information on this subject. I have found a nice informative guide on Rheumatoid Arthritis from following URL
