Post Number One

So that weird random rectangle on the top left of my page is a sign that I am, indeed, certifiably crazy. I have decided to challenge myself to posting every day for the entire month of November, and that emblem is the proof that I've entered into similar community of crazy people. Now, it says nowhere that the entries need to be of any particular length, or quality, so I'm promising nothing other than volume. And I'm making this commitment when? On the eve of what is going to be my busiest three months in the entire first year of grad school. I'm starting rehearsals for Little Women tomorrow night. Rehearsals will continue through the opening of the show, the week of Dec. 11th (with the exception of Thanksgiving weekend - yay!) and Elephant Man rehearsals start Nov. 30 and run until the opening of the show, the week of Jan. 21. (with the exception of Christmas - yay!) How I'm going to be at rehearsals for two shows at once, I'm not really sure.
We're starting to have an actual babysitter this week - someone coming on a semi-regular basis that we're going to pay for her services. Not sure how we're going to pay her yet, but we'll take it one step at a time.
Halloween was different this year... it was 80 degrees and we went to the beach for the day! It was gorgeous, but I think we wore out the kids too much and they dragged their feet all through trick-or-treating. Theirs were by far the cutest costumes..I'll post pictures on here as soon as I can get it together.
I have SO much homework to do tonight, but I spent 2 hours at a cubscout popcorn sale this afternoon instead of working. At least that's the last one of those for the year.
Feel free to drop frequent comments here, so I know my efforts at rambling are at least being viewed! Come back soon, y'all!

Reading. Yup. And I owe you a check. I'll take care of that tomorrow.

Hang in there, this is the fun part. Just...let it wash on over you, and go with the flow.

You are doing great! Wish I could be there to do more baby sitting. It was really fun! It took me back many years.
Going to the beach on Halloween is a real plus! Enjoy!
You can do it! You are registering for Spring semester already. Can you believe it????

You are crazy; I don't see that triangle. :)

So happy you're keeping me entertained via a blog. Can't say I've touched mine in months. However, to redeem myself, I'm doing the 29gifts and am on day 7 of giving and blogging about that. So, I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Missing you tons. So glad you are over-achieving. :D
