I've spent the last 5 days working, at one place or another. I have been able to FaceTime chat with my daughter. I showed her the trophy her softball coach dropped off. He had them each made with the players' name on them. We also discussed her report card and summer worksheets that I emailed to her for her to complete. She may be a grade ahead in math, but it doesn't hurt to do a worksheet once a month to keep the material fresh. Grandma has instituted a couple more chores this summer since she's getting older. She's also paying her an allowance for the help, so that's a definite incentive. My daughter LOVES her iPod touch and buys games/songs when she has money to put into the iTunes account.
I've been doing laundry and puttering, but the rain just makes me wanna go to sleep. I need to change the sheets and I may take a shower and do just that. It's supposed to rain for the next couple days, too. So I'm hoping our luck holds pertaining to the integrity of the roads. Here's a sunshine ... maybe it will help.
