Late October? Already??
So back to the blog. Just hang on a sec while I dust this thing off....whoo...whoo... ah, that's better. :-)
Since I've just gotten to spend two consecutive evenings out (quite the rarity), one to celebrate Lil B's Birthday (HBD Lil!), and one to toast Michelle's awesome engagement (and glitterific ring!), thought I'd send 'em some shout-outs.
The Monkey is back in school, of course, Pre-K...and this year she's been bumped into the most advanced class in her school. Kinda nice, since a few months ago they weren't sure if they were gonna bump her into an integrated class at all. (Integrated = top level kids thru the special ed system + 'typically developing' kids from the area). She's doing great, and I admit I found it kinda funny to get an email home from her teacher about using "good words instead of bad words", since when she started at the school last year she spoke barely any words! (Now they're getting finicky??)
Speaking of her school, the big annual Fundraiser is coming up soon... November 9. If anyone would like to buy raffle tickets (or have their arm twisted to buy raffle tix!!!), they're only $10 each, and there are some really awesome prizes (spa days, basketball tix, high-end fashion items... even a trip for 2 to Mexico!!). Please let me know!!!!!!
And our sad news, Alana and I bid our farewells to Cassie the WonderBeagle a little over a month ago. She lived a happy, healthy 15+ years, and when the tumor that she'd been coping with so well finally took over - as we knew it was bound to - there was no way I could watch our furry little best buddy suffer any longer than necessary. It was hard to do, but I'm so grateful she had this second-puppyhood going on, and really got to enjoy her last few months. We'll always love and miss our Sassy Cassie.
