I figured out that the internet at your building went out when we got cut off this morning. I wonder when it will be up.
I was so excited to tell you that your paycheck actually arrived! Woo Hooo! Your first paycheck for this job did what it was supposed to and hit our US account on the day it was supposed to. Phew...too bad I couldn't tell you so you could stop worrying about it. You know, you have a building full of computer geeks and you can't keep your internet up and running? What does that say about your collective talents? Hmmmm. Hey, I'm just saying...
In other exciting news, the fact that you've started doing the 30 Day Shred has kept us motivated to keep going ourselves. As long as we don't skip one day, we'll remain ONE DAY AHEAD OF YOU. Oh, yeah! Oops. Was that gloating? Valiant made me do it. I would never ever crow about being ONE DAY AHEAD OF YOU! Darn, there is is again. I can't seem to help myself.
The lady at the Post Office is starting to remember me. I've sent a ton of packages your way this past week (okay, five, but still) and I have at least one more to go. Did you know that you can send Flat Rate Priority Mail Large Boxes to an APO address for only $12.50 no matter how much it weighs? Well, now you know. One of my boxes actually weighed more than 17 lbs - the post lady was impressed!
In homeschooling news, Teaching Textbooks - Math 5 and Algebra are on their way for the kids next math levels. I love, love, love this program and am so glad I found it. I also ordered at writing program : Institute for Excellence in Writing's Student Intensive Writing program and am hoping for the same level of success we had with Teaching Textbooks. Fingers crossed. We stopped at the library and picked up two copies of To Kill a Mockingbird for the next Adolescent Literature seminar meeting in two weeks.
