Faythe and I built a snow-fort in the front yard this week out of the snow we’ve shoveled from the driveway. Today Esperanza decorated it with food-coloring and water. It looks like a giant snow-cone! The cheerful colors are much appreciated by this neighborhood, who all seem to be suffering from cabin fever. It’s hard to believe with all this snow that spring will ever come, but even in these cold winter day I can feel the change coming. My headaches are almost gone and the hats will soon go in the closet again. (Smile)
School has posed some interesting challenges this semester. My accessibility services have been challenged by the head of the math department and if they win the dispute, I will not be able to earn any degree. Although everyone I talk to is frustrated and offended that they could do such a thing, no one seems to have the authority to force them, or allow me math substitution. The math dean won’t even meet with me on this matter until fall 2009. Guess He’s hoping I’ll transfer to a different school, or drop out by then. Guess He doesn’t know who he’s dealing with, I am a patient woman.
For all of you who know my sister Sarah, she has announced she is expecting a baby boy in June. I am so excited! Faythe and Noah are eager to welcome him into the family. Faythes’ response was,” YES!” several whoops and a victory dance.
Happy Valentines day to all of you and happy birthday to my nephew Orin Jones!
