Happy Rosh Hashanah to my Jewish friends (a day late). We had the traditional apples and honey in the faculty lounge at school.
Sarah was officially diagnosed with ADD (Inattentive type, not Hyperactive). She will start taking medication next week. We’ll see how that goes.
Today is my 33rd birthday. Sheesh. I remember when my mom was 33. I thought she was old. I bought beer the other day, and, for the first time, I wasn’t carded. Guess it’s all this gray in my hair. My mom sent me a Barnes and Noble gift card, with which I bought Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier, Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland, and The Queen’s Fool by Philippa Gregory. All three I’ve wanted to read for some time. I am starting with Girl in Hyacinth Blue as soon as I’ve finished re-reading the Harry Potter books. Aw heck. I can’t wait. I’ll just have to start it now. I ate supper with Maggie and Dylan at TGI Friday’s (Carrabba’s was too crowded).
Hurricane Ivan swept over my in-laws, who live near Gulf Shores, AL. The remnants downed trees and knocked out power (for some) in our area. Our air conditioner inexplicably broke during the storm.
