Last night DH wrote the first "paid in full" check, and transfered a goodly amount into savings. Can I get a "woo" and two "hoo"s?
Our tax refund will make a sizable payment on another account, and then we will be snowballing indeed.
Saturday we are going to see a play. The tix were a bit expensive but we really only get 2 or 3 dates a year with the lack of sitters (and that's counting the company party, how pathetic), so I'm not going to feel bad about it. We're seeing an interactive version of Romeo and Juliet. Should be interesting.
Other good things have been happening as well. ODD has gotten moved back to third grade. I always knew that placement decision was wrong. We have her dyslexia testing scheduled; she won't qualify for any services but at least we'll know what's going on. I do still believe there is something.
ODD and YDD both made honor roll for first semester. DH says "that means Mommy made the honor roll, too". Well, OK, I'll take that.
ODD is doing triplets in her music lessons. Being the nerdy geek I am, I immediately thought of Bolero...that's rich in triplets! Which gave me a chance to show the girls a video from a moment I'll never forget: Torvill and Dean, anyone? They were suitably impressed, although ODD points out that those are much faster than the ones she's doing in Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. And YDD kept waiting for them to have a spectacular crash...
