Pomp and Happy Dance !!!!


The Sky Didn’t Fall

The Earth Is

Still On Its Axis

The Globe

Did Not Burn Up

And We Did Not  Perish

In A Hail Of Meteors

..This Year


We Dazedly Announce The

High School Graduation


Middlest Grounded

Some Say 2012

Will Bring Armageddon

So We Are Gonna Party


The Class



When I began this blog in the Fall of 09, one of the reasons was that this child was giving me a fit. She is super intelligent and talented but easily distracted.
However as she always does...she came thru in the end!

I Am Hugely Proud of Her and I am So Excited to share this news! I have been about to pop keeping it to myself because I have known for about a week that it was going to happen. That's just it though. I didn't know for sure until early last week.  Final grades didn't come in until 5/27 . It has been touch and go all along but for most of this year we had a smooth flight. Until the last quarter when a series of personal incidents that I could swear were a curse meant to flatten this kid, caused a serious crash and burn. At the last possible minute her math teacher found a few points he misplaced in his stapler drawer or something and She Made It!

I would like to Thank Everyone who has come here and read and listened to me whine and complain and worry and offered Support and Good Advice to both myself and Middlest in our journey to get her through high school.

We also absolutely have to Thank GOD!

And Special Thanks to my Dear friend Elissa , who apparently has a direct line to him ; )

 If you are new here, as may be apparent, This is a miraculous cause for a Major break out your confetti and join in!

Gongratulations to My One and Only Middlest!

WE LUV U!!!!!!

and to paraphrase the Great Dr. Seuss.....

Out there things can happen

and frequently do

to people as brainy and

footsy as you.

And when things start to happen,

don't worry. Don't stew.

"Just go right along. You'll

start happening too."

So be sure when you step.

Step with care and great tact

and remember that "Life's a Great Balancing Act."

Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.

And never mix up your right foot with your left.

particularly when you are walking up to get that diploma....
