Once a month, ugh

Yes, it’s true… *sigh* I’ve become one of those once-a-month-whether-I-need-it-or-not bloggers. Alas. I don’t even have any new excuses – entropy and chaos have had me in their inescapable grasp for most of 2005. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel! It looks like I may be heading into a calmer 2006…

In any case, here’s my update on all the recent chaos in my life. I’ve already discussed the selling of the house and moving across the county, so I’m gonna have to come up with some new interesting topics to keep my readers awake.

Cheerleading: I know, it’s not really new. But driving V back and forth to practices and games eats up a lot of my time, so it’s worth mentioning. Plus the only picture I have available for this entry is Victoria cheering. This weekend we had a game on Saturday (we won) and a cheer competition on Sunday (the girls came in 3rd out of 16, and I am so proud of all of them!)

Picture here

Job: I believe I mentioned that I was looking for a new job, and I am happy to report that as of Monday I will be spending my geeky working hours in the service of SocialText. It’s a fantastic opportunity to work with some of the smartest folks in my particular geeky industry and I’m really excited.

School: Yet again, the boy was having some issues with the kids’ school. So we moved them to a new school, 5 minutes from our house, and we’re thrilled with the change. For those of you familiar with the D&D millieu, the school we had them at before was heavy into ‘Law’ – These Are The Rules and now Let’s Apply Them. My boy was in the office every day for a new transgression and seriously stressed all the time. The new school is, I would say, solidly Chaotic Good. Each kid has their own learning plan and goals, and they are very adaptable – my boy is thriving, as is my girl. Did I mention thrilled? Oh, and for those of you who understand the Law/Chaos division and need somewhere to waste valuable time, please check out Order of the Stick. Go on, I’ll wait.

Susan: No, she’s not chaotic 🙂 I just wanted to update anyone interested and tell you all that she’s doing great! She’s learning to walk again, working a couple days a week, and really looking and feeling like a regular person again.
