- I'm off all week for our last-ever Midwinter Break. The kids are rotating illness, but it's been pretty good so far anyway. Ellen and I shared a real live wheat-and-butter croissant yesterday while the boys were at preschool, then went and played at the tot gym with SAHMs and SAHDs and 20-year-old nannies. She's so much more adventurous than the boys were at her age, willing to go on the bigger slides and try the bounce house and stuff.

- James took the morning off to take the boys to the doctor (Andrew has an ear infection) so I could spend some time with college friends who were visiting for the first time in 5.5 years. They brought their daughter, 4 months younger than Ellen, and the little girls had a blast. It also confirmed just how verbal Ellen really is. The other girl has over 100 signs, but Ellen? She'll tell you how it is.

- I'm in an exercise rut. I still run most days, though not this morning since we feared a Bobby melt-down, but I haven't really gotten faster or stronger all year. I need to get back to doing yoga in the evenings, but once I settle my butt on the sofa it's way too easy for it to stay there.

- My brother and his girlfriend are visiting in 2 weeks. I wish I had more time and energy to clean.

- It's a couple of months out yet, but I'm going to apply for a new job. Seattle Public Schools is starting a brand-new math, science and technology elementary school opening in West Seattle. Starting a new program, focusing on what I'm good at, getting away from the drama at my current workplace, keeping public school benefits: doesn't that sound good? Plus, West Seattle is at the top of our list if we were to move from this house. That probably wouldn't be for at least 2-3 more years, when we're done paying for day care. Anyway, I'm already starting to scheme about my resume, the interview, and program ideas. Don't count those chickens yet, Liss....

Oh God, don't we all?

New job sounds so exciting and makes me wish there was something coming up i could escape current job into. I shall live vicariously through your exciting prospect ;)

If you get that job, maybe you will teach my kid someday.

Also - they are getting rid of mid-winter break, and only going to one break?
