I am the mother of a college graduate. She wants to go on to graduate school, so eventually I will become the mother of a doctor. It feels so strange and so wonderful at the same time. I took some blurry pictures, which I will say was specifically for the blog. Luckily the other ones turned out well, and there are other photographers in the family.
The project at work is in full swing, which means going into the office, commute time, and lots of overtime. I've been more relaxed this year about work than in previous years. The managers expectations are more realistic this year, and that has made a big difference in my stress level.
We got a fence for the backyard, and are trying to get Zeus to get used to it. He is is easily distracted - a plane or train going by, a neighbor cooking something, children laughing, a school bus going by, etc. Basically, if we let him outside, he will stare at the door until we let him back in. He wants company and protection. Eventually I am sure he will get used to all the neighborhood noises, but until then, I don't feel like I am getting my money's worth from the fence.
I have been adding book reviews to my other blog High Road Reader, You can feel free to check them out at your leisure.
