Apology Letter

To the old man at the bank...

I am sorry that my rowdy children were running around the bank lobby while I was trying to close one account and open another. I am sorry that my two year old screams... however it does not give you (someone who has been an adult for a LONG time) to glare at me and hold your hands over your ears. Seriously? She is 2 and is still learning what is acceptable and what is not. She was disciplined when we left, although that is none of your business. You on the other hand should know that covering your ears and glaring at an obviously overwhelmed mother is not socially acceptable! If you have a complaint about children running and screaming in the lobby feel free to write to that branch manager insisting that they put in a drive up teller, that way you can sit in your buick and listen to elevator music in peace.

Hope you have a quieter day (because I won't)

First day of School.

Um Hello is anyone there? I know I have been gone forever, but it has been summer and we have been non stop.... nevermind, I have just been lazy. The girls are growing like weeds. Yesterday was the first day of 6th grade for Natalie, she loved it. Her teacher speaks in sign language for most of the time so they will have the challenge of learning that. I love it! She has also decided to play the cello. Up until she came home yesterday she was going to play the violin, whoops change of plans and $1250.00 later (yes you can gasp, I did) she has the last 1/2 size cello from Fishburn.

Tonight is my first night back at school in 11 years. I am excited and scared at the same time. This semester I will go three nights a week. T/TH is Math and W is English. I hope I don't get lost! At the rate that finances and time allow Natalie and I should finish before me! 3 years part time and about 6 years full time for me to finish and 7 years for Natalie to graduate highschool. Granted when I am done it will be a doctorate. Who'd ever thought that I would want to be a doctor?!? This is going to be a long hard journey and I will need all the prayers I can get. Wish me luck!
