My mum is finally home! Yesterday at 6:15 I rang E and reminded her to GET UP AND GET READY FOR WORK. This morning I rang...rang...rang...until 7:25 when I left and went to see if she was in bed or at work. She had left -- but I was frazzled and late for work. I wouldn't've called if she hadn't missed Friday -- too bad she couldn't just pick up the phone (giving me the finger, I'm sure). Still, it was the best possible outcome. Exhausted all day. Tiff came midday -- she will work in my Movie Studio. I have a huge number of two kinds of extra kids -- ones who come and ask if they can do something specific, then work their way into being around all the time, and the others who say, "I want to be in art PPPLLLEEEEEEEZZZZZZZ," but don't do anything specific except plead. I told Becky that Erika (6th grade) is my "constant companion." I'm not sure how it happened -- but she took photos and made a class webpage, and is now working on another webpage of her own written work. And Charlene (4th)-- wanted my help emailing children in other countries... and is now magically making a webpage based on her science project (sadly, it is about aliens from space -- they don't make science projects like they used to).
