Time Marches On

The Man-Cub and I had a meeting at the school earlier this evening. The meeting was with the Cub's academic advisor and the purpose was to determine the classes that the Cub will be taking next year, his sophomore year of High School. The child isn't even finished with his freshman year and we are already planning for the next step. Gah.

In news of a similarly depressing note, Hugh finished our taxes and they are now in the capable hands of our accountant. Hopefully, she will have our return prepared early next week and I will finally have the necessary information with which to tackle the FAFSA application. I am giddy with excitement.

That was sarcasm, in case you missed it.

On a brighter note, I accomplished a lot at Day Job, today, and, it felt good to see all of the check marks on my To Do list. One of the items on the list was to research the effects of marijuana on ADHD so that I might have some scientific evidence on which to base an argument that I will be presenting to a judge in court, tomorrow. Day Job is never boring, that's for certain.

What is boring is the current state of prime time television; the Olympics is hogging up all the airtime and I miss my favorite shows. Ok, I miss NCIS-LA and it isn't even on the same channel as the Olympics; it's still in re-runs and that sucks, so; I'll blame the Olympics if I want to.

Valentines Day is on Friday. This month's  Fun Club activity at Day Job was the construction and decorating of individual mailboxes for each employee. We will spend the rest of the week placing Valentine cards and treats in each box, to be opened on Friday. The activity took us all back in time, to our elementary school days, and has been one of the most participated-in activities that our committee has held so far this year.

Did I mention that Day Job is never boring?

Yes, the FAFSA sucks really hard the first time through. It gets easier in subsequent years as you A) - have no money left already and B) - really only have to update your income data for the new year. Just keep your kids pin codes so you can "sign" for them. (you didn't hear that from me)

And yes - I was saddened last night to learn that NCIS was a re-run, no doubt due to the Olympics. What with the delays for the holidays and Olympics, we should be seeing new episodes clear through summer, right?
