Oh, boy! I volunteer, along with other parents, serving lunch one day a week at my son's school.

You are a brave woman! I'd say you deserve a Papal blessing for that.

 ha2ha  It's kind of (sort of) fun, actually, although I've turned into one of those surly workers who just dumps a ladle of peas (or whatever) on the kids' trays. The little ones never answer when you
ask if they want a particular item -- just give a blank stare -- so I just plunk it down regardless. Also, now that my son is in sixth grade and is entering the I'm-humiliated-by-my-parents stage (so much
fun), I get a kick out of mock-threatening to embarrass him. I'm usually an "obedient" mom and skulk out without approaching him and his buddies, though.

But he never knows for sure though, does he? <evil grin>

"Is it Friday?"

"It damn well better be!"

That's what I was thinking all day yesterday! We are in the process of applying for a $26,000 grant to digitize our newspaper microfilm and put it online. My boss is an older gentleman and he hates using the computer so I was summoned about every 15 minutes on Thursday and Friday with cries for help. On Thursday one of the computers got a virus from the Internet and I had to format it. All this while trying to get the newsletter done. My Windows 8 computer was acting very snotty towards my Windows 7 templates so I had to start from scratch. Yeah, I'm glad it's the weekend!

Hehe! It is Labour Weekend for us :)

Enjoy KE! Every weekend is a long weekend for me because I don't work Mondays.  :)

Congratulations! I'm sure there's a lot of celebrating going on in your neck of the woods.

I found it touching that a bunch of celebratory (and respectful, from what I've read, i.e., not a drunken mob) fans converged to celebrate at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, site of the bombings.

Yes, I feel the same. Our year here in the Boston area started bad. However we are Boston Strong! It's more than a saying, it's a reality. I'm glad they remember.
There were only isolated incidents of vandalism (that I'm aware of). Mostly college students.

You morning people astound me! I need to be more like you. My state of mind during the winter would be better if I got more daylight into my brain.
