    I put the appropriate number of candles on my husband's birthday cake last night and the icing caught on fire! Laughed my butt off.

    Took Child to choreo week, arriving at 10:20 AM. Realized I had read the revised schedule wrong, ergo she was 20 minutes late, not 10 minutes early. Ugh. (Her schedule for today was supposed to be 10-12:30, 1-7. I somehow read the start time as 10:30.)

    Home. Read.

    To Towson, despite warnings of flash flooding in parts of MD. Double lesson with Nik!

    Home...only to learn that rehearsal would be getting out at 6 PM, not 7 PM. Had something to eat, then hopped back in the car.

    Videotaped the tap number.

    Home, then grocery store.

    Argument with Child over math. I don't know why kids think "Other parents don't make their kids..." is a convincing argument. (I'm all "Yeah? Well I'm not other people's parents.")

    Ugh! Doubly frustrated when I realized that I left the book I am reading at the studio. I only have 45 pages (out of 357) to go and I was really looking forward to finishing it. Wrote in my diary instead.

    wed...teach pyc...cook for hours;

    dinner for dad...

    cheese pierogies, sauerkraut bacon pierogies, cheesey potato dumplings, broiled brussel sprouts and sweet potato fries, ratatouille, stuffing with corn in it...2 types of quiche, two types of sausage, veal with onions, red velvet brownies, watermelon and pistachio pudding...

    first visit in 6 years where there were no passive aggressive remarks from his wife...deeply grateful....

    now just tying up lose ends for both jobs...writing letters verifying couples who have finished their pre-cana...and applying for my own equivalency certs .... anticipating a quiet is trashed...but a good feeling

    I hear you on that....I know you would never do something like this, but I was a less sensitive and kind parent...I often used shock value on my kids....while they rarely gave me the "other parents" argument, they WOULD give me the business about how I let one of them do thhis or that and it wasn't fair...and I would often, just to shock them into another time zone, simply reply "well that must be because I love them more"....I just wanted to get across to them how assinine their implication was....worked like a charm...they would just stand there aghast....and that ws the end of "you love her more" at our house

    FRIDAY--Dealt with a stupid and yet upsetting work crisis, worked out, drove to parents' house. Got to spend some time with baby nephew!

    SATURDAY--Set alarm and got up at 6:20 AM, on train by 7:10 AM, in NYC by 8:32. C train not running as frequently as usual due to track work, but get to park by 9:15. Get on line for free Shakespeare in Park tickets...but it's not looking good. Line is literally a mile long. Should have stayed overnight in the city or been a summer supporter. We meet up with friends and play cards on line. Eventually get the news that our part of the line isn't getting tickets, so we go with our Plan B and head to The Met!

    Child and her friend play on The Ancient Playground. We eat lunch at Dean and Deluca. Then we toured the museum, hitting the Ancient Egyptian, 19th and early 20th century European painting, and Modern and Contemporary sections. We then went up to the Rooftop Garden for snacks and beverages, and beautiful views of the city. Many people up there enjoying the beautiful weather. Child's friend's mom had a glass of champagne and felt very elegant. She also said that she has the most interesting adventures with us, and that we really get out and DO things, which made me feel good about the way Child and I do our thing.

    Had a bear of a time getting back to our hotel due to track work. Our plan was to take the 6 to the Q to the A. It turns out there was work being done on all three lines. We would have been better off taking a cab, esp since we were tired. Dinner at the Tick Tock Diner, then overnight in the city.

    SUNDAY--Early train back to NJ. Play time with cute nephew! He showed me that he knows how to climb up stairs. Child loves him. We spent another hour or two with my parents after my sister and the baby left, and then headed home ourselves.

    --Slept 10 hours to make up for the two early mornings on the weekend.--

    MONDAY--Deep breath, then confronted e-mail. I think things are settling down with the work problem.
    As I was reading through the weekend's e-mail, an incendiary e-mail came through to the whole faculty about another work issue, luckily one that doesn't affect me much, but wow. It is like one wing of the faculty decided to throw a verbal fire bomb at the administration.
    Work lunch about Living Learning Communities.
    Worked in my office. Prepared two new packets and did some tidying.
    Worked out to try to make up for the sins of the weekend. I came home 2-3 lbs heavier, so had to nip that in the bud!
