Thanks, K. I went back to work today and only felt dizzy once (walked into a wall too). I'm hoping tomorrow's even better. ;)

Ouch!!! How's your nose? The girls and I are coming down with something and we have our robotics qualifier on Saturday. One of the boys on the team is ill, also.

I think the girls might be getting sick because we were out on the soccer fields all weekend, and it was icy cold. It was like 25 degrees out there around 8:30pm. Bunny reffed all weekend. She reffed 10 games over the weekend. Muncho had a tournament and she reffed 2 games, too. I'm so proud of them both. It was miserable out there, and they both did what they were supposed to and handled their jobs.

I had the joy of throwing a coach off the fields. The stupid dork actually threatened one of our refs. The poor ref was all of about 14, and the coach weighed at least 350lbs. I wanted the club to press charges on the guy. Can you believe the guy actually threatened a kid??? Never mind the fact that he's a ref, he's a kid! We didn't let the kid walk around unescorted after that.

Muncho's team won their tournament. I was really proud of her. She worked hard, and we're having a great time this season. The coaches we have are great, and Muncho is getting plenty of field time. She dropped over 4 inches off her waist! She looks great. Bunny loves her coach, too, and I think he's really great coach, too. Bunny just casts off both her wrists. She broke them during a game. She was running backwards and tripped and fell on both her wrists. We brought her to the hospital and she had been complaining about just one. Sure enough, it was busted. A few days later, she said her other wrist was hurting, also. We brought her back to the orthopedist, and she had busted that one, too. She's definitely my kid. Four broken bones, and she hasn't even made it to double digits yet <grin>.

The girls are both flourishing this year on the fields. Schoolwork is a different story. I've been really cracking down on them, and it hasn't been pretty. I have them using an online program for a few subjects, and they don't like all the repetition. They need it, but they aren't thrilled with it. I keep thinking they'll thank me later, but it doesn't make it any easier. I thought it was just us, then I talked with a friend about all the problems, especially with Muncho. She said, "Sounds like typical 12yo behaviour to me." She's actually getting better now. The hardest part was during the summer when we were just getting started on the programs. Now, she's doing much better. Either that, or I care less <grin>.

Anyway, that's an update from Georgia. Take care, and have a happy Ho Ho.
