It has always amazed me how a director can get so many kids to do what he wants. Kid just love to goof off. Even in Annie. Tthe kids are great. Some folks just have to love kids and have a lot of patience.

I am surprisingly not down about the fact my hands are getting worse. they are my everything for cakes, typing, cooking, etc. But it is another challenge that I can figure out!
I hear ya Laurie. My little fingers are bent all out of shape. I always have to go back and check all my capital T's. And there are days when it can take me an hour or more to get them to move without pain. The keys on the right side of the board always give me trouble. Fortunately, I am ambidextrous. And thank goodness for spell check. I have to keep my eyes on the screen and go back to make any corrections. Some I catch and some I miss.

When I see errors that others make, I just assume they have the same problems I have and overlook them all the time.

Here's hoping you have a good day like I am having. Don't look at your hands as a problem, but another challenge life has given you to overcome.

Or a group of kids that enjoy what they are doing. They will cooperate as long as they are doing what they want.

that is definitely the key. i was watching some features from the harry potter movies a while back and the kids said that they kept coming back because the directors and others made it fun!

I learned that when making "bread rounds" for smorgasbord sandwiches, to cover with a damp dish towel to prevent the rounds from drying out while making all the rounds and that adding a bit of oil to a mayo-based potato salad does boost the flavor.

I knew about the bread thing from making hundreds of sandwiches for both a homeless ministry and when I apprenticed for a commercial caterer. But that is interesting about the oil, CW, do you use olive oil? evoo?

Did you put "bread rounds" in parentheses because proper Scandinavian sandwiches aren't round? Or weren't you making them on the proper heavy rye bread?

I learned a lot this week on many levels.
1. I have such a caring and understanding family here.
2. Sometimes what seems impossible can be fixed with a little ingenuity and some money. Purchasing a new desk and chair haven't removed my pain, but are making typing and sitting easier so I can spend more time with all of you!
3. Even with my lessened abilities, I can still put out great meals. I have gone back to my school days where mise en place was drilled into us every day. If it is a complicated meal I start prep as early as the night before (we eat dinner at 1 pm) and keep it in the fridge. It is great!
4. I miss my Dad and wish he could be here to watch the Western Final and Grey Cup games (CFL Football) with me in the upcoming weeks.
