Good for you, Michelemarie. I commend you for being a great mom. My 12 year old is working on his own homework and school projects now and we have less conferences with his teachers....thank goodness. It was just a matter of time for him to get his act together. DH works less and spends more time with him too. That is what our son needed to...a Dad.

Thanks Dina! I'm glad your son is doing good too! It is soooo hard to parent a teen - God help us all!

My most recent celebration is my kids report cards. Madeleine got all A's and Kate (Bugs) brought home an overall average of 94.5%!! Holy cow! I am so proud I could bust!

Wow, you all have such great kids.....maybe one day I'll have a DC kid too, lol. It makes me really happy to hear about all these good things happening to good people. :)

My celebration is we finally fixed a date for me to join DH in Italy. I spent a fortune on car insurance (like a month's salary type fortune) and have arranged the cats and me to go in the Channel Tunnel in our car and drive over on Annunciation holiday in Italy. So, it suddenly feels very soon, and although I am now having packing-terrors, the idea that soon DH, the cats and I will all be in one place again is so good!

We had our first snow of the season last night. A couple inches at our house. Aidan woke up and said "I'm gonna put on my boots and my jacket to go outside!" He was excited and played in the yard for a half hour until his "thumbs got too cold."

Cool Alix! Congratulations to your girls. They take after their smart mom. Thanks Michelemarie. I even got an email from one of his teachers that he did really well on his last math test. I was afraid to open the email, then finally...took a deep breath, opened it and it was GREAT NEWS! He had passed his test. Sigh!
