Day 6 - Friday

A rainy day is a GREAT day to lay around, IMO. And that's what I did for most of the day.
Cooked a big veggie soup.

-ACC classes from 9 - 1 p.m.
-Came home and talked about selling back some of the books he bought but won't need. Called several ACC bookstores to check on hours. Missed it...closes at 2 p.m.
-Did the dishes, happily and without prompting. (It really was getting bad) He said that he likes doing them because he thinks about stuff while he works on them. And THAT works for me!
- He & I set up a blog for him.He's never done that before. He likes to talk a lot and has a lot of opinions about politics and human nature. This will be a good place for him to unload. He has stories in his head that he wants to work on as well.

- up early to read Fan Fiction
- to work from 9 - 4:30
- picked her up from work and went straight to Ballet Austin
- traffic was bad, so she was late to first day of the Triple Threat Musical Theatre class
- Sang, danced, and acted from 5:30 - 8 p.m. Loved it. (1 class and 1 workshop)
- One of the teachers pulled me aside to say that she was really bright and enthusiastic. During that conversation, I mentioned that she was homeschooled. He quickly responded, "Oh, that's why she was so great to work with!" It seems the homeschooled kids in the class don't suffer from the same peer pressure inhibition that their schooled counterparts do. At least in this class.
- Came home and packed for her Dallas trip the next day.

- up late -around 11 (when I got home from Curves)
- cleaned up room a little
- wrote an essay about why her Cheerleading coach deserved a special award. She really did a good job with this. Yes, it needed some proofing, but her content was organized well and her spelling has drastically improved
- spent a lot of time on email and myspace. Had a blow-up with a couple of her cheerleader teammates. Lots of drama & tears. Finally resolved at 1:30 a.m.
