Today is starting to feel like a day of reprieve. The girl is still doing well. 🙂 🙂 🙂 My little slice of ocean is thriving, and Papa helped me to do the water change this morning. I had a good phone chat with a long distance friend, and I was able to get an appt for this afternoon to get little guy’s hair cut. The six line wrasse ate some prepared and non-live food for the first time today. And, let’s not forget, it’s almost Friday Night Madness. Woo Hoo!!
Cut the drama
How does your garden grow?
With tentacles and fishey smells
And nerite shells all in a row.
I’m thinking I should stay away from poems and limerics when I get back to writing. 😉 And yes, I will get back to it.
One of the biggest challenges to living in this city without money or connections is school for the kids. Little guy will be trying for a spot in a middle school that is amazing. My big guy went there, but there’s no guarantees for siblings. Makes me want to bite my nails, but it makes sense. It’s an extraordinary (but very small) school that requires a huge commitment from each child. In return, they make a huge commitment to your child, and show the kids to doors that we wouldn’t even know existed if it weren’t for them. I’m hoping he’s offered a spot, and hoping he’ll want to go if it’s offered.
For now, I’ll just take a deep breath and enjoy that we are having a one day reprieve in our weather, it’s mild today.
