|I hate being sick. BLARGH!!

First off, only a few days went by between entries, instead of 8 months. There's something in my head I feel compelled to get down somewhere, even if it's nothing major. :-)
Ok, my sickness is not a deathly sickness, but this cold is enough to be annoying. It started Thursday, and hit full force yesterday. This bug has settled in my throat, and it feels like I ate sandpaper. My voice also has turned into a frog voice. Yuck!! Other than that, though, I feel fine, albeit tired.
Enough of that.
M is a full-blown metalhead, music-wise. We bought her a 4GB MP3 player, with a rechargeable battery to replace her current MP3, which she listens to so much she goes through batteries like water. Last night, she found one of the flash drives with a bunch of MP3's saved on it. We proceeded to spend the next three hours going through songs she wanted. The songs were mostly rock, hard rock, metal, and such. Only 1 out of 100 or so songs she didn't want. With M being M, she chattered a lot, too. It was really cool to develop that connection. I think that'll be something she'll remember for a long time.
M doesn't know it yet, but I dumped most of the rest of the MP3's on her player. She'll go bugnuts when she finds 251 songs on her player. LOL. There should be more... not sure why she didn't get them all. Something to figure out later.
We also knew that J is a smart cookie. This is underscored by the fact that she'll be scheduled to take four honors classes in September when she starts high school. Our school district has block scheduling (thus resembles college classes), so it's likely she'll take two honors classes the first semester, and the other two the second semester. She really is an amazing kid, and I think she's starting to realize that. :-D
I have also reconnected with an old online friend after about two years, and that has been nothing short of awesome. He's one of a few people in my life who keep me engaged. I'm lucky to be around a lot of smart and caring people... and you all know who you are, too. :-D
In other news, the
Pigeons Eagles lost today. I can't say it wasn't unexpected. They hadn't played well toward the end of the regular season. Oh well. Phillies training camp starts in a few weeks. :-D
Nothing else is streaming to the fingers, so it's time to wrap this up. I will attempt to not let a long period of time pass before posting again. :-)
