Happy Memorial Day, and may the house elf of choice show up

Turning the corner on a new week, and in the U.S., this is also a holiday.

Know one Pixie family can use a small platoon of moving fairies.  Suspect we could all benefit from some helping hands, one way or another.  (The cats are being totally unhelpful with the polishing up of the albatross...)

What's the news in your neighborhood?

Wednesday Whining: Get Me to the School on Time Edition

Remember the email from Muffin Man's school last week? Today's the day we go in to talk with three of his teachers. Frankly, I think a disrespectful tone is something THEY could deal with without needing any attention from his parents, but let's face it, he comes by his disrespectful tone naturally.

My thoughts today are entirely with PK as she navigates her mother's declining health in the midst of all her other stress. Fireplacing cancer.

Spring is Definitely Not in the Air

Greetings Pixies!

Well, up here in Middle Earth Canada, it is not Spring. On my way to drop Tilty Kitty off at the vet for her ear scope this morning, I saw two women walking in our neighbourhood wearing parkas and toques. *sigh*

Keep Calm and Carry On

Sending much love to all the Pixies facing stuff right now.  Last week's edition featured the most comments ever, so this week is starting early.

AW:  This doesn't roll around so often as one would like, but a nice dinner out with friends is really wonderful.

W:  Lingering albatross.  The one I meant to finish drafting this past week.  AW:  Didn't cancel the dinner out.

What's happening in your life?

(House) Closing Whine Week

W: I am ready to get this over and done with. Stressy dreams about having to move out here and put our stuff in storage, etc.

AW: Scheduled for Friday.

W: I comprehend about a quarter of the information that is presented to me re: loans, title, escrow, closing costs, etc.

AW: Scheduled for Friday.

On the rest of the week's agenda: appointment with principal at the new school, Mini's field trip, crossing things off my list(s)
