the kids and I have an interesting discussion, and I doodle to escape work.

Sarah came to me earlier with an amused look on her face. It seems the dogs were going at it. Good thing one of them is fixed! That lead to a whole interesting discussion on sex, because I was partly trying to quash the idea that the dogs were “doing a bad thing”, as Sarah so delicately put it. I was also trying to figure out how to explain that people didn’t do it like dogs did. “At least not most of the time.” says Addison.

Addison joined in to tell me how yesterday he missed his Sex Ed class, since he had a bad earache and I had to go pick him up early. They were going to discuss Sexual Harassment. For 12 year olds?

“Don’t worry, Mom,” he explained after I raised my eyebrows, “I already learned all about it from the Drew Carey Show!”.

Great. Between t.v. and conversations on the back of the bus, I think I’ll try desperately to keep those lines of communication open.

Anyway, it’s snowing again and school was canceled. Thank God, because I needed to sleep in (see sidebar). Also, Ron is away overnight again. He had to take some Safety Training at this pulp mill he frequently sell his software to. Mostly he seems to sit around and gab, but he gets paid well for it.

I’m writing this now because I needed a break from work, what else is new? Anyway, I’m reorganizing the Projects section of the craftlady site. You can look at the new catalogue section here. Any comments would be appreciated. It is still in the testing stage. I asked my craft list to poke around and have a look at it to help me find all the boo boos.

I’m not really into St. Paddy’s day this year. I’m really put out how it seems okay to stereotype the Irish as a bunch of boozers. So for your amusement, here’s some doodles I did.

Side note:
Okay, so I’m still reading Susan Powter. But, as is my habit, I started another book called “Revelation” yesterday. One of those medical thrillers. I finished it at 11:30 last night.
