It's my birthday and I am sitting at the kitchen counter listening to my Spike Jones and His City Slickers station on Pandora. Talk about some FUN music.   If you haven't listened to Pandora, I suggest you check it out.  You can plug in any artist or song and they will not only start playing that artist's music but any other music that belongs to that same genre.  Of course, I have been pleasantly surprised with the mix of artists that they have paired up with Spike Jones.  I expected artists like Ray Stevens and Danny Kaye, but I didn't expect them to through in some Johnny Cash or Jerry Reed, but I don't object to them at all.  Right now they are playing Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini.  lol  We listened to The Monster Mash and Purple People Eater earlier.  Remember those songs? Fun Music!

So with my fun music playing over the computer let me tell you what's going on.  First,  we still have the house in North Carolina.  Hopefully, (crossing every appendage) we will close this week.  Will it ever end?  A broken floor board in the upstairs garret deemed the house non-saleable.  Fortunately, the buyers offered to fix the board and have the house reinspected.  It is not too late for that tornado I am praying for.  Come on, Lord.  Give a girl a break and let us collect the insurance money on it.

School is going ok.  We are still trying to find our rhythm.  I am praying about next year.  I have been seriously looking at Classical Conversations but for my kids to be in that program I will most likely have to teach the Challenge classes.  To teach, I will have to go to some training meetings and it could be that my children would be the only ones in the program since the CC group in Wenatchee is relatively young.  For whatever reason, I have all the paper work filled out but I can't bring myself to mailing them off. This is still a huge prayer matter for me.  Another option I am looking at is that Tapestry of Grace offers on-line classes.  This means that we can continue with our current school program but that my kids would have a TOG class to answer to and to be held accountable with. Big decisions.  So many choices!  Need LOTS of prayers.

So other than my silly music, there is not much going on today.  I hope to walk to town and pick up a few things. Todd and I might go out for dinner or we might just take the whole family.  Bonnie is doing the laundry and the kids have cleaned up the house.  I think it will be a great birthday.
