random updates

i haven't posted in a while - been busy with, oh, you know, life.

sadie had a checkup, all is fine. she is 8 months, and weighs 17.6 pounds.

aidan is progessing in his speech therapy - he said "silly sadie!" at his last appointment. had me rolling. he'll say "more" and "please" but not "more, please" yet. but he can name all his colors and shapes, and most letters. and he tells me and himself "job job!" (ie - good job!) we're getting there!

i'm in training today and tomorrow... i teach a self-defense course at work called handle with care. it's designed to protect the officer as well as not injure the attacker, since we deal with juveniles. i love teaching it, and i always enjoy the yearly refresher training. i like teaching this class because so much of it involves how to address and deal with the youth we work with and influence their behavior before anything violent ever happens. i think it's great that a restraint technique class incorporates so much verbal de-escalation strategy before we even lay hand on each other. but anyway - i'm having fun.

i bought a dress on ebay for our dinner dance on feb 3. jerry thinks it looks weird. i'll show you a pic when i get it, and you can help me choose whether i keep it or bu y a new one and sell this one back to ebay.

anyway, it's time to get on home.

hasta luego.

    But did you have to sell plasma to pay for it? That's the bigger question. :)

    i love ebay!! and they're not all used clothes - many are new with tags. and yes, the dress i got is actually too long for me... usually they have measurements included in the description...

    and it's inexpensive enough that i don't have to sell plasma!!!

    That class sounds really cool. I need something like that--especially the verbal part.

    I love eBay for buying dresses! Yes, please post pics!
