February 2008

I have a new article on the history of the Oscars at http://www.CinCity2000.com on the front page. I might have more articles in the next few weeks, so you can check there, or check here, as I’ll update any news as such here.

Also, I have a new look as shown by the before and after photos.

And we took Thomas sledding, as also seen in the photos.


Alas, my semester is chugging along already with little progress so far on my thesis. Sadly, I was in a great position to get a lot down last weekend, but ended up getting sick. It’s been a doozy of a cold with a terrible stuffy nose and cough, and I’ve been pretty much wiped out. I’m hoping to be doing well enough this weekend to make use of the three day weekend.

Thomas has also had a little cough, but nothing too bad and Erik had one day were he was under the weather.

Thomas has started singing songs! This is particularly exciting since one of the skills he “lost” at about eighteen months was humming. He was doing it and then just stopped. Yesterday he pulled out a bunch of his picture exchange cards and started singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”, “All the Little Ducks”, and “The Itsy-Bitsy Spider.” And the great part is that now he has the vocabulary to actually sing rather than just hum.

Plus he just spontantously told Erik “I love you”. :-)

I started classes last week. Unfortunately, I have been in school long enough to know people who I don’t really want to be in class with again and I have a large share of those people in my final classes. Alas, there is a lot of group work as well. I had a meeting with my fellow thesis writers, and that made me feel a bit better about the process although I really do need to get myself motivated.
