Memorial day weekend.

Yes, I'm planning on going to the Rett Syndrome conference in Leesburg, VA. I'll be in Friday night at 8ish and then I'll be there all day Saturday and then just for the morning on Sunday. This will be my 3rd conference, I still remember being shell shocked that first conference two years ago - not nearly so much for Edda having Rett Syndrome, more because we were freshly unemployed and OMG, what the heck were we going to do to house and feed ourselves!?! While I'm gone, Jeremy and the kids will man the fort and keep the hearth lit.

Vince lost both front teeth this week. Thank goodness I managed to get a quick haircut in. I did it with office scissors 15 minutes before bedtime. Jeremy took one look at it and I could tell that he didn't like it very much. I'm not a very good hairdresser, but at least it's out of his eyes.

Jeremy is spending the evening watching a live web feed from the House floor. I'm actually listening to congressmen vote on a bill. He's been waiting since 4:30pm for this vote.. Oh no, actually this isn't the vote that Jeremy's interested in, it's the next vote that he's interested in, he'll be up forever, but I'm going to bed.

Sorry, this year, I won't be able to make it. I am very interested in this annual event. It is extremely helping for me to exchange information at one spot, with a lot of people there.

But, I believe, Edda is improving and I am keeping my hope up.

The new haircut goes very well with
his missing front teeth......very cute.

(in the 'lecture' dept-I HOPE you
now realize, that you and Jeremy
together are greater that your
parts and can solve ANY PROBLEM.
Sorry, but i couldn't resist).
