Construction Zone

There should be some re-construction going on here at The Edge...most probably today. I'm so excited about a new look and can't wait to see how it turns out. I'll give you all the details after all is said and done.

I'm heading down to Jacksonville with Carla this afternoon. She has a doctor's appointment and I firmly believe you don't need to drive down there alone. It's crazy! I guess so with it being one of the largest cities on the East Coast. If I'm not mistaken, it's like the third largest? Someone please correct if I'm wrong. It's very intimidating to me. I tell everyone that I'll drive in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina during Harley Bike Week without blinking, but I don't like JAX. She and I make a good team, too. I drive and she navigates. It's gotten us to some really good shopping places in the past.

Oh, and please tell me something if you can. Why on earth was I the one sitting at the table last night helping my brilliant 9 year old with math? And division at that??? The Man lost patience (so unlike him) early on and I had to pick up the torch. That kid can multiply in her head scary numbers. She even taught herself how to do it. Her idea of a fun car game during road trips is for you to give her a multiplication problem for her to figure out in her head. The kind of problem that I would need a piece of paper and pen or the calculator on my phone to know the answer. Long division? Her downfall. She was banging her poor head against a brick wall until I told her she would do the problems or be up to midnight. She seemed to finish up quickly after that. Poor thing. Television is her downfall. If it's on? She can't concentrate. I see her having to have quiet spaces to work- college will be hard, won't it?

You go on and enjoy your Friday. I'm on my second cup of coffee and I might even swing a 3rd if I'm feeling froggy.

The page looks wonderful, my love. I am sorry about getting so annoyed with my little one last night. She just seemed to go totally against anything I was trying to tell her.
