Checkin' out my new stuff

So I downloaded Windows Live Writer and I'm going to  try it out on my blog.  I'm not really sure what it does, exactly, but we'll learn together.

how fun is this?  OOOH, I always wanted to do that!!! 

This is fun!  Cool fonts too!

OK, enough of that.  Yesterday the kids had conferences at school.  It was nice to sit down and chat with their teachers for a few minutes.  They are all doing amazingly well.  I'm very proud of them.  I was totally impressed with Ann-Elise though.  When I get her paper back, I'll post if for you.  She is unbelievable in math and reading/writing.  Her teacher was almost speechless trying to explain to me how rare it is to have a first grader who can grasp so many concepts in so many areas on such a high level.  Go Leise!!!

As we were leaving the school, I passed someone that I met last year as Conner was playing ball.  Not a good friend, but someone I had visited with.  I wasn't sure it was her at first, as it had been so long.  When I realized it was her, we were walking down the hall at the same time so I looked over at her and said "Hi, how are you doing?"  Her response was a very rude "Fine".  Umm, ok.  Mike is on the community sports program board and apparently the board made a decision that she didn't like.  And now she's being rude to me.  So, we're acting like we're back in High School again?  I was shocked that an adult would take something that an organization that my HUSBAND was in (and I have NO control over) and take her anger out on me.  A totally innocent bystander.  Whatever!  Get a life!

Oh, and I totally ticked my sister off yesterday.  She is always talking about this fun message board that she's on.  Of course, it's a "hobby specific" board.  I'm not going to give out much info, because I don't want people checking it out and getting her all mad at me!  Anyway, she's always talking about it and even thought it's not a "hobby" that I have, I wanted to check it out to see what it was about.  Apparently you have to sign up to be able to access the forums.  And low and behold, when you sign up, your user name is posted at the side of the MAIN WEBSITE for EVERYONE to see.  So, of course she saw that I was on.  Had I known that I'd be the "Newest member" I would have come up with a different name!!!  Anyway, she saw and flipped out (not totally, but she was a little shocked).  Called me up and told me I couldn't be on "HER" website.  Hee Hee.  I wasn't really gonna post anything, I just wanted to check it out.  But I guess now I've been banned!  Kind of funny though!

Ok, first of all, WHOO-HOO, way to go Leise girl!

Now... Yeah, shocked would be a good word to describe it! Had the other "info" I found out yesterday not happened, you being on there probably wouldn't have been that big of a deal. I actually may like having you on, I can use you as my spy! LOL

You just have to remember what you read on there, stays on there!!! :)

Isn't is fun to go to the school and find out about how well our kids are doing. Good for Leise! It is fun for me to see how my kids act around their teachers. They are so shy, and excited at the same time. They love to have us be a part, it's cute!
have a great day- and seeing that your sister forgives you, will make it that much better!
