Happy Henry

On Thursdays, Henry has classes at his charter school from 9-3:30. I drop him off in the morning (it’s a 45-minute drive) and his dad picks him up in the afternoon, then they hang out for a while together, and then his dad drops him off here in the early evening. When he got home, Henry was just bubbling over with happiness while telling me about his day. In science class, they measured the volume, mass, and density of oranges and discovered that they float when unpeeled and sink when peeled. In art they worked on a secret Mothers’ Day project, and in English they started working on a class newspaper. Henry gets to interview his art teacher next week, and he’s all excited about that. Then, he helped with the K-2 art class, and then did a lot of improve in the Advanced Acting class. Sounds like he had a really fabulous day!

I didn’t sleep at all last night so I felt pretty crummy all day. After getting the house in order, I discovered a site where you can watch TV shows and movies online. I tried Charlie Bartlett, which wasn’t very good (I really can’t imagine why it gets such high ratings on imdb), but then I switched to Curb Your Enthusiasm and finished up Season Six while knitting a piece of lace that I hope to enter into the fair, if I get it done in time.

Now I’ve got dinner cooking and am listening to the new LibriVox Community Podcast! It’s a good one!

    Sorry for the interuption. I found LibriVox this week, and found the link to you as moderator for a discussion group for comments on the service.

    I have been downloading the zip files for Aesop’s Fables by complete volume. The Zip file for Vol 10 does not work (Zip file of the entire volume (15.9MB)). Maybe you can pass this informationon to the appropriate area for repair. Thank you,

    Hi Wayne,
    The site which hosts our files (for free!) has been having some stability issues lately. Downloads are sometimes corrupt or incomplete. If the zip won’t download properly, or won’t unzip, please keep trying. Thanks! :)

    Whoa – Thanks for the watchtvsitcoms link! Several of our friends are seriously into Lost, and it’s nice to know that I have the option of catching up on the show without having to go out and find the DVDs!
