Where has the time gone…
Can you believe it… by the time you read this there will be less than three weeks till Christmas. I have to report that in spite of an insane schedule lately, I have managed to do most of my Christmas shopping. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for Ebenezer… I mean Jeanine. She is still procrastinating.
In her defense, she too has been very busy with her mother’s illness and helping Allison with Kathryn and her siblings. On top of that I gave her my cold and she was down for the count all weekend. In fact neither of us ventured from the couch for most of the weekend. I did manage to help Jamie finishing winterizing and covering up our boats Sunday afternoon. Actually, I did more watching than helping but thanks to our friend Joe Wyne pitching in, we managed to get the job done. And… from the way the weatherman is talking… just in the nick of time. Apparently we are in for a true beginning of winter. Just when I was getting use to these warm days too. I still have a bunch of unfinished projects around the house. I can only hope that I will be able to work a few more in.

The Board of Ed saga…
I finally received a call from Superintendent of Schools David Dilly last Friday, just 2 weeks after I called to talk to him. We had a very frank and open conversation about the Open Meetings violation that I have taken issue with as well as the lack of response. The illegal action taken in the October 6 meeting; as well as the changing of minutes in November to create a separate meeting, are yet to be resolved. However, the Superintendent has pledged to be more responsive in the future. I hope that will occur. I don’t intend to relinquish my responsibility of being a watch dog over those we elected to represent us… I’m the first to say that it is often a frustrating job, but I do take it seriously.

On the lighter side…
I appreciate all the well wishes and kind comments regarding our newest granddaughter. I must say she and Mommy are doing well. It won’t be too long before she will be out meeting the world. In the mean time I guess Nana and Popie will just have to work a little hard in the spoiling department.
