Chickens from Savage Chickens
I am SO freakin' grateful today, unlike last week.
1st) For all my unschooling friends who were able to go to Life Is Good... I swear I could feel the energy from the weekend lifting me up all the way over here on the East Coast - and that was before I read any of your blog entries. Now that I have read some, I feel even higher. The Northeast Conference happened, too, and I can't wait to be borne on the updrafts of both of these gatherings. Magic happens when unschoolers get together, and I'm grateful to be part of the community - even if we couldn't physically be at either conference.
2nd) I got PASSES to see Sex & The City -- a DAY before it opens!!! So, that would be... (drumroll)... tomorrow! FREE PASSES. I went to a takeover, which isn't usually my thing - I don't drink and I don't feel comfortable in bars... but they were giving away passes, so I went, just long enough to get them. I tried to talk to a few people, but felt awkward and out of place, so left soon after. I honestly feel like I'm going to see some great old friends when I see the movie. I watched the DVDs the first winter my husband and I separated. Let me tell ya, these DVDs and Chocolate Stuff from the Sweet Potato Queens Book of Love will get you through just about anything. I love these women. And, yeah, I know they're fictional. I love them anyway.
