Well that was more excitement than I needed. Apparently a police officer was shot around 3am this morning at a gas station on the fringe of my daycare provider's neighborhood. The guy got away, but was contained in her neighborhood, and the cops waited until daylight to search for him. So every street to her house is blocked off and there are police cars, swat team people, tracking dogs, etc. everywhere. I did finally manage to find a way to her house to drop Devon off, with some trepidation about doing so. After all, there is an armed fugitive running amok in the neighborhood. But the daycare provider was standing at her door, waiting to let me in, and told me she's keeping all the doors and windows locked, a phone in hand, and watching for anything unusual, ready to call the police at the slightest oddity. So I've left my poor baby in the midst of a war zone. *nervous*

Hawaii was on for about two days, and now it's off again. *sigh* I have to say I'm not really surprised. Hubby's ever so good at getting my hopes up about something, then "thinking better" of it and telling me it's a no-go. In any event, in this case it's for a good reason. We've decided to have another baby. I'm gonna wait until the fall to start trying, for purely selfish reasons -- the "annual" extended Galliver family ski trip, which has not taken place in five years, is planned for around the holidays. I want to be able to ski, darn it. So I'm hoping to only be a month or two along by December, so I can enjoy the trip too. But this all means that we've not got any extra money to spend celebrating our anniversary with a U2 concert in Hawaii. *sigh* On the bright side, by the time they tour again my babies should be old enough that I can go to more far-flung shows, and hopefully by then Mark will have his practice established so that we actually have a bit of extra money to play with.

He's talking 'bout going back to school, though. I'm not pleased. I mean, I'm all for getting an education, even if it's not a marketable degree. But he wants to get a very expensive degree in military history, which is completely unmarketable, and he wants to do it this year. Hello.... we have no money right now as it is. How are we to pay $38,000 for an unusable degree???? What happened to him getting his law firm well established so that we can have a reasonably comfortable lifestyle, or at least so that we can start saving money instead of dipping into our tiny pool of savings every month? Grrrrr....

    I just found this photo while doing a bit of internet surfing at lunch, and I'd not seen it before, so I thought maybe my flist Larry girls might…
