Thought I'd post a quick note before heading off to bed (I'm pretending that it's still night and not morning)!
Mom and I had a wonderful little visit. I forget how nice it is to complete a sentance with out little ones around.
This afternoon I went to The Incredables with my co-workers (all animation mjors). Fab movie! One of the girls and I went to the Disney store afterwards and were very tempted to get T-Shirts and interative Edna dolls (you gotta see it to believe it).
I then headed back to school to work on some projects until closing time at 11:45. Now it's off for some sleep before getting up and working on a couple of shortpapers in the morning. By the end of the term the mear word "microfiber" may have me twitching!

I'm sending Robbie and Isabell off to Eugene tomorrow on the train. While it will be a chance for me to get ahead on my homework and finals projects, it will be a fun adventure for them as well!
My birthday came and went, and I had a wonderful time catching up with old friends. Kai looks ready to pop, and the news of the evening was that Kate will be following suit!
We helped Raven and Cheikh celebrate the end of Ramadan, and have decided to put together a monthly potluck with them and some other friends.
Mom just called, and she'll be coming up tomorrow night so we can make a trip to Daisy Kingdom. It will be a fun to take a leasurly feildtrip.

It was wonderful to see everyone this weekend! Somehow the next best birthday gift, since the earlier request didn't come through, was just hanging out with my family!
We're all back in our regular routine here. Robbie and Isa are looking forward to a slightly shorter week due to the holiday. I may put them to work baking for this weekends Church Bizaar.
I'm plugging away at school, and even pulled a compliment from my hard core perfectionist drapping instructor! We'll see if I can keep it up!

I haven't chimmed in this week on elections and and various events following. Most people I know are still walking around in a strange jet lagged stupor. I know a few people in Portland, including a columist I read that might be good resources for your political agenda Mom. Let me know if anythings starts to get put together.
I did want to post part of an article from one of the British newspapers I follow:

By Paul Majendie
LONDON, Nov 4 (Reuters) - When Queen Elizabeth opened a conference on global warming in Berlin this week, it shone a spotlight on her own efforts to keep Britain green.

Despite appearances -- the huge royal palaces, lavish state banquets and fleets of limousines -- environmentalists have praised "the Green Queen."
Without fanfare, she has tried to turn her many royal households into models of energy efficiency, they concede.
Already she has converted official cars to run on eco-friendly liquified petroleum gas fuel, switched to energy-saving light bulbs and has sunk a bore hole in Buckingham Palace garden as part of a low-energy heating system.
Now plans are being drawn up to build a hydro-electric plant on the River Thames which could generate enough electricity to power 900-year-old Windsor Castle without burning fossil fuels.
The 78-year-old monarch has always been notoriously thrifty, urging everyone in Buckingham Palace to turn out the lights on leaving a room. But officials say the energy-saving is not just motivated by money.
For royal spin doctors bidding to quell tabloid fever about the dysfunctional family's latest scandal, answering media queries about the queen's energy-saving plans comes as a welcome relief.
With a husband who headed the World Wildlife Fund for 35 years and an environmentally-conscious heir who has even admitted talking to his own vegetables, the family boasts solid green credentials.
"Some of the steps she has taken are extremely welcome," said a spokesman for the environmental pressure group Friends of the Earth which welcomed her opening, however symbolic, of the global warming conference during a state visit to Germany.
"Her participation sends a strong message around the world -- particularly to the United States -- on the need for urgent action on global warming," Neil Verlander told Reuters.

Maybe it's time to move back to my roots.
