Tomorrow I start work on another project that will pay me $1K over the semester -- w00t! I'm also going to set up my thesis proposal appointment with one of the professors here so I can finalize what I want to do with that.

JP thinks he needs glasses, so I have to make an appointment with the eye doctor for him ASAP. Yes, the ex is supposed to pay half of these things, but I'd have better luck getting blood from a stone. Hopefully JP doesn't need glasses, or we can get him inexpensive ones. Too bad this didn't come up last year, when I could have gotten them for $30 with my former insurance.

My stats class looks manageable, which is a relief. Only problem is that the dept. is way overfilling classes: we have a "theoretical cap" on grad classes at 15, but every class I've had, save one, has been about 28-30 people. For undergrad, that's cool, but there is a lot less discussion than I initially expected. The semester as a whole won't be too bad: 2 papers, one class with no tests at all, and everything for stats is take-home. Whee!

Interestingly enough (or not), "statistics" is one of those words I have trouble saying! So it always ended up "stats" when I was in the class.

I'm glad everything is looking so good for you, and I hope JP doesn't need glasses.

BTW, I never thanked you for the photo. What handsome family you guys make!

Hee hee! Thanks, I thought the picture came out nicely -- G's friend in Toronto took it last fall.

Jp goes in on Thursday afternoon -- we'll see how he does!
