What’s up?

I’ve discovered a new sport: soccer! After a couple of years of watching my kids, I responded to an e-mail by the kids’ soccer league for a moms’ group. I laced up my cleats for the first time yesterday — and loved it!

While I am not 100% clear on the rules — we were given manuals to read — I loved the spurts of running involved and can see how this will help with overall conditioning and races. Plus, it’s fun and it’s brought me closer to the kids. I will let you know how I progress.

In other news: yes, I realize it must have been a PITA for working parents to organize childcare last minute BUT this story about a Washington state school giving the kids the day off to enjoy a “sun day” made me smile.

Finally, my heart goes out to the victims of this limousine fire that occurred nearby on the San Mateo Bridge. Five women, including the bride whose bachelorette party was being celebrated, perished when their limousine caught fire. No one knows what caused the fire.

What else is in the news? What’s up with you?
