First I would like to apologize for the fact that our template might have looked a little screwed up. And if you have checked our blog multiple times today I am sure you saw something different everytime you checked. I thought I had figured out this really cool trick, but it turns out I didn't. Ok, I did, but for those of you still stuck in the stone age with Internet Explorer it didn't work. It looked fantastic on my computer! You all should have stopped by to see it!
But alas... it was not to be. I couldn't stand the thought of you guys looking at half-assed work. So I am back to a relatively plain layout. Don't get me wrong, the graphics are all Elle, but I can't figure out how to change some colors that I don't like and I am at the point where I don't really care.
So I suppose this being the end of the week you are looking for the weekly update.
Let's say that this weekly update is brought to you by Prozac. Lord help me I need some. (I really did have something more clever, but since my mom reads this blog I thought better of extreme profanity)
There really isn't any big news to share. All the paperwork the MoE needed for reaccreditation has been completed and we are just waiting for them to sign the document. Sounds fantastic right? Oh I will be the first to tell you that this is definitely good news, but... Isn't there always a but?
It seems that mother nature now wants to intervene in the process. If it isn't one thing it is another. Apparently Moscow, and most of Russia, has been hit with an extremely deep freeze. To conserve power the Russians are closing certain buildings and suggesting that residents stay home. So that means no one is working!!!!!! The MoE is apparently closed for the rest of the week.
I am not sure when they are supposed to reopen or when this cold front is supposed to move on through, but this is putting a big kink in my life.
I refer back to an earlier post in which I mentioned starting an ink drive
. I am thinking we need to go back to this plan. In the original post it was to get ink for the ever elusive "approved" stamp. I am now thinking that we need to invent some kind of "never-freeze" pen ink. I believe this ink must also come from some remote South American village thus having to travel by burro.
I think I have officially crossed over the crazy threshold.
