Dan: Yeah, I know that J is always getting 100s in math, and I am always getting 99s, but I really believe I'm better than him at it. He just doesn't feel it like I do.
Dan: Guess what Kate? Jacob's Dad has the clock in his car set ahead ten minutes because he cannot be late.
Me: So? I have the clock in my bedroom set ahead four minutes for the same reason.
Dan: Really? Have you ever thought, "Hey, I'm smart. I can get to school on time?"
Dan has recently become the owner of new spandex pants, for use while running outside in the winter. I have been running in the same size 18 boys thermal track pants that I found at a thrift shop for the last four years, so I find this attention to clothes-to-sweat-in to be quite amusing.
Dan: It's easy to wake up at 6:30 in the morning, especially when you have really sexy pants that you can't wait to put on. Nobody else agrees with me - I don't know why.
Matt has been breaking up his homeschooling routine to take one course at our local Junior High school. In total, it takes two hours of time per week. Today was his last day.
Matt: Wow, it's so nice to be done. I'm so glad I don't have to deal with all that stress anymore.
