Today is a significant day in the Jenkins household for a couple of reasons. The first is due to the fact that my daughter, Courtney, has managed to make her way through the trials and tribulations of the public education system in Michigan to her very last class this morning. Final grades aren’t in yet, but all indications are that she will graduate and be unleashed upon an unsuspecting world in short order. She was so excited that she called me from her school at 9:20 this morning to let me know she was officially done. To say that getting to this point was a bumpy road is probably an understatement as she has a tendency to be like her father was when I was in school, but just as I managed to make my way to the finish line so has she and I am very proud of her.
The other reason today is significant is because it’s my Dad’s birthday today. He’s clocking in at a feisty 67 today and doing pretty well considering some of the health issues he’s had to deal with over the past couple of years. Be sure to drop by his blog and wish him a happy birthday.
The next couple of weekends will be busy ones as we’ll be apartment hunting and going to see Dad this weekend and then the next weekend is when Courtney’s graduation ceremony takes place and I have a LAN party the day before. After that, Court’s open house and then, hopefully, we’ll be moving into new digs. I’m getting worn out just thinking about it.
