Chris and I went to see Bill Cosby at the River Rock Casino last night. It was the third time that I have seen him live and I have enjoyed every show. The first time I went to see him was in 2003 all the way in Salt Lake City, Utah and I did make the trip specifically to see the show. Last night, fifty percent of the audience had white hair and I suspect a significant portion of the rest of the audience only didn’t have white hair because they paid to have it dyed. I don’t even care if most of his fans are twice my age, he is one of my favourite comics.
I have solved the Kindergarten issue for Sacha but it means that right after we get back from Australia we are going to be moving. I have to give two months notice on my current place and with the trip, the timing is best to wait until mid-august. I think the new place is going to be really good. Much much bigger than here, well taken care of and only two blocks from the school Sacha and eventually Alice will attend. The only down side will be that the kids in the co-op here run around like crazy in big packs having lightsaber battles and the new neighbourhood is a much older crowd. There are a few kids though, so hopefully we aren’t too rowdy for everyone.

Oliver is back home after spending the week recovering at Mum’s house. Even though he still has stitches in until next weekend, he seems to be feeling so much better and he no longer stinks. He has a cone of shame, but I have taken it off him when I can watch him and make sure he doesn’t scratch. He had a weird bump on his face that was removed as well, I think his teeth stiches will dissolve on their own. He had 22 teeth removed and has 14 left, they are mainly bottom front ones so you can hardly tell that he is near toothless.
This week has been pretty stressful because this was the week I was supposed to be updated about the waitlist for Sacha at the elementary school that I want him to go to. He is apparently 1 or 2nd on the wait list but the school is full and they really don’t think he will get in for September. Or, if he does get in, we won’t find out until September. So I spend the rest of the week calling all the local elementary school seeing how long their waitlists are, calling new daycares to see if I can find one that has before and after school care as well as a preschool/daycare program so Alice and Sacha can stay together. Right now, the local school that Sacha is signed up to attend has a before and after school care provider but it is all the way down in Crescent Beach and Alice couldn’t attend their during the day. I can barely make it to work in time with one stop in the morning, so two stops across town is not going to work. I’ll get things sorted out before September but it’s pretty stressful until then.
