I had gotten into this great rhythm of posting in the middle of the day, or at least writing in the middle of the day so I could go to bed earlier.
That has kind of gone out the window the last few days, and I am starting to notice it just a little bit.
However, tomorrow is Friday, so there is only one more day to stagger through before the pace lightens up. To top off the about three billion things I have on my to-do list (so many that I am not the least bit concerned about the 30+ kids that are visiting our derelict toilet-free house next week), I got a call from the mayor. I hang with all the right people you know, so the mayor's office called me up this morning and wanted me to get back to them urgently. I duly did so, and onto my rather overfilled plate fell a translation, that he needed done yesterday. WoooT!
The fun thing was that, with the exception of a few phrases, I could do it all MYSELF!!! (I will admit right here that it was INTO English and out of Catalan. It'll be quite a while before I can do it the other way).
Since my day has been insanely busy, Canada busy and the end is in site, that would be the end of my brain functioning, I am going to post this really cool activity we had to do back in grade 5 or 6. Here's how it worked. I still remember it cause I enjoyed it so much.
Gonna have to do it again I'm thinking.
The task is to express all of the numbers from 1 - 100 using only the number 4 and the basic math symbols, +, -, x, divide (which I can't find on the machine), plus square roots, squaring and fractions.
I'll have to scan in or photograph my answers.
Who's gonna play?
