cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Quick Update (posted by Lani)

And that's all it is, ya'll, I'm sorry but I don't have time or energy for anything else. I started my training on Monday with a class of 44 and a nice grueling 10 hour day plus the news that Saturday had been added to our training schedule, so we'll be doing 6-day weeks; by Tuesday afternoon we were down to 36, as of this morning we have 35 class members. I seriously did not expect it to be this difficult. To give you an idea, tonight's homework is reading 133 pages in the FAA crewmember manual and doing a 5 page worksheet, with a test on the material in the morning. Intense? Yes.

So, this week has been nothing but training, and that's just how it'll be for the month of October ... I'll try to blog in more detail on Sundays, but during the week it's pretty much class until 6 or 7pm, then study until I fall over from exhaustion, rinse and repeat. I haven't even picked up a hook or a pair of needles since Sunday night.

Ya'll wish me luck. It may not sound like much fun and truly it isn't, but ... I want this.

Oh and I'm going to be domiciled in Philadelphia initially. More on exactly what that means on Sunday.

That sounds like a tough schedule, but you're my uber-smart sis so I know you can do it!

Is the attrition through them quitting, or are they being asked to leave?

How many men/women in your class?

And many other questions that you don't have to answer. Until Sunday, when I expect to hear all the dirt.

Until then, hang in there!
