thoughtful

Oma: hmm

I think Marti's right. We all probably do need a night out.

Adam, what do you think?

Maybe we could pay Bal to babysit Kirley and the rest of the kids...

happy

Oma: proud

The recruits returned home Friday night. On Saturday, all the families were supposed to receive word of their child/spouse/etc.'s completion of the training program, or failure - and in the case of the first, an invitation to his/her commencement ceremony. I have to say, this is the first time I've been glad to get the message in our eggs.

So on Saturday morning, 11 a.m., Bal graduated at the top of his class. He chose the code name Miers. Agent Miers. Latvian for peace. Etobi Parke was his sponsor. I have to laugh at Hedgepeth's choices sometimes - terribly appropriate. I think he'll be good for Bal. I cried a little when they announced he was first in his class. Adam "had something in his eye."

About six of his instructors came up to speak with Adam and I after the ceremony. Comments ranged from "attitude problem" to "blatant refusal to follow instructions" all the way to "reckless show-off," and inevitably ended in "the best agent we've produced in years."

It's so good to have him home.

worried

Oma: concerned

The recruits are entering their fifth week of training now, according to schedule. Bal's letters are getting shorter. I'm beginning to wonder if the training program is too difficult. This is the first time they've tried it... Yes, I'm worried, because They should be partnering up and going out on the wilderness survival exercise before the week's over.

Adam's worried too

I hope he's okay

Dievs.

Not pleasant.

sad

Oma: down

Bal's a very mature and resourceful young man. Charlie and Carl and Louis are excellent at what they do, and we approved all the specialists who are going to be coming into the recruit process, and Adam and I both had a hand in suggesting reforms to the process. He's going to be absolutely fine.

.Collapse )



Isn't Lupercalia coming up? I'd better go talk to Elizabeth...

My husband and son are ogling Gene Kelly. o.O

February 2nd, 2006 (08:58 pm)
okay

Oma: okay
Dziesma: Gene Kelly is singing in our living room.

Adam's birthday: quiet but happy. I think he enjoyed it. The kids did a really lovely scrapbook for him (Miah's artwork is getting very good - he's got some real talent). I tried to reassure him he's as handsome as ever, which of course he knows, because he's arrogant sometimes (but I suppose if I looked like him I would be too, heh).

Tonight he and Bal are having a Gene Kelly marathon. I'm joining them in a bit, but I'm trying to get through all the laundry first. Bal usually does his own, but I don't mind. It's the least I can do, or something, before he goes away. .Collapse )

Anyway. That's that. I know Miah's going to miss him more than any of us, I think. The two of them have been really close lately, particularly after their little stunt at New Year's. But he'll be back soon. And I'm pleased with the new training program, so I'll be anxious to get his letters about what's going on there. (I'm dying to know how it all goes, honestly. Not just for him. For my own curiosity, too.)

And I think there's something new going on with the Fitz, or something's going to happen soon, but I haven't had any official word, so. We'll see.

September 1994, London

relieved

Oma: relieved

*standing on the streets of London, wearing a white Oxford button-up stained with blood and soot and torn jeans, and no shoes (as they were lost in the struggle)*

*trying to look inconspicuous standing outside a tourist shop, half-behind a postcard stand*

I think we got them all.

*looks at herself and Adam* ...we need to check into a hotel somewhere to clean up. Ew.

Decorating.

November 25th, 2005 (03:30 pm)
busy

Oma: busy
Dziesma: some boyband's Christmas album, coming from upstairs

It's 3:30 and I'm exhausted. The kids, on the other hand...

We celebrated Thanksgiving, even though it's not a particularly big thing in our family - it's more for the kids than either of us. I never celebrated it growing up. We did while we lived in New York, then sort of dropped it when we went back to Europe. But Christmas is definitely a huge thing, and we started decorating today. Haven't put the tree up yet, but nearly everything else. Kirley watched Kenny while I helped the twins put up a few small things around the house. (Bal and Miah were off on their own, cooking up some plan. I can only imagine what decorations those two would come up with...)

Actually, Kirley and Kenny really seem to be bonding. I'm sort of concerned. Except for the part where I really appreciate having another person to keep him occupied. And it's good to have someone looking after Kenny, too. Ha ha.

Cup of coffee and chasing after the twins again. They're getting along today, thankfully.

tired

Oma: tired
Dziesma: Kirley and Mr. Whiskers are listening to Bal's music...?

Well, it's all finally over. Broke the previous record of longest most roundabout, drawn-out session by four days.

The things we gained.Collapse )

The things we lost.Collapse )

The thing still in debate.Collapse )

Our family.Collapse )

Let's just get us through this month and the next, til the holidays, and take a break.

I should find Lys today, and just say hello. I've been meaning to catch up with her anyway, but I've been wondering how Aidan was after the last moon. And look in on Noel again as well, although he seems to be doing fine. And Marti and Spence...

I feel like I'm everyone's mother. I just check up on everybody, tell them to wrap up, don't go out with wet hair, don't go dispensing justice on a weak ankle...



It's time to go back to HQ as well. Enough time off. We've made our point. I'm sure Hedgepeth knows by now, anyway.

Fitzhugh's going to get in touch with Marti and Spence again on Monday. I'll have to talk to Marti, to see how it goes.

We've got to get Dagnija down to see Ofélia, too - that needs to happen soon. The further we can have her in D.E.M.O.N. by the time the meeting hits, the better. I'm grasping at straws, I know, but I don't know what else to do...
