Anyway ...

I can't believe that I was that tired from just picking up The Girls and taking them up to Dojo, but we haven't done that in a couple of weeks, so maybe that was it.

The big news is that the Degerberg Acadamy of Martial Arts (where they kids have been going for six years or so now) just won the first annual "Black Belt Industry Award" (sponsored by Black Belt magazine) for Best Overall School! Degerberg has regularly been in or atop the "top 5" schools in the country (from some other listing, not sure what), but this was a national/international award program with voting and stuff, so it was exciting having the school get this recognition!

Since we'd been missing so many classes, neither of The Girls got promoted this time, but it was good to get them back up there ... I had the feeling that had #1 gotten in her "job list" this month (we totally screwed that up) she would have gotten her Purple Belt, but I guess that's going to have to wait to next month.

We had dinner up at Garcia's, which is always great ... as I've noted before, they have HUGE burritos for like $4 ... we typically get The Girls a Quesadilla appetizer to split and I get a Burrito Al Pastor which they share a bit of (I can typically just make it through about 2/3-3/4 of one of the burritos, so forking over some of the stuffing to The Girls works out fine).
