I Got Skillz

I did math today y'all. I mean real math.

Well...no...it was more like 5th grade math, but still a ginormous accomplishment in my book.

I'm swimming in Prom preparations, and today I had to figure out how many rolls of this fabric stuff to order. In order to figure that out I had to do all these room measurement calculations, yada, yada, yada. It took me a whole class period at school today, but I did it! Real math! Woo Hoo! When I got home this afternoon I had Kirk figure it up for me to check my rockin' skills, and I was totally right! So what if it only took him 2 minutes....whatever.

If you know me....you are proud of me! *wink*

(Apologies to all my smart friends....please don't fire me as one of your peeps.)

As the one person who is worse in math than you...I'm a little jealous of your accomplishment! However, as your big sis, I'm so proud! :)

Oooh, I LOVE math. And that's said truthfully! Let's just hope that both you AND Kirk both have mad skilz because it would be really embarassing if you ran a roll short!

I'm taking a math refresher course helping my 3rd graders with their homework. If one train leaves at 7:14 traveling 60 miles per hour and another train leaves at 7:45 traveling..... AARGH!!!

I didn't get it right the first time (30 years ago)

Math and I are not friends. We aren't even on speaking terms most days.

So I stand in awe of your figuring. :o)

I know how you feel. I very much don't do math so when I do somewhat of a challenge, I'm ecstatic! hehe
