I've added some new blogs to my Google Reader... here's what I found:

If there are any other good math ed blogs out there, I'd love to know about them!

We had an Elluminate session on Wednesday night for the PLP. I was able to do it from home, which was nice, but I was worried about how the kids (22 months and 4 1/2) would be while I needed them to be quiet and wasn't able to watch. They actually did pretty good noise-wise, but at one point I went into the kitchen and saw this:
She's a big cereal fan and I guess was getting hungry! My husband got home around 5:15 or so, which was good, but he went straight from vacuuming out the fireplace (noisy) to putting some shelves on the walls about 3 feet from where I was sitting (even noisier!).
I'm still struggling trying to keep up with everything. I love Tweetdeck - it summarizes Twitter so nicely for me, but I find myself checking it too often. I think the PLP ning is being affected by that, and my personal/kids blog isn't being updated as often, either. I just need to find a good balance, I guess.
I added a Twitscoop widget over on the side of this blog - thought that was pretty cool.
My precalc classes have their wikis due on Wednesday and have time in class tomorrow to work on them. I haven't checked - hope they look ok!

Query: would it be ok to leave comments on the wiki? (I was just poking around and noted the definition given for the fundamental theorem of algebra probably should mention the zeros are not necessarily distinct.)

You never told me about your blog, Kristen! You need to publicize it, girl! (Look who's talking...I have a blog that no one knows about.)

@blurenga - Thanks for reading! Please do post comments on the wiki - it's a good opportunity for the kids to see that people are actually viewing it. (They don't seem to believe me when I tell them that!)

@CHarrod - I'm not quite the writer that Tricia is. Just random thoughts. :)
