What I call life has been slightly overwhelming lately. Nothing bad, just a little on the crazy side in the busy department.
I helped with my favorite five-year-old’s birthday party.
Fifth grade designed reading t-shirts, which I then had to produce (print and iron on decals). Click to enlarge.
There was the sick day (cold / sinus / throat ick). At least I had my own furry hot water bottle.
The PTO put on their annual haunted house.
Also, the usual detritus of modern life: vet visit, meeting with retirement planner, baby shower, women’s group meeting, CPR training, and parent / teacher conference day.
To conclude: as a first grader, in line at the checkout desk, said àpropos of nothing, “Why aren’t there cinnamon rolls around here?”
A cup of Earl Grey, a warm cat on my lap, a handful of knitting, and the BBC’s Open Book program. Kindergarteners? What kindergarteners?
What on earth makes dental hygienists think you want to try to carry on a conversation while they are poking around in your mouth with sharp objects?
As a friend just posted on Facebook: I need one more day in my weekend.
It will warm up soon, I could make progress on my to-do list, I should start eating better, I’m going to start exercising more, it’s almost spring break . . .
We have a new sign in our bus loading zone.
Please note how the pictogram carefully includes a school bus.
70℉ / 21℃ in December this far north of the Mason Dixon Line is a little hard to wrap one’s mind around. Not that I’m complaining about the extremely pleasant day. It beats the -52℉ / -47℃ I saw for the Yukon today. Keep that jet stream to the north, please.
That would be my brain lately.
Today is the kind of day where one wears the wrong thing to work, puts the peanut butter in the refrigerator, and forgets recess duty. As well as misidentifying parent volunteers. I think I must go to bed now before I do any more damage.
“I want to return this book. Where do I put it?”
Usually asked while standing right where I took this picture.
ABC Family has apparently decided its 25 Days of Christmas isn’t enough, so it’s started showing Christmas movies today as a “Countdown to the 25 Days of Christmas.”
Please get a grip, people.
It’s NOVEMBER 18th!
