I know I’m late getting to this. I was gone most the day and am just sitting down to my computer for the first time today. My brain is overflowing with information (not smarts, as you might have assumed) and this may not make any sense, so, y’know, look out.
Outside my window... it’s a beautiful, sunny, blue sky kind of day. Well, it was. It’s dark now. A leetle scary, even. I think the street light is out.
I am thinking... that our blue sky days are going to be gone soon. The forecast for the rest of the week goes down, down, downhill. I don’t mind the cooler temperatures, but I will miss the sunbeams.
I am thankful for... good friends and school peeps. I am blessed beyond measure.
I am creating... too many things right now. There’s a ton of school stuff on the horizon: work things, home projects, plans with friends… too much. Must focus.
Thankfully, I got one of my huge projects done this past weekend; I finally finished and published the new web site for the PTO. I’d link to it to show it off, but then you’d know where my kids go to school and you would go there and take them and that would make me sad.
I am going... crazy. Pretty sure. Big surprise, eh?
I am reading... the new book by Sara Gruen, “Ape House.” I haven’t started it yet, actually. The fact that it’s about monkeys does not exactly appeal to me, but I’ve enjoyed Gruen’s other books so I’m giving this one a try. While I’m on the subject, her last book, Water for Elephants, was fascinating and if you haven’t read it, you should.
I am hoping... that our sweet puppy Oliver is housebroken. It’s looking that way. Cross your fingers for us, please.
I am hearing... way too much noise coming out of Katie’s and Jack’s bedrooms, considering the time. I don’t think reading is supposed to be that noisy.
Around the house... we’re getting back into the school routine. It takes some time, all the setting of alarms and sharing of bathrooms and eating of breakfasts and completing of homework and signing of questionably timed reading logs. One of the big changes this year is that there’s no bus for our neighborhood anymore; right now Tina and I are sharing carpool duties, and it seems to be going well so far. There are an awful lot of cars in the parent pick-up line now, though.
One of my favorite things... is getting a nap. I got one today. Bliss.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Some work, some school, some football. Going to Salem on Saturday to see the Loveliest Lassens for Trevor’s birthday pool party in the rain. Oh, and I’m planning to turn 42 this weekend.
Here is a picture for thought I’m sharing... that Fancy Lori™ sent me forever ago, and I keep forgetting to post it.
