I'm spending today alone, which is quite a rarity. tutordennis
is in Sac for a few days, and threetimes
is out and about. I've been puttering around the house and yard with the critters and reading Christopher Moore's Lamb
(trying to get in some more pleasure reading before school starts). It's my last week of freedom! I'm looking forward to setting up my classroom starting next week, and meeting the new TFA
Corps Members teaching at our site. I'll also be taking an evening Linguistics class at NHU
(I hope it's at least reasonably academic, and not one of those applied "teacher education" courses), so I'll be in class until 9:30P on TR. This does not bode well for my leisure time. This Saturday I'm going to a seminar on "Disciplining with Love and Logic," which should no doubt be titled "Asserting Your Absolute Authority over Children without Feeling Guilty." Ick.
When Dennis and I went shopping recently, we parked by the Jamba Juice (which is in the same strip mall-type lot as Albertson's, where we were shopping). So we were heading back to the car with about six bags of groceries and a case of bottled water, when, about 20 feet from the car, the cart's wheels locked up. Apparently, the store has some sort of anti-theft device on their carts. Fine. But we were still in the same parking lot! So, thanks to the anti-helpful device, we had to go back and forth lugging the bags and the case of water across the just-far-enough-to-be-annoying distance to the car. If I were a grumbly sort of person, I'd be grumbling.
Okay, the cats are looking expectant, so I will feed them and then go out to feed myself. Heavenly Salad from Vegetarian House is calling to me! Yummy food, and
cult propaganda. What more could one ask?
Disturbing link of the day: Empower yourself!
I haven't been sleeping at night, as you can tell by my participation in the following meme:( Kissing Survey )
