Captain Obvious just woke up and noticed that there's a fire in the woodstove. He's been asleep on the couch and the fire's been going for over a half an hour
(it's around 4:30)already....must....leap...and...growl...at...funny...noise...and...light...in....the.......box.....ohhh, never mind....I'll go sleep on this chair over there...zzz.
WIsh I could sleep better. Should be correcting papers. Reading the news instead. Sleeping for shorter times, deep, hard sleep with strange, disturbing dreams. Don't remember the ones from last night.
Yesterday was tough at school. Before school wasn't. After was fun. Julie came to teach the "ankle-biters" (her words) with me. Then it was (what did she say?)-"sitr-fries"--nope, that wasn't it....I forget. Not enough sleep. It was fun anyway. Shetook the last class on herown. I was glad for that. It was a long day. Cedar is back at dogcare. That's a good thing.
Just got another "update" from the adoption agency. Article in there was about how hard it was for a couple to wait 23 MONTHS for their referral. 23 months...are they joking...try four years and counting....They(2 parent family) picked up their infant daughter from China on CHristmas Day of this year....they already have 2 bio kids.....
Addendum at 6 am-it's amazing how a workout at home can set things aright in the feelings dept. God bless those endorphins, the fact that you don;t have to get trussed up to sweat, AND superglue for those winter cracks on winter hands that hurt like the dickens until you superglue 'em. Have a great day. Mine's off to one of those...and i'm going to one of the box stores tonight to check out a kitchen cabinet. I must remember to measure.

    i laughed a little too at the 3 classes when she told me about them: ankle biters, rugrats, and independent scrum.

    i liked that last one the best.

    love, col

    Yup you're correct!
    They all behaved really well when I told them Erin slugged me and gave me the scar/swelling on my eye!
