So yesterday I finished a new cover for the ottoman, and cleaned my kitchen, and worked. I also did some lolling around reading and knitting. I couldn’t quite bring myself to grade papers, but I did do the attendance tracking. I did an hour of Wii Fit, and this morning it has given me a […]

We just got snow, not ice. For this I am very grateful. We may be snowed in, but  we have power and heat and can cook and everything. The weather man is sad. We have this sort of fiendish-looking guy who was so happy and excited yesterday, he could hardly stand it. He was predicting […]

I’m going to do what they did on the news this morning and cheat, by showing you a picture of last year’s ice storm. This is because it is still dark out, so I can’t take pictures of this year yet. You can see more if you go to my xanga for this date last […]

How are you coming with your New Year’s resolutions and goals? I’ve been very faithful about exercising daily, even if it’s low key time with the Wii Fit. I haven’t been faithful about eating right. I’ve been moderately good about working normal hours and doing other stuff sometimes. One thing I wanted was to return […]

What a day! Well, you know I like lots of action during a day. it would be boring to write about, or for you to read, but it was interesting to live. My sister and I had a Facebook chat about code. See, all this time I thought she was mostly a statistician, and really […]

My husband is concerned about the Grammies. Michael Jackson, he explained, can’t be reincarnated because he’s being kept in the TV. If he didn’t have that much TV presence, he could go ahead and be born somewhere else and move on with his existence. My husband says things like this sometimes. He usually doesn’t begin […]

I’m just back from my early class. I’m enjoying both my face-to-face classes, and I now have the first mountain of papers to grade. The arts center assigns groups of three lessons. Then you turn in your lessons and they assign some more. Today, I got a response to the last group of lessons saying […]

Yesterday I worked instead of cleaning my living room. Actually, there was plenty of time during which I could have cleaned my living room. #1 son did the grocery shopping so I could get my arts center stuff done and papers graded. I worked for a mere eight hours, and then went and had lunch […]

I’m talking about business today. My feelings won’t be hurt if you don’t stay and read. The thing is, my possibility tree is getting branchy again. Originally, in spring of 2008, my possibility tree had three branches: get a job, work for myself, or fail miserably and starve in a gutter. Without making a decision […]

For many years now, I’ve done the Holiday Grand Plan that gets you ready for Christmas without stress. I’ve done it with varying levels of dedication and thoroughness, but it’s always better to do it even a little bit than not to do it. Some years I also do the Spring Cleaning Plan, and I […]
