I confess…I feel surprisingly zen about all the stuff that we’ve gone through lately. Like, I’m actually in a GOOD mood today.
I confess… I was bad about commenting on blogs this week and it sort of proved that you have to give comments to get comments (for the most part, anyway.)
I confess… I have ten papers to grade and I just cannot get started.
I confess… this heat is seriously oppressive. I thought I was handling it alright but I am constantly irritated by it, moreso than I can ever recall. Argh.
I confess… I have been nostalgic for an easier time; even just one year ago. My brain keeps flickering through images of us walking the dogs and pulling the kids in the wagon and feeling so much less burdened than now. Just thinking about these images is making me both immensely sad and then grateful and overwhelmed with happy emotions. It’s been crazy.
I confess… that some of the odd feelings I attribute to the fact that in 45 days, Elliot starts Kindergarten and I know how crazy everything will be. We’ll have a brand new morning routine and new teachers, new homework, and all that comfortableness we knew before will be blown to bits. I just have to repeat to myself, “change is good.” Maybe I’ll believe it.
I confess… If I weren’t already overwhelmed with things, I’d like to start some kind of artistic project. Ash wants a couple shadow boxes of his various races and one for Iggy. But I can’t seem to find any I really like. Always something, right?
I confess… I’m about to go in for an hour of grading and hope to come out on the other side unscathed. I really like this app that my friend Catherine mentioned, TeuxDeux; it’s super helpful!
Okey dokey pokey, that’s all I have. How about you?
