September 12 of 12

Where I'd rather be at 6:30 am
alas, it was not to be today...

Nevertheless, I could still be chipper this morning...after coffee at 7:15

After dropping off the kids at school, stopping for a moment to admire the Stone Mountain Yellow Daisies. I guess they are a weed, but such a lovely weed! This is around 8-ish, as I head towards work.

Of course, no morning commute is complete without a 45 minute delay thanks to cheesewagons everywhere. 8:30-9:00 am.

Did a bold and crazy thing and started submitting my work for publication again. Perhaps I'll make a collage of all the kind rejection slips. At least the last one was actually addressed to me by name. Noonish? Who knows...it's finals week so I'm a bit time-afflicted.

This is the view my classroom. Heavy construction is going on, so we are assaulted by noise, earthquakes, and noxious fumes. On a good day. This is at about 5:30 when my last class starts.

By 7:30 we were starved. Somebody broke the rules and pulled out a giant bag of candy. As if I'd enforce it....pass the snickers bites.

The commute home in the rain. Bleh. It took me 45 minutes to make a 20 minute evening trek. This is just after 8 pm.

I got home at 8:30. Dinner was over. Hmmm. I'll remember that.

So I had some make-shift nachos. It was filling. Sort of.

Then I washed the cross country uniforms myself, at about 9. Why? Because I paid a lot of money for those two uniforms, and one of my wiseguys wasn't going to ruin two red uniforms by using bleach. That's why.

Ah, finally my little smushy pillow...maybe a 5 minute nap will refresh me before tackling the foibles of posting pictures on blogger. About 9:30 pm


And finally, although actually middly, since it was in the middle of the day, I took a break and listened to a podcast.
