Bookend, the second.

Here's a nice little post to round out a two-part collection of whining and/or venting. How better to end yesterday's Debbie Downer of a day than with Henry, barfing twice into a bowl from my lap? Poor Buddha. He kept complaining all through dinner that his head was hurting, but we forced the usual hour-long routine where he sits and pushes his food around until it's gone. He finished then he got up, snuggled into my lap, and gave all that dinner back. Of course the toilet was randomly clogged at that exact moment too, you know? Yesterday was the gift that kept on giving.

So I'm home again today, though the myriad problems that plagued me at work yesterday await my return. Now they're just partying unsupervised, making the "I'll get to it when I get back" pile even larger. We're in full to-do list augmentation mode at this point. I'm going to try to get a handle on things today before the weekend hits, otherwise it's three days of fun and then next week will just look like a repeat of the last two days. I made a list. I'll let you know how it goes.

There's a lot of grading to be done this weekend and another draft of the WASC report (I'm keeping my snide comments mostly to myself on that one) plus I needed to run 3 miles yesterday and I didn't do it. That needs to happen today so tomorrow's 8 mile run can happen. Oh, and how is that even possible? E is working all day today and tomorrow and basically checks in to Hotel P once a night to eat dinner and sleep and then leave again. I will need to do some creative babysitter arranging. You know. The free kind, since paycheck numero uno hasn't dropped yet.

Henry appears fine but for the second time this week I find myself watching him because I'm afraid of the germs he'll give to whoever was supposed to watch him. Grr. The cherry on top? I think I'm getting a cold. GOD BLESS THIS AMAZING WEEK.


  1. wow..that 11 year old girl who was trapped under the rubble..did you see that...yep..they cut her free...but she died later today...hope you get over that cold!!

  2. Hey Anonymous, how 'bout you and your sandy vagina go bother someone else's blog?

  3. I would like to apologize for my inappropriate comment. Made the the mistake of reading different blogs where everyone seemed to be complaining about one thing or another while watching the Haiti coverage on CNN. Write on!

  4. E –– nice sandy vagina retort. I'd like to borrow you in the event that someone leaves poorly constructed anonymous digs on my blog.
