This is a total "what I'm up to" blog post and not a "see what a hard-working writer I am" blog post.  I'm okay with that, just so you know.  I'm watching United States of Tara with E and I've got one eye on the computer.  I missed John Corbett.  Anyway.

I haven't opened my laptop in two days, which for me is akin to two days without coffee.  It left me feeling a little wonga. I figured it was time to dive back in.  That way when the stuff hits the fan this week I'll be re-plugged.

The Mock Trial trip was a complete success.  It was the kind of trip that leaves me feeling like it was a privilege to attend rather than a burden to work.  The kids did an amazing job all weekend and made it to the final round.  They ended up placing second in the state.  We ended up at Disneyland the same night which made for the longest... day... ever... (though any day ending in Disney is a win) but I high-tailed it back home yesterday and back into the world of dancing teachers and (wait for it) the busiest week ever.

There seems to be a theme here.

This Thursday night we have our annual Staff GQ at school--the teacher dancing group I've been directing for a few months will be performing.  This week is filled with all kinds of finishing-up and tying of loose ends.

It was nice to go to Disneyland but like our trip to Hawaii last year, it left me missing Hank and Ad somethin' fierce.  I got to meet up with a former student who works there, though.  That was ten kinds of awesome.  Good to catch up, good to have a Disney hostess.  I don't think I want to go back to Disneyland without E and the monkeys anytime soon, though.  Too sad.

On a happy note, I keep forgetting that I got accepted to one of my schools already.  Then I remember and it's awesome like my 90's dance skillz.

That's all for tonight, Internet.  I tried to go to bed at 5:30 and E told me that was a little ridiculous.  I think 8:30 might just be in the safe zone.  I'm going to go find out.

  1. Yay for Mock Trial. That is awesome! Gotta love Disneyland. I know soooo many people who were there this weekend. It was Nationals and I had 3 cousing from 3 different states and a friends daughter there. 3 for cheer one for lyrical. I should have went down for a family reunion. :) Have fun at GQ. I love that show and you are an amazing choreographer for the DQ's!
