If you can't beat them

As SIS pointed out in her comment - time is relentlessly passing by at it's usual fast and furious pace! (High school she says - I don't even want to hear it!) I want to stomp my feet, or dig in my heels and refuse to go along. BUT, instead I'm going to take the path of least resistance and in honor of tracking back on and going back to school tomorrow. . . I say let the spring break count down begin! Now if you don't have this memorized by now you apparently aren't a B - tracker. 9 weeks, 5 days a week, take away Presidents day, and I think that's a 2 dayer and I can't think of any others . . . . =. . . . 43 days until spring break! I can do that!

Join me again tomorrow for science. "An object in motion tends to stay in motion." Only my research will be titled " An object without her shoes on tends to stay an object without her shoes on." I'm REALLY looking forward to that tomorrow morning which also promises to be icey cold but no real snow. Bummer. night night.

I was saving Edmund for Dodi's SMA Friday, but I always manage to miss them, so for those of you who didn't watch every episode of the various Black Adders - this is the esteemed Dr. House as Edmund. As I remember, Black Adder was HILARIOUS... but you know how when went back to your old elementary school everything was tiny? I think it may be that kind of hilarious.

"Thanks Honey"

So last night my hub came home and proclaimed "Wow, my wonderful wife must have fixed 3 meals in this kitchen today, and yet the only thing out of place is this one hot cocoa mug. She's amazing".

OK, that's not what he said.
It was something along the lines of why nobody can ever clean the chocolate out of their glass.

And yet, my response was, "thanks honey".
Now I'm patting myself on the back for having a good attitude, because the hub just gave me that blank - have you been watching Dr. Phil and Oprah all day - guy look.

3 days until back to school. It has been a great break, and I truly hate to go back this time. But I have tons to get done and I suppose alittle readin' writtin' and 'rithmatic wouldn't hurt them either. The grape vines tells me that the new witch is a good witch, and so I will enter a whole new world at work when I go back.

No Count Down NO NO NO!!!

I do not like the tone this new year is already taking! Whizzing by so fast, Regis has already started, I haven't even gotten out the to do stuff that I generally don't finish, but at least take a stab at... and work/kid school will be starting less than 2 weeks from now. It's not right.

So, I'm officially refusing to start the count down. So there.
