1. Y'all. I don't know what exactly has happened to me, but I feel out of sorts with myself. Quite. I am blaming late night Olympic watching, camping (post coming soon), late nights this week with the Stampin'Up! party and bunco and a poor, okay, downright pitiful diet. (I so bailed on WW this week. I am an ostrich, head buried in denial.) I am also snippy. All I want to do is sit and consume large quantities of chocolate. Hmmm...I'm sensing a pattern here.
2. A. and I were an embarrassing 20 minutes late for her Meet the Teacher this morning. Yes. These late nights are NOT doing me any favors. She will be going to her Pre-K class 5 mornings a week this year, so we better get ourselves together by Monday. I am going to reserve judgment, but her little class is all boys, plus one other girl. I'm trying not to be concerned, but one boy has a reputation and another was constantly getting his pin pulled last year. I hope too much boy-ish behavior doesn't spread our way too much. I might get snippy.
3. This afternoon we went to see the Russian-American Kids' Circus. One of the things I regret not doing (among many) while we were actually in Moscow, was seeing the Moscow Circus. This act was not affiliated with them, but it was the same style. They did not allow pictures, so imagine lots of acrobatics, unicycle tricks, mind-boggling balancing, rapid fire juggling--you name it, they juggled it. It was a neat show.
A. could not get past the fact that there were no elephants. In fact no animals at all.
She felt slightly jipped. And snippy.
I still can't believe someone asked little ol' me to review this book and sent me a free copy. For a snippy bookdweeb like me, it's the pinnacle of cool. Once again, these pesky late nights have messed up my reading routine too. I think I have been reading the same three pages of The Historian all week before passing out. Pity.
Time for a refill on chocolate. Otherwise I might get snippy.
