My sister told me that my posts are a little lackluster lately. This is the same woman who sent an email to the whole family saying that she's going to starve to death just because my mother is going to Texas for two months. But she does have a point. My life seems a little boring lately. Of course boring is good compared to my friend whose daughter fell off the second story landing and broke both her wrists.
I only have so much spark to go around, and I have to save a good chunk of it for teaching. There's nothing worse than having a zombie go on and on about osmosis. Still, that leaves a dull mom for the kids. What I need is another conference to go to. Until then, welcome to the real me.
