Not Dead Yet

Good grief and golly.

It's been a week. A whole bloody week. Wow. I'm so sorry.
The good news is, I'm not dead. Nope, not even close.

But, I am exhausted.

A preview of things to come:

  • Comments for you!First off, thank you thank you thank you for your comments. You all are awesome! I will comment back on your pages ASAP--we've only JUST hooked up our internet and I am swamped with back to school projects at the moment.
    I have 76 unread posts in Google Reader from you lovely folks. Good gee and golly. Yay for happy reading!
  • Cottage Updates
    We've done it.
    We are living in a little house in the woods.
    And we love it.
    Well, except for the bugs. More on that later.
    The place currently looks like a storage unit with all the boxes, but, as SOON as we have the place in order, pictures will be up, I promise :]
  • McDuck
    Yes, we have named the duckling. To make things better, he's named after a classic Disney character from one of my favorite childhood cartoons. (They just don't make shows like this any more and it's a crying shame)
    Because he spends every night huddled against his reflection (aka "Mirror Friend") we are going to bring him to an animal rescue home with other ducks. He needs his own kind. At some point. We've been saying that for a week . . . and still, I come home from work and am greeted by an outcry of "PEEP! PEEP!! PEEP!!!PEEEP!!! LOVE MEEEEEEEEE!!!!"
    And I DO love him. :]
    Poopy, peeping little thing. 
  • Hear me now?
    My old phone made an untimely semi-death . . . so now I've joined the Smart Phone revolution. I'm not sure I like the fact that my phone is smarter than I am, but I'm loving Angry Birds.
    Yeah, I'm a total sell-out.
    In other news, the hubs does not adjust to change quite as quickly or easily as he had believed.
  • It's that time of year again . . .
    I am two days through my three days of teacher orientation. Then a week off. The following week, orientations for parents and students. AND THEN SCHOOL!!! AAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!
    Yeah, I think a stress-scream session and ice-cream indulgence is soon in the works.
And that is life in a nutshell.
There will be a real post before you know it, but for now . . . This is the best my tired, over-thinking little brain can squeeze out.

Have a great week!


  1. school starts so soon. it's sickening. well, not for me. i mean i'm done. but for other people. i still hear "school starts in x..." and I'm like what?! what classes am I taking? oh wait. HA joke.

    You should bring home the other rescue ducks and have a duck family in your home. problem solved.

  2. Glad you made it into your new place, can't wait to see some pics. Wow, your school starts early, my husband's doesn't start until late August. What grade do you teach?...good luck!

  3. Hey! I am loving the duck! It brought back memories of the two you had when we were little that swam around in your kiddie pool in the back yard....and my mom wouldn't even let me have a dog! Can't wait to see pics of the cottage! I know you and Chris are super excited!


Good morning, Starshine! The Earth says, "Hello!"
