The mommies were nestled all snug in their beds...

That's right. It's 7:00. p.m. And I'm in my pajamas, in bed.

Aren't lap-tops handy?

What can I say? It's the end of the school year and I'm absolutely beat. There are teacher quality portfolios to create, end of level tests to give, mentor logs to turn in, and the list goes on. Add to that the fact that I've totally changed my eating/exercising patterns, and just started my period, and I'm lucky to have made it to 7.

(Barfing update: Nothing to report. I did "eat past satisfaction" tonight, and frankly, a good purge sounds like just the ticket--but I'll be strong. Oh. E now calls it "#3," as in, "You haven't been going number three again, have you?")

What else? Soph is fine. Big. Currently in the tub, and from what I'm overhearing, some mermaids have crossed her one to many times, and she's about to exact some retribution. I can't believe she only has six weeks of kindergarten left. Kindergarten is still little. 1st grade is big. She's taking ballet, and digs it the most. Have I mentioned that she's been on a "pants strike?" Since, like, December? She will only wear dresses. Thank god for Land's End and Hanna Anderson. Every Sunday I hang her 5 favorite dresses up, clip her leggings to them, and she's good to go for the week.

Apparently that's it for now. I'm trying to blog at least once a week, so we'll see how that goes.

Oh. Add a new blogging friend to your lists. http://dmotherof2.blogspot.com/ is a pal of mine, and has some funny shit to say.

Comment whore wants to know...

When is your bed time?

I dream of a laptop.

I'm not a dress girl myself but I LOVE seeing little girls in dresses. First grade. Wow.

I'm exhausted at 3pm and 7pm but after the kids are in bed I have new energy. Every night I tell myself I will go to bed at 10 - but every night I don't get in until after 11. And Ray typically wakes me up at 6 - not to mention the times I'm up in the middle of the night. I'm a very tired night owl and a fool.

Thanks, I think, for the plug. NOW the pressure is on!! I am jealous of you being in bed by 7. Jesse is back on nights and I'm glad to get into bed by 10 then it is the wind down from the bed time fights I just endured.

1 ish... 2 ish... sometimes i just shouldn't even bother going to sleep in the first place.

my word verification is very appropriate because i think it is the sound i make when i'm sleeping.

Okay comment whore, I will gratify you after reading for some time and feeling like a Peeping Tom.

I am an English teacher, too. Exhausted, too. Today, home with sick child - should feel like a holiday - but instead, catching up on laundry and changing sheets and - you got it, grading papers!

Like you, bed as early as possible, 8pm hopefully.
Even earlier sometimes: if child in shower, see me in bed wanting to sleep before she gets out and we start the whole "Now, brush your teeth," "Now, get in bed, "You may get a drink of water," "Now, get back in bed," "Choose clothing in the morning, NOW, get back in bed!" etc, etc, etc.

Verification also appropriate:

No idea, but somehow appropriate.
vokofrg, Yeah.

I'm glad you're talking about stuff. Talking about things helps.
