I’m keeping it short today. There’s a huge pile of marking waiting for me on the kitchen table, and I need a decent sleep if I am going to survive this week. There are times when keeping things running here at Blue Speckled Pup is a minor task, but some weeks school and life join forces to make me feel like the proverbial chicken minus its foolish head.
Rather than write some witty discussion about life or pets or food or my uterus, I thought I’d share my first Christmas photo. It makes me think I should invest in an eyelet pinafore; it’s a great little look for me. Let’s ignore the fact that my butt looks enormous, please.
Today I got up, took Sherm to daycare, swam my lengths, taught my heaviest day of the week, marked a bunch of stuff, built a quiz for tomorrow, compiled some resources, did my photocopying, stopped at the post office to buy penny stamps (don’t ask), picked up the dog, bought some groceries, threw my swimsuit in the wash, and sat down to write this post. By the time I got to my computer tonight, I knew I wouldn’t have much time or energy, so out came the old photos.
And now this nostalgic picture of bald little Kay reminds me: I need to start thinking about Christmas presents. Oy.
