  1. sleet, snow, slush

    by , 02-10-2010 at 01:06 PM
    We had what would normally be plenty of snow last night, but I knew it was just a foretaste. My school thought so, too--they cancelled school today, and I bet they cancel it tomorrow, too. Since we have Friday and Monday off, that means I won't see the kids again until Tuesday. That sounds lovely, and I am not objecting to a day off, but it is difficult for non-teachers to understand why I have very mixed feelings about that. Every day off a kid has is two days (or more) of lost ground in school. ...

  2. At least it's something

    by , 02-08-2010 at 09:20 PM
    I made it to the gym for weight machines Friday before work because the weather forecast didn't bode well. My prediction was correct; we had two feet or so of snow by mid-Saturday, and though I could have made it out of my parking space Sunday morning I didn't trust the roads, so I bailed on the BCAF tournament I was signed up for. I see Jessi1 won it. Today, I made it to school okay, but when I managed to snag a parking space when I got home, I decided rather than abandon it for whatever I could ...

  3. early workout

    by , 02-02-2010 at 06:09 PM
    I woke up at 5:00 a.m. and made it over to the gym by 6:00 for a machine workout because I knew I would be calling applicants for the open position at my school and wouldn't get out of work until 5:00 p.m.. My husband went later in the day, and one of the guys who works there reported to him that I had been in, wearing a Key West shirt. My husband is insidious; he makes friends wherever he goes, and everybody knows him. People are always telling me what a great guy he is. It's very odd, because ...

  4. Chilly night

    by , 02-01-2010 at 10:36 PM
    I know it's only February, but I'm tired of the cold already. Saturday when it started snowing unexpectedly, I set out to walk to the store in my lovely warm quilted DKNY coat that I bought last winter. I realized within a block that my lovely warm quilted DKNY coat is a size large and that therefore it was funneling all the cold air right up to my armpits. I've lost 30 pounds since I bought the darn thing, and it was no longer able to do its job. I hopped on the next bus, went to the North Face ...

  5. gaining step

    by , 01-27-2010 at 10:21 PM
    Yesterday I made it to the gym. I don't want to do the weight machines only once a week, but that's better than nothing.

    I came in early tonight and drilled with Michelle, working on strips of false counterattack/real counterattack.

    We had a bunch of people, and I fenced Meng, Bridget (who actually fenced me properly!), Michelle, the two kids from the Christian Academy, Tim (two or three times), Meng, Tony, and Charlotte. Thank heavens, Tony and Charlotte stopped being ...
