Reagan tagged me to write seven random or quirky facts about myself.

Hmmm....I have so many quirks that it is hard to start!

1. I do not enjoy early morning conversation. Most of my family and friends know this and know that I cannot speak coherently until about 9 or 9:30 am.

2. I am the best procrastinator in the universe.

3. I do not like band-aids or taped bandages. Adhesive on the skin makes my skin crawl.

4. I am just coming to grips with sandals. I tripped on a sidewalk when I was five because my sandal got caught in the little crack on the sidewalk. I had to go to the ER and get three stitches and miss going to see Cinderella with the kids. I did get to go later but they went without me! So, I did not wear sandals for many years and I still do not like dirty toes!

5. And related to toes and sandals, I had my first pedicure three weeks ago and I am going to have another one before I go to the beach.

6. I love bakeries! I love to go inside and look at all the different types of goodies they carry and I love the "Bakery Day" that Tammie and I established for our adventures. [On Bakery Day you can stop and eat at any bakery you see and want to visit.] I adore the flaky, layered pastries like a croissants or a sfolia but I also love bread.

7. I HATE to sweat. I hate sweat on my forehead that makes my bangs wet and then makes them have that stupid wave.

I now tag anyone reading this that Reag did not tag. You can put yours on the comments here.

Things are Muich Calmer

There is a little more calm in my life this weekend. The intersession class that I ended up teaching is kinda fun. There are only two students and they both seem interested in the subject matter.

Reagan and I are beginning to paint the dining room. It looks good but I think we are going to have to do another coat. I do like red.

Finals Week Trauma

My computer crashed last Saturday. All my grades, three student papers that were emailed to me. All my photos from the past seven years. Our IT people could not retreive it. Then Willie said that he had some new software and he would like to try it out. It worked! I have all the stuff except the emails. They may be here but I can't find them right now. Willie is Superman in Crocs.

Where is the Light?

I am almost at the end of this long, long black tunnel also known as spring semester. I can not yet see the light. I think it is there and maybe I will see it next week.
