today is beige

Nothing quite says "I feel blah" like a uniform of off-white jeans and oatmeal-colored sweater. That is what called my name from the closet this morning. I tried to jazz it up a bit with my butterfly-bottle cap necklace but I think I still resembled a boring old Popsicle stick.

I feel terrible about the fact that every morning I stay in bed as long as possible, counting the minutes hours days until summer begins. It's like saying "I can't wait for..." over & over again; we miss good little things when we do that too much. And it's kind of insulting to the ones we're with in the here & now.

From now until June 13 (32 real days, 21 school days), I will be writing a daily blessings list over at A-Lister. Because if I don't, I just might go from beige blandness to ScaryTeacherGothBlack.

i think if i had known my teachers were counting down the days until summer as hard core as i was- it would have totally changed my perception of them! i would have thought them more human :)

It's just a crappy week. I agree.

(I just had a sucky bad headache. And those recorders? I love Mr. Hurst, but I am done tonight...)

Here's rainbow happiness. Damn it.

You remind me of Susan Sarandon lamenting that she was dressed in the same color scheme as the DMV.

Gratefulness is good.

Try that Goth look over at Wild Oats and see what unfolds . . .

And that bottle cap necklace is coooooooo-ooooool.

June 13 is Laura's last day of school too. CAN'T WAIT!!!

Oh, oh, I just read Stu's comment, he is a KEEPER.

I think there is is universal teacher funk right now. Everyone is cranky at work.

I think it's a great idea, to always remember to count your blessings. I've been teaching it to my kids... might as well do it as well!
