In the words of my teenage students, Epic Fail.

I was *soclose* to posting every day this month; I still had a few amusing (to me) titles playing on the sound of the word 'may.'

Oh well.

I was so outrageously exhausted Saturday after my first day of walking around Portland (taking a class on Art & Architecture to complete my teaching certificate maintenance), I was incapable of lifting my body to attempt typing after dinner. Not to mention the only coherent thoughts running through my mind were "Must. sleep. So. sleepy. Sleep now."

Ditto Day 2.

I was out for 18 hours (8 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day) and walked 12.2 miles. In my rainboots and hastily-purchased-Friday-afternoon-for-$12.99-at-Goodwill unattractive-but-functional [I found out after 17 hours of downpour] raincoat.

The class was fun, despite the rain, and highly informative & interesting [slideshow coming soon]. I am hoping to use what I learned for teaching a Pacific NW history elective but in the meantime, I am planning to not move any of my muscles unnecessarily for a few more days.

Sounds like you need a 'there, there'. ;)

Love you.

Awwww, Stu is a sweetheart :)

You know what Steph? Better to post when you feel it than be forced to do it on a schedule. When I'm forced to do ANYTHING I end up resenting the hell out of it, and it shows.

I follow a few people who rarely post anything, but when they do... it's like an epiphany, and totally worth the time it takes to ponder and remember their words. Just my 2¢ ;)

unattractive? I think that raincoat looks pretty cute.

Sounds like a cool class!

Well, I don't know how epic it is. But I know how you feel. In terms of setting goals, it can seem very epic.

Cute raincoat. I can't believe you persevered even in the rain. THAT makes up for not posting once.

I am coveting your nap.
