If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

RBOC: Procrastination Edition

  • I have had several serious posts in my head all week but no time to write them.  Today I seem to be doing everything possible to avoid grading the second half of a stack of student papers.  The result is an RBOC post.
  • Last night I heard both sad and bad news for other people.  There is nothing I can do about the news except listen.
  • The Brute has taken to peeing in Pupzilla's food bowl.  Yesterday he did it while her leftover breakfast still in it.  
  • This afternoon I met with my latest doula-mom and her husband.  They are very cute and sweet and made me an incredibly delicious lunch with fresh baked buns and pie!
  • I have plans for this to be the Summer of Yoga.  I cannot wait for the semester to end.
  • I have developed a "bad attitude" towards work.  The trip to Emerald City did wonders for my mood but my attitude hasn't budged a bit from "evil."
  • We have a faculty meeting this week and I'm going to try my best to keep my mouth shut and my evil attitude tucked safely inside.
  • b was away doing a training this weekend.  The training happened to be in the same city that Angel lives in, so they met for dinner tonight.  I wish I was there.
  • Smudge has taken up residence under the covers on my side of the bed.  Sleeping with a nose full of cat hair is no fun indeed.
  • After days of thunderstorms, some spring weather showed up this afternoon.  I spent it sitting on my back patio looking up birthing videos (yeah, I know how to have fun).  
  • As nice as it is in my backyard, I really enjoy the evening sun at the front of the house.

What did poor Pupzilla do to piss off the Brute?

I have trouble keeping my evil side in check during meetings.

I am getting back into yoga again. I really miss it.

I love the cumulative effect of your random thoughts, your sense of humor, and your beautiful photos. You are not only a wonderful listener, but you always find the right thing to say.
