Drive By...

I am just a gi-normous disappointment tonight. Here's what I got for ya:

1. One unintelligible article on how to help challenged and unique learners with homework was completed and emailed as of five minutes ago. There was a lot of fancy language and use of italics. And it was ten pages long. That's the limit of my knowledge base. I don't actually have children and have never done homework with them. I'm the teacher. I just give it...

2. I think I may have discovered the glitch in my healthy eating plan. It has to do with my hatred of all natural foods. More on this later. For those of you advocating the consumption of protein in the last round of comments, you will be pleased to know that I had turkey for dinner. I sort of feel a little better...

3. I am still tired. I woke up repeatedly between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. due to an unending nightmare about a class I am taking next semester on Administrative Supervision. For some reason I got it in my head that this class involved a Project Adventure sort of twist that had all of us going up a mountain and living off the land. Everyone else was psyched. I was not. I believe that the great outdoors is best appreciated through the window of a moving vehicle. No one could clearly explain to me how we might attend to "calls of nature." This might also be a reflection of the addition of more fruit to my diet and my hatred thereof... Whatever the cause, it was all very disturbing.

4. I have to make appetizers for the Christmas Party at Job #2 scheduled for Friday night. I am purchasing them. There is no debate on this subject. I do not see myself fighting out of the nice divot I've created in the couch cushions to make anything between now and Friday night. And, for the record, whatever I purchase will be fat laden and crunchy. And greasy. And highly inadvisable for human consumption. And I may just eat it all before I get there.

5. I promise to be a better blogger tomorrow night once I have recovered from all of the above.

The Sheep appreciates your patience. She is now going to consume a low-cal ice cream thingy on a stick and start rethinking that plan she had a while back that involved marrying for money.

I should eat more fruit, too, and think of you when I do so that you benefit from fruit-solidarity.

Way to go, Sheepie! Never make appetizers if you can purchase nice, crunchy, fat-laden (translation:yummy)ones at the store.

I was going to make a few "marrying for money" suggestions, but I figure you may not be in the mood for teasing. Just keep looking forward to the break that's around the corner!

The marrying for money thing never works out the way you hope. Look at Britney and K-Fed or Anna Nicole and the old guy. I suggest looking into winning the lottery. You won't have to share it with anyone if you win but I suppose the if is a big part.

maybe the healthy eating plan is screwing with your mind....eat some junk. It'll help. But not in the long run!

Sheepie, I think you need some rest and then your balance will be restored. As in: some fruit and vegetables, and a little junk too (weight watchers makes some good desserts that are only 3 pts each and don't kill your diet. I've got the chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream thingy in my freezer for just such a sugar deficit). Also, the outdoors is lovely to walk and cycle in, but so are frequent breaks to restaurans with adequate restaurant facilities. Camping frightens me -- that IS a nightmare. Hope you feel better soon.

Restoration of a decent diet. I have no idea of what that consists of but the only veggies I eat are brocoli and green beans, the only fruit is apples (unless you count lemon slices in tea a fruit). M put on lots of weight on a fruit diet. He switched to a veggie diet. Who knew how many calories celery, potatoes, corn and carrots have in them.

I want to eat healthy too, but I hate most of the 'healthy' food, I stuff it down and try not to taste it. Do you think it has something to do with kids born in the sixtys? I dunno, but I sure do feel your pain.....

I have children & I have done homework with them. Challenged learners or not, it could all be made better if teachers just stopped giving homework.

You can expect to see this theory in print later ;)

Enjoy the candy cane induced stupor

Good for you for purchasing your appetizers. Anything you can do to make this busy time easier, right?!
