*We have had more school cancellations due to rain than snow this year.
*That is odd.
*Even odder is that this is not the first time it's happened that way.
*My school district is in a swamp.
*Or it was. Now it's in a lake.
*Got the text at 5:42 this morning. No school.
*Buses don't float...
*I'm normally kind of giddy at the prospect of a day off.
*Yesterday was a baaaad day.
*Series of baaaaad days.
*Some time off would be good if it didn't mean making up days in June.
*Kids falling apart.
*And by "falling apart," I mean "police involvement."
*And by "police involvement," I mean "felonies."
*And by "felonies," I mean at least three separate kids in three separate incidents.
*If we are at this stage of the festivities in March, you can only imagine how exciting things are going to be in June when we are making up Flood Days.
*And it's hot.
*And we all know we should have been done by then.
*Finished plying the yarn I started last weekend.
*I hate to see that little bit of singles on the bobbin.
*I also hate finishing plying.
*Want to move on...
*Plying was the right thing to do.
*An empty bobbin is a happy bobbin.
*Plus I was having angst over whether or not to enjoy a day off in the middle of the week that comes with make up days in June.
*Took my mind off it with the plying.
*Everyone should say, "Happy Birthday!" to Mommy Sheep!
*I was home on a flood day so I could call her early to wish her a happy day and whatnot.
*That was a good thing.
*Ran errands early in the morning since the flood waters aren't quite so vigorous up here in my neck of the woods.
*That was also a good thing.
*Still not loving the idea of those make up days...
*I stepped on the Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty today.
*He's been underfoot for almost two years now so I think it's pretty good that I've managed to avoid him up to this point.
*Sometimes overfoot since that's where he likes to sit.
*Still felt badly about it.
*Not cool to hurt an animal even if it's unintentional.
*Even less cool when he runs away and gets smacked by his sister who mistakes his flight for lunging.
*The AGK is currently sitting on my foot.
*I'm afraid to move...
*I have to go back to work tomorrow.
*He will eventually have to get off my foot, right?
That's the best I can do on a Wednesday when I didn't go to school. Normally flooding is kind of exciting, but I think we've all had our fill of that nonsense by now. It's gotten boring. We are no longer fascinated by Sheepie surviving the raging waters. It's old.
Maybe next week, I'll go to school for five straight days and have something more interesting to talk about.
