Ceasing or Seizing

Two blogs just doesn't seem funny anymore. I direct your attention to just the one:
Cooking for Love
Thanks for stopping by San Diego.

The Grey's Anatomy Project

Goal: Watch three seasons of Grey's by next week.
Current Progress: Four episodes of Season 1.
-I have never seen someone look so skinny in pants before. Holy cow Meredith is skinny.
-I am enjoying the soundtrack. And last night I chose to fall asleep with my ipod on, feeling like I too have a soundtrack to my life. In the dark, I just breathe one deep breath and then sink into Steely Dan telling me he wants to learn to play the saxophone.
-Spending this much time in front of my tv has made me want to:
1. Remove my carpet and lay down Pergo.
2. Rearrange my furniture, moving my tv to the corner, but it will block a window, so I think I am over that whim.
3. Get a new tv.

Use it! Own it!

I have decided, when I am at a loss to describe something, and that something is not stressful! It is breezy! It is easy and some may say, "a piece of cake"; to me, it is now going to be "Kindergarten and Cheesecake."

Cheesecake and Kindergarten

I dreamt last night that I was going to start a new blog called "Cheesecake and Kindergarten". I was going to abandon this one, and start a new one. Hmm, two things that are completely unrelated to me. I don't even like cheesecake.

Football Season?

I'm not ready. It is too hot here. It doesn't feel like Chili weather. It doesn't feel like the leaves will ever change. It just isn't time for football.

The last six years have had very specific traditions linked up to football season. It was consistent. It was routine. It was comfortable.

I think the theme for my 29th year is going to be "Letting Go." Letting go of the need to have plans always set. Letting go of the need to map out the week a week in advance. Just allowing myself to unravel a little so that it doesn't always seem so tense if there isn't a PLAN!

And the world will not end if I do not see every play of the game on Saturday. I should not schedule work around the start of the game. (meanwhile inside I am thinking...I don't want to work on Saturdays! That is just going to be torture! Maybe I'll call my boss NOW and let her know I am changing my mind. Now I want to work FRIDAYS!) I am going to start the whole "letting go" thing after I figure out my work schedule. gotta go!

You are a cute little virus, yes you are!

Why the baby talk? Because I had the delight of watching the first baby gifts in my family be received by my sister yesterday. And I have one question to ask the world.

Why do only BABIES get the super-soft blankets? At what point did they decide to deny adults the comfort?

Okay, I have a second question.

Who can STOP buying baby clothes once they start?? Not I! Oh, Sister, you are wondering why there was only ONE outfit included in your gift from me?? Just you wait! (It was the cutest outfit with "Give Peas A Chance" written across the front.)

Now to the subject most important right computer has a virus. And it is a tricky little virus. Almost worthy of BEING a virus it is so tricky.

When I went to download free software to remove the virus, the pop-ups came up so fast and furious that I couldn't do anything except scramble to stop the internet connection. And even that didn't stop them! And CTRL ALT DEL to stop processes, yea, that apparently has been disabled too. Could this be an excellent excuse to get a new laptop? You know, the PINK or LIME colored Dells??

I wish I could post a picture of my Mary Catherine Gallagher inspired cheerleading move, which I revived for our staff meeting today.

I successfully performed this move while announcing to all 85 of us that "My divorce is final Tuesday." **superstar move** Thankfully there was laughter and not looks of horror. It is my intention to make this information public and light-hearted before the name change goes into effect and people are too concerned about upsetting me to ask what's up. Because truthfully, I am fine! And it is a positive move for my life. And He and I BOTH agree it is necessary. And caused by both of our poor decisions. Now WHOSE decisions came first are no longer worth arguing about. NO LONGER WORTH ARGUING ABOUT, I SAY!!

Now Achilles wants more posts. Of course he does! He also does not know that tomorrow is the first day of school. That I am going to be working and not worrying about the Walrus noises from the neighborhood or the state of my lawn. But working also gets me all, well, worked up, so I am sure more posts will be inspired by the cherubs that I get the pleasure of performing for every day.

Stay tuned, year 8 of teaching begins manana.
