A Thyme to Vent
This has been a very long week. My grades are due this Thursday; school is closed on Tuesday for election day but I have to be at professional development all day for teachers; I have a Teaching History Seminar Saturday morning at Cleveland's PBS television station; on Saturday I also have my sister's & brother-in-law's annual clambake which I will be attending with my friend w/benefits (I hate clams but I like the chicken & potatoes).
Side Note: One year when he & I went to a clambake, I decided to try clams but my stomach reaffirmed that I did not like clams & on the way home I got "very sick" in his brand new Dodge Ram truck which he promptly stopped & made me get out to barf my guts out on the side of the road, the road that we lived on....what is up with men & their trucks??? A little barf never hurts anything.....okay well it was a white truck but hey where was his compassion for me??? Well, at least he let me ride home in the front seat & not in the bed of the truck:)
But anyways, back to my issues......so today I had to run around after school.....I had to go to my favorite store to buy all my food & a really cool "snowman" hanging ($106 dollars later at that store!!!); then to Dillard's department store to the Clinque counter; then to the feed store which then meant when I got home I had to unload all the stuff I bought plus the 2 bags of chicken feed, the 4 bags of sheep feed, a bag of horse feed, a bag of rolled oats, & of course the 50# bag of bird seed because I do have like 6 feeders in my yard....what is that like 500 some pounds of feed??? And I still need to stop at the pet store tomorrow!! I started laundry tonight; I should be grading papers now but I am fried out on school; I am sitting on the dog pillow typing because my 3 dogs are sleeping on the couch; at least the weather is going to be beautiful this weekend; I have a seminar to go to this Thursday; another Teaching History seminar at Ashland University on next Saturday; I got paid today & I already feel poor; I am sure I am forgetting something else I have to do but for now I am going to attempt to read some of my new Hobby Farm magazine without falling asleep:)
