I know you hate staying at the vet's. But we're going on a short vacation, under two weeks, and we can't find anyone to stay with you. Or anyone for you to stay with. We do this because we don't want to worry about you. We love you. ... Read more

Paying it forward

I went to my dr today, for my last chiro adjustment before we leave tomorrow. There was a lady who was about my age, waiting to pay and leave, looking kind of shaken - with a bandage on her nose and chin. "Car accident?" I asked sympat... Read more

I was in a car accident in Washington DC. My plane landed, I went directly outside and found a taxi to go to my hotel - we were at an intersection when BAM we were rearended by another taxi. I had been on the ground maybe 15 minutes total (inc... Read more

Someone mashed up my flowers!

Wednesday, July 22, 2009      0 comments

Apparently while I was away, the upstairs and downstairs people had relatives visiting. (Downstairs Lady is the sister of Upstairs Lady. But mostly we deal with Upstairs Lady's husband, who is a real estate guy.) Anyhow, DH reports there were... Read more

Why is it not a perfect world?

Sunday, June 28, 2009      0 comments

Why is it that when I find the perfect Birk sandal in gold, it isn't available in the US? Why is it that the perfect travel dress didn't go on sale online until this week, and I'm flying out on Friday - no way to get the dress here on tim... Read more

Dust dust go away

Friday, June 26, 2009      2 comments

The Sahara dust is here. I thought it sounded romantic when I first moved here - dust, from the Sahara, floating across an ocean and arriving on our tiny little island. Dust that Lawrence of Arabia breathed in. Dust from the Tuaregs and camel... Read more

I was working on the mural, scraping bits and smears of concrete off the tile. Students wandered through - some from basketball camp, some from summer school to make up credits, and some from the enrichment program. One boy, who I recogniz... Read more

The right tool for the job

Thursday, June 18, 2009      0 comments

I've been cleaning the mural for the past week or two. I had been using our plastic putty knives, but they're rather soft and they shred when scraping dried cement for long periods of time. Another teacher saw me using the back end of a mi... Read more

Dear DOE:

Please don't waste my time with a stupid mandatory workshop that has very little to do with my job description. I already include reading and writing in my art classes. Art also naturally includes math skills as well as what Social Studies tea... Read more

Discretion is the better part of valor

Tuesday, June 16, 2009      0 comments

Also known as: it's probably a good idea to not stand in a thunderstorm scraping a mural with a metal putty knife. I could work for a while more. It's raining off and on. Zero sun on the wall. I could scrape off some more concrete. I co... Read more
