I can honestly say, I have nothing to talk about today. No kid battles or brags. No sleep issues.
Oh, I did get my hair cut. It’s okay. Homer likes it. There are bangs.
And there’s lots of snow and ice today. After waiting for the bus for 25 minutes, we finally drove the kids to school, and then understood why the bus was so late. There were cars stuck all over the sub-major roads and side streets. No snow day though, which was disappointing this morning, but I understand the decision now that I’m looking out my office window at a clear, bright day.
There has been a big issue on campus the last couple of weeks (you know, one of the BIG hot-button political-type things that often comes up on university campuses). Somehow, I’m very involved (not AT ALL in a political way, mind you) and I’m getting to see how fallible even the most poised and experienced of senior administrators are when they don’t have the solution that makes the issue go away. It has been enlightening to say the least.
I’ve been watching the HBO show In Treatment. Homer hates it because, “it’s just talking!” But I love it – can’t get enough of it. Really.
Next week is March Break for Lisa and Bart. They’ll be going to Camp Grandma and Grandpa’s, where they will get their fill of Whatever they Want! Whenever they Want It! My parents are retired teachers and they love to have this kind of untethered access to the kids and their young minds. We’ll see how they feel after a week of it.
