Codfish cakes. Beer. Vacuuming. Maybe some fruit or brownies. Beer. Finding paper plates. Beer.
These are the things that I can’t keep out of my mind this week. The reasons are, respectively, a midterm on Friday morning, my normal teaching activities, and the book club meeting I am hosting on Friday night. Of course, the overriding thought that then drowns everything else out is, “Three days until Spring Break…three days until Spring Break…just…three…days…”
To avoid putting you all through the torture of hearing any more about my tasks for this week, I offer a new post over at Modern Day Dinosaur. I’ll give you a hint: there are before and after pictures, and Men Without Hats!
How many more days until Spring Break? Woo hoo! Oh wait. That means the kids are home all week. Hmmm…. may I have a beer please?
Yeah, I think you’ll need a few of those ;)
Three days until spring break (maybe two now?). Did someone say brownies?
There definitely needs to be brownies.
I have from now (Wednesday night) until Saturday at 1:30. Not that I’m counting or anything.
are you in law school?
Not quite. I’m taking an Intro to Paralegal Studies class at the school where I teach. It’s a fishing expedition to see if it’s a viable next career. Law school isn’t in the plans (I literally JUST finished paying off my student loans, and I really don’t ever want any more of them) but I am not ruling out completely. If someone else pays ;)
I hope there’s lots of beer on your Spring Break ;) Headed over to read the Modern Day Dinosaur post!
