random thoughts

No topic today -- or rather, too many topics.
I haven't read the paper yet because I've been too busy correcting and recording grades in preparation for parent-teacher conferences.
I haven't finished preparing for parent-teacher conferences because I'm waiting for the laundry to finish drying itself.
I haven't folded the already-dry laundry because I was helping Amigo with his homework.
Amigo is taking a break because he is feeling overworked from difficult homework. He'll -- well, we'll -- finish after supper.
I actually started Christmas shopping already.
What?
Yes, that has some relevance, sort of. Our family loads up on birthdays in November, December, and January, so shopping ahead is the only way to handle these three months without totally breaking the bank. I shopped the back-to-school sales for clothing (no specifics, I know some of you read the blog!) and picked up a couple of random things from a book sale. I have a few leads as to online order possibilities, and I may get to those later tonight or later this week. I have a hidden storage space in the attic (snicker, I said hidden!) for gifts I've already bought.
So...Hence... Well, anyway, even though I haven't finished the newspaper, the laundry, or prepping for conferences, I can pat myself on the back for getting a head start on holiday shopping.

I enjoyed your comment on Troll Baby. Right on.

My family loads up on birthdays in October. My mother, father, sister and brother in law. My reward? My own birthday in November.

Daisy, thanks for visiting my blogspot (musingsbyme2). You and I appear to have a lot in common. We have many "loved" ones in WI. Also, I am in the education field, working in a elementary school.

Hang in there. I know that somewhere down the line, it gets better. LOL!!! For truth, it already has!
