Dearest Captain Spazzmataz,
(And anyone else who regularly reads our posts) I’m so terribly sorry that I completely forgot about my post. It was a hectic time, what with Sparhawk’s graduation, your visit with MamaBird, and the ever stressful finals week. I’ve had bunches of work to do. I suppose I didn’t realize how much preparation I needed to put into this week, and I failed to do so this weekend. Now I much play catch up.
However, it has been a good week so far. On Monday, I encountered my arch nemesis. (He who shall not be named, but you know who.) He said you are surprisingly skilled at Trivia Crack. I said absolutely of course you were, as you are a very smart girl. Then the best thing ever happened. I got a new computer at work. It’s a laptop, and it’s beautiful. For a windows computer that is. However, this is wonderful because I can now take all of my files and computer needs home, where I much prefer to work. The only downside is that I have no way to charge the laptop at home because I am windows free. I’ll find a way to work around it. Sparhawk stayed late at school yesterday evening, so I ordered Papa Johns. Plus dessert. I am weak.
Today has also ended up being fairly pleasant. All of my English III classes were taking a test, so it was a quite day in my classroom. Tragically, this slightly adds to my finals week stress because these tests are now my responsibility to grade, but c’est la teacher vie. I don’t know the French word for teacher. A great and terrible unrest had befallen our quaint little fur filled home, as Sparhawk had misplaced his wallet for the past three days. The worry of this culminated into a full house search these evening, as he had a considerable amount of cash in there meant for Christmas shopping. Fortunately, he just found it a friends house, so now we can rest easy and the search can come to an end.
As I type this post, Nixen keeps trying to steal one of my gloves to chew on. She’s tricksy. ALSO! I finished my 75th book today! I am officially finished with my 2014 book challenge, and can now receive my presents. And by now, I mean when I next see you. Which isn’t very far away. I ordered the mystery box from Julep today, per your recommendation, and had it shipped to the house. But you cannot open it until I am there, in the event that its arrival predates mine. I really enjoyed your post from last week (and its timeliness), though I’m semi-confident that I find the drunk polly pockets to be very scandalous.
Anyway! I am now going to leave you to resume my grading madness. Eventually, some day the pile will start to shrink. I am just trying to avoid having to take all of this to St. Louis with me. That would be less fun.
I’m sorry I have no wreckage to accompany my post. I promise to double up this weekend. Good luck on your finals, and I’ll see you in just six days!
