For Bethanyg... And a note on Sleep

The thudding on the porch last night came with TWO voices. Now I'm just confused. ha ha ha


And have I mentioned the weather?

Last week, the wet straps on our kids' snowshoes froze, making them impossible to tighten properly. We decided to bring them inside and dry completely. We also needed to inventory and pull out any broken snowshoes. So I went in to the office yesterday afternoon (Sunday) to clean up our mess of drying snowshoes, because our classrooms are being used this week for park training sessions. Being the closest staff member, I get to put in a few little crazy hours now and then to do chores like this.

So I was going to sleep in a bit today and go in to work late. Today's hours really didn't have a schedule - no schools were visiting us today.

I hit the snooze alarm at 8 a.m. I didn't wake up again until 11:30 a.m. Fawn probably thinks I'm dead. But she is an organization freak, so she probably loves the cleaning job I did yesterday at the ed. center, and thus she won't say anything about my... uh... lack of being there this morning.

I've decided that part of the reason I sleep so much here is the fact that this housing complex is sort of in a dark hole - surrounded by tall trees. And it's winter so the clouds and snow are here blocking the morning sun. My bedroom has the same amount of ambient light from about 8 a.m. to about 4:30 p.m. every day. And that's not a lot of light.

It looks like it's stopped snowing for the time being... I should shower and head to the office for a little bit.


  1. Hahaha!! Well, were they both male? Were they schizoid voices?! ;)

  2. brrrr :) Enjoy some of that cold weather for me. I know you're probably sick of it but it was almost 100-degrees here today. I miss winter (We never got one!)
