Let's catch up!

So it's been a while since I've filled you in on the goings-on and what-not; but mercy! -- I've been having so much fun! Annie the Wonder Cat tried to keep my blog going for me while I was off gadding about, but she has always had trouble spelling "Oklahoma," so she eventually said screw it. She's like that.

Well, now I'm back, and I can't wait to tell you all about my adventures!

Over the next few days, wanna hear about my trip to Texas and Oklahoma with my sister? You got it! Do you love the sign posted on the door of the Pioneer #3 restaurant?!

I can tell you all about my trip to Rhode Island with my dad, to see my godson get married -- and how old that makes me feel.

And I had a great day yesterday, when I got to go back into the classroom and teach a group of college students. The topic was Chaucer and The Canterbury Tales -- so I just know that's a post you won't want to miss. Make sure you have done the assigned reading before you come to class!

But today a mound of laundry as big as my . . . . -- well, it's really big -- is waiting for me. Do you know that low-grade feeling of guilt and dread you get when you've been blowing off stuff for way too long? That's my diagnosis right now -- so I had better get crackin'!

tangent: Wouldn't it be nice if the Christmas decorations you see in the corner of my dining room were there because I am so proactive and ahead of the game when it comes to preparing for the holidays? Wouldn't you be sad if I told you they've been there since . . . . OK, let's just drop it.
