Coffee Spending

April 18th, 2012 at 03:43 pm

Yep, it's true. All I spent on Monday and Tuesday was cash for coffee. This morning I wrote a check for DD's upcoming field trip to the state capitol and another to the nature center.

My NY trip is a little less than a week away, and I'm a little concerned because every flexible appointment I need to make somehow ends up the day before I leave. I've got a meeting with the study abroad folks, the dog gets groomed, there's a play practice for DD, and a school meeting to prep us for the middle-school experience. Eeek! I'd better get completely packed over the weekend.

The comfy Keen walking shoes I bought at ebay have not arrived, and there is no word from the seller. The auction was won 10 days ago, and I think I'll look into the dispute process.

Somehow, I need to grade, clean the house, get a haircut, and do some shopping. Tomorrow's an easy school day for me as students are workshopping their big projects. I plan on doing some grading then.

I'm reading a wonderful moody Swedish book called _Astrid and Veronika__ which I like a lot. I'd prefer to flop on the sofa all day and read, but lots to do!

    Coffee and reading sound really good right now. I can see how they'd be tempting, especially as a combination.

    Hi Paulette! How are you?

    I sure hope your new shoes arrive PDQ. Suggest you set-out everything you plan to take, eyeballing to ensure it all fits. My fav trick is to hang all slacks/skirts on the rod, all shirts - one on top over next on an ultra thin hanger and slip a dry cleaner bag over. I can't explain but clothes don't crease. Shoes or anything heavy at the wheel end.

    You'll need a ton of patience at the airport. Your fellow travelers are woefully unprepared for the demands at security; they can't remember to empty pockets, open carry-on[why lock carry-on?], find their laptop/iPad, or limit liquids.
