Random catch up
YOU GUYS! I am so, so, so tan-- so tan I am the same color as my Minnetonka boots. Or I was a week ago today when I took that picture, shocked to find myself at work in the world's shortest dress.
I am wicked fat but I don't seem to care. I mean, I care when I notice I in the mirror or something, but I don't care enough to not make these (perfection).
Dorothy still hates school, so much that we are thinking of pulling her out, but we have to wait until I am done with all my classroom observations because I really need someone to watch her while I do those-- so we'll revisit in a couple of weeks.
The kids don't tell me ANYTHING about their days. That's why I actually like Class DoJo even though charts and apps like these publicly shame kids and do nothing to change their behavior. AT LEAST I KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.
Fall is here, and the weather is starting to get chilly, even though you wouldn't know it to look at Dorothy's sundresses. This is partly because she doesn't have any fall clothes and party because she hates any garment with sleeves and doesn't like pants or tights and I am dreading taking her shopping because she probably won't even wear anything I buy.
Speaking of fall fashion, though! The things the kids are wearing on campus are CUTE and I can actually WEAR THEM, especially tunic dresses with flannels over the top.
Finally, shamefully, I am starting to love Wal Mart. I went there during last month's pregnancy test debacle because they actually undersell the dollar store and make eighty-eight-cent tests. But once I was there, I discovered $3 girls' leggings and sweatshirts (and they're CUTE), $4 dance tights that are actually small enough to fit Dorothy, a $29 coffee pot to match my kitchen, not to mention Pioneer Woman kitchen ware. What's not to love? Oh yeah. The deplorable way they treat their workers. Damn it.
But seriously, library story time, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN BY WHOLE LIFE? (Right there at the library, you ninny).
