Happy Monday!

So the preschool staff starts up at church today. I’m excited. They’re a great bunch of women – funny, smart, really nice (because you have to be nice to be a preschool teacher or assistant which is why I work in the office upstairs). We also have a new Director and she’s been awesome to work with. I was sad when Leanne, the previous Director resigned so she could go back to her real love – teaching – but I knew it was the right thing for her and her family. The new Director, Shannon, is great, too. So while I miss Leanne in the cubicle, I now have Shannon in the cubicle. Poor Shannon.

Katie started her year as a sophomore today. A sophomore. That would be 10th grade. That means she only has three years of school left. This is my baby. How is it I’m old enough to have a kid in college and my baby in the 10th grade? I must have been comatose for a while because I don’t remember this happening!

Todd had sinus surgery last Friday. His third. The last one was probably 11 years ago or so and thankfully they don’t pack the sinuses anymore. That’s so disgusting! Poor guy, though. It’s swollen all up in there and he so desperately wants to blow his nose, but that would be a huge no-no. He has to breathe through his mouth and in the morning he says, “Yum! Fresh turd!” (because, you know, it tastes like he has poo in his mouth.) I’m happy to report that I’ve been a decent nurse. Not a great nurse. I would never aspire to be totally nurturing because it would just be a set up for failure. But I have been patient with him and waiting on him and actually nice. And I even feel sorry for him. I know! Me – the soulless wench I mentioned in my previous post. I do have it in me to feel compassion. Who knew?

Taylor is still enjoying camp. I keep forgetting to ask him which camp craft he likes the best. (Note to self: ask Tay which camp craft he likes the best.) I’ll be sure to let you know what I find out.

Sookie is still Sookie. A pain in the rear, but a cute pain so we’ll keep her. Lucky for her she has redeeming qualities such as snuggly and funny. Otherwise I’d have to give her the boot.

That’s what’s going on in my part of the world. And now I’m off to make coffee for the preschool ladies. We get to eat and party just a little this week before the kids start next week. This is probably my favorite week of the year.
