Not quite morning...

The schoolbuses are chugging through the intersection outside, and I am somehow dressed and ready to go already, waiting on the coffee to brew. Is it morning if it's still dark? I prefer a life that follows the sun a little more closely. Laurel woke up at 4:55 today, making it to within 20 minutes of my alarm. In a few minutes I'll be in the car on my way out of the city, travel mug in hand. (You may recall that I once pledged to never again live a life where travel mugs were necessary part of the morning routine..."I'm finishing my coffee...")

There will be papers to grade and detentions to write. I will probably have at least one moment of panic at the whiteboard where I think I've forgotten how to calculate the mean, and then will realize that it's all fine and everything up there makes sense. My days at school pass quickly, I think because I have a really nice schedule. Teach four classes, lunch, prep, teach, prep, teach, go home. Laurel and I will be reunited and hopefully we'll go for a run this afternoon, since I'm signed up to run a 10K in two weeks.

Coffee's done!

When do you correct homework?

Where does Laurel go to daycare?

Hmmmmm,
Sounds familiar. All you need now is two big dogs and a nightly walk :o) Our big news; Aunt Donna's mom joins us in one week for a one month visit, on the day after her 80th birthday. We will have a full house again. Donna, her mom, Heather, Eric, Cameron, Abby and Chloe. Oh, and me too. Lisa is also a frequent visitor. Life is good.
Love,
Uncle Joe
