news in brief

I'm trying to find a new map to see my visitors. MapLoco, which I was using, just decided not to work. I like seeing where all you readers are from, and was quite surprised to find people I don't know reading my blog! That's cool, though, cuz I went and read their blog (hi Paige!). Reading others' blogs to me is the same as trying to see inside people's houses as you drive past. You're always just a little curious about what it looks like, or what they're doing...

In the adventures of Weight Watchering, I lost another 2.5 pounds for a total of 5. That's also a total of 11 lbs from when Charlie left my body, and it was enough to get me in some of my baggier XL shirts. Thank goodness. I haven't seen this weight since end of last school year! More to come.

Speaking of end of the school year, I went in to school today to do some putting away and visiting with coworkers. Had drama that I wasn't expecting when I went to speak to my boss, and discovered I will be removed from my room and put on a cart again next year. I, being my emotional self, totally overreacted to this news and the fact that my boss seemed unprepared as to where I was going to - didn't know what rooms, didn't even know if I would have a place to call "home" (like a desk or place to put papers?). Of course, I suppose I threw him off balance too when I approached him with a concern, which I won't go into here. Anyway, Doug gave me the equivalent of a slap in the face to calm me down (he didn't really slap me, folks. Just used good words) and remind me that it's not actually the room I have an issue with, it's feeling shoved around and forgotten because I've been out on leave. I do feel like I'm getting the shaft, as other people work part-time but get rooms due to their subject, and I'm the one never in the same d*** place any year. Anyway. Enough about that.

Roman's birthday was awesome, and he was awesome all day. It was one of those days where you think an angel has come and replaced your boy, forgetting he can be so sweet sometimes. He behaved well everywhere we went. Tonight we took him to see "Kung Fu Panda" and left Charlie with a babysitter. It was time that Roman had us to himself again. We then went out for ice cream, and Ro actually fell asleep on the way there. 7:30pm! And you will be shocked, I actually forgot my camera. No pictures at the theater, no pictures of ice cream. I cannot believe it myself. I was so excited to get out of the house without the diaper bag, I forgot to grab the stupid thing. By the way, I give KFP a big thumbs up. Totally enjoyable and funny. The scary guy not too scary.

And knock on wood that I'm jinxing ourselves, but Charlie is consistently sleeping from 10pm-6am every night. Simply amazing. Funnily enough, I'm getting more emotional the more sleep I get. Huh.
