<p>Just seems like another Monday to me.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Except that I'm taking Friday off this week, so maybe today is actually Tuesday!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif" style="width:24px;height:24px;" title=""></p>

<p>G'morning folks.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not fun:  There are ants on my desk this AM!  Not many, but enough.  While I do respect life, I can't very well usher ants out the door, and since they bite... the little buggers are meeting their demise on the other side of a scrunched up kleenex.  Now I have this weird feeling that one is crawling on my arms, even though I don't see one there.  /shudder.  This is going to drive me nuts!!</p>

That always happens to me when I see bugs.  I can see a <em>picture</em> of a cockroach and immediately break into itching.  I am so totally freaked out by them.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyhow, just saying hello.  I should probably go back and read the last week of threads or something just to have half a clue what's going on around here...</p>

I get this when I hear that someone has the stomach flu, or their kid has the stomach flu, or they know of someone that has the stomach flu - I immediately start to feel queasy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Speaking of queasy, I just scarfed down a Panera Cinnamon Crunch bagel, yes with cream cheese and now I feel oogy. blech.   </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Early to work today - early to leave, because today is DD's first day of behind the wheel driving instruction and I've gotta pick her up and drop her off there.  Hm, maybe I'll have her drive home.  eeeks!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The administrator I work for is out of the office all week so this is my chance to get all caught up!  Now I just need to quit playing on the interwebs and get to it!<br>

<p>Oooh, a hooky day sounds oh so nice! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun: DH is at home with the kids today and they are all going to come down and meet me for lunch.  Also, I get to play hooky tomorrow since we don't have child care.  Not sure what the boys and I are going to do yet though.....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>More fun:  Looking at the forecast, it is supposed to be COOL this weekend (lows in low 50s; highs in low 70s).  Looks like a good weekend for racing!</p>

<p>Morning. I've been lurking, but just haven't had much to say. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>After 10 days of mostly lovely weather we're back to f-ing hot and humid. GAK. I'm so ready for this to go a.w.a.y.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>11 lumps of clay are waiting for me to throw them. 10 of those will be yarn bowls. My yarn vendor friend had 3 fiber shows coming up and wants to take yarn bowls with her, so I need to make A LOT of them. This is just a start. The other lump is for a wedding bowl. </p>

<p>Morning.   I am counting on you guys to entertain me this week.   More to dos than I can possibly do, so I'm prioritizing, delegating and saying no f-ing way to a few as well.   I've declared my brain a drama free zone.   Any one who attempts to insert drama is getting informed of the policy nicely <em>once</em>. This means I won't be speaking to my mother by noon today;)</p>

<p>Good morning!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now that most summer grades are in, I can start clearing out the last of one particular backlog.  Our primary campus has selective admissions but our regional campuses are open enrollment, so students who start at the regionals have to go through a review process to be permitted to make the campus change.   I get to do the review for all Arts and Sciences requests.   I have about 40 students for whom I need to see summer grades before I can make a decision.  I am so sick of this particular task, I've reviewed probably 700+ students since late April.  <br>

<p>Amy, you're funny. :)</p>

<p>I failed to mention I slipped on my walk this morning, wasn't hurt at all but got my shorts dirty (grrrrrr) and I ended up having to shower this morning even though I did last night and it wasn't in my plan this morning to do so.  *sigh*</p>

This - yesterday's fantasy football draft party food I noshed on all day caught up me right before I was about to sleep - felt extremely queasy, so I just kinda' had to hang out until the feeling left.  Thus, some extra coffee's on the docket for today</p>

<p>Not fun:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In front of the doctor neighbor's house, which is right next door to us:</p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/55844/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="e-steve.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13735" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13735/width/432/height/288" style="; width: 432px; height: 288px"></a></p>
<p>Can you see the stream of water running out between the grass and the curb?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Directly across the street from them, in front of neighbor Sue's house:</p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/55848/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="e-sue1.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13737" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13737/width/360/height/288" style="; width: 360px; height: 288px"></a></p>
<p>See how the grass is heaved up at the curb and the far side of the sidewalk? Water streaming out from both.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>See the pretty fountain?</p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/55850/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="e-sue2.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13738" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13738/width/360/height/288" style="; width: 360px; height: 288px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>See the little geyser at the point of the arrow?</p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/55852/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="e-Sue3.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13739" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13739/width/288/height/360" style="; width: 288px; height: 360px"></a></p>

<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>:sigh:</p>
<p>The utility people have arrived and are assessing the situation. I bet they're going to have to shut the water off. And I haven't showered yet. :snarl: </p>

I'll have to go back and find it.  My email is broken.  seriously.  Something happened and I've been getting an average of 180 spam emails in my inbox every day.  I think I may need to dump it and start again.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It looks as though this new and improved kick is just fine with my work computer...uh-oh.</p>

<p>I did wake up early yesterday a.m. at my sister's house to a sound generated by my 6 y/o niece that is not conducive to BigG's happiness.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title="">  It was not really fun to listen to on my end either, but didn't seem to bother her too much.<br>

Not to be confused with Oregon State travels, since I do believe we are bypassing Corvallis.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" title="">  (Love the dancing pineapple!)</p>

I did. And now my legs are all razor burned and itchy.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif" title=""></p>

<p>The inspector van is gone and nothing is happening right now. Except there are paint marks all over the street.</p>
