Lazy February

It’s been a slow month for my personal life, so my confessions this month are pretty mundane.

1. The only reason I invite my brother and his wife over for diner every week is so I can spend three hours playing with my nephew.

2. Even though I’m single (and proud of it) I had the most amazing Valentine’s Day because I had forty pintsized Valentines who thought my multicolored Jell-O cookies were the coolest thing ever.

3. I learned the hard way that when square-dancing with partners below 4 feet tall it’s a good idea to wear kneepads because you’re going to end up dancing on your knees.

4. After taking individually decorated chocolate cupcakes to a staff potluck I was stopped in the hallway by another teacher who wanted to know if I was the one who’d made the decadent cupcakes. I had all of 20 seconds to be pleased and flatted before my students, who’d been lined up against the wall listening, indignantly wanted to know why I hadn’t made them cupcakes.

5. After four amazing months of 10:00 A.M. sunrises and 4:00 P.M. sunsets Alaska is finally gaining daylight, and it sucks. I’d forgotten how much of a pain it is having to cover up my skin every time I step out of the house.

Looking back on my month I have the sudden urge to take up hang gliding in March just so I’ll have more interesting things to confess in April.

  1. Ha ha ha, when it comes to sunlight, you and I are complete opposites :). And your Valentines sound very, very cute.

  2. I'm photosensitive so I kind of have to be the opposite of most people. If not I get burned, bad.
