A list

Daffodils in my free pile vase.  Estate sale dude was not kidding.  Sadly, the light in the dining room has bothered me ever since Goobie smashed the floor lamp.

Last night in our pre-school parents meeting I was joking with some other moms about not feeling on top of our game.  Today was a case in point.  One mistake from Monday: spacing my office hours and not making it to campus in time to meet with the students who’d shown up to talk with me.  To compensate I announced I would have a 10:30 -11:30 office hours today.  What did I do today: spaced the office hour.  I’ll spare you my excuse.  Suffice it to say I suck.

Improvement: I’ve been developing a list of improvements I want to make in my head.  But today I will write them down formally.
