I have no idea why I make that face.
It's fall break round these parts. Greg has had work and rehearsals so we have stayed close to home, but I've enjoyed these long lazy autumn days. I thought I would get all sorts of work done- you know, get caught up on the groceries and blog like crazy and clean my whole house top to bottom and read six books. And then somehow the days pass without doing any of that and that is just fine. Yesterday we spent all afternoon carving pumpkins for decorations for Greg's show. Last night was opening night- they are performing Christopher Marlow's "Dr. Faustus"- so we decked out the place with pumpking, cobwebs, the work. There is nothing better than fall, but why is so fleeting?!?
Are you about done reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close? We are discussing it on Thursday so get reading! It's not too late to start! :)
For your weekend entertainment:
+ What I was doing last fall break. Gosh, I was a brat.
+ Words of wisdom from my students- a compilation of hilarious things they say.
+ Mourning over celebrity breakups. Who can make a relationship work nowadays?
+ It's that time of year again- the end of the teaching honeymoon.
+ The best post I've ever seen about dealing with negative criticism. I laughed so hard- this woman is a comic genius.
