1. Last night, I asked Shoo to get out of the bath and dry off. He got out, walked into my bedroom, and rolled around on my bed until he was dry. Perhaps I should have specified that he dry off with a towel.
2. On Friday, I get to meet Susan Meddaugh, the author behind the PBS KIDS program Martha Speaks, about a dog who ate alphabet soup and gains the ability to talk. I’m pretty excited because a) I get to talk with other grown ups without constant interruptions and b) the geeky librarian in me can’t wait to meet an author.
3. Today is going to be insane. I want to run
10 miles four Vibram miles and I have a couple of writing deadlines. Then, when I pick up Jones, I need to help with set-up for the book fair, take Jones to soccer practice, and then he has cub scouts. I have so much going on that I’m meeting myself coming and going. And last night I volunteered to be the room mom for Jones’ class. Anyone want to spend some time with me, teaching me how to say the word “no”?
