Here's what's up: I'm doing another alphabet set.  This is my cure for writer's block.

A is for ALONE

In my life with my jobs - as teacher of middle schoolers and mom of elementary schoolers - I am almost never alone.  I'm talking to people and being with people almost 100% of the time.  Usually this is great.  I'm an extreme extrovert, I process information verbally, and I get energy from others.


I am never, ever alone.  Sometimes you just want to take a deep breath and not speak or listen.  Sometimes, you just want to like, BE ALONE.  That's why I'm so happy at this very moment.  For the first time since I can remember, I'm alone in my house with only Skip, my 12-pound dog.  I have big plans for these couple of hours.  I'm watching a tv show, and then I'm taking a shower, and then I'm doing some school work.  May not sound like much, but it's actually a whole stinkin lot.

I'm supes grateful to Dan's parents, Dobby and Doc, for making it happen.  They are AWESOME.
