So it's been a while..

Yeah, well. I'm all aflutter with the beginning of a new school year, buried in meetings and paperwork and trying to figure out how to put too many desks in a too-small room (with not enough air conditioning).

So for your amusement while you wait for me to come up with an ACTUAL blog post, here's a meme. Stolen from Kris, who got it from someone else, who probably got it from someone else, and so on, and so on. (How old am I, that I reference that shampoo commercial? Geez)

  1. I read your raspberry comment on another blog and I laughed so hard I had to see who you were! We must be soul mates because my wish list is almost identical to yours!

    Good luck with the new school year.

    Love, another diabetic mom,

    We pancreases (pancreai? LOL) have to stick together.
