Das Boots. No. Dos Boots.

It’s National Lutheran Schools Week, and we’ve had various dress-up days this week. Red & White / Pajama Day / Crazy Hair and Socks / Mix, Match and Clash (hence my two boots) and tomorrow – worst of all – Team Sports Day.

There is one sports-related item of clothing in this house: An ancient Cardinals t-shirt. I wear it every single time we do sports stuff, so people ask me if I am a die-hard fan.

I am not.

*sigh* Why can’t we have Cat Hair Encrusted Black Clothes Day?

    I have a huge list of dress-up day ideas that I gathered from the internet. I always bring it out when NLSW is being planned so I can offer an alternative to sports shirt day and others like it. There are so many fun ideas, it seems a shame to waste a dress-up day on something like sports shirts.

    First, LOVE the title!! Second, you are stylin’ with your boots!!! They are all the rage now.

    I tried to get a pair last weekend so I could be ‘up with the fashion’ too. But when I tried them on, Ugh….they made my legs too hot. I could never wear such things inside all day. :( Dang.

Sundown Disco

I already told you that my class is studying space, and this is just such a fine time to be alive, because there is so much technology out there to help us learn. Today I fired up my ‘Look at the Sky and Identify Stuff’ app – I forget what it’s called – so I […]

Super Spaceman

I left my iPad at school, dang it, and I’m too tired to go back for it. Instead, I will share with you some videos from Colonel Chris Hadfield from his time on the International Space Station. My kids are studying space right now, and he made some really wonderful videos during his time in […]

Better Butter… wait, I already used that title.

A couple of weeks ago, the ‘lid’ to my ‘new’ butter system slipped out of my hand and chipped. Surprise, surprise. What did I expect from buttery glass? I spent a good long time thinking about how to replace it. At various stores, I looked at containers for holding pencils, toothbrushes, sewing goods, fishing tackle […]

Thanks, Target!

The older I get, the more college students come through the doors of the CDC. Be they aides, observers, student teachers, whatever – they just get younger and younger, wearing cuter and cuter clothes. I, on the other hand, am old don’t really give a rip about what I’m wearing. Usually that works out just […]

Bookstores (part 3)

I was looking around in Barnes and Noble lately and the Science Fiction / Fantasy section is looking a little sad. Spacewise, it was alright. It took up a roughly 30 foot corridor with books on both sides, but there were a few things that were a little off… The new book section took up […]
