A diorama!

The Peperkorn family is coming by tonight, but I will probably be too tired to make a good post, so we’ll save that for another day. Let me tell you about yet another story where I forgot to take a ‘before’ photo.

Our classrooms have windows that look onto the hallway. Several of our teachers put sweet little displays on the window ledges for their classroom, like in the banner photo. The problem is that from the hallway, we’re all looking at Hobby Lobby clearance stickers.

I had an idea.

I did it.

Pour on water. Pour on water.

I slept in this morning and didn’t go to church. (Shhhhh….my stomach still felt funny.) I only had one cup of coffee, a bunch of yogurt (go, bacteria!) and some Tums. I piddled around and did a little more cleaning. Around noon, Lloyd sent me a text – he’s in Texas, by the way. Heh. […]

Cleaning, shopping, sleeping

The Peperkorns are going to be here Monday evening, so if you are in Seward, come over Monday. I’m at work until 6, but I’ll just order a bunch of pizza. Anyway, I’ve been trying to clean the house so it’s not as embarrassing as I normally leave it. I took a good stab at […]

Tired

We worked on the stuff tonight and then I cleaned some in the house, which involves a hilariously disgusting story, but I’m too tired to tell it. Maybe tomorrow. Here’s a fan-made video of Billy Joel’s ‘We didn’t start the fire’. It’s pretty good. (There are lots of historical references.)

I think I can talk about this now. Remember when the Marxhausen family donated the contents of the studio for a yard sale last year? Well, they have since donated a bunch of actual art for us to sell to raise funds for the CDC. Over the past several months, Lloyd has put that big […]
