1. Duchezz was installed as Matron of Winfield Chapter #418, Order of the Eastern Star of the State of New York last night. Her Patron, who is a friend of ours, and was a friend of Morguhn's, disappeared just as he was to be installed, and reappeared dressed as a knight, complete with crested helm, coif, halbrek, chausses, mantle, and ceremonial sword (he borrowed them from his Scotish Rite [the Shriners] temple), in order to "Make Right Worthy Loie feel more at home." It was a wonderful, touching, funny gesture, especially since the day before he fell Morguhn had decided he would join our Chapter so he could be Patron with her. The mantle was even green.

2. I got my report (I'm the chapter historian) written and delivered. Four pages, single spaced, and no one ever complains it's too long, so I guess I must be doing something right. Of course that meant no school related work got done yesterday between 3 and chapter. And we ran very long, so no work got done when I got home. I either need a longer pipe on my snorkle or to just inhale the damn water and get it over with.

3. Had a conversation of sorts, small one, with someone who has been thoughtless and unkind lately, about that thoughtlessness and unkindness. It is a start, but I am not hopeful. The most tangible result of the conversation was a nightmare that was clearly, directly, connected.

4. I'm fairly convinced I have angered two ladies, one across the continent and one somewhat closer, and I'm not sure exactly what I did or how to fix it. :-(

5. Fairly convinced I am not only suffering from clinical depression but that its shopping buddy paranoia has come along for the trip.

6. Tomorrow comes the great stove adventure. The delivery people "don't coordinate with third parties" and the gas company "would have been happy to coordinate when we called, but we "didn't give us a time range then." Um, because ... oh, never mind. *Sigh*

7. I would really, really, really like to remember what fun is--fun without interpersonal dramah undertones, awkward revelations, guilt about squandered time....Maybe in December. I can hope.

8. By the way--you all have saved my sanity for the last 14 months. Thank you.

Classes taught.
Office hours held.
Class prep done.
Homeward bound.

Where there will be kitties, puppies,

and a *friggin'* stack of papers to grade.
Oh, well. At least I can do it sitting on the bed with the TV as background noise.

(P.S.--Duchezz had PT yesterday, more on Friday. So far so good except the incredibly early time for the appointments. Friday's is at 7 AM, and we live 40 minutes from the place.)

Lazy Sunday

Duchezz and pugs slept in until nearly 1 PM today. Much needed, so I made sure they were undisturbed. We went into town to see Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (which may go down as the most nonsensical title evah). Missed the bit that the theatre had the 3D version, so was surprised by both the price and being handed two pair of "Sealed for Your Protection" 3D glasses. Final verdict--better than The Meltdown but still not as good as the first Ice Age. Later this week I'll watch the team beat up on COBRA. Yup. Guilty pleasure. Sue me.

Came home, made dinner (tilapia [lightly breaded and fried], lemon spinach couscous, and snap peas [in the pod]).

Now it's time to prep for my 9 AM meeting as Duchezz tries not to worry about what sort of mess she's going to walk into on her first day as supervisor. For those of you who don't know what she does, as of Monday she'll be overseeing this, and supervising a staff of 4 registrars and some clerical staff:


The Neighborhood Center's DAY CARE REGISTRATION PROGRAM operates out of our 612 Elizabeth Street, Utica location and certifies adults in Oneida County to provide care to small groups of children in their private homes.

* The program offers informational meetings, technical assistance, home inspections and certification renewals.
* Inspections to ensure compliance with New York State regulations are conducted both randomly and upon receipt of a complaint.
* Currently, this program serves over 150 homes in Oneida County
* We provide all required training and monitor all aspects of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Child and Adult Care Food Program [CACFP].
In other news, the Pennsic laundry was started last night. Load 3 of 3,219 in the front loader as we speak.
