Clearly I’ve been a horrible blogger this week. Sorry about that. I have a bunch of posts in the works, but it’s just been that kind of week, ya know? Way too many papers to grade. Blah! Next week I hope to tell you all about my sister’s visit, share some home upgrades, and I will even give you a book rec and a new recipe. But until then you get my Thursday evening ramblings…
I ate dinner alone tonight. Micah left to play basketball before I could get (a very late) dinner on the table. And I would like to inform you that the asparagus was my FAVORITE part of the meal. I ate almost all the veggies, and I am supposed to leave Micah leftovers. Oops. Anyway this is a miracle, because I used to hate vegetables. But Micah started working on getting me to like them about two years ago, so that vegetables could be a part of his diet after he got married. Smart guy. Anyway, I discovered the BEST way to cook green veggies like broccoli and aspargus and I will have to share it with you next week too.
It’s kind of nice having the house to myself for a few hours. However, I should probably be cleaning my bathroom and folding laundry instead of blogging. Except that I should be blogging too, since I am supposed to be participating in my online community for 20 hours a week. Utter fail on that this week. However, in mommy blogging news, I met with the chair of my department about switching my concentration from lit to rhet/comp. Nothing is finalized yet, but it’s in the works. I have another meeting tomorrow. Also, I submitted an abstract to present my yet-to-be-written mommy blog paper at a conference in Seattle next fall. I have never written an abstract for a paper before and I had NO idea what I was doing, so it might be a little too abstract… oh well.
Okay, the bottle of windex is beckoning me. I must go. I am very excited for my friend Ashley over at One in the SAHM to visit Phoenix this week. Also, one of my very bests, Allison, will be arriving from Texas next Friday. Woohoo! Hallelujah for living in the most pleasant winter climate on the planet so lots of people want to visit us!
P.S. I am currently listening to my “Purchased” list on i-tunes. Bascially, that means I am listening to every song I have purchased over the past 5-6 years. It’s pretty random and funny (and a little embarrassing to think I bought some of these song). But it’s fun. I suggest it next time you need some background music around the house.
