For those of you who’ve been around here for a while, you know there have been several versions of the coffee share, and then it died out…
But I’m very glad to say that it is back! Apparently, ElectricAlli has decided to take over the role of hosting the coffee share, and this will be my first post reconnecting with the link up.
Grab a cup and cozy up! Here’s the latest in my life: the last week in teaching summer school, a mini Boy Update, news about Camp NaNoWriMo, and my successes/struggles with the Bullet Journal.

Good afternoon! I’m sorry I’m starting my Weekly rewind late. You may have noticed from the title that #NaNoWriMo has begun, and that has altered all my routines lately…

I sometimes go to IHOP to write. This sounds counterproductive due to the noise level and being interrupted by waitstaff, but in reality, it’s very comfortable. When I was in college, IHOP became a place of comfort for me. There would be whole groups of us that would gather there late in the evenings (and often into the morning) playing the question game, actually interacting, and being 100% genuine. There wasn’t a lot of judgment at that IHOP. More likely, it was because the atmosphere of a college town where there are competing colleges with competing theological ideologies allowed for an ambiance of honest communication to truly develop.
It was a special time in my life and the only time (prior to knowing about my ASD) that I felt totally comfortable being myself.

This week, if we were talking over coffee, I’d have to have you meet me in my room, and bring me a hot cocoa while I’m hiding, wrapped up like a burrito in bed. The more I see of how the election results have changed this country, the less I want to be a part of it.
Or a part of the human race at all, actually!

This weekend, if we were talking over coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve moved again. Into a temporary place, but it was out of necessity.
The other day I shared a little snippet of what’s been going on in the house in which I was staying. Mostly I shared about the rudeness of the daughter and the lack of gas meaning no hot water and no cooking, etc. It’s been an ever increasingly bad situation since they went on their trip to Florida, which is when I realized that they were neglecting both the dog and the cat, in ways which could be only described as abuse of a pet.

Well. I survived. I think that’s about all I can say about Inservice today.
Which is obviously a lie as I’m about to go into complete detail about what happened and why it was such an exhausting experience. And believe me, I am extremely exhausted!

If we were talking over coffee today, my eyes would probably be red and bloodshot from crying…
This is the last Sunday before Inservice begins. If you’re looking at that word and not sure what it means, you must not be a teacher. Or it’s an outdated word and I’m aging myself. Whatever. The point is, my summer is officially over after today.
