Now you see me, now you don't

This entry is being written along side a cup of coffee and a dwindling slice of toast with peanut butter. In between bites of bread and swigs of coffee I'm sifting through email, looking for anything that I need to answer immediately. An email to confirm an Indian lunch on Monday qualifies.
My first two classes canceled this morning so I've got a few extra minutes to sift through the classwork that the girls brought home from school. Emily recently did a group presentation on the nervous system and got an A+ for her efforts. It was noted on her Rubric that she needed to give her partners a chance to talk. Abby brought home another graded spelling test. Pick, park, tack, back, sack, sick, big, in, hold, and so were all spelled correctly. So were kick, and, will, sit, and have.
The timer just went off on the stove. Jim is cooking rice for the leftover Chana Masala that I brought home from work last night. ("That's so freakin' good" he tells me later.) Letting him have my leftover Indian food is my penance for getting it in the first place. Who can afford to buy dinner out these days?
Crap! I just looked at the clock. I need to leave for my only class in about thirty minutes, then I'll run home and get ready to blast out for work. The good news is that (at this time anyway) I'll have the whole weekend off. Just enough time to get my house clean before some contractors show up to give us estimates on how much it will cost to replace or repair our roof.
Shoot me.

Good luck with the roof repairs. I hope it is not going to be too costly...

I thought Murillo's was going to be one of those awesome Mexican shacks with a drive-thru...I almost never have time for fine dining, so I may never go there... :(

Hi Elizabeth,

Long time, no see. I had fun reading back the last 3 blogs or so. Belated congrats on the job promotion you accepted. And here I thought you didn't like it there. OK, don't answer that. A BlackBerry, huh? Way kewl. I've been thinking of switching from the Palm Treo to BlackBerry. I'm waiting for the BlackBerry Storm to be released soon to see if I will indeed get a new phone or not. I don't really need a new one, but a new toy is always fun :-) How much was the roof estimate? I just got one. Seven G's I think it was. Only looked at it quickly and put the proposal in a file for next year. Mine needs the existing shingles removed because its a 2nd layer on there now, and some chimney repair work.

Some days it's like the merry-to-round doesn't stop. Speaking of eating out. . . I could sure go for some enchiladas.
