5:30 PM
I decided to change the title of my blog... "And Miles to Go Before I Sleep" sounded a bit complaintive (like, whine whine, I have so much work to do, whine whine), but poetic all the same... I mean, it is Frost anyways. Well I am working on finding information on Laura Ingalls Wilder for Living History Day on Friday. I pretty much just decided to do it once I thought of her as a person I could be (except costuming may be a problem... hmmm), especially since I read all the books (and I packed the stupid things up so I can't bring them as props! Urrrgh) and her bios and other books, etc. and so I'm getting pics off google to print off and say, "Oh this is my family, these are my parents, Charles and Caroline, and my sisters, Mary, Carrie, and Grace, and my husband Almanzo, and our daughter Rose..." etc. etc. etc. So anyways, today was okay... although it started off with me getting up and groaning to myself, "I do NOT want to get out of this comfortable, warm bed that I have been able to stay in for the past 3 or 4 weeks and go to the cold, cruel school where people force you to work and kids are always bumping into you and cussing." But I went anyways and just was there... tried to relax, tried to be a non-perfectionist (my mother doesn't want me to say that word, so then maybe my perfectionism- oops- will lessen...okaaay), hey, at least I came for 6 periods. Yes, 6 periods, and then Mom picked me up during French. So I went home... and made a snack, then went back to my room to listen to "Newsies" and read "Foxtrot" in bed... and then I slept for about an hour and 1/2 or so. I got up at 4:40 and did French and now this. This weekend is the Youth coffee house so tonight at supper, me, Molls, and Megs are going to try and figure out a song to sing. Yaaawn. Farewell gentle readers (thank you Hessie Mayhew! oops, I mean Jan Karon ;-D), enjoy life... --clairey who has miles to go before she sleeps, i suppose
