Snow days. And I cannot believe I'm saying this after a full week home. My husband's schedule was also impacted by the snow and we've all had a lot of
A Canadian friend loaned me Fifth Business by Robertson Davies at least a year ago and asked me to read it. I recently re-organized my bookshelves and am tackling it now. So far so good.

We are watching the US version of The Office. I know. Chuckle quietly to yourself. That is so 2005. I get it. We lived in Europe when the original British version of the Office came on-- we watched and loved that series, so we weren't really motivated to watch the US version.

The differences are interesting-- of course the US version is a lot longer than the 2 "season" Brit series. The lead character is much less repellent in the US version. It's super funny and we're loving it. Now if only someone would remake Extras.
Changes I want to make on my MS... always thinking about that. :0) Now that school is beginning again maybe I can squeeze in some time to work on them.
A cool project I'm working on with my students, those revisions I'm dying to make, three research articles I need to put the finishing touches on and then... a well-earned Spring Break. :0)
I've been watching videos with the boys on YouTube. They are big fans of Gotye, One Direction, Taylor Swift, and Ke$ha.
For Spring. I feel like the whole region has paid their dues this fall and winter. Power Outages. Hurricanes. An Earthquake. A Blizzard. We've been good. We dealt with 4 1/2 foot snow drifts. Now bring on the buds and shoots of spring.
Making me happy
Thank goodness for Legos, lego tables, and these guys.
