Caffeinated Randomness: Fabulously busy!

I'm not sure where to begin. I've been busy. FABULOUSLY BUSY! It's the good busy. It's the kind of busy when I don't sit down until Friday afternoon -- wait, I might go snowshoeing tonight. Well, the kind of busy when I don't sit down until Saturday -- wait, I'm going skiing. Well, the kind of busy when I don't sit down until Sunday afternoon -- wait, the Superbowl and a 5-7 page graduate paper due Monday. Well, you get the idea (and at least I have to sit still to write the grad paper and watch the Super Bowl).

Sometimes this kind of busy wears me out, but this week, I have loved it. My parents have been in town, so I have been commuting to and from Vail every evening and morning and I LOVE IT. The 30 mile commute is like therapy for me.

How much I love the drive reminds me of a Story People print, I've always liked, which says, "I've always liked the time before dawn because there's no one around to remind me who I'm supposed to be. So it's easier to remember who I am."

In other randomness from this week -- um, I'm frustrated with a few parents. That will probably pass. Not my parents, but some preschool parents.

I have one new teacher in the preschool - and two other teachers out this week. One is on vacation and the other is sick. To say this week has been hectic would not begin to cover how I feel about it.

The students seem to be fairing well, and that's all that is important.

I watched the movie ALWAYS last night with my parents. Has anyone seen it? My mom loves the movie -- I think she loves that the woman is always teasing the man and begging for him to tell her that he loves her, "Tell me! Tell me! Tell me! Tell me! Tell me!"

I did not really like the movie. It was ... it was... it had its good qualities, and maybe I could have liked it in a different phase of life... but last night, I didn't like it.

It's about a few men who are fire-pilots. The men who fly the planes who drop water/paint/mud/whatever-it-is over forest fires. It was intense at parts and definitely believed in love at first sight. The verdict is still out for me on that one... actually I'm pretty sure the verdict is in... I don't buy it. But this movie believed it.

I hope you all have a great weekend complete with randomness and awesomeness!

  1. I think it all depends on your personality - I actually fell pretty hard for my husband the day I first saw him, so I am believer! But I also believe it's real because that is exactly how God feels about us - He fell head over heels the moment He saw us...even before. I love that!

    You're weekend sounds fun (well, except for the paper part)! Enjoy!!

  2. I'll have to check out that movie ... it sound like one I'd enjoy! :) I'd have to agree with Andrea on the love ... I knew the moment I saw John smile. : )

    Good luck on your paper!!!

  3. Paper? Are you getting another degree? You go girl! Ski one for me! Love Emily

  4. Oh dear you are quite busy are you...but at least some of it is a fun busy :)

    I am not sure about the love at first sight...I think for some people it happens and for others it's a slow progression. We are all different.

    I love Andrea's take on it though!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I used to love that movie. Now, I can tolerate it. I do know that the stuff that is dropped from the planes is called slurry. I am a wealth of useless info.

    I love busy weeks, it makes them pass quicker. Have a happy and slower weekend!
