alatefeline: Painting of a cat asleep on a book. (Default)
This is a very short post to let you know that I am still here, aka alive, and also back here, aka in Oregon. A family trip happened. And a memorial. There were long plane flights and lots of tears and also good things.

Then I had my first day back at work for the school year, which should have been my third day except I missed two Mandatory! Training! Days! because of family thing and am trying to make up that but at least the people at my building are fairly supportive or at least saying the right things. And I got through that first day somehow and it was not entirely awful.

Also, kids are awesome and they are even more awesome when they have popsicles and small mechanized orca toys, and I’m really grateful we have another day-ish of set up before they arrive en masse, instead of trickling in to tag along with parents trying to swap classes and/or eat principal’s playground popsicles for maybe half an hour.

This isn’t actually a short post, now is it… And it has run-on sentences. And. Fragments. Oh well.

I was going to do a pros and cons and coping strategies activated list-post but I think I’m going to stare blankly at webcomics for a bit and then maybe sleep early and/or do one o the things I meant to do before falling asleep.

I mentioned kids are awesome yeah?

Oh, yeah, and a great thing from the trip: my three-going-on four honorary cousin showing off his immense talent at dancing in circles, to the music of his toy keyboard’s preprogrammed beats plus all the adults in the room clapping. Punctuated by knocking over stacks of wooden blocks lined up like dominos on the coffee table.

And another: my five-going-on-older cousin building a blanket fort with me and my sib. And getting to play with magnetic toy trains with him.

(Like I did with my uncle, once. Thank you, dear one.)
