Randomness...

Apparently temps are so low where my MIL lives that she can't leave her home overnight because they need to keep the pipes from freezing and bursting -- bummer! There's this strange cold front which is hitting along the western side of the Continental Divide (along the Rocky Mtns) -- of course, it's supposed to be cold here this weekend too, but still about ten degrees higher than they're experiencing. Weather is a funny phenomenon, isn't it?

All my students (excepting one class) are working on research papers this session -- and it's meant a TON of e-mailing back and forth for me. I've spent close to three hours each yesterday and today just dealing with the e-mailed questions, comments, pleas for help, topic suggestions, etc. It's crazy!

The kiddos go back to school tomorrow, and they're not thrilled. None of us are (we love sleeping in), but at the same time, it'll be good to get back to a routine again. I don't go in to help until next week, so I'll have three whole days to myself (what to do, what to do?).

Yoga was wonderful and painful this morning. It's my first class in three weeks, and man-oh-man, my shoulders and upper back are feeling it. The good news is that my hips seem to be in good shape...but oh, my shoulders are so weak!

I love texting -- DH knew that might be an issue when we upgraded our phones, and he was right. :) I may never call anyone again...just saying (don't worry -- no texting and driving!).

One week till DH turns the big 4-5. Since his mom has decided she can't do the surprise party thing, I mentioned it to him (for future reference), and he's NOT interested. He'd like a party somewhere else, but I think the thought of all those people in our own home stresses him out (I know it does me).

Hope it's been a good Tuesday for you -- any random thoughts to share?

We're having a break in the horribly low temperatures, but next week it's supposed to be 13-20 below zero at night. *dies*

I hope you find somewhere nice and low key for your husband's birthday celebration!

Everyone is back to school here, but I still have tons of things going on to chop up my day. Hopefully it all levels out soon--at least my husband's schedule is lighter this semester, which should help!

Enjoy getting back to normal. :)

You must be in the same weather 'stream' as my MIL -- brrr!

Sadly, busy-ness seems to be normal ;)

Chucky Cheese would be a good party destination ... ;o)

LOL :)

I'm not sure DH would like chucky cheese (hehe) -- but he'd probably love Dave & Busters!

The Dave & Busters idea sounds awesome! Fun for the guests and the host ;)

Dave & Busters sounds like fun!

I need to go back and do some yoga. Before birth of son I practiced yoga faithfully for 10 years.

Random thought: I tried some Greek yogurt made with goat's milk. Still not sure what I think of it. I'm allergic to cow's milk so I thought I'd try it.

I keep hearing about Greek yogurt, but I'm not a fan of Greek cheeses (too strong for my palate), so I've avoided it. How strong was it?

It's very strong. There's a side section to mix the fruit in but even that isn't enough to sweeten it.
