1. What was the most challenging thing about yesterday?
~ Getting Toby to bed! I think he's trying to change his bedtime to around 8 or 9 instead of 7, and that's fine, but the result has been him falling asleep around 7 because he routinely gets really sleepy around then, sleeping for about half an hour, getting cranky around his new bedtime, and fighting sleep for an hour (i.e. waking up and needing comforting several times and/or fussing in his crib for several minutes with only a minute or so break in between). The good news is that he's been sleeping without waking until morning once he goes to sleep.

2. Today is Elephant Appreciation Day. What is the coolest thing about elephants?
~ Their feet. It's amazing to me how tough yet sensitive they are. It makes sense that even the littlest problem can quickly become a big problem when you're supporting that much weight, but it's still intriguing to me. And I think it's cool that they can actually tread very lightly. (The expression "sounds like a herd of elephants" really isn't applicable unless they're stampeding.)

3. What's on the agenda for today?
~ Finishing laundry and grocery shopping. Woo hoo.

1. What was the most challenging thing about yesterday?

Working with my kiddos after only getting like 4 hours of sleep, then drinking a triple shot mocha, which made my belly hurt (because my tummy was empty, I ate breakfast just a lot ealier then when I had coffee) then feeling feverish and achey.

2. Today is Elephant Appreciation Day. What is the coolest thing about elephants?

Um...maybe how fast they can run for being such HUGE animals. I mean they top out at 25 mph (when scared)

3. What's on the agenda for today?

Work, work , work...

Trying to have patience. I still haven't heard about my schedule, but I have begun to prep for the class. I'll make the best of the situation.

I think it's pretty cool that they are a matriarchal "society"!

Finish up assembling the invites. More finding aid work. Laundry, and packing.

1. What was the most challenging thing about yesterday? RK moved in with me on Friday since he's now out the of military and needs a place to stay for the next 6 weeks until he goes to Iraq as a civilian contractor. It's been weird to have everything rearranged...especially when i'm not home to witness the transformation in action. It was challenging to open my medicine cabinet and not being able to find my toothbrush in my normal spot.



2. Today is Elephant Appreciation Day. What is the coolest thing about elephants? That they are the only mammal that can't jump! They are so big, but i think of them as incredibly graceful. It's so cute that they can't do something that even a whale can do.



3. What's on the agenda for today? Work, riding, and hopefully a game of banagrams (i just got it yesterday since i'm a fan of scrabble). :)

My biggest challenge these past few weeks has been my routine change. I've been getting up at 4am and falling asleep around 8pm!!

I love elephants. They are so kind and gentle :)
