Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

It seems like the days have been flying by at lightening speed lately. I have to admit, I love this time of year, but it really sneaks up on you. It's quite possible to get overwhelmed driving home in the dark at 6:00, but there are a few things I can count on to keep my head above water.

The perfect bubble bath. Seriously. It has total healing powers. Calm One Calm All is completely fabulous. It has a not too flowery/not too fruity scent and the bubbles last till you reach the prune-y stage.


I have a serious craving for the shortbread chocolatey goodness of Milano cookies. I can't keep them in my house because I'll eat the whole bag. They are the perfect amount of sweet and bitter. Deliciousness.


My new palm centro. It's hot pink. It's got a facebook application. It's my new bff.

I've learned that middle schoolers will talk simply to fill the silence. I just have to make sure there's never silence. Pandora Radio lets me create my own radio station and prevents random conversations about people getting poked in the eye. I have a station for just about every situation (tests, independent work, group work, study hall, fire drill).  src=

Thanks for stopping by today...ahhh, so you teach middle school, eh? What subject? Do you get the look of pity too when you tell people what you do? ;) (Can you tell I'm speaking from experience?) Glad to meet you! Loved your list of faves!

Oh excellent post! I think I'm going to look for that bubble bath for my daughter and daughter-in-law for Christmas this year. As a family we've decided to scale WAY back and this fits the bill perfectly. Thanks much!
