About Me

I'm a writer and library worker who wears many hats. I believe a good book and a good piece of chocolate are the keys to a happy life.

Freeze Tag

Once upon a time in a reality far, far, away I was tagged by a few friends to complete special blogs. With my quest assigned, the evil Procrastinator launched his counter-attack. In the past month and a half I have been assaulted by a family crisis, an anniversary vacation and his most effective servant: the destructive deadline of doom. I completed the most recent Sharing Through Primary Songs for 2008 in record time. From start to finish I spent a total of three weeks breathing, eating and sleeping primary curriculum. My children think I've turned into the wicked witch of the west and swear I can call forth an evil band of flying monkeys at the mere mention of "What's for dinner?" I have also been known to burn holes straight through them with my laser beam eyes at comments such as "You're still not done? How hard can it possibly be?"

Needless to say my triumph came at a cost. The color of my kitchen floor changed from white to dingy grey (what was I thinking having a white floor anyway?). My hair saw this as a new fad and added a whole new batch of grey strands. My waistline expanded by 7 pounds all attributed to the 7 pounds of peanut butter M&M's I ate my way through while staring at my computer screen.

I have now returned to my regularly scheduled reality. Yes, that includes this blog. In the next few weeks I will be catching up on answering all the interesting tag blogs my friends have requested of me. I won't pass the tag along however, since I've had them in a holding pattern for a month most everyone I know has already had their turn. By all means if something catches your eye and you haven't played yet- have at it!
