1/11/11

I'm pretty drowsy for blogging right now (crummy sleep last night), but all of those "1s" on today's date were just too appealing to pass up.  We also had a series of ones on New Year's Day (1/1/11), and we'll have two more in November: 11/1/11, and 11/11/11.  You know your life is sad when you're excited about repetitive numbers.  But it does remind me of the time my car reached 77,777 miles and the temperature happened to be exactly 77 degrees (captured on camera), for a total of seven sevens.  Even though it was a simple coincidence, at that time, seeing all of those sevens in a row actually made me tingle a little.  Should've bought a lotto ticket.

But enough about tingle-inducing numbers.  I started back to work yesterday, which I thought was going to be rough after having three weeks off, but it actually felt great to slide back into my normal routine. I really missed my students this time.  They seemed so excited to see me yesterday, which made it really difficult to pine for break.  The only downfall is I'm still trying to coerce my stubborn brain into a healthy sleeping schedule, rather than the swing shift it wants to be on right now.  After work yesterday, we went to our small group meeting, which was at Becky's and Steve's house.  They moved recently, and I really love their new house.  It's very open and inviting.  Becky made the most delicious chicken tacos I've ever eaten.  I don't know what she did to that chicken, but my stomach growls in longing just thinking about it.

I sketched out another drawing and am so excited to plaster on some paint!  Unfortunately I don't think I will have time to paint it until this weekend.  Compared to the last painting, this one is much more complex and detailed and complicated and difficult and advanced....Okay, it's another stupid tree.  But still...
