I couldn't figure out why Hoodles was unhappy about the whole sunny window scenario. The heating pad had ended its lifespan. No Magic Bag or hot water bottle was a worthy substitute. Perfect. Fan-bloody-tastic as a matter of fact!
I did a special exemplar for my more advanced student specific to a project she's working on. Then I left it on the kitchen table when I went to go teach.
Arriving home completely tuckered, I regrouped and tried to encourage Houdini into bathroom behaviours. Nope. Oh, and the whole banned from swimming in the tub is not going well. I couldn't warm her up in the bath, either. She's convinced I've taken complete leave of my senses. Which may in fact be true.
Out to the bus stop again, in search of new heating pad. No heating pads at the mall with auto shutoff. So I bought the cheapest one they had, and headed home. This means more shopping in the near future. Ugh. Still time to get to the pool, or so I thought. Right. Ten minute time point, then a detour.
Off the bus at 7:15, swim started at 7:30, and I still hadn't eaten. Nor could I wrap my head around cooking. Phooey!!! Stopped at the Chinese restaurant on the corner for a chicken and broccoli dish, and wandered home. Needless to say, no swim for this chick. Supper for Houdini, a dash of Heroes, then bed.
For some reason I'm convinced today's got to be better ... in the meantime I'm still on the AZ souvenir production binge, so I bring you these blue topaz, Sleeping Beauty turquoise, freshwater pearl dangles. I hope I haven't shown them to you already!
