So my blog was a casualty of Typepad being attacked over the last several days. After having this place for over nine years and posting at least five days a week for the last several years, it was very strange to not have it there.
Oh well, though, life goes on. There has been plenty of schoolwork to do (I've graded 200+ journals and tests over the last few days) and breaks from grading including a trip to Target for shampoo. Somehow all these rainbow party supplies jumped in my cart. I figured if my birthday was coming up soon, I better be prepared...or at least that's the excuse I came up with when I bought it.
