I think my brain may be a little bit fried. There has been no air conditioning in my office this week and the temperature was in the high 90s today. We can't open any windows and the nearly floor to ceiling glass just serves to add to the sauna effect when the sun shines.
At least that is the excuse I am using for this post of random thoughts.
When I went to school and when my kids went to school the list of school supplies included things like paper, pencils, spiral notebooks, folders, 3-ring binders, and usually a box of Kleenex. This year I've read about kids being required to bring things like computer paper, dry erase markers, Clorox wipes, liquid soap, sandwich bags and toilet paper. Yes, toilet paper. I know that schools need to conserve funds for teacher salaries, but toilet paper? What kid can't wait to show up for the first day of school toting a warehouse size package of toilet paper?
I hate it when I leave a comment on someones blog and immediately see that I have made a glaring typo. Two college buddies, Benjamin Herson and Jeff Dick apparently hate typos even more than I do. They set out on a trek across America with the purpose of finding and correcting typos, misspellings and grammatical errors on signs along the way. When they found a typo they would stop the car and try to find the person to talk to about correcting it. Though they met with some resistance, they were often able to correct the error on the spot with their "typo correction kit". They tell their story in their book The Great Typo Hunt. I say "you go, guys"
If you haven't met Addison, you can click on the logo on the top of my sidebar.
Addison has just begun a particularly difficult two month phase of his three year treatment for Leukemia. They have been told to expect nausea, low immune system, fatigue and possible hospitalizations during this phase which is called Delayed Intensification. Please keep this very brave little boy in your thoughts and prayers.
