#7QT: In Which my life consists of children, coffee, and baseball

I teach children. Not my children, but other people’s children… who I occasionally refer to as “my kids” in the educational setting. It’s exhausting some days.

Other days, it’s awesome (and still exhausting). I had the experience of a 5th grade student explaining to me how a Trojan Horse virus works based on the historical concept of the Trojan Horse. Thank you, BrainPop, for helping us expand our understanding of digital citizenship!

But also, it’s exhausting some days.

I drink coffee. Copious amounts of coffee. Did you even read the name of my blog? Yeah. Coffee.

I found a most excellent email in my inbox today – Panera will be giving me a free cup of coffee every single day in the month of May. Just ’cause. That’s happy inducing.

Weather. Weather has happened. Is happening. I had to kick the air on because it was 83* in here when I got home, and I just can’t handle that. Not to mention, my wicked sunburn from last weekend is still red and now approaching the itchy phase, though I’m no longer radiating free heat. Wheeee!

Road-tripping this weekend, because I felt like it. I want to see brother, sister-in-law, and the kiddos. There might be a new kiddo by the time I get there Saturday… so if you’d care to send up some prayers for my sis-in-law’s impending labor, that would be awesome. The boy (er, fiance) is baby #3′s godfather, which is cool. We’re all just very excited to meet baby #3 … and I’m happy to help clean a house or make some dinner or play with other children to distract from it as well. :)

It’s baseball season. Finally. YAY. Orioles. I’m curled up on the futon with some cheesy bread, watching the first game of a doubleheader. We’re winning. That’s exciting, and also feels rare so far this year. but YAY baseball. Oh yeah… the sunburn was from the Tides game I went to on Sunday. (Yes, I went to a baseball game by myself. I prefer to watch baseball with the best company possible. SWIDT?)

The giveaway at the Tides game was a poster of Henry Urrutia. Look closely - he then autographed it for me, for free! Being super early to a game has its benefits.

How to get a sunburn in April in two easy steps:

1. Wear short sleeved t-shirt and bermuda shorts.

2. Go to the ballpark on a day like this, arriving 1 hour early and not leaving until the last pitch is thrown.

The Tides play at Harbor Park, on the river in Norfolk.

I know that Jen has a new book out. I haven’t read it…nor have I bought it (yet). I plan to! That said, all my reading lately has consisted of YA books that I’ve picked from my middle school library’s collection. Since I was in charge of ordering all our middle school books, and I chose most of them based on reviews/etc., I figured I better take a look at them. So far, so good. So what are you reading? And if you’ve already snagged a copy of Something Other Than God… it’s great, right? I’m predicting. It’s a skill we work on while reading in my library. ;)
