morning drama...

..as some of you know, i rarely remember dreams--this morning i had the tail end, at least, of a dream (nay, nightmare :) etched into my waking mind--i found myself back in the classroom again, but it wasn't an art room; the kids, around middle school age, were in a regular classroom (maybe i was substituting for another teacher? i dunno) with hats and coats on, school bags packed and sitting in rows at their desks, ready to leave for the day, i guess--all of a sudden they got up and began to move around, talking and playing grabass games and being a general disturbance, when they were supposed to be sitting quietly, awaiting dismissal--at this point, i yelled out to them, "put your things down and sit!!"--apparently i yelled loudly enough for the sound to rise above their din and they again returned to their seats.....but it was also loud enough to wake me (and, i gather, from the report, anyone else who might have been sleeping in the house :)--fortunately, peanut the wonder dog, was the only other one sleeping and since she was already lying down, she must have figured the command to be either, superfluous, or not applying to her--the kids did, however, dutifully return to their seats--i might add, i have been out of the classroom over 5 years...

    Not a lot of excitement going on in my life. The trip East a couple of weeks ago was the last adventure. Still get to ride the bike in this enjoyable…
