Adventures With Tutu

A little walk around the neighborhood, a bunny and a uniquely colored punch-buggy.

Public Accountability: Don't Wanna

Uuuuuggggggh. Tutu's diaper rash is much improved, but she is still not sleeping through the night. Yesterday was hella productive, but now I think I'm paying the price because even after a shower, breakfast and coffee, I'm all blurry-eyed and a I feel a little short-tempered.

Hmph.

Mémé is coming for baby duty this morning at 10:00, so I can crank out something with total focus, probably cleaning the grill, but I foresee much of today's to-do carrying over until tomorrow or Friday. (Tomorrow Tutu and I have a field trip because the buyers' house inspector is coming.)

Tutu slept through Mémé's visit. :-/ So, grandma helped out packing up the non-essentials in the kitchen instead of having Tutu Time. I've gotten most of the rest done today, the mystery bit being "mow" (the lawn) and in my present run-down state that simply ain't gonna happen.

Still, a good day of getting ready to GTFO.

Public Accountability: Take N

My weeks start out strong and then I lose steam. But not this week! Today I have very little steam. The to-do list may look long but there's only one serious project: the attic. And it's not that serious: most of its contents are in boxes already!

Good news/bad news about moving.

Good news: after being back on the market for four days, with only three showings, we are under contract again. W00t!

Bad news: they won't rent us the house until our new construction is finished. We're still headed for an apartment for the summer. The T-# is days until the move. The house 1/3 packed already, so I'm not stressing much, but that will change. :-/

Mother[long string of expletives deleted].

Ahem.

Apparently G+ has seen fit to post a grand total of 0% of my posts from the mobile app today.

>:-(

I am unamused and too tired to repost. TL;DR: long-ass day to end the semester and our buyers' financing fall through, so we are back to square one.

Public Accountability: The Grading Tsunami Draws Nigh

The end of the semester doesn't really mean a break or even a slow-down: it's just a shift in gears from lesson prep to GRADE ALL TEH THINGS.

My to-grade list is so long at the moment that I'll need to draw up a master list to be sure I don't miss anything. It makes me wonder if I shouldn't begin campaigning more for stopping final exams in favor of something more holistic, like a portfolio. :: sigh :: I can dream, can't I?

I can also join the assessment committee next year. :-)

To attenuate end-of-semester stress, check out Tutu: who is now standing (with support). She's always a bright star.

My grading tsunami hasn't hit yet.

Still, I feel the rumbles...

Public Accountability: Out of Runway

Today's list was longer, but I've learned that I can't accomplish more than a double-spaced page, so dismantling and packing shelves will have to wait for tomorrow.

In productive news, breakfast is done and dusted and I will have completed the dishes before my morning walk with Tutu -- a Tutu caught in the act for this morning's pic.

Puic Accountability: Course Prep

The heavy lifting of packing the house is done until we're only a week out, and I have summer classes starting in June 1, so it's time to get those in order.

Baby is up. Breakfast is in both of us; I was even able to finish my coffee while it was still hot. Next up: a walk around the neighborhood with our baby back pack.

Hi!

We have a random piece of furniture that we can't name. Hence, we call it Voldemort.

Day is half done and going well. The walk was nice and scheduling was a headache but worth it. Tutu and I are taking a breather after lunch and then we're headed upstairs for a soak and packing He Who Shall Be Named.

Sometimes, when you do not want something, or want something to occur, any excuse is good enough. Expediency kills (possibilities).

Public Accountability: Grey Tuesday

It's rainy and overcast this morning. The thunder woke me up before my alarm, but thankfully Tutu slept right through it -- until just now, in fact. Her diaper rash is responding to the antibiotics we started yesterday, but I'm sure that it will take a few days of constant attention to clear. Soaks and air time are the rule today.

Packing continues apace. I need to check my master list but I suspect I'm coming towards the end of the "No one will miss it" list and will have to wait a week or two before the essentials are ready.

That's okay, I have two summer courses to prep.

And coffee. I have coffee. Thank goodness.

Public Accountability: A New Rhythm

The past two weeks have been so jammed, I haven't even had time to post my lists. Which hasn't prevented me from making them, of course. Baby plus end if semester plus moving is just nuts, so something had to give.

But you folks are awesome and now that classes are done, it's time to start a new daily routine at home. There's some grading left, all due by Wednesday, and we are T-minus 17 days until the move. So, there's plenty to get done, as always.

Today, I want to knock out all my 2001 grading. Mémé is coming by at 10:00 to watch the Munchkin while I tackle the garage, and then I have some phone calls to make. I'm trying to be reasonable, too, so laundry will wait until tonight or tomorrow.

But, hey, smiling babies are the best. :-)

Public Accountability: The Home Stretch

Today begins the last week of classes for the semester, which means finals are next week and I have a frakkin' tsunami of grading.

At least I have coffee, right?

This past weekend was rough because Tutu is teething (you can actually see her first tooth coming in!) And there was moving hullabaloo as the home inspector displaced is from the house for most of Saturday.

But, Tutu is in MUCH better spirits this morning, and packing prep continues at a pretty good pace. This evening, I think I will pack the office books and purge the office closet. Not much left on the purge list. :-)

Pics: my to do with some Arkham Origins as my reward today. Also, Tutu and the Munchkin had a good time last night... "Hold still and let me love you!"

Glad you have decided not to go for a liwiid breakfast. I understand it's hard to grade after two martinis.

Good luck!
