The emporer's new clothes.
I just got a bunch of new clothes in the mail! They're teacher clothes (comfy, long skirts and non-skanky t-shirts to be worn with cardigans - NOT the kind with holiday motifs!) but they're new and cheap and comfy and now I have lots more teacherly choices so I don't have to creep my kids out by wearing the same shit over and over.
Also, today we ran around like chickens with our heads cut off - but we own the house now!! AND we sold the truck! I'm proud of us - R is sick as a monkey but he soldiered on through all day without complaints (with a little crankiness, but that's to be expected with a rotten cold) and got it all done. Yay Robert! And *I* didn't put anything off! Yay me!
