I had a professor in college who ended every class by saying, "The teacher's greatest obstacle is the clock."

I got my hair did last night.
And today I'm a new woman.
Not really. I'm still the same old me, but with darker hair.
As a kid, my hair was super dark. Then 15 year old me discovered Sun-In. And in my teenage logic I deducted that since the directions called for sun or a blowdryer then the necessary ingredient for developing sun-kissed tresses was heat. So I tested my hypothesis and sprayed the heck out of my hair and then slid a curling iron slowly through it.
Oh, the heat activated the color alright and I had streaks of orange hair. As in Sunkist oranges and not sun-kissed. It was awful.
After that I retired from the role of Beauty School Dropout and ventured into salons where I entrusted the pros to work their magic. This summer I went out on a limb and had it highlighted. It was borderline blond.
Blonds don't really have more fun in case you are wondering.
Last night I had her darken it.
Today I went to school and overheard this conversation while I was doing a running record:
Student A: Mrs. D needs to spend more time in the sun. Her blond streaks are fading.
Student B: That's not from the sun. She dyes it to cover the grey.
Student A: She doesn't have grey hair.
Student B: That's because she buys brown hair with highlights.
Dear Student B, I'll be working on your report card this weekend. Just saying. Love, Your Teacher

And you snap a photo of the leaves that have all fallen from the tree and are covered in frost. Which makes you bitter because you know that means...
...that your car will be covered in frost. So you get inside and for the first time in the season...
...you turn the heat on. And you sit in your car and sip your hot coffee because it beats scraping the frost off manually. And while you sit there you mentally compose a blog post about it and promise yourself that you are going to put it online that night because you miss blogging and you miss the people and you have been meaning to get back to it.

In many ways, this time of year is the most wonderful to me.

I also plan on using it for movement breaks and as a reward.
It is Bop It!
It's a bit addictive. My son received one for his birthday. I'm proud to say I am the high score holder in our house.
When you start it it plays a funky little rhythm and instructs you to bop it (hit the center button), pull it (pull a handle on one end) or twist it (turn a knob at the other end).
You can play as an individual or as a group. When playing as a group you need to "pass it."
They sell them at Target and Walmart and the like. They are under $20.00.
Good times people, good times!
