Its Snowing Again

Its been snowing all day. It looks like it will start sticking. Maybe 2 inches by morning. The buses for Columbus aren't going to be running tomorrow. They got a foot of snow. I think it is the first time this year that they didn't run.

Today has been crazy. Grades had to be turned in. We will set up the bookfair after school tomorrow. And I ended up needing two subs to cover tomarrow for the funeral. One amorning the other afternoon. When I made the original arrangements. I was thinking of Tuesday's schedule not Wednesday.

I feel so discombobulated. Definitely fractured fragments. As I listen to my kids this chaos must be most of their life. I have a hard time keeping track of my life and I only live in one house. Many of mine are at one house this week and another house next week.

Growing up has so many pitfalls. Its hard for me to imagine the expotential problems, because of chaos of multiple homes. I remeber trying to figure out where I belonged. Today its hard for some kids to figure out what there address is this week.

Here is to getting centered on a "Swiftly Tilting Planet." I think I'll go read some fiction. At least there the plot has rules and be predictable.


  1. I could have written this post many times this year. When I feel like that I have to find something to soothe my soul. Hope you have a great book that will soothe yours.

  2. Thank you, I do have a great book I'll read later. It's good to know others understand.

  3. Wow, what a tough day! I remember one year I was counting the days to the end that I read the entire Tolkien ring cycle to take my mind away from it all. Reading does help. Sorry for the added worry about your students & their mixed up lives. Just keep being kind; you may be the rock for them every day.

  4. What a tough day. You need to make time for yourself. Can that happen?

  5. Must be something in the air because I feel out of sorts too. I like how you are thinking of the kids who are not going home to the same house every night. How fractured they must feel some days.

  6. It ended up being a good day. The service was very wonderful. My friend and her family were amazing. I am in awe of the grace and poise they shared as the greeted all those who attended the service.

  7. Glad to hear it all turned out in the end. I saw a friend in the store today--obviously all frazzled up and in a hurry--and I asked him what he was up to. He replied, "Same stuff, different day." I sometimes feel like what you described so well--all confused by the days, the activities, and even what I'm supposed to be doing and where I'm supposed to be going.

    While I'm sure the funeral service was sad and solemn, it does give us a chance to be still and quiet and to stop the madly tilting world.

    Here's to some peace and solace--
