We're NOT going back east next week to see our families.
The corporate headquarters of the school I work for is not paying me my overlap checks until mid-July: a week after we planned to leave. Those overlap checks were to pay me for the old teacher contract I had which overlapped the pay period of my new IC contract.
Those overlap checks were our vacation money.
Which won't come until after vacation.
I really wanted to see VPJWS.
I really wanted to see Eli who's not even born yet but will have been which is why we planned our trip for July.
I just miss my family.

Found it!

Yay, me! I found my missing sock that I accused Charlie of eating!
As an English teacher, I pride myself on my selection of exact, precise diction, so I was rather disappointed to find I had not chosen the right word to define the disappearance of my sock.
Let me tell a story.
When I was putting Charlie in his kennel out last night, a peculiar smell assaulted my nostrils and a curious color and texture stained his flannel blanket. When I pulled his bedding out, a trail of vomit followed. And tucked deep inside the blankie he so cherishes was my once white yet now orangey-brown sock. Covered in slime and gastric juices.
Charlie did not, in fact, EAT my sock; he swallowed it. Whole. And then puked it up.
I made Kory throw it away.

The list...

  1. oranges--with peel
  2. dried sticks from maple tree
  3. feces from unknown animal
  4. asparagus
  5. Irish Spring
  6. bits of paper, staples included
  7. tinfoil with dried barbeque sauce
  8. one recently used, dirty gym sock

This is not my Walmart list or even a compliation of items found strewn around the house and yard. It's not even a collection of items at the bottom of my trash can.

It IS, however, a recently updated list of things Charlie has eaten.
