I have failed as a blogger

A whole litany of events transpired this morning and I managed to capture none of them on camera or video. I apologize. Please, try to use your imagination:

6:15 a.m. iced lemon cupcakes for Jack Henry's holiday spotlight day at school, which had to be done by hand because I forgot to buy pastry bags.

7:00 a.m. made breakfast for the boy (oatmeal); and coffee for Hubz (percolated).

7:15 a.m. took shower and slapped on make-up.

8:30 a.m. tried to get Jack Henry into car, which resulted in a colossal meltdown, including him accidentally sitting on the cupcake box. Stern warnings, tears and hugs followed.

9:20 a.m. arrived at school for Jack Henry's special day. Read Curious George Christmas book aloud and tried to keep 16 3-year-olds' attention while talking about what our family does for Christmas (for the record: Set up Snow Village, decorate Christmas tree, mail Christmas cards, open presents, bake cupcakes for the Baby Jesus' birthday, and give gifts to people who don't have food or presents) Jack Henry ended the presentation by saying, "Merry Christmas everybody!"

9:45 made craft with the kids: a coloring page of a Christmas ornament which we decorated with stickers and fuzzy pom-pom balls.

10:15 Cleaned up classroom and headed back to work to face deadline.

10:30 Collapsed at desk with coffee. Can I go back home now?
