Falling Up

Time already for another installment of:  You Know You're Wiped When...

... you fall down while walking up a staircase. True story. Happened to me tonight on my way to a class.

Maybe it's the 7+ contact hours with students each day or waking up to temps of 1 F (-17 C) or a combination of both, but whatever it is I'm exhausted, though ever grateful for:
  • employment, doing work I enjoy 
  • central heating
  • a comfy bed

[NB:  Falling Up is the name of a book of poems by Shel Silverstein. While I haven't read it, I'm fond of the title. Maybe it's time to revisit some of Uncle Shleby's works and unwind a bit; Where the Sidewalk Ends was always a favorite of mine in elementary school.]


  1. Where the Sidewalk Ends is a classic of our time!! I miss you Jen...so good to see you over the holidays. I hear there may be another visit in the works? Hope to see you. xoxo

  2. jen, i fall down while going up stairs quite often and i am not even tired so what's up with that?? i think you may take after your God mother who has coordination problems! xoxo :)
