This Day is Lame

I am a bad teacher today. I usually have a lot of spunk at school. Energy is my middle name. My students do not leave my class without a joke (sometimes at my expense), but today, I'm just BLAH. My students are quietly working while I'm sitting at my desk typing this blog; ah! just the way I like it.
Why? Why, Cambria? Why are you so BLAH today? I'll tell you why! Because of this! . . .

She looks sweet and innocent, right? .. She is, actually, but she's a little puppy. Her little puppy bladder can't hold it all night. So, like an infant, I am up in the middle of the night letting her out to go potty. Now, you might not know this already, but Cambrias really don't do well with no sleep. They get grumpy, they snap at their husbands, they drag and basically, if allowed, will curl up into a ball on the floor and cry. .or pass out, whichever comes first.
God bless my little dog. Course, she's not only to blame. Our new empty house, in all its glory looms at me whispering at all the work that is in store for me now that I am responsible for it. Stupid adulthood.
If anyone needs me, I'll be asleep at my desk.
