Because I really don’t have time for a proper post March 29, 2011

I have lots of thoughts, but no time and am in need of sleep. Therefore, enjoy the following bullet points.

• Head over to EngineerBlogs.org and check out the theme for the week: networking.

• During my commute and exercise, I’ve been listening to the book Brain Rules. I honestly believe everyone who is a teacher of any age group ought to read this book. In particular, some of you know that we recently moved the younger boy to a new school. A major problem that we were trying to make clear is that removing recess from his schedule if he failed to complete an assignment was NOT a good way to handle the problem and may, in fact, be counter productive. The book vindicates my stance on this. I will probably write out more once I’ve finished the book.

• I discovered today that it is possible to be productive and have several meetings in a single day. Color me stunned.

• Three more days before Gigadog arrives.

• I’ve discovered that playing violin soon after one gets braces is really not pleasant. My teeth aren’t too happy with my right now.

• The Red River hit flood stage today. Wish us luck. I’m drawing up plans for an ark. If you’d like to see current levels and predictions, you can look here: http://bit.ly/f9qR1q

• The schedule is more hectic than usual this week, but normal posting should return around the weekend. I’ll try to post something, but if not, you know what’s going on. Thanks for hanging in there.
