2.5 cups per day

I'm Feeling: efficient!
Background Noise: Blessed by Martina McBride

The good old food pyramid that I've known since kindergarten (or somewhere in there) has changed... check out Not only does it involve vertical slices of the pyramid, but there is no straight up number of servings for each - now it depends on your age and gender - yikes! I'm not sure they'll be teaching this to 5-year-olds anymore. (although I'm sure it's much healthier this way)

I'm feeling efficient today because things that need to be done are getting done - I love that feeling! I emailed a bunch of folks yesterday (some I knew, some I didn't) to try to get some guest speakers for my PreLaw class this fall. I've already got 2 "for-sure" speakers - we're trying to nail down the dates still, but that's huge!! It makes me feel so much better already - I can handle the little details of the curriculum, but there are other people out there much better qualified to talk about law school - it's cool that they want to help out! I also made a bajillion new folders for new students yesterday, and am working on filing ridiculous amounts of inconsequential paperwork into these files - I know that doesn't sound too grand, but it's removing stacks of papers from my desk - and that makes me grin!

It's a little gloomy outside today - but I like rain, and I like the fact that it's currently 71 degrees outside instead of 91. Much better, in my opinion. Plus, my flowers are getting watered as we speak, so I don't have to do that when I get home tonight.

The rain is ok but I'm kind of hoping for a little sunshine this afternoon. I can come in and talk to them about law school for while... we can play games equate it to something law related!

I could probably come up with a few reasons why they don't want to go into PreLaw...but that probably wouldn't fit the class very well...
