12 of 12. May

Welcome to my 12 of 12 for the month of May. This is the brainchild of Chad Darnell. You can check out other participants by linking HERE.
I had a late start to the day today.
When we woke up this morning it had been snowing already for a few hours. It put such a kink in my day I never recovered.
1. 8:30 am
My spousal unit has started some plants in the house. It's a good thing they haven't made it into the ground already because the snow today would have killed them.
2. 9:30 am
When I am trying to get out of the house quickly I seem to do best by getting Max ready and sending him out the door while I get everything else together. When I came out to put him in the van he was hard at work (as always) doing what? Why mowing the snow of course!

3. 10:30 am.
Finally made it in to work today. I've been late two consecutive days now and I am frustrated with myself. I HATE being late and I have no idea what is happening to me. I did get a new pair of shoes this weekend (which I LOVE) but I even had to wear my boots into work and change into my shoes because I didn't want to wear them in the snow the second time I ever put them on.
4. Noon.
I am working on my thesis and desperately needing to get organised. I took some time today to start putting together files of my research. Thesis writing is directly related to killing trees. I am certain I will update this file photo picture as I progress with my writing to illustrate what I mean.
5. 4:30
Time to start working editing my proposal. I sent my proposal draft to my supervisor and she returned it. I took this picture to illustrate how much it has been "marked on" by her. There are about 20 other pages and they all look similar. I have a lot of revisions to make!

6. 2pm.
Did I mention it was slow in the office today? When it is slow I like to take time and clean up stuff that tends to "accumulate" over the term. Here is a keg I confiscated - students are not permitted kegs in residence. I picked that bad boy up with one hand thinking it was empty and it wasn't. I almost broke every bone from my wrist to my ankle but at that point I put on a brave face and hauled it to my office. It took me forever to recover, but didn't harm my reputation with students! Now I have to get rid of it. I have no idea WHAT to do with it exactly, so it will sit here until another slow day. (It is blocking my access to my punching bag!)

7. 3:30pm

I have been getting in LOADS of reading for class today. Not what I am supposed to be doing I think, but since I can't do anything with the keg..... This is binder number one of two I have for this class. Look at me getting class work done ahead of time!

8. 5:00pm.

The people I work with totally make me laugh. You know EVERYONE in the office is having a slow week when lost sunglasses clips get a pair of eyes in the window.

9. 5:04pm

All the snow has melted. HIP HIP HOORAY! too bad the forecast for Sunday is another 10cm of the white stuff. Will Summer EVER get here?

10. 5:15pm

What would a day be without a little farm town? If I can't plant a garden in real life then I can at least plant on facebook. (Shawanda - is the picture too small? Can you see what is sitting on the bottom left corner of the computer?)

11. 10:12 pm

Trying to keep my phone charged is driving me insane. It loses it's charge daily, often more than once a day. It is charging in the office right now, but then I forget it which is less effective.

12. 10:14pm. Living in the north definitely has it's benefits. This is what it looks like outside at 10pm at night. Unfortunately I think those are snow clouds building in the west.

The FarmTown sounded interesting, so I went looking for it, but couldn't find it. I found MyCity though, so I'm gonna give that a try!

Good luck with all the revisions!

Sorry I'm so behind on commenting - been a very busy time with lots of travel! Even my 12 of 12 was only up on the 15th!
