Began my Friday by returning a dog I found running back and forth across a five-lane road. Off to a good start!

We’re wrapping up Teacher Appreciation Week. Feeling very grateful for the kindness and generosity of the families I work with.

“I TRIED TO HAVE A GOOD DAY,” wails one of the preschoolers in the neighboring classroom, “BUT I COULDN’T EVEN HAVE A GOOD HOUR!”

Got both Scout and Inis - a couple of my current favorites - to the table last night.

Waking up every morning and working my way through a battery of Wordle clones has started to feel like when I was spending forty-five minutes every evening catching up with my Draw Something games.

Got in a game of Root last night for the first time in quite a while, and it was a good one. My birds were one turn short of winning when the Wilderness Alliance pulled ahead.

Forgot to get many pictures, but my partner and I came home yesterday from a small house con that a friend was kind enough to organize. I wasn’t really in a headspace to do a lot of role-playing, but we got A LOT of board games to the table. My final tally: Scout, Pounce, Just One, Codenames, Orleans, Forgotten Waters, Jump Drive, Oath, Through the Ages, Iberian Gauge, The Crew, and Zing.
