so today . . . i tried to blog. really, i did. but i wanted to use some video, and it is taking FOREVER to download. i don't know if the problem is the internet or blogger or my computer or the size of the file. rollie took the video with his slick little pocket-sized video camera, but it records in high-definition. and since it CAN record in high-def, i am pretty sure that he did. because, you know, why would you record in a lower resolution when you have the capabilty to record in high-def. in your pocket! so it may be the size of the file that is taking so long . . .
but it is really late, and i am soooo tired. i even fell asleep today at school. after the kids had their rest time, my four little kindergarteners were playing with legos, and i just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer! so i leaned my head back against the wall, and took a little catnap. the kids were so funny. when they saw me with my eyes shut, they got very quiet . . . and then without moving or opening my eyes, i said, "i'm not asleep. i'm just resting my eyes." they were so surprised that chaos ensued for the next couple of minutes. (and for those of you who are worried, no, i didn't really sleep. but it sure felt good to close my eyes for ten minutes or so . . . )
so today's blog is not going to appear today, because i cannot stay awake any longer waiting for those crazy videos to load. i am going to sleep. but i will keep trying to make it work.
maybe they will be done by tomorrow. or thursday.
ah, technology. some days i love it. some days i want to rip it's face off. today, i am not loving it, so i leave you to draw your own conclusions . . .
