Good Grief

Charlie Brown. I can't even come up with anything good to say, other than this: unfortunately, spring break is over and we're headed back to school in the morning. This is yucky because I am sick, with a nasty cold that I came down with on the college trip. (College trip: 27 kids, 12 colleges, 4 days, 3 chaperones, 2 states, 1 school bus. Yikes.) Oh, and my cat died last Monday. And my mom is having surgery on Thursday.

On the plus side, I'm going to see my fav band Girlyman on Saturday and one of my best friends from college is taking me to see Indigo Girls in June.

Trying New Things

I want to try this: Couch-to-5K.

I need new sneakers. There is an associated podcast to help with the timing so you don't have to pay as much attention.

Also, work totally still blows, but hey, at least I've been observed three times in the past week, for a total of... one hour, 15 minutes.

Note to self for next week: try a chalk talk with the kids, 'cause it's something different and, apparently, innovative.

Big Absence

After some of the longest weeks of my life, things are totally up in the air in most areas of my professional life.

But, a vignette to ease back into posting: grocery shopping today after school, roaming the aisles, bopping along to "...Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears, alternately thinking "Man this is catchy!" and "Man, she's a train wreck!"
