Facts of Five and Updates....
1.) I've been sick! That's why I've been M.I.A. I have a throat filled with prickly pins, ears filled with cotton balls and a head full of well, I won't say it but it's not pretty. I don't make for a very good sick person. I try to maintain life as it is and manage to get myself in trouble because I push too hard and become exhausted...so I was given the good ol' 'Z-pak' to rid myself of a sinus and ear infections...make it work fast!
2.) EOG testing week is here...which means End of Grade tests. Ever since George Bush instigated the law of No Child Left on Their Behind, whooops, I mean, No Child Left Behind, we've been giving these silly tests to measure children's achievements and aptitudes--can I tell you who's behind I'd like to shove these?
3.) Thank you for all the kind words and support on my Mother's Day post. To add to that, I had a wonderful Mother's Day from my boys. I received flowers, then for lunch lobster tails, scallops over linguini and scalloped oysters and a day full of "Mom is the Best' sentiments which are irreplaceable. I love my boys!
4.) Only FOUR more days until Track Out!!! Hurray!!! For all of you who don't know or remember, I teach in a year round school so we don't have summer breaks. We go to school for nine weeks with three weeks off --so this is my last track out for this school year. We return to school for three more weeks and the school year is over! One week later, a new one starts so can I just tell you how excited I am for track out? My goal is to GET WELL!!!
