Three Things I think I think....


I think I was mistaken in being overly concerned that my blog had been abandoned as of late but I noticed Hurricane has filled in for me very well while I’ve been inundated with school demands; writing IEP’s, IEP meetings, Interim reports, and transition meetings and on and on and on…oh and by the way, I need to teach and prepare my kids for End of Grade tests.


But hey, the mark of a great assistant is the ability to carry on without their leader; thanks Hurricane! What would I do without you buddy?!

I think or rather, I KNOW, I am thankful to each of you if you’ve already purchased my book or added the link to your sidebar. I’m excited about the prospect of being able to donate money to C.A.R.A. As an organization, they’ve been instrumental in taking care of and re-uniting lost pets with their families of the tornado victims/survivors. I appreciate your support. See “X” is for X-tra for complete details: previous post.  You know I'll keep bugging you to support this great cause so just beware! :)

I think the award for finishing the A to Z Challenge; isn’t it cool? It was great fun and proud I was able to finish!


Would I do it again? Umm, I think I would although I truly missed my friends who have been long time followers and look forward to getting back into a routine of visiting those friends consistently; I've missed you guys. However, I also move onward and embark the trial of getting more acquainted with bloggers I picked up along with way in the challenge.

So life returns to normal, whatever that is…
Love and hugs to all~

May is crazy with end-of-the-year happenings and I'm with you--there isn't time to breathe. Can Hurricane come over and cover for me too? :)

If you find out what "normal" is, please let me know.
Good luck as you get through the end of the school year adventures.

I'm glad things are getting back to normal. Are you off all summer when school lets out, what will you be doing?

Patty Ann said...

Wow, that was an amazing challenge. I have a hard enough time just keeping up with my blog, let alone taking on challenges. Good for you!

Hurricane needs to hold a seminar for dogs to teach them cover their parents blogs on occasion. He is so good that it makes me realize Mighty is a total slacker.
Big congrats on your finish and award.

Mamma has spoken said...

I know what you are going through at work. I only have 16 more teaching days and I still have so much paperwork to do. I so look forward to summer break but not all the stuff I have to get done first.

Just think... it is almost summer. I look forward to normal and like you, "Whatever that is." :)

Congratulation in finishing your challenge!

It's great know that you're an author, with such grace and humbling comparing to those that are conceited and running amok with their links! I'm honored to have known you through the blogging world.

I may be out of the classroom, but May is still really, really busy! I like my kind of busy, though, a lot better! :)

Dawn said...

Normal isn't really real....Is It?

Hi, Tracy! I can't believe I missed Hurricane's X post, that's so great you are donating to C.A.R.A. I've ordered Hurricane's book, I adore animal stories, and it's wonderful to be contributing to such a fantastic cause. Hurricane is a charmer! :D

Congratulations on making it to the end of the Challenge, I'm so glad I discovered your blog. Hugs to you.

Those IEPs and meetings about IEPs--glad I don't have to do them.

The end of school is so frantically crazy. But soon, there will be breathing room.
