oops -- it's Friday and I'm out of town!!

My sister said I need to update this, so here goes. I wich I had some pictures to put up, but I'm visiting our brother at Liberty University right now, so I don't think I'm allowed to upload pictures. I want to show you pictures of my curtains and digital piano cover, so maybe next time.

It's spring break!!! I spent the first few days at my parent's house, celebrating Easter. I got my taxes done and went "shopping" at the local thrift store. (on a happy note, I went there to get some smaller-size jeans - I'm down 2 or 3 sizes!!) I left on Wednesday to visit our brother, Kaleb. He's in his 3rd year at LU, so it has been great to hang out with him for a few days and meet his friends. I'm headed back to my parent's house today. It's been a really good, relaxing time just "chillin' with my bro"

Wednesday's What and other "stuff"

I'll get to the "what" in a minute. Before that, here's a quick update.

I haven't been feeling well for over a week. The last time this happened, I ended up with the flu and secondary pneumonia, so (with some "encouragement" from my mother) I went to the doctor after school on Monday. I was in and out in record time, considering it's an "urgent care" facility which usually makes you glad that whatever is wrong isn't really THAT urgent! Long story short - I have strep! This wasn't too surprising given that 3 of my students were out with it and the 2nd grade teacher had it also! This gave me a "get-out-of-school-free" card for Tuesday, but it was back to the grind today. I'm still only at about 70%, since I'm still really congested, but I have more energy when I'm "out and about" than when I'm just sitting at home watching the paint fade!
So I came back today to a disinfected room (thanks a BUNCH to my aide and a special mom of my students!) This comes at an especially good time because of grandparent's day this Friday!

Wednesday's What:

What is the strangest thing you have "hanging around" your house/apartment?

I'll leave you with these pictures as my answer:

I know -- great job keeping up with the blog! I even missed my 2nd "Wednesday's What?" OK, so here it is:

What do you like to do on the weekends? I like to stay home and try to get moved into my apartment. I've been there since September, but still have boxes to unpack!


We had this word in our Reading book this week. I asked one of the students to read it to me. I guess this shows the usefulness of phonics! They pronounced it: must ache. I don't know if people who have them feel that way, but I was proud of their effort!
