And, the best part? I'm FINALLY on spring break. I thought it would never get here, but alas, I'm free for 9 whole days :) haha
Time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday...
So, here we go... five random things from my week...
1) I've been in a cloud of allergies this week & no amount of allergy medicine is helping. All my "m"s sound like "b"s and as much as I love spring, I think I like breathing more. Oh, and then there's the crazy process of actually trying to buy Sudafed, the only thing that works me for.
Apparently, drug stores need a blood sample, an arm, leg, two references, a driver's license, 3 donkeys and a direct order from the President to actually allow you to buy the stuff. Seriously... I had to go to eight, yes EIGHT, pharmacies to get the stuff. And no, I'm not on some kind of meth watch list. :(
2) The beach.... yay!
Well, ALMOST the beach. I have two trips planned, and as of today, they are both booked, paid for, and now it's down to waiting. All these folks from work are heading there tonight or tomorrow, and sadly, I'm not. BUT, I AM going in May & July (and maybe June?) so I can't complain. I'm so ready to go though...
Now, I have to wait for the University to accept me...the paperwork to apply is craziness!! I'm drowning in it already & I haven't even started class! :)
It was the culmination of our Manners Unit & the kids had so much fun. We're only allowed two parties a year (Christmas & End of the Year), but I was able to pull this one off because we were practicing our manners, and summarizing everything we'd learned about manners. It was awesome!!
Look! Napkins in lap!
Loving the Pinky Up position. This little one explained that her momma told
her that's how ladies drink their "tea".
5) I FINALLY got a template up for my parent handbook!
There's just no way to make a printable template to download, so I'm offering to make these for folks that want one. If you're interested, or know someone who might be, you can click the picture for the link. It's not the best picture, and no, the final one WON'T have the black lines you see. You can see the original post about this handbook <here>.
So, that's about it for me! Time for some rest, relaxation, a little shopping, some gardening, & cleaning this house. My bedroom looks like my closet exploded & the laundry just HAS to bed done. Not exactly a dream, 5 star, spring break, but it's exactly what I need :)
Tomorrow, my parents and MB are coming to help me plant these gorgeous hydrangeas... aren't these just plain gorgeous??
Happy Friday, and Happy Spring Break to those GA teachers who are finally getting their time off. Have a great one & thanks for stopping by! :)
