Random thoughts

Today I heard from Cass who received my swap items for the blue exchange. She seemed really pleased, which is great. I had a really fun time picking the stuff out, so I'm glad she liked them. I did include something with sugar, and then read that she doesn't eat sugar - ooops!
Today was my last day of school, which was very nice! My students left in the middle of May so I have been just surfing the net for a few weeks. This is the best feeling - all of you teachers out there know exactly what I mean. That feeling you have on the 1st day of summer vacation. Ohhh it is so full of potential! Don't get me wrong, I love teaching, and I love the kids, but I ABSOLUTELY ADORE summer vacation. I had 4 kids come see me today, so it was great to see them. I had such a great group of students this year. I teach 125 kids, and this year there wasn't even one that I couldn't stand. (Let me tell you, most years there is at least one!) I'm a very lucky person!
We had a busy weekend. I threw my husband a 40th birthday party. We had about 40-50 people here, and it really was great. I cleaned by buying 10 MORE Rubbermaid tubs, and putting all of the random stuff in them. I think emptying the bins is going to take me the next 2 weeks! Knitting has slowed a little due to carpal tunnel. It isn't awful, but I think my tendons need a little break.

I totally understand "summer vacation" - I am sitting here with the "summer school" crew wondering... Why did I volunteer to do summer school? I teach Junior High Math - have about 100 students.

You clean like I do.. hee hee
