    Sooo....it is wall to wall sunshine, and still cold! I hear the birds, and I see buds on the trees...I think spring is coming, but I am not convinced yet.
    PS-I heard the same thing about the groundhog.....

    Soooooo ... spring is here knitter63.. at least in Colorado... after a trip to the gym I spent about 4 hours out in the "wilds" just experiencing nature where I hiked with my dog, observed lots of interesting animal tracks, including some fresh "big cat" tracks.... It was a mountain lion and my dog and I never really knew just how close the magnificent creature was....... Made for an exciting, wonderful day.....

    Sooooo... after school I picked up the kids, and brought them to Home Depot. We picked up paint for the dining room-- a pewter grey-- and all the necessary supplies. (The vertical blinds are kind of a rose color.)

    Then we went to Moes' for dinner, and came home. While the kids hung out, I taped all the windows and molding, and moved the china cabinet a few feet. I'm all set to start painting tomorrow afternoon.

    Peter will be pleasantly surprised when he gets home from Disney.

    Soooooo... my calculus teacher emailed me and wants to recommend me for the AAUP Outstanding Future Teacher Award for my college's chapter. I think that's pretty nice of her. I've never been nominated for anything like this before...it's pretty cool :)

    Soooo... the dining room is all painted; it came out nice!!!!

    I went to Home Depot and kind of settled on rug I don't love. Serves me right-- I got it home and it's too big!!! I'm debating between getting Brian to help me LIFT the china cabinet so I can squeeze it underneath and just giving up and returning it.

    Of course, the rest of the house is in total turmoil, so I have lots of cleaning to do.

    It's so rewarding when you get done with things like that! Good luck with your rug dilemma. ;)

    Soooooo... 11 families showed up to my classroom cleanup today. Amazing energy! The kids were bionic. They even washed the pattern blocks and unifix cubes! My closet is 100% organized, labeled, and the floor is clear. Feeling quite appreciated (this was my Teacher Appreciation Gift) :wub:

    As a morning show anchor she was cute and played the part well. As a news anchor "cute" doesn't really come to mind. She didn't have the commanding presence you'd expect of a news anchor though. She has plenty of money, so she doesn't need to worry too much about being let go.

    So...today is one of those extremely rare days being a sub when state testing is going on, but I assist the SLP, so I won't be seeing kids at all for the 1st 1/2 of the day! I'm sure I'll only work w/ a handful; of kids today. I have my mini laptop & having fun online. This is also a once in a lifetime day that I have this particular classroom to myself. At the school I'm at on Weds, the school psych, psych intern, & special ed teacher are ALL in here too. :mellow:

    Good luck rw/s!

    So, I have 10 days left of work after today's over. I'm so glad since I started grad school again last wk & it's already pretty rigorous! :dizzy: I'm still waiting on my SLPA license document to come in the mail. I should have it in the next 3 wks. Thank God the job posting for the SLPA job at my district isn't up yet.
