    Eta: bias because of the books means I'm negatively biased against the books (horrible), not the movie.

    Aren't you currently grading CAASPP?

    My district will be taking it after Spring Break, so you'll most likely be grading several thousand of ours!

    So far, I'm doing that a few days later this month for 4 hrs each. That's it so far there. There must be a lot of scorers, so they're trying to get everyone as equal hrs as possible.

    My Saturdays are so much fun the past few months.

    I had a seizure today. Yay.

    One of my medications (one that wasn't lowered) has been upped by 1000 mg a day (now I do 1500 mg x2 daily) until I talk to my neurologist next (probably monday)

    4 hours at about $12 per hour? Taxable. Trying to get everyone 'equal time'... Sad commentary on how highly the testing company values highly qualified scorers. Ms I, at least you have education experience and advanced degrees. The same cant be said of all those who will be scoring these high stakes tests.:(

    Sat, I went to a marketplace/farmer's market w/ tons of vendors. I go there maybe once or twice a year. Then, next door on the premises was the pet expo. It's just like the fair, but pertaining to all kinds of pets. I go to that about every other year. I shopped at The Continaer Store, then, I worked that night.

    Today, it's some morning walking, relaxing, maybe a little grocery shopping. I want to get a couple of organic cucumbers to make my cucumber water. I'll work again tonight.

    I went to see Furious 7 and get lunch with a friend, and then I was supposed to have a tattoo revision. However, my artist ended up in the ER last night.

    Yesterday I did some spring cleaning and ran some errands. I also BBQd and had the tastiest supper! I wanted to get out the patio furniture, but I'm not sure it's warm enough yet to sit on the deck.

    It's rainy today so I'm going to stay curled up on the couch.

    Busy weekend here: goodbye/birthday party for my husband's friend that is moving out-of-state on Friday, Saturday chores and a nap before an amazingly fun trivia night fundraiser at a local high school, Sunday church activities and a bit of schoolwork with a few more chores. The house is CLEAN and organized, a lot of projects got done, and I am totally caught up on laundry!

    We planted blackberry bushes last year but I think they are dead :( I will have to go back and look. I think we need to plant them in an area with better soil and light next time.

    Today's Sunday, but yesterday I went to Disneyland!
    It was literally overnight, not even that. We flew out to California in the middle of the night Friday, got to the park when it opened (a friend works there so we even got in for free), stayed until the park closed and drove straight back to the airport and flew home. Since we all had frequent flier miles, we went to Disneyland completely free of charge. Awesome.

    Sun - Lighter day. Planning on a morning at the gym, doing more work, relaxing, watching TV, & having a few appetizers from PF Chang's for dinner.

    Gorgeous day here! Worked out for 40 minutes this morning, cleaned out the fridge, and did some food prep for the upcoming week. In a few minutes I'm heading out for a long walk--I have tons to do in the house, but it's a beautiful day and I can't resist!

    Seeing Avengers for the fourth and fifth time.
    Yes, I'm aware that it's only been out for two and a half days. But between all of my family members and friends with different schedules, I get invited to all the viewings.
    I mean, it's a good movie, but five times in two days? It's already starting to bug me.

    Five times in two days is a bit much - it is a good movie, though.
