    I recommend the movie Last Vegas to everyone. It's funny, but not silly/stupid.

    Also tried a new Italian place in my area: Brio Tuscan Grille. It was wonderful!

    Yesterday I proctored the SATs until about 12:30. Then it was 5 loads of laundry, some online Christmas shopping, and a little time here. Then a friend stopped by to see the new kitchen. We chatted for a while, she left, and I went to bed.

    I'm glad I turned in early-- when my daughter woke up at 1:30 am violently thowing up, it kept me up for a while. Not sure what's wrong-- she wasn't feversish but had the chills. So mass is off the table for her today, we'll see what else happens today.

    Hope she feels better, Alice!

    Fiance is in town this weekend, so we re-did our engagement pictures in the morning. The weather was beautiful, and the fall colors just exploded overnight. I can't wait to see them!

    Then we spent a lazy afternoon watching football. He cooked me an amazing birthday dinner, and then we visited with some friends for cards, a fire, and dessert. It was a great day!

    Today, it's back to school stuff, chores, and some wedding planning things. :)

    Thanks, guys. She said she had mac and cheese for dinner at a friend's house, so that shouldn't have done it.

    Of course, I have no way of knowing how much Halloween candy she scarfed down during the day. Not that it would explain the chills.

    I had to take a grad final exam, but then my BF & I went to the mall, shopped a little & saw the live performance, A Christmas Carol. (I had never seen it before...I've always seen the Nutcracker ballet for past holidays.)

    I'm snowed in again today, so I'm cleaning out my closet. I'm sending a bunch of stuff to Goodwill as soon as it thaws out.

    Started the day with 5k on the treadmill, then got a second workout clearing the snowdrifts off the driveway. Taking it easy now, feeling all of my muscles starting to stiffen up--should be interesting tomorrow.

    Began the day with marking math assessments so I would have for report cards. Cleaned most of the house then hit the kitchen to cook. Made a Thai chicken coconut soup, bread, chicken salad, a new chocolate cake, and cookies that I am entering into a contest tomorrow. The prize is a large basket of Pampered Chef items. My son says the cookies are great. I hope others do, too.

    Last Saturday I was snowed in and sitting on my couch watching the snow fall. This Saturday it's in the 50's and sunny, so I'm going to hand wash my nasty, salty mess of a truck.

    Later tonight I'm going out with the girls to see a band that we all like. And I'm looking forward to practicing my flirting skills on their singer. ;)

    Finally came to some money :) we all got 3 % raise, and some other things added, and got a small child support check (after not getting any for a couple of years), so I can finally go and buy a laptop. I have been using the school's since last May, when my house was broken into and they took everything.
    I can also buy a new vacuum cleaner, so I'll be cleaning like a mad woman. Then I go out tonight to see my friends, so this weekend will be very nice.

    Since I was at school til late (i.e. past 7 or 8pm) much of the week, dishes and laundry and finishing the rough draft of the state's math competition tests (which I should've had done last month...but have just been too busy with school stuff since it's my first full-time teaching!)...those are the three things I'm pretty much doing today. Hopefully I'll have some time to get to grading/planning for next week, otherwise that'll happen tomorrow before/after/during the Superbowl.

    Staying at home mostly. Working at home. Relaxing. I may just go out to get dinner a little later. Tomorrow, it's probably to my parents to watch my dad.

    So sorry scmom!

    Professional reading- Nonfiction Matters by Stephanie Harvey
    Working on my oil painting

    Relaxing now with dh, a glass of wine and the Olympics...

    It's beautiful here today! It's sunny and near 60 degrees.

    I've gotten quite a bit of stuff done today:
    • dropped neighbor off at the jail
    • went to the gym
    • took out trash
    • washed dishes
    • returned some stuff to Mom's house
    • worked in my classroom about four hours
    • changed bed linens
    • sorted clothes
    • supervised the return of neighbor's wrecked car
    • called jail to have them tell neighbor his car was home

    Just got home a few minutes ago. Still need to do more laundry, find something for supper, and paint my nails.

    I have a lot to do today:
    -3d ultrasound. We weren't able to get very many pictures at the first one, so they scheduled a 2nd appointment.
    -Babies R Us to look at cribs
    -Walmart to send some money
    -Payless to find cheap slip on shoes for my flight home in 3 weeks
    -Grocery shopping
    -Motherhood Maternity to get more stretch mark cream (not that it's helping at all) and some maternity workout clothes. I've been walking every day and don't have enough to wear!
