    It's been a beautiful Saturday here, as well. I hardboiled a dozen eggs that were left over from an egg-dying party we had the other day, went for a nice walk, scouted out a few yard sales, got some new books from the library, and spent the afternoon reading and relaxing with the dogs -- a wonderful day!

    I made my parents' cards. I found it so odd that Target had Easter cards for either mother OR both parents, but NOT just father! :mad: So I couldn't buy one for one parent & make one for the other, so I made them both.

    My Target had a great selection of cards two weeks ago, but by yesterday they may have been out of some specific types.

    There wasn't even a place for it on the greeting card wall where all the cards would have been empty...in fact, there wasn't a big selection at all. ALSO, I have a Hallmark card maker program on my computer that I bought & can buy annually & father-only Easter cards aren't there either...well, there's just 2. That's the beauty of a card-making program, I can easily switch out the words & add/edit my own!

    Could be they condensed the Easter section down. My sister worked in a card store during hs and they were always keeping up with the cards...making sure empty slots got filled in, removing header tabs from empty areas, condensing the selection as a holiday was imminent, clearing out right after the holiday...

    Glad you were able to make something nice, Ms I! Hope you had a good Easter!

    It's not supposed to be a nice day here, but we're driving down to see Lauren's last game of the spring season and the forecast there is beautiful (may be able to be in a tee shirt a the game)!

    I ran my first 5K this morning. I am not much of a runner, and I walked more than I ran . . . but I did it! I finished in 44 minutes 10 seconds.

    I walked 25 laps at the high school track, then went grocery shopping with a couple of friends. I also mowed my yard, did all the laundry, and did a few other things around the house.

    Not too glamorous of a day. Cleaned house because next weekend my daughter graduates from college and family is coming in. I get to see my beautiful niece, sister and mom.

    One of my longtime friends is graduating from college tomorrow. I'm going to her graduation. After that, her uncle is taking us all out to eat, and the two of us are going to a bar to see friends in a band that night. Should be fun. The hardest part was finding an outfit that will go from graduation to bar.

    Spent Saturday at Ohio Education Assembly meeting in Columbus. I got to meet one of the candidates for governor (both were invited, but guess which one showed!).

    Today we will work in the yard awhile, run a few errands and cook out. One daughter will be here on her way to her summer field work, and the other may make it if she gets back from an out of state trip for her summer internship.

    What I need to do:
    email principals, clean my apartment, take away the clothes I'm getting rid of, email more principals, and get a haircut

    What I have actually accomplished:
    killing 2 slices of pizza and a slice of raspberry cheesecake
    Well, that's about it, and it's already 4:30 :/

    I need to get out of bed. I had an invitation to go out last night, and ended up at the highest point in the county watch the meteor shower. Got home at 5am.

    Now need to do laundry, go to a 100th birthday party, and go swimming later.

    I started the day with a 6.6k wog (and was thrilled to note that the "walk" is getting shorter and shorter!). Spent a little time catching up online then walked to the organic food store. After lunch, I'll sit out on the deck to do some marking and need to tackle the garden out front. This is the first weekend that it's truly feeling as though summer is coming!

    This is basically my last weekend of "freedom" before the next grad courses come.

    - work out as much as I can
    - work as much as I can (I have fun jobs!)
    - start reading grad course info
    - run couple of errands

    Don't know what else yet...relax!

    These hot Saturdays are great reminders of how wonderful summer holidays are! I'm entertaining twice this weekend, so today is prep day! I have 2 desserts on the go, laundry humming and I'm heading outside to spray down all the patio chairs.

    I'm working on getting my classroom packed up. With the class I had this year, it was easier to keep them completely busy until the very bitter end and then come in this weekend to do it...

    Started the day with grocery shopping, then went for a run(!) and just got back from the garden centre. I'm going to spend a few hours this afternoon watching the Blue Jays game while grading, then I'm going to head out to get some of those plants in the ground. Tomorrow will be a rerun of today, minus the grocery shopping.
