"Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?"

Friday, May 14, 2010


I don't have another picture of the sweater to post, but I did finish the button loops Tuesday night in time to gift it on Wednesday. I didn't like the look of the loops but left it too late to do anything else with it. They just made it look lumpy to me, if that makes sense, but of course everyone at the shower was complimentary.

I'm so glad it's Friday I can hardly stand it, although my weekend is looking just as busy. I work until 8 p.m. tonight at a school function and tomorrow there are two booksales and the Greek Festival that S and I want to attend. Steve will go to the booksales but he's not crazy about the Greek Fest. Then on Sunday, it's another family birthday, my niece's 21st. Still haven't figured out what to buy her so that's on the to-do list as well.

Headed out the door now with muffins for my peeps (team members). I baked a batch yesterday as thank you gifts for my AVID tutors, and one of my team mates was so disappointed they weren't for us, so I'm trying to make it up to her. She's the math teacher and she's WAY more stressed about the upcoming end of year tests than I am, so this should help.

Have a happy day!


  1. We don't have end-of-the-year tests, which is both a good and a bad thing! I'm glad not to have the stress. And having three weeks afterward makes no sense! We don't ask college students to go to classes after finals. Don't you think that a lot of education policy defies common sense?

  2. A Greek Fest sounds like fun...does it come with food?
    Your muffins have inspired me to go make some. I was thinking about it and you just gave me the extra shove. Thanks.
    Hope you get through the day OK.

  3. Caffeine Girl: Yes, public education often lacks common sense, unfortunately, which can get really frustrating.

    Stephanie: Of course Greek fest has food! It's the main reason to go! I'll have photos for sure.
