Contrary to popular belief, I did NOT fall off the face of the earth! :)

Thanks, Lisa, for kicking my bloggy butt into gear! :) Let's recap my week, shall we?

It's been a teacher version of hell-week. I was kicked out of my old classroom, and moved into a much smaller one. Keep in mind that tech. ed. teachers come with a lot of crap. My first load of stuff was moved up there, and the maintenance guys looked at me like I was crazy when I said I would find a place for it all. Guess what -- did that, and brought up a second load that I also successfully unpacked. Sadly, it was one of the best parts of my school year thus far. :) j/k

I actually like the new place where I get my teach on. :) Instead of inhaling dust, I get to breathe in that "new classroom" smell. It's smaller, which means less space for stuff, but also less space for my students to try to roam. I'm right around the corner from the teachers' lounge and faculty restrooms. I hope I can get some photos next week...but I won't bring my camera until I get a locking door on my storage closet.

We had a two-hour delay on Tuesday, which meant my morning classes lasted 30 minutes each! Woohoo! It so looked like we would have a snow day today...darned system went south of us!

I've been watching a lot of Welcome Back, Kotter. My parents gave me season 1 for Christmas -- it was my favorite show back when Nick at Nite played shows from the 70s. It's still so much fun to watch!

This week, Lola learned why we don't jump blindly into bathtubs. She made a running leap at Mike's bathwater the other night, only to learn that water is a very, very wet thing. We learned that she can doggie paddle (kitty paddle?) her way out of a bathtub in record time. Poor little thing -- she was so soaked and freaked out!

This evening, I drove down to Mike's school after work to watch him be Alex Trebek at an academic team meet! He did such a great job -- I'm so proud of him! After the meet, we went to dinner at our fav Chinese restaurant!

This week's This is Me journal was journal what you like about winter. If you've been paying attention, you already know!

And my daily cards:

My new classroom number.

My frustration of the week.

This sounds cryptic, but I promise it's nothing serious. :)

And Lisa is awesome! (Yeah, I think we knew that already!) I won an RAK from her blog -- cute, cute stuff!

And tomorrow is Friday! It's been a long week. Have a great weekend!
