Weekend Rewind

Here lately I haven't felt like doing much writing.

April has been C-R-A-Z-Y!!!  Just this month I have had to meet with visitors observing our school for accreditation, complete paperwork required for special education students/meet with parents, had parent teacher conference night, attend workshops-this was just school duties.  I have also been apartment hunting for daughter #2 and work on graduation 'stuff' with daughter #1 and kept grandson for a few nights.  I am tired this month!  Thankfully, the weather hasn't been too warm to enjoy-a reason I have been able to complete the paperwork-oh I forgot to mention completing our dreaded TAXES!!

We did find daughter an apartment last week-:)

This will be her home for three years.  Moving in three weeks-so I have rented an U-haul-to move in one day.  I did hear this was also the weekend of college graduations-so.. I expect heavy traffic and many headaches on this move.

Another project is still a work in progress-our bu…

Wednesday hodgepodge

1. April showers bring May flowers...what have you been showered with this month?


2. What is the nature of compassion?  Is it learned or innate?  Can compassion belearned?  If you're a parent is this something you've purposely sought to instill in your children, and if so how?

Compassion is something I have tried to instill in my daughters, and I do believe I have succeeded in this area.

3. Do you prefer to watch romantic comedy or romantic drama...or are you rolling your eyes saying bring on the action flicks?

I prefer action flicks.  Very few times, do I like romance movies maybe it is because I know hub will never be that romantic!

4.  It's April which means baseball season is officially upon us here in the US of A. Humphrey Bogart is quoted as saying "A hot dog at the ballgame beats roast beef at the Ritz." Agree or Disagree?

Agree -Gotta have a hot dog at a baseball game!

5. What's something in your community or city that needs fixing or improving…

Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. April 15th is the deadline for Americans to file their state and federal income tax returns.  What's a job you do on a regular basis that could be described as 'taxing'? 

The end of the year-which is rapidly approaching-paperwork for school teachers.  There is so much paperwork at the end of the year that no one really knows.  Please just let me finish teaching before taking those rigor tests!!

2. I'm participating in the April A-Z blog challenge, and the Hodgepodge happens to fall on Day O this week. In keeping with that theme...olives, onions, oysters, okra...of the foods mentioned, what's your favorite O food?

Oysters-I love any type of seafood!

3.  What is something memorable you experienced as a child that your own children (or future children/nieces/nephews) will not get to experience? \

Feeling safe!

4. Term limits for our elected officials...your thoughts? 

Yes-if the elected officials are doing a good job-nothing to worry about, right?

5. On April 18th, 177…

Weekend Rewind

I can't believe we are in the middle of April.  I feel like I have been in a whirl wind lately.

The weather has been nice!!  Yay!!!  There for a while I thought, winter was never going to leave.  The week of Easter it snowed-yep school was closed for two day prior to Easter.  Then the fourth of April as I was leaving school, it was sleeting-so a big shout for some nice weather.

Last week was a long week for me.  We had special visitors to school on Tuesday-special visitors are  people who come and see if what we say we are doing we are actually doing.  Those of us in education know what I mean.  After being interviewed and observed by these special people, I had to head to a conference for the afternoon.  I awoke on Wednesday morning wondering what happened to Tuesday-Tuesday was a blur for me.  Now, I wonder what happened to the rest of the week.

Hub and I grabbed a quick bite to eat on Friday and rented a movie to watch.  I fell asleep during the movie.   I do vaguely remember…
