I guess it's because it is the end of the quarter that I have been so busy this week. I'm not sure what it is, but right now I finally have my feet up for what seems like the first time this week! It's been one of those late-home-from-school weeks that I really have been trying to avoid since the new year. I didn't do very well this week.
Yesterday afternoon I did take a break and our whole second grade team met right after school at Brio's restaurant just to hang out and have appetizers. We have such a sweet team of ladies. They are so much fun and we all get along really well. It was a rainy, dreary day and this restaurant has lots of couches and cushy chairs, so we just pulled those up in a circle and sat and ate and gabbed for a couple of hours. It was fun. Here are a few of us...three teachers weren't there yet when I took this picture.
Tonight we kept our niece, Bailey, for a little while just to give Britney a break. She was so cute. We took her to the pet store to look at the puppies and kitties and birds and fish. She was wide-eyed!
Then we took her out to dinner where she happily sucked on lemons all through dinner. (She LOVED them!) Then it was on to the toy aisle in Wal-Mart while I did a little shopping. She just talked up a storm and had the best time!
I watched the TiVo'd version of American Idol late last night. I've been trying to keep up with it. That is definitely the best way to watch it. You can watch in half the time! Anyway...I saw that Alan Osmond's son, David, was one of the contestants!
If you know me, you know what a big Osmond fan I was when I was growing up. So I hope he does well! I thought he really did have a good voice. Speaking of Osmonds, I heard Donny Osmond is going to be on the next Dancing With The Stars. I wonder how he will do??
And since we're talking about celebrity news...I heard on The View today that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is pregnant with her third baby. She is my favorite co-host on that show. She will have her hands full now since her baby is only a little over a year old!
Well, back to work now. This is the stack of papers I have sitting on my dresser waiting for me to grade them.
How did I get this behind??!! I think I'll bring them with me to bed and catch up on my TV watching while I get the job done!
