This morning, one of the assistant principals said she was having a meeting with her teachers, and if it was my prep I should come. So I went to the meeting, and it wasn't bad as far as meetings go. She handed out raffle tickets, went thro... Read more

Monday, December 05, 2011      6 comments

Each month, a different teacher or department decorates the bulletin board outside the office at school. I've always taken December so that I can put up student artwork that includes not only Christmas but also Chanukah, Kwanzaa, and symbols of... Read more

DH and I were visiting BIL and his wife (they have sort of an on-and-off relationship, but are currently on) - at any rate, we went to the Philadelphia Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra on Saturday night (which was lovely - two of Beethoven's less... Read more

I want to be one of the people who holds a balloon rope in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. Think about it - it's a 2.8 mile walk in the parade. Not speedy, but good distance. You're holding a single rope - but it's attached to a 1... Read more

I had a pedicure appt yesterday at 3 - and I have lovely coral-ish red nails to prove it. My pedicure lady is only on island one week a month - she lives in FL but flies in for all of her customers. (I'm not sure how much longer this will ... Read more

I finished baking muffins for breakfasts, chocolate decadence for our anniversary tomorrow, a chocolate cake for a meeting at school on Wed., and then made kasha with portabello mushrooms and onions for dinner. Plus fresh strawberries with brow... Read more

I went to my pedicure on the wrong day!

Sunday, November 13, 2011      4 comments

This is when I know I'm stressed, or busy, or tired, or a combination of all of that. I was convinced my pedi appt was for Sunday, 1 PM. Turns out I'm scheduled for Tuesday at 3 PM!!!!! Which, of course, is on my Spark calendar. But I ha... Read more

Yesterday we had our meeting with the accreditation review team - they didn't say much one way or the other. Well, the head guy gave us a lot of positive adjectives. But he didn't say we passed the review, that they'd recommend renewing our ac... Read more

A few years ago, I had a field trip at school - I included a note to teachers, and asked my students to please have their teachers sign the note, to ensure that everyone knew the students would be on the field trip. One language arts teache... Read more

My last class yesterday painted primer on the plywood boards that we'll use for our murals. My first class today painted the other side of the boards - so my classroom was full of plywood that was wet with primer, and I was waiting for my next ... Read more

We went to dinner with friends tonight, celebrating a birthday of a friend who also just passed the bar (lawyer test for my out-of-the-USA friends). So this was a more-than-casual kind of evening. I wore a linen jersey gored skirt (in ... Read more

I woke up earlier than planned, so went to bkfst with DH. He was given an extremely small portion of home fries, and I only eat a small amount of mine (I like to eat them with the scrambled eggs, spritzed with hot pepper sauce) - so I have him ... Read more

Two years ago, my students and I worked on a mosaic mural outside the music building and auditorium. We worked indoors gluing the tile to tile mesh (I was recuperating from a car accident), then spent the spring tiling the wall. We didn't fini... Read more

I began my day with a mile or so walk around school - much of it while carrying a ream of paper, since I picked up my photocopying from the office as I was on my way. Then I spent 2 hours wedging clay - imagine 2 hours of kneading very heav... Read more
