Turned down a cupcake today
That says it all doesn't it?? Actually, I accepted the cupcake (because it was from a student), and left it sitting on my desk -- then threw it away. In other words - that's even bigger, because I would easily have waited until there was no-on... Read more

Off track - Getting back ON!!!!
I have been off track for about 2 weeks now. Nothing major, just not being careful, and not working out. The end of the school year always does that to me because it is just so crazy and hectic getting all the paperwork done and grades in, and... Read more
End of the school year does me in!!
