First up… I wrote something elsewhere this week. In the spirit of collaborating with fellow teacher-librarians, I wrote a summary of why I do what I do. That may not be interesting to you, which is why I didn’t vaguely post a link in the hope of misleading you into clicking. (Can’t stand that practice in blogging).
However, April is School Library Month, so if you’re at all curious how I ended up doing what I do – or what it’s like – you can read it here. Feel free to share any thoughts/comments on that post, or in the comments here. Gotta love how linked WordPress is to make all that work!
It’s late Thursday evening. The weather has been up-down-all-around, and the classroom(s) I was in today had the windows open. My sinuses are exploding. Can you throw up a quick prayer in the interests of them improving? Thank you. I’m having that icepick-in-the-right-eyeball sensation. (Not my favorite).
IT’S BASEBALL SEASON! One of my favorite websites during baseball season is Camden Chat, where I can read everything I ever wanted to know and then even more stuff I couldn’t care to read about regarding my team, the Orioles. Maybe you don’t care about them. That’s okay. Here’s a picture from the exhibition last game. Yes, it rained. How can you tell? I had a blast anyway, and saw a bunch of legit Orioles!
Incredibly long week at school concludes tomorrow with an early release day. By definition, this means students leave 2 hours earlier but staff stay the full day. Consequently, our ‘resource’ classes are shorter than normal, so my Friday students will come to the library for a whopping total of 25 minutes. Consequently, they’ll likely be a little off the normal schedule. Consequently, we will likely read books aloud (littles) or have some typing/games type (olders). I can’t accomplish anything in 25 minutes…let alone when 5 minutes of that is lopped off for coming in/being seated/cleaning up/lining up/leaving.
Next week is Spring Break! I’m going home. Much will happen, wedding relatedly, including my shower. So fun times for all.
But first, the man and I have to spend all weekend at Engaged Encounter. I’m looking forward to it. I’m also glad it’s a new, two-day non-residential program they’re doing so there won’t be any staying in a fancy-or-non-fancy hotel room with a random stranger for three days. I need some peace and quiet. Plus, Mass!
They asked us to bring a snack to share. I’m bringing Cheez-Its, granola bars, and pretzel-peanut-butter sandwiches. Can’t hurt to bring extra, right?
(Feel free to pray for us and the other couples. Because marriage is a big deal! And also, because this introvert hasn’t had any non-people time in a while and my entire weekend will now be spent with…people. Yay, people.)
Question for the married women: what shoes did you wear with your wedding dress? Please share. I’ve already returned 2 pairs and purchased 2 more in the hopes of finding a pair that are comfy (first priority) and don’t clash (second priority) and don’t have a heel (tied for second priority). HAAAAAAAALP MEEEEEE.
It’s Wrestlemania weekend, y’all. Who else is watching on Sunday?!
Well, it is Wrestlemania weekend. FYI. Too tired to find a seventh thing, but trust me, there are many more folks who have well-crafted posts with an actual seven things. So if you feel you’ve been cheated, please do visit Conversion Diary!
