Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's a party over at Blog Party!  Giveaways galore and a lot of new blogs to check out.  Since I am having a lazy Saturday, I thought I'd join in.  If you'd like to join in, click on the banner above.

Prizes I'd like to win?  How in the heck do you choose??  OK.  I'll go with US 39, 40, or 49.  I chose 2 weekends in hotels and a Starbuck's coffee card.  That hits a couple of my loves:  travel and coffee.  There are dozens of things I'd love.  I can't narrow it down any more.  Tupperware? Need it.  Target or Visa card?  Who doesn't need it?  You get the picture.  It all sounds good to me!

If you're new here, this is my life in a nutshell:  wife, mother (two girls 29 and 27--who don't need me too much these days!), high school teacher, and puppy trainer.  That last one is a reach.  He's training me.  I grew up in the country and now live in a small town that was nearly destroyed by a tornado two years ago this June.  I love my family, my students, the midwest, coffee, books, music, movies, photography, and champagne.  I'm sure there is more, I just have a short attention span today.

I'm off to visit some of the blogs. And yes, I am avoiding cleaning house and/or grading research papers.  Procrastination really is my middle name!

I am also trying to avoid school work, yard work and well, just work in general. It's a gorgeous day! Enjoy!!

LOL. Thanks for the comment. Hope you are enjoying your lazy Saturday. I mostly am. I'm at work but I get to do whatever I want unless I get a phone call. So that's nice ;-)

Dropping by from the UBP. I know what you mean about puppies. I walked into a pet store once with a tiny little precious Labrador retriever puppy and a man looked at me and burst out laughing. I didn't know what I was in for, but he sure did! Hope you're having a great weekend.

Gotta love another procrastinating mom and teacher. Looking forward to reading more of your blog.
