Reasons I'm Thankful:
*Today is my Friday: the last day of school this week. Can you say, "YA-HOOOOO??!!" Oh, and if you think you're hearing that in the distance, it's me! We worked evenings last week for Parent/Teacher Conferences, so this is our reward: a three day weekend. I have been more than ready.
*My grading should be complete by the end of the day today. I hate having papers hanging over my head. I really hate having papers hanging over my head going into a weekend.
*Tomorrow, I am headed for a Lake Weekend with two high school friends. This get-together has become a yearly ritual. One friend, B, bought a lake house a couple of years ago. She is gracious to host our weekend. I've done a little cooking for this year's trip. I'm thinking there will be hot tub time, hiking, wine, shopping, and lots of talking. I can't wait for our catch up time!
*The Mr. is headed to the U football game with K. A colleague of mine will be using my ticket. He and the Mr. share a love of sports.
*The weather has been cool, windy, and very Halloween like. I love it! I've packed away the flip flops, shorts, and tank tops; and I've dug out the long-sleeved shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets. I haven't worn a coat yet, but we are getting closer.
*I'm taking Halloween candy to my classes today. I'll send them out the door with a little sugar; in other words, they aren't getting their sugar high until after they leave my class! (You don't teach for 32 years without learning a little something!)
If you don't hear from me for a few days, I'm pretty sure I will be sitting on a lakeside deck with a glass of wine and two old pals.
