Yep, I'm playing hooky. I've got all the windows open - a front blew in last night - I've made banana bread, I've put the clothes out for the charity coming by to pick them up, I've put the clothes in the car to take to the cleaners when I go get lunch. I'm fixing to sit down to watch The Prairie Home Companion so it can go out in today's mail, and I'm going to play with Alex as long as I can before Nano.

And I'm feeling guilty. This is the first day I've taken off for myself, but I keep thinking of all the things I should be doing at school, like running off copies of the Halloween newspaper the kids wrote, working on the PTSO program, getting ready for my evaluation next week.

Must....stop.....and enjoy.....day.....

Glad you're taking a day for YOU. It is well-deserved.

Hope you had a wonderful day, Mary - and I REALLY hope nobody from your school saw this, eek!

Aww, Candy, thanks!

Queen-a, I'm not too worried about anyone seeing it. My grade level and 5th grade know why I'm not there, were making fun of me. Now if I was at the OLD school, I'd be worried. And I took a lot more days there.

How come days off go so fast, anyway?

Mary, enjoy your day off! You earned it and more, and you deserve it!

Aw, thanks, Olga! I did enjoy myself. I've watched 3 discs of Supernatural this weekend....and wondered why I'm dreaming of Sam and Dean.
