GLAD this week is over


Dropped my taco on the floor, forgot my cup on the way home, the boy and his new girlfriend decided they were moving too fast and now are just friends, but friends who are going to the zoo together tomorrow. Woke up after two hours of sleep with what I guess is a pinched nerve in my thumb, couldn't find Tylenol, so took aspirin which is now stuck in the back of my throat, not doing me any good.

On the way home from taking the boy to band practice, I stopped at JoAnn Fabric to look at yarn. Mom had some pretty afghan patterns, and they do have some pretty color yarn...I've resisted so far.

SARA will be meeting at a new Chinese restaurant called Wah Kee. No one thinks it's funny when I call it Wacky's.

My classroom and the teacher's lounge are FREEZING, so I've been taking my work outside, sitting on the steps and thawing out while the kids are at PE. Today I was grading papers and listening to TWILIGHT on my iPod. Two second graders came by, stopped, looked at me.

"What's that?" one asked.

"I'm grading papers."

"No, the WHITE thing."

"Oh, my iPod."

"I WANT an iPod," the other said.

"I had to wait till I was 41 years old," I told her.

"What are you listening to?" the second one asked.

"A story." I decided not to mention the vampire bit. "About a girl whose parents are divorced and she goes and lives with her dad."

The second one nodded solemnly. "That's a true story."

"I read it," the first one said, just as seriously, and they turned to walk off.

"I read it, too," I heard the other one say.

TOO cute.

I FINALLY finished Midnight Moon, which was suitably creepy. Now to decide what to read next, since Hidden Moon hasn't come yet.

I read the first in this series - it was great!

So many choices!

I have a secondary romance for my small town story, and I think I have a backdrop. I'm working on the first sentence. Oh, and I think I'll use JDM as the hero again.

I'd recommend the Nora Roberts- it was a really good book. Some of the others are in my TBR pile too but when I'll get to them who knows?

Glad to hear your week's over. Mine isn't over till Wednesday-I've been in the office for four straight then today and tomorrow for some OT (nice money) then Monday and Tuesday like normal- gotta love holiday weeks. NOT!

Poor Mary.

I hope you're recovering this weekend and that next week rocks instead of sucks.

Thanks, guys!!! I picked Raintree, thinking it would be quick. It's pretty good, but not a fast read. And a spoiler is on the back blurb!

So far, this week is good but fast. And I'm TIRED!
