Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

for the past three days...

I am waking up before the alarm even goes off.

I am SKIPPING to the shower.

I am ON TIME for work.

I smile at Sparky this morning and proudly proclaim to him, "I LOVE MY JOB!"

(He looks at me kinda funny)

I get to work and enjoy teaching!

My 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders write marvelous works that I proudly display on the walls of my classroom.

I come home tonight, an uneasy feeling in the pit of my stomach...I am planning ahead for tomorrow.

It is THEN that I realize that the reason for my happiness, my sheer joy for the past 3 days:

I haven't had to teach 1st graders all week.

I mean - by themselves, they are cute. (Well, most of them) But collectively? Squirmy little bugs. Who eat boogers. And make noises with their armpits.

Tomorrow I have them once again because tonight is their music program. Thus, the music teacher will not be taking them from me anymore. I do believe it is time for the great countdown once again:

Days left to teach 1st graders : 14
