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!

Spelling Test

Dear Internet,

I know how you hate when people get all mad about spelling and grammar on the internet. Heck, even I, a teacher, have the bad manners to not spell check before I post on my own blog. But there is something I have to take care of. <--- note the ending with a preposition! See? I am NOT a grammar snob!)

I spent the morning writing the introduction for the blog changes that will occur here in the new year. And I have to make sure that the internet knows this:

desert: the place with sand and the "dry heat"

dessert: what you have after dinner

Now here is what I tell my students.

desert: has one s because there is ONE SUN that heats the desert.

dessert: is Super Sweet so it has two s's.

Is it too much to ask that you remember the difference between desert and dessert? I think not.

Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go eat my dessert (a Cinnabon!) in the desert (where I live)

Have a super sweet day in the desert, internet!
