Day 26: Finally Spring Break

 It's Friday at 5:00 PM and the last thing I want to do is open my laptop but here I am.  

I mean, I have nothing to write about. School was the usual school. 

Last day before break, school. 

Kids are burnt out, school. 

Teachers are giddy, school. 

We had Family Friday! Virtual Family Friday is still a little bit nuts to me. Most of the parents in my class sit near their kiddos all day and know exactly what is happening. There are a few that aren't home and it was cool to see them zoom in from work. 

Could that be the silver lining of virtual learning? 

Parents that typically wouldn't make it to Family Friday can be there!

Then we had a writer visit. This very cooky guy that I thought was nuts and the students absolutely adored. He went through his presentation and I watched their faces and listened to their comments about Aliens and Monsters. 

Then there was Sean who was brilliant. 

God is powerful and will protect us from Aliens. 

I wish I remembered his exact words but that warmed heart.

    Oh my goodness, what a time to be a teacher! is this a weekly thing that happens or just today?

    And a cooky writer too?? Wow, you deserve a spring break! :)

    Thank you for sharing!

    1. It happens once a month and it's only for 30 minutes.

What could it be?

Your gift is downstairs!  That's what the text said.  He had mentioned this gift a few times.  He was dropping hints for the last few weeks.  But I didn't think too much about it.  He is a great gifter, gift giver, I don't know what it's called.  Anyway, he is my husband and he loves to give. No holiday or special occasion needed.  I went to the lobby. There were no packages on the shelf.  The mailperson was there so asked if he had it.   " Don't remember seeing your name" he said. He walked a box of packages over to the shelf. On the very bottom was the package. I was in a medium sized white box.  I tried to see the label but I left my glasses upstairs.  I squinted really hard.   CLARK! He got me Clarkpads!  I ran to the apartment and video called him.  Clarkpads!   Then I opened the box and they were purple.   These might not mean anything to the average person. But this is huge.  Some people learned to cook during The Lockdown. We learned ho

Day 3 Who am I?

We always read Winn Dixie. I love the part when Opal asks the preacher to share 10 things about her Mama because she is 10.  I am 45. 45 is a BIG number.   I was going to share 45 things about myself  but I think I'll  add the digits.  9 is more reasonable.   So here are nine things about me and my life. 1. I am a native New Yorker born and raised in Manhattan.  2. I'm right ✋ handed.  3. I'm a former runner. I ran over 30 races after my 40th birthday.  4. I am a bulldog mom. My baby is Bella. You will hear a lot about Bella.  5. I am a wife,  mom, stepmom and grandmother. 6. I love the outdoors! 7. A perfect date with my husband would be cruising on our electric unicycles through the city.  8. I get to teach some pretty cool kids.  9. I'm an omnivert. I can be the quietest or loudest person in the room. 


Those are my toes.  The blue covers, the not so cute, feet that used to be my friends.  If I wanted to run. I ran.  If I  wanted to jump and they would obediently jump.  But now they sting like lightning when ever they begin to zoom.  So, here I am, sitting, chatting, reminiscing about the feet I used to have.  Hopeful for the feet I might have soon.
