Spring Break has officially begun!


I’m done! I’m done!

All of my own work has been turned in, and I’ve graded and returned my student's portfolios. All I have to do is enter their grades (this is done electronically). Spring break LIVES! Woo hoo!

I have lots to do this break, mostly of the fun kind. Some of the possibilities include (not in this order):

*Preparation for next term's teaching (I’m teaching WR 121 again)

*Gardening

*Going to at least one film (theater variety)

*Catching up on Grey School work (classes to write, studying to do)

*Working on my Gargoyles book

*Finishing three book proposals for New Page

*Cleaning up the family room—it needs a good post-floor vacuuming. (I’ll probably do this on Tuesday, when Ernie is at the vet having his teeth cleaned)

*Lunch with Amanda

*Lots of reading—for fun, rather than by assignment (imagine that!)

*Walking—every day

*Doing my taxes (ick)

*Catching up on paperwork

*Watching some DVDs here at home

*Sleeping!

The above may not sound exciting to y’all, but after the hell and chaos of the past weeks, it sounds like heaven to me.

Scattered through this email are a few photos of my WR 121 students, geniuses all. (Truly!)

How are you spending your spring break? Even if you don’t have an official one, it's spring, after all!

CUTE pics of your CUTE students! :)

Every day is a spring break for me...

I think you'd really like "The Historian" by Elizabeth Kostova. It's long but I found it a fast read and is contains fascinating history about Vlad the Impaler (Dracula) and all those mysterious countries' histories.
