And...SURPRISE!

I normally don't write random posts without a specific theme pertaining to books, but somehow I have wound up with 2 in the same week.

Today has been pretty chaotic. I woke up with a screaming migraine, which wiped me out until noon. Then I was hit with a shocker of a phone call.

You all remember that I am supposed to start long-term subbing starting in January? Well, I am starting tomorrow (Thursday). The teacher I am filling in for was ordered to go on bed rest, so I am going to be finishing the last couple days before the students' winter break. It is overwhelming, but I'm sure I'll be fine. It just happened a few weeks earlier than I thought. :)

Anyway, I will be teaching and getting in the swing of things Thursday and Friday. I found out today that Friday is the last day before break (not a day next week), so I am sure that it will be chaotic both days as the students get ready to go on break and I try to adjust. But, it'll be fun and I am looking forward to it.

So, if I am a little absent the next two days, I apologize. I am supposed to be a stop for the Classics Circuit tomorrow and I haven't had a chance to finish the book, let alone write a post. I was planning on finishing it today. I am planning on writing a post tomorrow afternoon, so if you are for that, come look around in the late afternoon early evening tomorrow. :)

Happy Reading everyone!

  1. Well, my friend, you will find out all the joys of teaching as you sub these few days! I'll be thinking of you. The best part is the children's joy. And, in some ways, that's the hardest part, too. ;)
