And if you're not already thinking that Emily is a very NICE person, let me tell you SHE IS. She didn't just draw one name out of the hat (that was me), she drew out two names. Kristie from Kristie Loves Books also won 3 books of her choice.
You should click on Emily's link and read about her mishaps at the Toby Keith concert. Very funny.
The other thing that made my day was how great my kids were today in school. Yesterday I felt like quiting. Yesterday was only the 2nd day! Today they were charming and I fell in love with everyone of them. There's only 7 right now and they are all in foster families. Life isn't always easy for them, but each one has special gifts that they are trying to use to make their lives better.
I've retired from teaching science so I'm only a 1/4 day teacher, which means I teach only one period a day. It's a rough life. I have to be to school by 1:00 and class is over at 2:10. For me, at this point in my life, it's a wonderful job.
And tonight I'm going to do measure and find out how many inches I've lost doing water aroebics this last week. I've attended 4 times now. I have 3 daughters living in town and they go, too. They get a big tickle out of their old, fat mom sticking to it for an hour. They also think it's pretty neat. I do too.
Can you blame me for relishing in the wonderfulness of the day? Besides the weather is ideal - clear, blue skies, temps in the 70's. Who could ask for more? Hope y'all or yous (as they say in PEI) have a terrific weekend.
