I'm late! But I have spring break to blame! And it's been a marvelous spring break. I have truly enjoyed every minute, and the best part is that it's not over yet. I still have the rest of today and all of tomorrow and my babies (eight and five) are at Grandma's house! Woo hoo! Oops, I mean I'll miss them tons - can't wait until they're back. :)
Here's my April Currently, (if you haven't yet - join in the the fun at Oh'Boy 4th Grade.)
As I said, kids are at Grandma's so I am enjoying some much needed peace and quiet. Hubby is watching a movie, and I'm, ya you caught me, blogging of course! I am headed to finish some last minute report card comments - I promise - soon!
Since we had the night off last night, hubby took me to Sagano's for dinner. We'd never been. It's a Japanese Steak House where you sit at a big table with a whole lot of other people and the middle of your table is a grill. At first I was uncomfortable with the whole lot of other people at my table thing, but a glass (or two) of wine took care of my concern. We had a blast. The chef cooks your meal right at the table, puts on a little show with his knives and throws some food around (it's hilarious). To top if off, the food was excellent! Even just as good on day two - yum!
I am not ready for spring break to end, but I am starting to panic slightly about how much my fifth graders still need to accomplish, and how little time we have left! Yikes!
Lastly, the hubs and I spent hours, actually days and days, painting our deck last August. It survived the cruel Michigan winter, and is looking beautiful in the spring sunlight. Now I just need some pretty new patio furniture to complete the package. Any good deals anywhere?
Oh yeah, and I just realized I never announced a winner from the Two Truths and a Lie linky. The winner is.............
Melissa - from Don't Let the Teacher Stay Up Late
High tech here - I put all the names on sticky notes, crumpled them up, and drew one at random. I'm convinced Melissa won because of her awesome name!!
#2 was the lie - while I did attend Alma College in Michigan, and it is home of the Scots, many of my friends headed to Scotland for a semester abroad, but I spent my semester away in D.C. - hence the journalism job on capitol hill.
