|The calm before the storm included finishing my syllabus.|
The school's theme this year is the "essential piece" idea.
|I painted my nails a powerful red in preparation.|
|This is the Sacramento Valley, viewed from the hills of|
Lincoln, at 5:00 in the morning. I saw two Perseid meteors!
|Ready to go!|
|A very tired teacher relaxing in her office after a successful|
|Birthday margaritas with Sarah at Chevy's.|
|I got sombrero'd.|
|Millie dug the sombrero, apparently.|
|Anonymous card at work. I'm glad I've joined, too!|
|I set up my new mini fridge in my office, great for keeping|
healthy snacks and plenty of water on hand.
|PEST stands for Parents E____ Supporting Teachers and|
it's a lovely thing to find something like this in your
mailbox. That card, by the way has been SPENT.
|Red pants, adorable (and comfy) ballet flats by Nine West.|
School lanyard hanging from my pocket.
|Just because the whole week is insanely busy doesn't mean|
I skimp on workouts! Did lunges and step-ups with these
bad boys, then leg-pressed 150 pounds.
|Sigh. It never lasts.|
|My birth state. I wear this shirt for workouts sometimes.|
|"Have a good day at work, Mommy!" I had to stop and take|
this pic as I left. She's so cute!
|Wore a new scarf on Thursday. Mom and Dad bought it for|
me in San Diego last week.
|The first of 900 of these that I will receive this year. I don't |
even have a show choir.
|And even if I did, there's NO WAY I'd put the girls in|
something this ugly.
