And then you get to prepare for all the "fundraisers" that kids will be doing soon. I HATED THOSE!!!! I used to give my kids money NOT to sell them. What a ripoff!

We used to sell candy. Now they sell EVERYTHING. Last year one class sold frozen cookie dough.

Helen Ginger said...

Oh, how well I remember the #1. Quiet. Peace. Writing time. Occasionally, even a nap.

More writing time! Oh and, like Helen said, maybe a nap.

Carol Kilgore said...

Naps . . . I'm not a napper, myself, but my live-in handyman would take one every day if he could.
