Hi, there.

I'm still around, just really busy with school. Our brand-new building is beautiful, but my air conditioning doesn't work and I'm still getting used to the seven periods a day (as opposed to four 1.5 hr-long blocks). I'm hoping to get caught up with grading this weekend, which would give me more free time for playing on the Internet. I'm still posting (sporadically) on Twitter, but I do have a bunch of books to review and new recipes to post, so those will hopefully go up in the next week or so. Congrats to all the BBAW winners! Hopefully you'll all be hearing from me again soon. :)

Is anyone else reading Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters? I'm loving it! I'm only a few chapters in, but it's so much fun. I loved P&P&Z, too. It was pretty much 75% Austen, 25% zombies. S&S&SM is more like 25% Austen, 75% sea monsters, and it works. Poor Colonel Brandon with his face tentacles...

Jessi I totally hear you about being busy! Today has been my first day this week that I can hop on line (and even now, I'm on a time schedule).

Glad you are lovin' your new building. We have 7 periods this year too and man alive do I feel behind.

It's crazy, right? My kids are always grumbling because I can't get through as much in a day as I'm used to, and I usually talk right up to (and on occasion, past) the bell. This year has been a lot better attention-span-wise, though. I think giving them less time in class keeps them from getting bored and cuts down on the problems. Of course, it also makes my planning period that much shorter, too... :)

Hi! I landed on your blog because we both signed up for Dreadlockgirl's readathon in the coming weekend! I am curious who else is participating so I thought I'd do a little blog tour ;-).
So have fun with the readathon. I'm so looking forward to it!
