Thanks, I Needed That!

'Tis the season for awards and although I know I'll never get nominated for a Golden Globe or an Oscar, I apparently rate highly enough to be a "Kreativ Blogger." Merci beaucoup to Kathy, Ann, Mardel, Dawn, Connie and Elle for kindly bestowing this honour upon me.

Right now, I am elbow deep in exam papers. First semester is at an end and the finals are being written. I'm not sure who dreads this time of year more - the students that have to write the exams or the teachers that have to mark them. Either way, it will be nice when the exams are finished, although I don't get much of a break before second semester starts. The last exam day is tomorrow, we have one free day to mark and then second semester starts on Thursday. There really is no rest for the wicked.

On the bright side, the countdown to summer vacation can begin in earnest now...

I'm glad we end the semester before Christmas so there's a fresh start (and a break!!) when the new semester starts. Although now I'm pretty tired & will be thankful for the snow day tomorrow (if it comes!)

ps...you totally deserve the KB award!!

Congrats!

And I've just nominated you again and gotten here only to find you already have it up. Always late to the party. You certainly deserve it many times over.

Oh, do I remember exam time. So, how many days is it until vacation?

Hi Shannon, I haven't left a comment before, although I've read your blog for over a year, and folowed your SWAP sewing with clammy hands. You have such style and elegance, reading your blog really makes me dream about the wonderful garments that could be... So I hope you're feeling better and less stressed soon, and let us share more of your sewing adventures! Greetings from Germany, Uta

Hi, you can add me to your nominations for Kreative Blogger. I may not comment but I definitely enjoy reading. Thanks.

I remember counting down the days till summer. I taught 32 years, retired, and have gone back part time after one year off. I only teach 3 days a week now. I taught 6th grade language arts for 18 years and dreaded grading their essays. But, I missed the kids and so I'm back.
