When the school year began, I promised myself that I was not going to bury myself in my work (because we all know it's never done) and instead I would carve out time to take care of myself and be more balanced. This week has been one for lots of great things amid the stress of trying to sell our house.

One of the best treats was that my cousin's second grader, Jack, is writing a play about the Green Bay Packers. I was honored that he wanted to share it with me. He was a little upset that he couldn't print it right there for me, but I assured him that writers often put their work aside for awhile and then go back to it and make any changes it might need. He'll be emailing it to me after he's made the needed revisions.

On the school front...we were very fortunate to have Kody, a high school senior, work with us three days a week for the last 6 weeks. He is participating in a special program at our high school for kids who want to be teachers. His last day was Thursday and we are going to miss him!
|Kody is going to be a wonderful teacher!|
Finally...can I just say that I am celebrating the Hallmark channel tonight as I get ready to buckle down and finish those progress reports that didn't get done last night. The lightheartedness of the Hallmark movies makes the mountain of work I have to do just a little more palatable. :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful upcoming week that is full of things to celebrate!
