TSS - Spring Break bay-bee! (And Give Away)
I'm in a frenzy of *too much* *too much* so thank ye gods that it is spring break. Yes, folks. Spring break is not just for the drunken college students, but the weathered teachers also! I love my students; they know they are my "only kids", but man alive I'm looking forward to a week of peace, serenity, and ME-ness.
So let's keep this short and sweet!
Uh, spring break! :D We're going to peace-out and hunt some gators down in the Everglades. All right, only kidding. But we are going to bike Shark's Trail, which, unlike the name implies, we won't be seeing sharks, but tons of gators. (I admitted to D that I'm stressed about which books to bring along. She said - and I quote - "you only need one". Uhhhh?? How long have we've been living together??)
Track season just started too. Try-outs are going all right. Only one girl puked. But she's an 8th grader and a pro. She ran, puked, and then continued with sit-ups. Man, I wish I had that stamina.
After spring break it's Standardized Test Boot Camp. 'Cuz as much as I believe in education to teach students to think, my job is based off of standardized growth. *sigh* Politics sucks.
I actually posted! Are you ready for it?
Seer of Shadows - fun historical fiction for tweens...oh yeah, and there are ghosts!
B is For Beer - fairy tale? yes! love some Tom Robbins(!)(!)
Ceremony - magical realism that consumes and will definitely be on my top ten list of the year!
Who's joining me in the Read-a-thon?! It's approaching guys! C'mon. It's like an online slumber party!
Did you hear the news? I'm taking over the GLBT challenge. *biting nails* I admit, I'm a little nervous. I sorta think of Amanda as a super star. So following in her footsteps kinda makes me a little "Ahhhhh!" But she's awesome. And I know I shouldn't be as freaked as I am! So, if you've missed it. I'm looking for a co-host. Don't worry if you don't know what you're doing. A little secret ---- ME NEITHER!
I finally finished Atlas Shrugged! Booyah! Review will come up before Spring Break is over. Promise.
This coming week I only know of two definite's:
Wildthorn by Jane England and Skinny by Diana Spechler.
FINALLY.... I will have my first giveaway coming when I get back. 'Cuz I'm spring cleaning folks!
What's new with you?
