It never fails that in the month of March I ALWAYS get sick!!! This week was the End of Course Literacy test for the 11th graders. I had to proctor the test which means I get to stand in a room from 8:55 Am until 1: 15 pm. I can't read, no computer, I just get to walk around the room and make sure everyone stays on task. We do get to take breaks but it is a VERY VERY boring!!!! You have to follow all guidelines or you can lose your teaching certificate. During the test on Wednesday, I developed a fever. So there I was giving a test, running a fever and feeling like doggie doo. I decided to take 2 sick days on Thursday and Friday to get better. I stayed home, slept, ate, read and stitched. I am feeling wonderful!!! Going to go in my class tomorrow to grade! Lucky me!!!
While out sick, I pulled out my Victorian Village. I started and finished on Saturday night the Apothecary shop. I love the shop but I realized something, I HATE stitching bricks!!!! That was the hardest thing in the world. My next shop is the Ice Cream Parlor! YUM
I LOVED this show!!! I NEVER missed an episode. My friends and I would get together and watch it every week!!! When the 2 hour movie came out (2008) I asked Mark if he would get me the movie for Christmas. Instead, knowing how much I LOVED the series, bought me the box set. I watched season 1 over Christmas break. My sister asked if she could borrow it and I said ok...she kept it 6 months. I finally got it back in June, just in time for summer break. We had a cookout on July 4th, 2009 and my friend asked if she could borrow and watch them. I said sure, no problem. She brought them back on Friday of this week. Yep,,...she had them from 2009 - 2012. I had email and ask her for them. Mark told me that was kinda rude of me to email her and ask for them back. There has been some history and we haven't hung out with them for over a year and half....so was I wrong to ask for my DVD's back when I haven't even watched them myself???? I really DO NOT mind loaning my dvd's or books...but I think that people should give them back in a timely manner.
