No Excuses I know.....

I am not a good blogger! Sometimes I think I am just too boring to write anything to keep any one's interest!

I thought my sciatica was under control and then a couple of weeks ago it came back full force! As I type this I am sitting on an ice pack on a cushion on my chair. It's been hard to sit for an extended period of time.

I've been reading a lot of Jodi Picoult books this summer. I'm on my sixth on (Keeping Faith). I have really been enjoying them all.

I have also been working of school plans. Those that know me (especially my school friends) know that I have OCD LOL! I typed up my plan book for the entire school year. It includes the books that three groups a day will be reading. I am so excited about this because all I have to do each year is print a new copy. Our reading program is divided into 6 units and there are six weeks in each unit. Oh, the things that make me happy.

I've also been meeting with my knitting group every week. We have all become good friends. I love our weekly get togethers.

I also like that I have been able to spend lots of time with Mackenzie this summer. She finally has said "grandma". I had to trick her into doing it though LOL!

Timmy has decided he is now a Star Wars fan. That is ALL he talks about. Hmmmm....other OCD'er in the family LOL!

That's my update. See you haven't missed much!

take care,
Dawn

Well, I, for one, definitely missed you.

Sometimes having OCD is a good thing. I'm certain it benefits your students.

Which Jodi Picoult books is your favorite so far?

And, May The Force Be With Timmy.

glad to see your post. I am sorry to hear about the sciatica - I hear it is so painful. As for being OCD - I say you are just a smart teacher that is well organized!
