My busy week

Yesterday I started a week's worth of school work.  The kindergarten teachers are meeting for four days to begin math curriculum mapping and revising our standards based report cards.  I know, I know...I live a wild and crazy life LOL!

I am getting paid for this time (and some time I am putting in next week) so I was thinking of using the money to buy a laptop for Tim.  I am selfish and don't like to always share mine LOL!  My desktop is on it's last leg I am afraid.  It over heats and shuts down a lot.  I'm sure he'll be needed to write reports and do research and it should get him through the three years that he will be there.  I use mine all the time so it will be hard to share.


On another note I got brave the other day and looked in the cabinet to see just how much of my corning ware was broken.  The big ones survived and I think I have three to replace.  Not bad.  I can live with that.  When I get a minute I am going to go online to see what I can find.


take care,
Dawn

Good luck with the curriculum planning Dawn. I know Tim would love a laptop, and it really is hard a lot of the time to have to share when several people use a computer for school/work.

Ah, you're a nice mother. I might get in that line - if you are in a laptop buying mood.♥

I'm so sorry to hear about the broken corning ware, Dawn. I have one piece without a top, or I'd send you some.

So sad to hear about your dishes. You might look at thrift stores, yard sales, Goodwill or Salvation Army. I always find nice stuff at Goodwill. I also buy stuff from Ebay if the price and shipping are the right. Good idea about the laptop!

Hi Dawn, Still working is a bummer but the money is a good thing. If I had kids and had to share my commuter I would not like it very much. I think getting Tim a lap top is a good idea. It might save you a lot of hassle.

I'm glad some of your corning ware survived. I hope you can find the broken pieces to complete your missing ones.

We are going on vacation for a week so I will see you when we return. Don't work to hard.
Love ya, Jeanne
