A Great Day!

June 7, 2007

Yesterday was such a great day! First, I got to return to my class after a couple of days off. I was surprised that I missed it so much. The supply teacher did a good job by the looks of it, but I always hate to leave my class if I don’t have to. [Keep Reading]

Newest Obsession

May 29, 2007

I sat down at the computer fully intent on writing something tonight. I ended up blog-surfing again instead. I wonder if it is because I am finding part three of my novel hard to write. Maybe it is a way for me to avoid writing. I don’t know. All [Keep Reading]
