This Week’s Book Haul:
We had such a wild weather week in southwestern Ohio! Tuesday night into Wednesday morning was chaotic. Thunderstorms moved through, then around 2 am my husband and I’s phones started going off with a flash flood warning. The dogs were practically sitting on our heads because, while they aren’t scared of storms really, they are nervous. Then around 3:30 am the tornado sirens go off. At 4 am, another flood alert comes through on our phones. By this point I have realized that sleep is not happening. Trying to get to work the next morning was a challenge. So many roads were totally blocked by either flood waters or downed trees. Then, another storm rolls through when I’m about 1/2 way to work and it was raining so hard the rain was going sideways! Thankfully, I made it to work okay, and so did all my students. The tornado didn’t come towards us, and other than a swamp created in my back yard, there wasn’t any damage. Tuesday it was 78 degrees. A record high for February. Friday and Saturday, it snowed. Welcome to Ohio in the spring!
Wednesday was Ash Wednesday. So, we had Mass at school and received our ashes. This year, my Lenten promise is two fold. I am giving up ice cream and I am going to write 40 letters of thanks. So, today’s letter is to you, the readers and fellow bloggers! I am so thankful that all of you are in my life. I can’t believe I have found a community of people who are supportive, understanding, and above all, kind. Please know that you have had such a positive impact on my life! Being able to talk books, especially romance books, with people who understand a love of reading is such an enjoyable event for me. I love not being shamed for reading romance and knowing that lots of other people feel the same! So, from the bottom of my heart, know that I appreciate all of you so much.
I can’t believe its March already! I am behind in my reading because work is so busy. So many IEPs to write, goals to report on, interventions to plan, and, since I work with Juniors and Seniors this year, constant monitoring of graduation requirements and plans for graduation. My juniors have to score a certain number of points on tests in various subjects. This week I had to sit down with them and review their progress, discuss the tests they would have to retake, and set goals for the upcoming tests. Then most of my seniors had to have applications in to colleges this week, and so many of them were totally unprepared. And they have senior-itis so they are slacking off. This is causing some of them to have failing grades in classes they have to pass in order to graduate. I feel like I run around trying to put out a lot of fires! But, I love my job and care a great deal about my students, so its all good.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
