Life Lately

Confession:  I still have strawberries that I picked nearly a year ago.

Why?  I'm not sure
Perhaps because I don't eat jam and therefore have no need to make any.
Perhaps because I love to eat them fresh and once I freeze them I only use them in smoothies.
Perhaps because I chopped up a bunch of them and apparently have decided that since they are chopped up I'm not using them in smoothies and only in baking.

Anyways, guess who had every intention of making strawberry banana muffins to empty out her freezer of strawberries just in time to go pick fresh ones?

Yeah... that's not happening.

It was a rainy weekend so I THINK I only have science and social studies report card comments left (and looking over and fixing up my ELA and math comments).

I also hemmed a dress by hand because I wasn't willing to pay $20 to get it professionally done.  My job is professional enough (just don't look too closely at it).
I'm wearing the dress to a wedding in a couple of weekends from now so it needed to get done.

Otherwise, the week was not so great.

Let's just say I'm learning to compartmentalize work once I leave... which is hard because I often bring work home with me.

Confession:  I had a pet

That's right... had

I regret to inform everyone that my beloved Sushi has passed away to be with those great fish in the sky.

He will be lovingly missed by his owner... me
We will all remember him for his delightful home and his tree.
The fact that he didn't eat his food fast enough which made his water slightly dirty and me slightly angry
And that he loved to bury his head in his rocks.

He was probably always a little crazy.

There will be no memorial service because... he was just a fish.

My apologies... I never took a better picture of him.

Maybe, when I get a job for next year I'll get a new fish.  
His name shall be Sushi 2 (but I won't say 2) because Sushi is still a great name for a fish.
And maybe, just maybe, I'll actually bring him to my classroom.

Seriously though, I'm not too broken up about this.
As in I'm not at all.
I'm not sitting here with tears in my eyes and a pile of kleenex by my side.
