So Much to Do!
Here in NY we get a week off the week of President's Day. Before I became a homeowner, I would be spending this week at some tropical locale. Now, that I am married to this money pit, I have to work my behind off on freelance teacher stuff.
I bought this house thinking I could do it all myself; I don't need any man to start my life. Well, I have to say I am a tiny little thing and I cannot do it all. Thank God my dad and my brothers live close by! I cannot even carry the Costco cat litter into my basement with out dropping it down the stairs. And with all that snow we had last month, my roof started leaking! My brother had to come over and chip the ice off of it!
I would love to be able to afford to fix all the broken things here, hence this vacation of work. I do have to say though, that I love creating and coming up with new ideas. I am so happy to have this time off to work. The problem is I have three projects going on at once and I am easily distracted! My new book 20 Super Spelling Centers is due to Scholastic on March 1st, I am teaching a course on guided reading and working on TPT packet to give out to the participants, and I am trying to compile my Letter Writing Unit for TPT because I start that when we get back with my students.
So stay with me this week and at the end I will hopefully be posting some great stuff. Also, if you happen to know any smart, hunky, single men in their thirties send them my way!
