what a day. i went to the first of my three day class today. it was really hard for me to leave the fam, but i had committed to going to the class before heather's trip was planned. and quite honestly, its an awesome class. its a "motivate me to be a good teacher again" kinda class. i get done at 4, too. i survived. i was with all my (ok, not all, but a few of the really good ones) teacher friends all day, and they were patient and listened to all of my stories. i get a binder of lesson plans, all related to the core curriculum for the state of utah. and a huge storage tub that will store all of my "goodies" that i get. plus, even better, they have 12 packs of soda out all the time... so first thing this morning, i got the doctor. at morning break, i got the doctor. at lunch, i had a water. but at afternoon break, i got the doctor, again. hehe... 2 more days of naughty drinking and i'll go back to being good again.
