Well, that last rant seemed to quiet down the comments a little on my blog. Ah well, I needed to get it out of my system :). You’ll all be happy to know that they turned the air conditioners on on Thursday morning after our vice principal spent an hour in the downstairs office. Continue reading

Currently Reading and Listening to…
Too many things at once! I used to make it a rule to only read one book at a time but with my current lifestyle I’m finding that that is just not working anymore.
Okay – I’ve started a blog. I’ve resisted for a long time for numerous reasons, all of which have become excuses rather than real reasons. Continue reading
