Jill - you too. Hang on tight!
Stacy - hope the pants fit!
You are all doing great on baskets. I intend to do
I agree, Julie--I've never understood not trying or not doing the work. How the heck can you expect to have a "degree" in something if you don't do the work? It's students like that that make me think that they should wait a couple years untill they are more mature to be in college.
Now, this isn't the same thing, but I will totally admit that I stopped trying in a Literature class I had to take. The woman's expectations were ridiculous and finally I flat out just gave up. She even told me that I shouldn't be a teacher if I couldn't understand the content of her class. That's what made me stop trying but it was too late to drop it. We read Beloved in that class and I remember having to take a test, so I did it, but only answered questions with one sentence. When I was done, I think I sat there reading the book. In discussions, I just didn't answer the questions. Yeah, I know, I behaved like a fool with that class, but I was so irritated by her lack of help, that I just gave up.:catembarrassed:
Anyway, the plan for the rest of the day is that I am going to work on the cake. I am hoping dh will grill some pork chops on the grill--I have them marinating right now. The man makes some darn good meat on the grill! I am also going to work on the cake a bit more. I am hoping that using some ModPodge that says specifically it's for bonding paper to paper that the tiers will stick, but I don't know what else to use. Then I am going to try and finish up the medallion thingy that I am remaking for it. I was going to try and make a miniature wedding couple from my quilling stuff, but um, the way it went last night, it would probably be on the level of alien spiders. LOL...I can't master some of the "shapes" just yet, but I really should be practicing more.
Of course the Voice is on, so we'll be watching that tonight. I hope Mike and Molly is new tonight but I don't think it is.
