We so had that last night.  It was a mess.  Glad it's gone through.  Today is beautiful, about to get out of work here and enjoy it a bit.  Only a 9-12:30 day, but I still have piano kids from 4-5 (short night there too usually another hour)

Feeling rather frustrated at school this week.  Disappointing commitment from students and families regarding performances.  Just feels like I'm working twice as hard as the kids lately.  And I will have to take the blame when they don't perform up to standard.  Not as bad as some of my public school counterparts would, I'm sure. Ready for this whole spring and all it's events to be over with.

Thankfully, sunshine and blue skies today and it's almost warmed up enough to go without a coat.   But the earth is rolling again.  2 earthquakes today -- the last one about 10 minutes ago.  And since they're shallow ones, they sound like explosions or something crashing close by.  This one did shake a couple of pictures on the wall.  

Hope everyone is doing ok otherwise.

Same here, lots of rain and windy! The pump in the basement has been working overtime. Had a cleaning job yesterday and cleaned my own house today. Sounds like a neat gift for your mom, bet she will love it.

Oh...but they are Sue. But apparently we aren't allowed to dock their grade any more, and need to offer some kind of alternative assignment. That being said, even if they do the assignment, they won't receive the full credit for what they missed. Small punishment only. Not in my day in HS. You missed a concert, you couldn't get more than a D for the quarter. But that's not fair anymore. Whatever...it taught us and our parents responsibility. We didn't take the family to watch little sister cheer in a big tournament if someone else had a concert. We didn't schedule to take the SAT the same day as a concert. Seriously? Can you hear me screaming through the computer screen?!?!?!
