Almost too tired to blog

I thought about not posting tonight and just going to bed. But then I thought my my wonderful, faithful readers and good friends that would wonder what was wrong if I didn't post. I don't what I'd do without my wonderful readers. I sometimes wonder what they get out of reading my mostly dull blog, but I'm thankful none-the-less. I have such great blog friends and how I hope and wish that some day I will get to meet them face to face.

So for my day. I got to sleep in only slightly this morning. I got to the convention around 8:30 and went to a session at 8:45. It was o.k., but nothing earth shattering. It was mostly a gripe session about the comm. app. class we teach that is designed for 11th & 12th graders but is being taught to 9th & 10th graders that aren't ready as well as 8th graders which makes no sense at all. Then we had a our first general session followed by an outing at a working ranch. We watched cowboys practice roping, had lunch (huge burgers), and listened to cowboy poetry. It was interesting. Then we headed back to the convention, had a district meeting and then I decided to skip the interest group meeting as I had no inclination to get involved in a session full of those interested in argumentation and debate. Instead a group of us went to a bookstore that was having a moving sale. I got two books on sale for 2.99 each. Then we went out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. The food there is decent, but it's not my favorite place. I am sad to say that my favorite mexican restaurant has closed down. We had some good girl talk and I'm starting to fit in with some of the other teachers. I am at least hanging with some women that are around my age. After that, it was back to the convention for a very long TFA meeting. I was surprised by the fact that it was quite controlled this year... so far. I won't make it to the second meeting, however, since it is the homecoming game and I want to go to that. I got home just a short while ago and peeled my jeans off. (I do mean peeled... they were a little on the tight side... but Richard would have loved how I looked in them.) Now I'm dealing with starving animals so I have to quit blogging soon in order to feed them and then head to bed myself.
I just wanted to give you a quick update and then I'll be off to la-la land.

I hope your weekend is a time of relaxation and catching up on things that you actually want to do instead of things you are required to do for your "job"

Perhaps if you get to be closer friends with some of the other teachers, they may know of some great single men? It's worth a shot. Of course, you don't want it to be your idea. It may take some time.

Have a great weekend!
