Definitely the BIGGEST news and what has consumed my last two weeks would be my computer troubles. We are still not sure what happened. Power surge or my pc shortened out and also fried my printer too. Either way my world was turned upside when last week.

But, I am now the proud owner of a new computer, monitor and printer. This was my work setup so I was in a huge panic. It was a sleepless, lot of praying and pacing the floor week.

Everything is back to normal now and I am back working. Praise GOD!

I also had tons of work to do this week for two online classes I am taking. Thankfully, I did have my laptop through all the computer craziness. I am taking two “fast paced” 4 week classes. It was definitely NOT the best time to sign up for these. And, to be very, very honest.. I am a TERRIBLE student!

Going back go school for any reason is not in my future. Both of these classes are for CEU credits to renew my license. My thoughts were it was better to do it online than to give up 2 weeks of my summer.

  8. ok I think I did this linky party may be too advanced for me as I am not understanding (could be my age) also I cannot find the linky button code...again, must be my age as I am not as comp literate as you all...figure I must start this blog linkys gig somehow...

  9. I LOVE this linky idea! It's so fun to read about each others' lives; teaching and non-teaching stuff! Happy Holidays!
