Valentine's Day Weekend

Well, I've never been a fan of Valentine's Day, even when I did have a Valentine. This year I solved the problem by doing housework. I cleaned my downstairs, did laundry, vacuumed the stairs. I didn't get to finish the upstairs, but I got some done. I went to Mass with my parents and we went to my favorite Mexican food restaurant. YUM! Then I watched Degrassi from Friday. I'm finally starting to like the newer cast but I still miss a lot of the characters. I used to watch the show when I was in middle school (it was on PBS and it was called Degrassi Jr High). Another point to prove that I'm becoming more and more of a middle schooler because I have worked with them for such a long time. I think that is part of the reason why my students like me.

I saw my grandmother this weekend and she was lucid this time. We played dominoes and she did a pretty good job. We got clobbered by my parents but we still did all right.

Tomorrow is President's Day. We have to work without students. Shannon and I are planning on putting up some posters and material on these flannel boards in the teen lounge area we have created.

I hope that next Valentine's Day that my daughter will be home with me. I hope that next year at this time we'll be getting ready to watch The Amazing Race.
