Meet Me on Mondays

1. Crunchy or soft tacos?

Normally, I prefer soft, but here lately, I've been going after the hard, crunchy tacos.

2. Do you scrapbook?

I collect the stuff to make scrapbooks. I've made a few pages. I did an album for my parents 50th wedding anniversary that I think turned out nice. And I have a book of my son's travel baseball team when he was 12 and 13.

3. Do you take any daily medications?

Unfortunately, yes. I was taking 2 more than I do now so I'm happy that how many I take is decreasing and not increasing!

4. What is your favorite sound?

I have to say rain on a tin roof...but I don't have a tin roof. I like the way the rain sounds hitting the chimney cover. (Almost the same thing.)

5. Where were you born?

I was born in the same state that I now live.

Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's Back to Work I Go!

Spring break officially ends today. So what did I do?

Catch up on grading papers. Check. (I was out the Wednesday before break so I had a lot of papers to grade.)

Put grades on the computer. Check.

Go to exercise class in the mornings. Check. (Went Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings.)

Go to Zumba! Check, check, check, and check! (I got to go 4 times! Monday and Tuesday evenings, Wednesday and Saturday mornings! Wednesday was free because I won a pass from Monday!)

Clean refrigerator. Check!!!

Straighten work room. Check!!!!

Attend Future Teachers of America Convention in Nashville. Check! (I'm co-sponsor of our high school club and took our club president. No one else could go or wanted to go. We started the club last school year but had trouble getting it off the ground. Going to the convention was good for our president to see what the other clubs in the state do. She's going to do a presentation at our April after-school meeting.)

Prepare for next week. Not yet.

A word of note: Virginia Commonwealth University has just upset Kansas to make it to the Final Four!

I hope you have a great week!

Hodgepodge during Spring Break

Time to blog so here are my answers to this week's Hodgepodge.

1. Sunday was the first day of spring. So they say. Ahem.
What is your favorite outdoor springtime activity?

Walking and baseball!

2. Who would you want to come into your kitchen to cook dinner for you?

Bobby Flay and Rachel Raye

3. When did you last fly a kite?

Hum...probably when I helped C when he was about 12 years ago?

4. What topic puts you to sleep faster than anything?

Just about anything right now...

5. Which flowers do you associate with specific people, places, or events?

Roses: Valentine's Day
Mums: Mother's Day
Jonquils: spring

6. What significant historical events took place during your elementary school days?

Is she trying to figure out how old we are?!?!
In fourth grade, a man landing on the moon.

7. Do you swear? Do you pseudo-swear? (You know crap, shoot, friggin'?)

Never heard it called "pseudo-swear" but I have been known to say "shoot" and "crap" a time or two.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

You would think I would blog more during spring break; however, my desire to share is just not there. I have been reading some blogs, but not very many. I think my third period class is really, really stressing me out.

Plus I've been spending some time in exercise class. I have fallen in love with Zumba! I don't like to sweat but I will sweat for Zumba! (Maybe it's because of my third period class.)

Don't forget to link up with Joyce!
