Happy Weekend and Spread a Little Sunshine

To tell you the truth, I've been feeling pretty guilty that lately, I've been a bad blogger...and worse yet, a bad blog commenter...  You see, I have been teaching on overload.  Along with my classes I have picked up another class from a co-teacher  who is on maternity leave.  At the end of the day, I am just plain tired... ....So yesterday, It was a pleasant surprise to find that Cathryn from Chile Cats had chosen me to receive one of the 'Sunshine Awards'.  Thank you for making my day!
After what seemed like a long and  crazy work-week, we were invited to spend the evening with good friends.  Dennis is a musician and band director at Central . Dennis and Scott have been playing gigs together for over 30 years.  Dennis is planning to take early retirement at the end of this school year.
His wife, Patty, is such a sweetheart.  She is an elementary school teacher...currently serving as a reading tutor in our school district.  They have 3 grown children and seven grandchildren.  We always enjoy their company.
I hope your weekend is shaping up to be equally delightful!

Congrats on the award. Well deserved. Time with friends is always a welcome break from those long and tough weeks!

I think we all are overwhelmed with all that is going on in our lives, from time to time. Glad to see you were able to spend a relaxing time with friends.

Congrats on your sunshine award! That's wonderful. And your weekend sounded nice too - with friends.

And I too - can totally relate - at times I get overwhelmed too!
