working 9 to 9 - what a way to make a living.

okay - to be honest it was actually 8:45 to 8:45, but that totally doesn't work with the meter of the song now does it.

My little job is usually just that, a little job that fits nicely into my Mom-hood. You see, I spend my days (while the kids are in school) running here and there doing some reading tutoring - and then after school I work with a mentoring program and hang with more school kids. My own come along to the program some of the time and get to learn a lot of things that they wouldn't get exposed to in school!

This week? Well, Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss - and to celebrate let's have Literacy Night at EVERY school... (okay, so just two of them that I work at...) and since my official title is "Literacy Specialist" - guess who needs to participate/plan/help with literacy nights? Yep, that's me.

So if you don't hear from me all week - don't worry.

If I still haven't made an appearance by next week this time - assume I am taking FULL advantage of spring break .

If, by the following week I have yet to say something witty and amusing on some comment or (even better yet) here on my OWN blog - then you can call the police. Report to them that I've lost my sense of humor at least...

Pardon me now - I've gotta cram in a few hours of sleep tonight before the sun comes up and reminds me how glad I am that this job only lasts a few more months.

and don't ask me until at least April what I'm going to do with the rest of my life... isn't it a little early for me to know what I want to be when I grow up? I mean really, especially since I'm still under five feet tall :)

I think you should donate a Cozy for my fundraiser. And then all the old people at the nursing home can shun and mock the recipient of the lame, knock off Snuggie.

Have fun celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday! He's one of my fav's. And don't think about growing up! At least I have someone shorter than me! :)

My Dad is still a kid at heart. I don't think that we ever really grow up, we just get older.

Hooray for Dr. Suess!!! I'm planning on reading some of his books to my nieces and nephews this week to celebrate:)

Your spring break is NEXT WEEK?? Not even fair. I have to wait three whole weeks before I can sleep in every day and have breakfast in bed....

Wait....

Sorry, I hallucinated there a little bit. I don't even get breakfast in bed on Mother's Day. But my kids call Spring Break Mom's Break, and I order them around all week until they're anxious to get back to school! (Works for Summer vacation, too!)

Have a fun Seussical Week!

Totally understand!! As you can tell, with work and grad school, I never blog anymore! So glad for Spring Break so I can finally take a real break!!

Enjoy your break.
