~ I spent yesterday at the Central Office for another PD. We're chiseling down those 30 hours we need, bit by bit! It was a good day...we got a lot accomplished!
~ Next Thursday is my "go back to work week". We have 2 optional PD's on Thurs. & Fri. After that, I'll only need 4 more hours. I'm going to try to get a couple in through some freebies on the internet.
~ Laika was spayed yesterday, and CH wanted her dew claws removed. It's going to cost more to have those claws removed than it did to have her spayed, with the bandages, antibiotics, and pain meds. She was so happy going into the vet's office; I feel a bit guilty about what she went through when she got there!
~ Turns out ASHA (The American Speech-Language Hearing Association) is looking for a few bloggers to cover the national convention in Atlanta in November. They're giving free registration for the lucky few that are chosen. Our special education coordinator got our hopes up at the end of year with the "maybe there's a chance I can pay for some of you to go", but with budget cuts it doesn't look like that's going to happen. I've never been to the National Convention before, so I've put in my application. I don't think it's too promising, though, since my blog isn't a "professional" blog. But, it never hurts to try, right? The most they can do is tell me "no"!
~ We had (what sounded like) a pretty bad storm last night. The hickory nuts were hitting the roof near our bedroom like crazy! I expected to get up this morning and see a lot of branches in the yard, but it was pretty clean when I let my old girls out. I guess all of the dead branches had already been blown out by the last storm.
Have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to link up your frags to Mrs. 4444!
