Tonight was book group. OH, how I love my book group. A unique group of women ages 26 to 46, from soft spoken to outgoing, witty, fun, brilliant women. Each book group brings colorful conversations that begin with the book and spread out over our days, our careers, and our lives. We share, we laugh, we eat... I just love my book group... did I say that already?
Tonight Megan hosted book group. Her beautiful, comfortable, inviting home was the perfect setting for the "secret-recipe" Italian feast she prepared for us. Over dinner, dessert, wine, and then just over the empty table ,we discussed angles of our book (which is a worthy read and very thought provoking - if you have a book group, this one will get you talking for sure!). Megan - it was a wonderful evening, the meal was wonderful, the book was an excellent choice, and you are a fabulous hostess!
(from here on out this post will be very random...)
I had tears come to my eyes when I got to Megan's and I went to put my bag on her bed and saw the bassinet set up next to her bed, ready for tiny baby Jack. I am so excited! Her shower is Sunday and I can't wait!
Saturday is our photo-shoot... more info on this to come, but I am so excited!
Bunko was scheduled for Friday, but is cancelled due to the tornado. It was upgraded to an EF-4... over 800 homes damaged and over 100 totally demolished. Her neighborhood (along with SO SO many others) is closed and guarded 24-7 by State Troopers... word is they will be there for the next 2 weeks, so no Bunko even though her house is actually okay. Daily I drive past the devastation and damage... so disturbing when it's in your town... so different than seeing it on tv. Sad.
This week has been TCAP testing! Any teachers know this means stress and EXTREME boredom! lol. I would SOOOOO rather be teaching. 4 days of staring at my kids while they test is about all I can take! Some people get all worked up about it... I don't so much... I figure if I have done my job, that's all I can do. This might sound bad, but at this point they either know it or they don't... I'm not a big believer in cramming! lol. Anyway, this week has been super S-L-O-W because of the testing.
Well, this was going to be a short post, but it's getting longer and more random by the second (that's what exhaustion does for you! ha!). So, I'll go now and hope that each of you are having a wonderful week and looking forward to kicking off the weekend!!!!
