I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
This week my students were testing, so the week went by pretty fast, though was very boring. However, I made great strides towards getting ready for their end-of-the-year events, and feel better about everything. I also leveled my classroom library, which took an entire week, but my class library looks wonderful. On a personal front, I was suffering from anxiety a lot with everything happening, which I haven’t really dealt with much since October. Suffice it to say, I crashed early almost every night this week.
Friday night, my co-workers and I went to Happy Hour. I got really toasted, and had a great time. Great stress reliever! To sober up, a few of us went to see Captain America again. I’ve been wanting to do that since I first saw it, so I was glad I got the chance. Of course I started nodding off towards the end 🙁 At least I was sober enough to drive home. See… there’s always a silver lining!
On Saturday, I went to the Strawberry Festival in Oxnard. I haven’t been in years, and had a really great time. I’m still not brave enough to try strawberry nachos, or tamales, but I did eat a delicious pupusa (sans strawberries). I also had a frozen strawberry margarita, and strawberry shortcake. And of course I brought half a flat home with me. Aside from strawberry overload, I visited the Ring Around the Toezees booth, and bought myself a new stack of toe rings for my left foot. The set I wear on my right foot are great, comfortable, and I always receive lots of compliments on them. I think the new ones top the other set. I can’t wait to show them off this summer. I would show y’all, but I’m in bad need of a pedicure. LOL! Now, if only it felt like a true May in Cali, instead of the weird, cool weather we’ve been dealing with. Brrr!
