I would like to jump on the complaining-about-not-having-the-day-before-Thanksgiving-off train. I wrote three office referrals on Wednesday because the kids were all kinds of wound up about the impending holiday. I left work at exactly 3:10, ran home to pack and left Baltimore at about 4:45. I arrived at the Cape (Cod, that is) at about 3 am. I am exhausted. I need to do some major lesson planning for the coming weeks. The first part of my Hopkins portfolio is due on Monday (resume, professional goals, educational philosophy).
BUT, Monday is also the day that I can upgrade to an iPhone. So, it's all good.
