Back from the retreat



The retreat is over, and things are back to normal, such as it is. I had an absolutely wonderful time. Whenever I called home and spoke to my sister, she said things were going great. The one time my husband answered things didn't sound so rosy, but I think it was just a matter of perspective.

Getting away for a weekend was the best thing I've done in months! There was a lot of silliness, chatting, eating, chick-flick watching and even actual full-fledged conversation. Everyone there was a teacher or former teacher, but I managed to stay off the topic of special education for the most part.

I made a little scrapbook for the boys with pictures of them and very short sentences describing the pictures.

It's good to be back, but we are having some new sleep, or really non-sleep, issues, so it's difficult to blog coherently.

A big thank you to my husband and my sister for letting me get away and goof off!

Hey! I'm glad you had a great time! It really is nice to get away, isn't it! I'm back from my retreat as well. We are going out for supper tonight to finish off our day...

All in all, it was wonderful. I got a massage, full night sleep, finished my book and even got a haircut. Needless to say, DWAM had a full day!

By the way, I am "supplementing" my blog and creating a second one. I have a few teachers and family that visit my blogger one and now I sort of feel like it restrains what I can talk about. So I followed suit of a couple of other bloggers and set up a private one at Vox. I am slowing trying to get word out. Email me if you are interested in visiting...
