The war is won!!!

Well, I may have lost a couple of battles along the way this week but in the end I won the war!! I went to the library first thing yesterday morning and blocked out time to bring the two "hard" classes in for some work. Then I sat down before each class and told them how it was going to go down. I had them do a 2 page report. They weren't happy campers. They did the papers and wanted to know if they were going to get credit for the work. I was honest and told them I wasn't sure but they had two choices...either work on the paper or go to the office. They worked. :)
Thank you for all the words of encouragement!!! Today is Friday and I woke up so happy to know this would be my last day for these classes!! My boss wanted me to sub next week but I begged off. I seriously need a quilting day. It has been much to long since I had one of those. I am going to Walker Jen's on Tues to quilt and talk and laugh. Sigh!!! Aren't those days like bubble baths??! Just wonderfully relaxing and comforting!!
Have a great day everyone!

Hi Owens family! I was thinking about when you guys all came down to our lake house and we rented the boat and went island hopping. That was one fun week. I know it has nothing to do with your post, but I was just thinking about you this week. Sure wish you guys lived closer. Jeff
