to answer the question

Students in my class today are writing about their best and worst moments of the past week. in an effort to abide by the golden rule, I will be answering the question today as well. I'll begin with the best (because I AM a true optimist). One of the best things that has happened to me this week has been that I began feeling a little less like I would puke or keel over at any second. This is because Sunday, the BEST day of winter so far (70 degrees!), I had to stay in bed all day, munching saltines and drinking 7-Up. Obviously, my sick Sunday would be my worst moment of the week. We also had some tornadoes rip through the area Monday night. Let me just tell you that tornadoes scare the hiccups out of me. Yes, I went to my mommy and daddy's house to weather the storms in their nice, cushy, out-of-the-elements-of-danger basement. Aw, the comforts of home!

Among the other best moments of my past week, I have been in contact with some long-lost friends. My students may or may not be too young to understand that sometimes you just lose track of friends you thought you would always have. That's what happens when you get old, I guess. I knew I missed talking to them, but it sure does feel great to hear from them again.

The best is yet to come.
