Well, the fates conspired against me this week!

I haven't been active at all this week, and I'm sorry about that. And so sorry to Cherie Reich for not getting an entry into the Lightning Flashed flash fiction contest. I had family in town until Tuesday, which kept me busy, and they took my baby girl with them to Washington, so I had to get her all packed. Also, at work on Monday, I found out I was moving classrooms (for the 4th time in six years [and they're sending me back to the classroom I was in last year]!) so I've been packing up twelve years worth of teaching crap and moving the last few days, exhausting me to the point where I can barely use my arms at night.

I probably would have missed the announcement of my own blog hop if I hadn't done it early.

In short, I've been a bad blogger and not visiting many - if any - blogs, and haven't had a chance to reply to many comments, although I keep trying to when I can.  I'm a sad panda.  I miss reading what everyone is up to!

The good news is that today is my last day of work for summer! I'm off until the end of July, so yay! I'm going to Washington on Tuesday for a few days to get my little Sephy and fly back with her, but otherwise, I should be getting back into the swing of things.

Miss you all!!! XOXOXOXOXO

  2. Enjoy the rest. And as much as they drive me nuts, I'm not sure I could stand a whole week without my kids.

    1. It's been hard. We skyped with my daughter last night, and she started crying because she wanted mommy, so I started crying. It was very hard. I get to see her tomorrow, though, so YAY!

  4. Have a great trip! And don't worry about it. It's easy to let real life get in the way of blogger life. :)

  6. Aw- don't cry Jaycee! I am way behind right now too. I didn't even prep a Friday Fact or Fiction. This week just went by way too fast.

    Have a great vacation, and please just enjoy yourself!

  7. Don't feel guilty, I think a lot of people are traveling or doing stuff with family right now, from what I've been reading on blogs. I was out of town for a family wedding myself a couple of weeks ago. Drag about you having to pick up and move teaching gear. But enjoy your days off from work!

  8. As a fellow teacher, I do not like moving classrooms. Grrrrrr! It seems as if just when I get comfy and have the room the way my students and I like it, it's move time.

    By the way, it's hard to juggle family life, writing and blogging so I wouldn't feel guilty.

    Take care!

    1. I'm trying not to. :D

      And yes, it's so frustrating to move, especially if you have a prime location in the school, like I did. Oh, well. Such is life.
