No T.G.I.F. today, “not no way, not no how.”  Today is the last Friday of February vacation week, which means that Monday is back-to-school for at least another seven or eight weeks.  During that time, we have our yearly MCAS testing….a miserable, unfair, ridiculous test that virtually every student must take, regardless of their capabilities.  It’s also rigidly monitored to the point of amazing tension among all of us that work in the school system.   It’s one of those necessary evils.

On a better note, my sister-in-law and I had a wonderful lunch at Olive Garden today, then spent awhile meandering through Michael’s Craft Store.  It didn’t spark my creativity like I’d hoped, but I did get this…

DSCN3551 …a magnetized note pad that says “I child-proofed my house, but they still get in”! 

Have a great weekend! 


  1. Enjoy your weekend and good luck with the testing.
