It's been a L-O-N-G week...

.....a REALLY long week!

We had a special Mass for Officer Cassidy on Friday morning at school. Many police officers and other alumni and friends of his attended. On Wednesday the school community went outside and lined the street in front of the school when the funeral procession passed on its way to the cemetery. It was all very beautiful and very difficult.

Add in that this was midterm exam week, and grades are due tomorrow, and you can understand my exhaustion at this point. Between reading term papers, grading tests and exams, and calculating grades, my eyes are crooked and my head is exploding.

I'm taking the weekend off and doing some crafting, watching some old movies and just generally relaxing.

Since I cannot post my gradebook here, and I have nothing else accomplished this week, there's no pictures to post. Next week there should be something nice to see.

I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. One full of wonderful old movies.
Being a teacher these days is tough enough, but you had an especially tough week. Pamper yourself a bit. You deserve it and thank you for being a teacher.
