Week in Review

Happy Labor Day! Are you lucky like me and not working today or unlucky like my husband and working? He's not too unlucky though since working today means holiday pay.

Last week was pretty quiet around here and then ended with a busy, but pretty great, weekend.

I worked 2 days again last week. Both of them were 4th grade - same school, but different classes. I normally dread teaching 4th grade, but this year's class seems to be pretty good. I didn't have any problems and had good days. Of course, it did help that both classes had paras that dealt with behavior problems. 

On Saturday, I started my day with a haircut. I'm keeping the bangs although I think they got cut a little short this time around. Hopefully they'll grow quickly.

M and I then headed to the outlet mall with my mom to take advantage of the Labor Day sales. I was really excited that Vera Bradley was having a 50% off sale, but sadly, I couldn't find anything to buy. The outlet didn't have several items I was interested in and while I did look at a Lunch Tote, I didn't like any of the available patterns. Guess I'll just wait until April and Outlet Sale.

I did manage to score a good deal on some sweaters at the Gap outlet store. The whole store was 50% off.  I never buy anything at a regular Gap store, but I always buy something at the outlet. I got 2 sweaters for less than the regular price of one of them.

On Sunday, we had our family gathering at my sister-in-law's house up in Michigan. My nephew wanted to go to the used bookstore in town, so M and I went with him and my niece. I've never been there before, but the rest of the family always raves about it, so I had to check it out. It was awesome! It was a maze of books and the organization was amazing. I managed to find 2 books that I've been wanting. I have a feeling going to the bookstore will be a more regular thing whenever we go up there now.

We had a lot of fun the rest of the day eating good food and playing Phase 10. We even did some Wii bowling and archery later in the evening. It was a lot of fun. Too bad the next family gathering won't be until Thanksgiving!

How was your weekend?

  1. The curious cat in me is wondering, what are the two books you've been wanting and managed to find? I'm always up for adding things to my to-read.
