I swear – I have not abandoned my blog! I know it’s been almost 3 weeks since I posted – but things in my life have been quite busy! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and are getting ready for the coming holiday! The reason I’ve been gone so long? I was sick (blah :(), then my computer got a nasty virus (very nasty – out of commission a few days), and I’ve been super busy at work lately making me extremely tired at night – and not wanting to get on the computer and type! I was on my computer tonight catching up on my favorite blogs and getting some good ideas to use in my classroom so I decided to write a little something to explain my absence. I promise I will start regular posts again for those of you who read them! 🙂 Thanks for being bearing with me and being patient!
