I made a good start to the weekend last night, and read half of a play I'm teaching next week. I can't seem to find teaching notes for it, which probably means I've never made a folder (either physical or virtual). GRRRR. I've taught this play several times before, and enjoyed teaching it, so I should have notes. But I couldn't find them. So I need to make sure I make a folder this time.
I have about 50 papers to grade this weekend. But what I really want to do is go buy some things! I've gotten to a point where a lot of my winter socks are wearing at the heels. They're going to wear through soon, and I want new socks! And I want some new long johns (tops). I have four "technical" long johns base layers sorts of tops, and they're great. But I want another color. (First world problems!) (Long johns make winter way better!)
I have really good news. A couple I know, really fine, good people, are formally adopting a child they've been fostering. I'm so happy for the whole family! I've even arranged for someone to teach an hour of my class so I can go witness the happy event.
I need to think of a present. Maybe a game? Maybe a book for the child and flowers for the parents? Something joyful. (The child is a girl, about 11 years old. Because we don't live really close, I don't know the child very well. What I know of her, though, is that she's really fun, plays soccer and such.)
