Weekend Roundup...

...well, mostly I worked. I really like 'teaching' this course -- perhaps it's just the instinctive teacher in me, but I've made up all kinds of mini-lessons that I send out each week to the students. Of course, there's also the similar frustrations when students don't bother reading any of them. Today, for example, I had to edit a first draft where the student used a citation for 95% of her sentences. Oops...I'd specifically said (more than once) that I wouldn't accept that, but she did it anyway. And now she's going to have to completely rewrite her paper. The joys...

...we all have a cold in some form right now. My icky feelings from early last week have mutated into a slug-fest -- slugs in my throat and nose, and sleeping last night was challenging. DH has the runny nose, D has a sore throat, and E is finally (FINALLY) seeming to be on the last stages of a cough.

...my MIL stayed with us this weekend, as well. I didn't see her much, but we all went to breakfast together Saturday morning, which was nice. She decided to give E a makeover (without asking first), and although some parents probably wouldn't mind at all, we do. So when E came upstairs with makeup on, we were both like, "What the *bleep* did you do to our little girl?!" Fortunately, E willingly washed it all off as soon as I asked (which was seconds after I saw it). I don't wear makeup (at all), so I guess it's just not my thing -- and DH obviously agrees ;)

Anyway, happy last day of February -- I can't believe it's over! Last year, it seemed to last a year, and this year, it just vanished.

I'm looking forward to March :) Hopefully your March will be filled with less colds and less "surprises" courtesy of your MIL ;)

Ha, you can say that it went fast because you had mild weather. Here, it lasted f-o-r-e-v-e-r.

I bet that's part of it (maybe a huge part) -- last year, it was so cold and icky!

Thankfully, my sicknesses tend to be pretty mild, but I definitely appreciate the good thoughts :)

over here we are also still sick, colds seem to last forever. Although we finally are having only one temparature that is close to hot!
I don't like girls with makeup. I only wear it every once in a while and I don't like to depende on it for feeling better of myself and I don't think we must teach that to girls

No kidding :) At least they're not keeping us from anything (kiddos are still in school).

Hope you're all feeling better soon. It seems that the colds are hanging on forever this year. Glad you survived your weekend. Hugs.

Thanks :) I'm feeling better, but my brain is very fuzzy (making work a challenge).
