Currently October

I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade. I just love her monthly linky!

I'm starting to get excited about my fall break that is coming up next week. It's only two days off but boy, do I need it!!!! It's been a CRAZY few weeks at work. This year we are giving all the third - fifth grade benchmarks online. I can't even talk about it right now..... let me just say, that there's only one more day left! 

I really want a massage so I can just relax. I actually have a gift certificate for a one hour massage that my hubby and daughter gave to me for my birthday in June but I've been too lazy to schedule an appointment. 

Next week on my fall break I finally get some time off to spend with my daughter (she's 13). I think this entire school year I have only picked her up from school maybe 8 times! Last year I picked her up just about every day from school but this year has been so hectic and busy my husband has taken over. It makes me sad that I can't leave work on time to pick her up. 

I guess my trick would be Google Forms. I've used Google Docs for some time now but never really took the time to explore Google Forms. I like that it turns everything into a spreadsheet form. It can be used as parent surveys, mini assessments (if students have access to a computer in class), online tests, anonymous surveys, etc.

I guess the trade-off for starting school after Labor Day is there is no fall break. Hope you enjoy yours. I agree that a massage would be great! Hope your week is a good one!

A massage sounds good. Hopefully you can find the time to spend fun time with your daughter : ) I need to find time to spend with mine too. Google forms are awesome--I discovered them about 6 months ago.
