Patrick is out of town AGAIN.
The boy is gone so much I can't keep up with it.
This is the last time for a good long while, we think.
So, I went to the football game last night and saw a lot of my students.
I got caught up on all the "who's going to Homecoming with who" gossip.
I shoo-ed away many boys trying to talk to my cheerleaders as they sold programs.
I got lots of hugs and smiles.
I love being entrenched in this great community.
I love it that my students are happy to see me and want me to know what's going on in their lives.
I stayed up really late, because it was Friday night, and I wanted to.
Then, I slept until 10:00 this morning.
I watched the Food Network for as long as I wanted
because Patrick was not here to whine about Rachael Ray's nasal-voice.
I realized I had all the ingredients for this soup, so I put it in the crockpot.
Now, I'm going to meander around Target for an insanely long time.
Then, I'm going to come home and read a book.
On the couch.
With an entire pot of tea.
And I'm NOT going to grade a single paper.
