Looks great! I just received my book from Amazon, so I'm excited to start reading.

I have a confession, and I have to make it public. I am so behind, and I'm mad, mad, mad at myself for letting it happen, especially after I made up the reading schedule. When I told my husband how mad at myself I was, he tried to give me permission to be a little lazy during the summer, and he reminded me of how hard I work during the school year, but I don't feel good about myself. I have been reading fiction, watching movies, and wasting time in a million ways when I could have been reading this book. I'm so frustrated with myself. But I feel better after making the confession.

Just a thought...I think this makes you human and right there with the rest of us...except for Ms. Jodi!

I think you sound like all of us, Dana. We're exhausted when we finally get a break in the summer and we NEED time to read fiction (even baaaaad, ridiculous fiction like I tend to do in the summer), watch movies, and waste time! Give yourself a break. This is your time to revive yourself in preparation for another year of helping kids.
