What a Way to Start the Week!

I hope the rest of my week is as good as tonight! I've been nominated by two of my followers for the Versatile Blogger Award! Big, big, BIG thanks to IAMNAN at Third Grade's a Charm
and to Heather at Mrs. Robinson's Classroom!

You have both just made my day......um, week!

When you receive this award, you must thank the person who gave you the award, tell seven things about you, and pass this award on to fifteen other blogs that you think deserve it.

OK...I've offered my thanks. Now for the seven things about me.

1.  I can't go to bed at night without pinning something on Pinterest! (Bet I'm not alone in this!)

2.  I would rather read than do anything!

3.  Sometimes I pull my hair out trying to work both a MAC and a PC, but I think the Mac is slowly winning me over!

4.  My friends don't like to sit with me at movies, because I am a sobber!

5.  I taught for about twenty years before moving into an administrative position with our district for nine years. Four years ago when my son became a senior in high school, I asked to go back to the classroom. Best decision I ever made. Now that both my son and daughter are in college, my twenty-two kiddos at school keep me from missing them too much when they are both at school.

6.  My Daddy is an auctioneer. I can do it, but only in private! No one has EVER heard me.

7.  I would love to open a bookstore one day. Guess it will have to be after I win the lottery so I don't have to depend on that income to make a living!

And now....TA DA DA DAHHHH! My fifteen winners are........ (I tried to pick some of the blogs I really like that everyone might not be as familiar with.)
