The first week of a new semester

The first week of the new semester is finished.  I ended the week well keeping grades up.  Every day I checked off homework as it was turned in and only had two students who didn't do their homework this week.  Those students got detention and sure enough, the next time homework was assigned, they had their homework.  It wasn't done well, but at least there was a small attempt, which is better than last semester.  I'm happy with the progress.  And I'm happy that I didn't have to bring any work home this weekend.

I didn't find any quilting or embroidery time this week because I was exhausted every day, but the weekend is here and it's a Binky Sunday tomorrow so I definitely have plans for working on quilts and making some more baby hats.  I have lots of crochet hats ready to donate the next time I drop off quilts at the Nurse Family Partnership.

Are you playing the PowerBall?  I plan to get a ticket.  I told my students if I win, I won't be at school on Monday.  I heard you have a better chance of getting killed by a vending machine falling over on you and squishing you, but hey, you can't win if you don't try.
