The Computer Died....Or So We Thought

I haven't posted in several days. I'm sorry.

Life is hectic around here during the last few days of school. Lot to do finishing up awards lists, managing to get through one career day and one celebration day to celebrate the fact that we got through the state testing. Both occaisions were hot and rowdy days. Field Day looms before us next week. Various grade levels are spread out over three days which means I won't have a planning period for three days straight. Oh joy!

At a time when I had several things to do online the computer decided to disrespect me. It actually froze up. Dear Hubby and I were ready to throw in the towel when suddenly it began working like nothing had ever happened. Dear Son surmised I just simply needed to give the tired keyboard a much needed rest.

At any rate the timeline of history around here froze a bit and for that I apologize. History blogging will resume shortly, I promise. However, first......I'm off to Vicksburg for a much needed quiet weekend where Dear Hubby and I will wallow in the historic homes of The Great River Road, the Natchez Trace, and of course, the Mighty Mississippi.

We had planned to visit Savannah, but in case you haven't heard Georgia has been experiencing a major forest fire in the southern region ( it has now crossed the Florida line). We were concerned about smoke, and then tropical storm Andrea blew in. At one point this week it was reported Savannah closed the harbor because of nine foot waves. We decided to head west instead.

So....many thanks for all the visits and comments. Regular posting will resume in a couple of days and I promise to detail every history-filled minute of my travels.

We don't have planning for 3 days next week?

Have a great time in Vicksburg.

I am in Hinesville-40m from Sav- no smoke- did not see any fire

See ya on Tuesday.

EHT, you take five days off and you're apologizing? Puh-leaze! You are so prolific that you put many of us to shame. Everytime I have a post within five days of my last one, I feel like I deserve a reward. In any case, I hope you enjoyed your break!

I just wanted to wish you a very Happy Mother's Day. Taking a break is a necessity this close to the finish line.

Thanks for being a wonderful teacher ~ I wish I could be in your classroom! (belated Teacher Appreciation wishes)
