Laying the Groundwork

Option 1: Curling into a fetal position and sleeping the entire week away.

Option 2: Investing in a few dozen boxes of tissues.

Option 3: Find all those 20-something and 30-something parents of the other 1st graders and beat them up just 'cause they exist.

Option 4: A lovely, refined gathering of intellectuals virtual friends.

Option 4 it is!!

Helloooo: I'm having a birthday on Thursday, and you are invited to the party!!

If you're worried about who else will be at the party, here's a little hint.

Perhaps you remember The Princess of School aka my daughter's favorite teacher from elementary school? Perhaps you remember that we thought she was a gifted teacher with a terrific intellect and so many fascinating interests? Well, this teacher broke our hearts last year by retiring, and we moped around because a very nice part of our neighborhood school community was gone.

But September arrived and she was back. A different teaching assignment, but back. I was so happy she hadn't disappeared entirely that I put her on my short list of where to send some of those email forwards which come my way. (Gift-giving IS one of my talents, you know.)

If you're wondering how The Princess of School fits into my virtual birthday party, the answer is coming tomorrow.

Okay, I can't wait. The answer starts with a "G" and ends with a "Y" (and there's a little "IVEAWA" in the middle :)))
