Old Schoolmarm, That's Me

Yep, that's how I'm feeling today ... like an old, old schoolmarm. It's the end of the work day, and I can't leave school without telling you the kid story of the week. I was with a first-grade group, and Aden was reading to us. I excused myself to jump up and grab a kleenex because I sneezed and my nose started to run (so attractive). Erin asks, "Oh, do you have a cold?" Without missing a beat, Aden answers, "Nah, she's just old." Does it get any better than that? My ego will never be out of control as long as I have first-graders to keep me in my rightful place.

Now the weekend begins! I'm off to have a very adult beverage and a pedicure. Even an old schoolmarm can have fancy toenails.

Don't kids says the craziest things! LOL Hope you enjoy your adult beverage and pedicure. Both can cure what ails you. BTW, love the CADD Badge. I suffer from this tremendously and may have to "borrow" it for my blog (if you don't mind). I can't stay on one project to save my soul!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, Doris! I love the Aden story - he must be quite a hoot! From your previous post, I have to tell you how impressive your ATS is! It looks so delicate and gorgeous on 40 count! What a thrill to see three of them side by side. This is the pattern that got me back into stitching and is still one of my all time favorites to admire as I walk past.
Peace,
Terri
