So life is a little busy crazy right now.  This past weekend was Tootsie Roll's dance recital...
We got  into a car accident on the way to the recital and the guy who hit me scared the heck out of her by screaming obscenities at me like a crazy person (including the fact that this is the fourth time this year he has smashed his car) until the police arrived and made him stay with his car.  Fortunately, the police were wonderful and even gave her a teddy bear.  Our local police are really wonderful.  I was a backstage mom for the show, which meant that we were supposed to be there pretty early, so fortunately even with all this happening, we made it in time for the show (also fortunately the other backstage mom for her class rocked).  She was AWESOME in both of her dances and I owe a huge thanks to my family who came to see her, many of whom sat through two entire (almost identical) shows.  Kudos to Curly Jones, too, who was only supposed to be there for the first show but as Handsome Hubby valiantly missed the recital to deal with my car, him bringing her home after one show was obviously not happening and she was really good sitting through both shows.

The next day was Philly Comic Con, which will have to be a post in and of itself, but suffice it to say it was our first time going, we did dress up (heck, if you're gonna go, go big and have fun!), and it was an absolute blast.

This week is my last week of school, which is incredibly busy, plus I am moving into a new classroom for next year, so I have to pack everything and move it all.  There is a whole lot of stuff in a classroom, lol.  Anyway, I am NOT at all complaining because it is a voluntary move into the largest classroom in my entire school (!!!) and I am super excited.  I will have to show you pics of my current (decently sized, not small) and soon-to-be (huge gimungous) classrooms.  That is, when I have a chance to catch up on blogging, since report cards are also due on Wednesday and I am done everything but the written comments, which of course, are the lengthy part.

I am so looking forward to next week and summer beginning, to spend time with my hubby and kids, to CLEAN my poor, neglected house, and to WRITE LIKE A MUTHA.  Yeah, I said that.  Anyway, I will probably be popping around the net randomly this week when I need a break from the madness but I should be more regular after this week (no Activia necessary).  Yay!  See you all soon!

Car accidents are frightening for kids, hope she's feeling over it now. We had a young girl run into us (while texting) and I thought my 12yr old was injured because she was screaming so much! Turns out she just got a fright, our self-absorbed 8yr old didn't even notice we'd been hit, but did get teary when she realised our plans to head to the pool were out.

Sorry to hear about the belligerent drive and your traffic collision. Sounds like you handled it with grace and glad the police were helpful.

I know all about switching classrooms- I did it every year my first four years as a teacher. It's a pain, but it sounds like your new room will be awesome!

Enjoy your last week of school!

I hope you and your daughter have recovered from all that nastiness.

Enjoy your summer of blogging, cleaning, kids, and writing. Then tell me the secret to doing all of that. I'm going to have to cut down on the blogging and writing once the kids are home full time.

I'm so sorry to read about that awful horrid man who scared your daughter! I hope you are all ok especially your daughter - what a scary thing to happen to her!!

Poo on that bad man's car! And raspberries to him!!

Glad the police were there to help you and were kind to you.

Anyway your daughter is adorable!!

Good luck with all your goals - writing or otherwise!
Take care

Good luck with your goals. My daughter's dance recital was this weekend too. Soooo cute. I'm glad you and your family are o.k. after the accident. SOme people can be so rude.
Take Care.

It's a shame you can't beat people with a bat when they scare your kids like that. But kudo's to the cops who carry teddy's in the car.

Sounds like you're on full-speed crazy. Good luck with all that. Take some time off and relax for a little bit when you get it all done. Too much can put you down pretty quick and not in a good way.

Love Tootsie Roll's pics. So cute.

How awful that you got into an accident. So glad everyone is okay! I can't believe people would curse in front of kids like that. Love her pictures, BTW!

they gaver her a teddy bear? That's awesome! Do they just keep some in their squad cars?

Medeia Sharif said...

That guy is a big jerk, and I'm glad you still got to go to the recital after the accident.

It's tough moving classrooms. I'm crossing my fingers that I don't have to do it again.

I'm glad you & your daughter were fine after the accident but when I read of FOUR accidents in SIX months I don't think he would even have a valid driver's license at this point.

Also, I can empathize w/ your daughter as recitals or stressful & for her to do well after the accident just shows her resilience. Glad to read of it & I think that's such a pretty yellow dance dress. :)
