I thought that it might be time to get back to the old blog when I realized a few things:
1. It has officially been more than two months since I have visited Planet Linson. I used to love this place, but the dust is about an inch thick around here.
Which makes Planet Linson (the virtual location) almost EXACTLY like Planet Linson, the actual location.
2. I forgot my password. And the answer to my security question. So help me, I could not remember my first pet's maiden name or the street on which he lived.
3. I have a daily conversation with my fourth-graders about the importance of writing, and how vital it is, and how it is not just a 7:45 to 2:45 skill, and why at least a few times a week, I expect them to do a 'Night Write'.
And I totally got sick of feeling like a hypocrite.
4. That I just updated my weekly TeacherWeb, and it was longer than any normal human parent will actually read. I should put something at the end that is a test, like... "If you have read this far, you have just won a fabulous prize!"
Only then, I'd have to actually think of and provide some sort of semi-fabulous prize, and these days, I'm all like, "Did I forget to bring a lunch? Why, yes, I did. Again."
5. I've missed having this creative outlet. As busy as my 'new normal' is, I still love to hear friends comment on how much they like reading my blog (and how they've missed it. Thanks for not giving up on me ;)
---- Oh, and if you've read this far, you win a prize.
To claim it, meet me at my classroom tomorrow. And please bring me my lunch.
