Coming Soon…

Hi everybody! I’m back from vacation and have spent the last few days moving. This has been one hell of a week. Oh, and my headache protests airports, airplanes, cold, pressure changes, moving, dust, and just about everything else this week, so it’s been really hard on that front too. It doesn’t help that somehow my regular nighttime medicine ended up being left at the old apartment for our first night in the new one. Anyway, hopefully that will all be under control soon and the moving will be done sometime tomorrow, so life should start getting back to it’s normal rhythm. I hope. I adore the new apartment, though! It’s incredibly awesome! And this vacation was one of the best I’ve had in recent years. I had a blast! I’ll try and post about it soon.

Anyway, I do have a few things planned that should be coming up soon here. I have a new paper doll outfit that will be scanned and posted as soon as it is found (in a box somewhere) and the scanner gets hooked up again. I also have a review of Bone to write and post for the Blogger’s Book Club and that should be coming soon (hopefully this weekend). I had a really great doll that I was working on too, but my computer saved it wrong when it crashed just before we left and it pretty much got destroyed, so I have to start over and it’s going to take some time. Hopefully I can recreate it! I’m also planning to post about the new home, vacation and possibly how much I hate hold music.

So, I should be around and back to posting soon! I have a ton of books to review!

    Hi–I am Joe Zaiman’s sister. While searching the web for another Zaiman relative, I found your website because you mentioned my big brother, one of your old teachers. Thanks for the nice comment from 2004. We still miss him a ton, and it feels good to see the little things that help us deal with his death. Anyway, I don’t know who you are, but I love your site, I agree with a lot of things you say about literature, and I’d love to have you respond. I teach at Waunakee Middle School. Thanks for the day brightener.

    I’m glad that my comment brightened your day, Clare! Thanks for commenting. I was really sad to hear about Mr. Zaiman’s death. He was a great teacher. My husband was close to him too (he also attended Edgewood).

    What do you teach? I’m glad you found my comments on literature interesting. I read all the time and am currently trying to get into graduate school to study children’s literature (English major). Thank you for checking out my website! It’s nice to hear from you!

    Hi again–Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I teach 7th grade Social Studies at Waunakee MS. But for the last 16 years I also taught English here. So I am a huge literature fan. I also looked into a master’s in children’s lit thru the school of education. Jack Keane, who has since died, was helping me with it, but at the time, our kids were still too young for me to commit that much time along with a full-time job.

    Favorite authors–Avi, Gary Paulsen, Anne Rinaldi, Sharon Creech, Virginia Hamilton. Yours?
