Don't tell your English teacher

Well here we go, my first official blog. I created the site in October and meant to begin writing then, but I put it off. However, now it's 2008 and I plan to keep in touch better and this is one way I'll do it. Of course, all of you lovely people who I want to keep in touch with will have to read this, so I'll try to make you come back asking for more...

Right now Jason and I are hanging out at the folks house (we plan to be in our own place soon now that our SC house has been rented, and we would love to have you for dinner once that happens) and I'm thinking about taking Mitchell to library hour tomorrow morning. He's a big fan of the songs, books, and hanging out with his friends. He's been going since he was three months old, so we're hoping that he'll have some impressive social skills and a love for books. Which reminds me that I'm supposed to be reading the book Rebecca for my book club and I haven't picked it up yet. I will have to do it tomorrow.

I'm not usually interested in this particular type of book. Last time I was supposed to read Emma for a book club I ended up reading the spark notes instead. Jason said that was very "high school" of me. However, I may have known more about the characters' relationships, plots and subplots than anyone in the group! So for all of my friends who happen to be procrastinators too, I reccomend that you check out sparknotes.com. Yes, even as a teacher I am promoting the use of spark notes. Just don't tell your English teacher I said so, and don't you dare use an online translator when passing in a Spanish paper.

  1. I'm laughing out loud Erin! You are too cute and I can totally hear your voice while reading your blog.

    I'm so glad you started it, now I'll have to stay up on it.

    I must say though... it's sad if we stay in better touch through this than in person. We're only 15 minutes away from each other. Ack!
