I assume if you are using the "Cat In a Hat" graphics set from Scrappin' Doodles that you received the e-mail about the set and how we can't be calling anything we sell or share from that set "Seuss" related. SO- if you downloaded my "Seuss" pack from Teacher's Notebook, be advised that the materials are still the exact same, but I had to change some of the wording. I am so sorry! I wanted to change the name of the pack to "Celebrate the Feline in a Fedora Day!" but my husband talked me out of it! You'll probably be hearing and seeing this a lot from others who used the same set! Oh- and I had to change one graphic on the flippy book for this issue too, but the content is the same!
2.) My Gerbie:
I didn't really share about this after it happened because it was just too sad... I spent an ENTIRE day crying about it... but my first class pet ever, the gerbil, Lily, had an accident over Christmas break. She was staying with a student and had a wonderful Christmas where she was loved and spoiled like crazy! But, she did not return to school... my kiddos were very sad but we reassured them that she was probably living a fabulous life in the walls of the home she stayed at over break. But we missed her like crazy! Well, about three weeks ago, that family brought us a new gerbil and we named her Gerbie! That's right. I used my "teacher power" to help influence the name selection. I love calling her Gerbie! Also... she might actually be a "he" but we don't really know. He/she came to stay with me over this weekend as we had Friday and today off. My husband and I went to do errands today and bought her an addition to her cage- so now she has an outside of the cage wheel, a fun loopy thing, and a 2nd little house to live in. Here's the addition...
We spent way too much time when we got home watching her run in her new wheel and then abruptly just *stop* and she'd go flying around and around!
Here she is peeking out from her new wheel!
3.) A Sale:
I'm having a "Why Not Have a Sale" Sale over at my Teacher's Notebook Shop! Everything is 20% off until Wednesday!
4.) Sad Target News:
I was so jealous when I saw all the great stuff Amy at the Resource(ful) Room got at Target so I had to get right down there today (even though I was already there on Friday and Sunday- I'm sick, people). But Target had NOTHING for me. NOTHING. Can you believe that??? That has never happened before!
I did get these St. Patrick's Day pins at Target on Friday... if you go after them, be careful! Some feature mugs of frothy yellow beverages which I can only assume is some sort of soda or carbonated lemonade... just wouldn't want to send the wrong message!:
BUT... the Dollar Tree came through for me! I got these large foam dice:
These Easter goodies- pencils and foam shapes!
And these St. Patrick's Day foam shamrocks, a banner, and garland which I run across in front of my windows at school:
So that was my day. It's back to the grind tomorrow! Friday night my husband and I have tickets to see "In the Heights" which is (of couse!) a musical since I am not only addicted to Target but to musicals as well. So, I'll be counting down the hours until I'm sitting in my seat ready to enjoy the show!
Have a great Tuesday and, for those of you who worked today, hope it was a good one! :)
