I'm not in school right now; we don't go back until September 3rd. But, I will have sad news for my last year's class when we go back... our gerbil, Gerbie, died last night. She's been vacationing at my house this summer and when I cleaned her cage last night, she wasn't acting right. I told hubby that I didn't think she was going to make it... and, when I went to check on her an hour or so later, she was no longer with us. She was about 1 year and 8 months old, which I think is good for a gerbil.
I'm a big ol' sap when it comes to animals anyway... but I feel slightly silly feeling so sad about a rodent, but we loved Gerbie! I won't have those kiddos in my class since they're moving up to 4th grade, but I have no doubt they'll be popping in to say hello and check on Gerbie... so I'm sure they'll be bummed to hear the news!
So, that's my news for today.
On a brighter note, I have been shopping at TpT off and on all day today and taking advantage of the BTS sale! :) Gerbie would want me to spend money, right? You can still get an extra 10% off using the code BTS13 until midnight... and I think it's midnight west coast time. Gerbie would want you to shop too! Just tell your significant other that when he/she wonders why you're splurging later!
