For your weekend reading:

You can read some of these posts here and here These posts helped me in different ways, but my favorite one to write was probably this one about my dad and cherry coke.
+ On a lighter note, this was one of my favorite activities I did with my students last year.
+ I can't resist free stuff.
+ I am the worst decorator ever- like burnt orange with lime green bad.
+ This post on blogs going "stale" has been fantastic food for thought for me. Kenya hits it home!
