I've been on the receiving end of a lot of sweetness lately. This is my last week of teaching Grade 8 French. We're doing exams this week and once I get them marked and the report card comments done, I'm finished! I came home from the last day of class and my sweet daughter Ashley had a little package ready for me - this card, a magazine, a DVD set of Corner Gas (Canadian comedy) and chocolate! I'm not really retiring - I just do lots of things for short periods of time!
