Even though work doesn't officially start for me until Monday, I've been going back this past week and getting my room set up. Before I left, I did a deep cleaning of every nook and cranny. Now I'm very thankful for that. I rearranged the furniture (this is nothing new for me), replaced all the bulletin board paper with bright fabric - deep purple, lime green, and teal. All of the bulletin boards have a new colorful chevron print border so that there is some consistency. Having a fresh, colorful, organized space for students is very important to me, but only the tip of the iceberg for what I really do all year. :-)
In the midst of preparing to go back to work, I've also been busy preparing for my grandmother's 80th birthday celebration. She's going to be pretty in pink because everything is pink and white. I'm busy this weekend trying to do my share - order the cake, decorations, get the programs printed. Although her birthday was this past Monday, her celebration won't be until the 25th of this month. I'll be sure to have pictures then. That's my other responsibility.
However, as I was talking with him about everything else, non-dental related, I invited him to Skype my students and he agreed to actually come in and talk with them...after his triathlon. So a super fit doctor he is! How cool is that?
Finally, a friend of mine has been making her pins a reality and made me some homemade coffee creamer and pickled hot banana peppers. :-)
Until next time,
