Hi, Maggie...yes, I'd like to see those sites you've bookmarked...if not too
much trouble. Thanks. my feet hurt!!!! Today was my first day back to school and
standing/walking on cement at school is a lot different than walking around
on carpet at home.

I had cleaned and re-organized my classroom before I left for summer...and
when I got back, the custodians had all the tables and cabinets from both of
my classrooms crammed into a corner of one, everything was
stacked on top of each other. And then to top it off...they only cleaned
the floors in the empty room.
