First day back and I dropped my coffee just outside of school. The whole cup busted. And as I watched the coffee spill out across the pavement, I thought this is NOT an auspicious beginning for 2017. < Sigh > When I finally got to my classroom, I discovered that someone had left me a giant wrapped ball of Lindt chocolates (yay!) as a present. There is a God! And he knew I needed either coffee or chocolate to get through the day! Maybe 2017 is going to be a good year after all….
