Blessings for Today

1.  Diet Mountain Dew.  I seriously would not have survived today without it.

2.  The most amazing caramel dip for apples that I've ever eaten in my life.  A fellow teacher brought it for our Wednesday afternoon social today.  SO GOOD!  

Here's the recipe (it's all spread out on a big platter like a layered dip) (Thanks, Angela!):  
Bottom- Mix 1 package-cream cheese, brown sugar (enough to change to a brownish color), and vanilla(1 tsp).
Middle- Spread on Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel
Top- Sprinkle on toffee chips
This isn't a recipe that you can mess up. Just mix, spread, sprinkle....and dip!

You will not be sorry if you try this... the toffee chips are like little bursts of wonderful.  And, yes, I'm fully aware that PMS and the upcoming opening of a show might make food just a little more of a priority right now, but I'm not kidding.  This is some GOOD STUFF!!!

3.  My students.  They say things that completely crack me up.  Here are two that happened this week.

Girl:  "I don't have ADHD.  I have ADOS..." 
Me:  "What's that?"
Girl:  "Attention Deficit... Oooooh, Shiny!"

I had just finished talking to some students about staying on task and using their time wisely.  I didn't lose my temper, but I definitely made my point.  Another boy in this class had been listening and said, "You remind me of those waitresses at Applebee's.  They say it with a smile, but you sense tension."

Never a dull moment in middle school.  :)
