* Fancy binder clips
* Dry erase markers in pretty colors :)
* Chalkboard thank-you notes. I bought all these up at two different Targets!
* Magnum Sharpie... I LOVE mine!
* Flair pens... YES!
*Goo Gone... every teacher MUST have some of this stuff!
* Argyle Duct Tape!
* My all-time favorite pens... Ink Joy. Cheap AND they work!
*Giant push pins to hang up the drawings your students give you!

RANDOM SAUCE #5
Thank you all SO much for your sweet words of encouragement and prayers. I was having *a moment* the other day, and just spilled my guts here on the blog. I sometimes feel like I only should tell the good stuff on the blog; you know, everything is always sunshine and roses. But not so much for the last six weeks over here. I must say that I felt a lot better after my little rant, and I so appreciate everyone's kind words! :) You will be happy to know that the hubs was released from the hospital on Sunday (probably because he begged the doctors to let him out for Sly's surgery), and we are praying he his home for good! There are a few spots that showed up on his leg yesterday, so we're a little cautious. He has another appointment tomorrow. Sly's surgery went well, so well in fact, he was running around and screaming like a wild man yesterday afternoon. I was kind of hoping he would be mellow for the rest of the day from the drugs, but no. Not my boy!
RANDOM SAUCE #6
I wanted to write a note of thanks back to everyone who left me words of encouragement the other day, but bad news... About 2/3 of them were "no reply bloggers." This goes for people who are bloggers as well as bloggy readers! I get an email every time someone comments on my blog, and I like to hit the reply button and write back. That way, I know you've seen my message (instead of commenting on my blog and hoping you've seen it). But I can't do that if you're a no reply blogger :( Here are a few tutorials you can check out to fix that problem: Ideas by Jivey or The Tattooed Teacher. I've had many ups and downs being a no-reply blogger myself, but now that it's fixed, I love that I am able chat with my friends :)
OK, so I think that's all the randomness I have for tonight! Later gators!!
