I have always wanted to have a surprise party. The problem with that of course, is that you can't throw your own surprise party. I sort of had one when I turned 10, but my mom told me about it a few days before.

Well, today I got my wish. My co-workers at school threw me a surprise "going-away/get well soon" party during our afternoon faculty meeting. I was SO SURPRISED! I passed the library earlier and saw a bunch of food laid out, but I just assumed it was because it was our last faculty meeting.

I was a few minutes late, and when I walked in everyone yelled "SURPRISE!!" I was so shocked and overwhelmed. I felt so loved and it was so great to know that everyone is thinking of me. It was so sweet. Everyone had contributed something small for a gift basket:
It has a coloring book, crayons, crossword puzzles, sudoku, playing cards, bubbles and more! Lots of things to keep me entertained when I can't do anything physical. I am so grateful to work with such thoughtful people.

My last day of school is Thursday :( My kids have decided to have a party. We're going to have pizza, watch movies and have fun. I'm not looking forward to leaving them but I am looking forward to having fun with them. Tomorrow is field day so I'm sure that will be fun also.

Thanks to everyone in blog world who is sending good wishes! I appreciate it!!
