  1. The numbers can seem overwhelming--especially when I think about the 2 posts x 135 students waiting for my comments. But we are counting down days in March. Enjoy your visit!

  2. I love how you have mixed numbers that are not so great...paper cuts...with fun numbers like how many friends to see and relatives you will visit. I love the number of books for break! I have one more week until break too and I am counting down the days!

  3. Great list! Like Andrea commented, I like the mix of fun and not-so-fun things on the list!

  4. Fun to see, especially anticipating all those relatives and friends to see. I'm not sure yet that I want to do the numbers game-too frightful! Hope your last week goes well before your break!

  5. Too many opportunities for paper cuts! Ouch! This week will fly by as you get everything together to go visit in OK. I love the numbers approach in the posts.

  6. Spring Break beckons...woo hoo! And you have so many joyous things to look forward to.

  7. It's a good thing that Spring Break is just 1 week away. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel and enjoy all those numbers of friends, family, and books. :) Good luck with that paper grading.
