It's A Three Day Weekend
These past few days have been incredibly cold. The thermometer in Rome remained below freezing throughout the day. I've had to bundle up because my classroom felt so cold. I am looking forward to taking a few days to regroup.
I am so excited about my first blog contest. Actually it's a two fold contest. one contest on ThriftyMaven.com and the other one here. The pressure is really on now. I have to make sure I continue to work on content that others would actually be interested in reading.
Yesterday a miracle happened when a plane was forced to land in the Hudson Bay and everyone survived. It was absolutely AMAZING. The jet hit geese and lost power minutes after takeoff from La Guardia and all 155 people aboard were rescued. The crash took place on a 20-degree day, one of the coldest of the season - with the water temperature 36 degrees, a Coast Guard official said.
Here are the bog contest I entered.
