When I say it was poorly written, I mean it was written like a high schooler wrote it! it didn't flow, jumped all over the place, and was totally unbelievable! I didn't make it past the first maybe 10 pages and quite frankly was stunned a book this bad was even published.
On the movie front, Hubby and I saw Captain Phillips starring Tom Hanks. It was WONDERFUL. We were on the edge of our seats the whole time.
This is what the real Captain Phillips looks like.
Throughout the film, my husband I kept asking to each other and wondering, is there a law that doesn't allow them to carry guns to protect themselves from Pirates? Anyone know someone who has a family member of friend who is a captain of a ship?
In other news... Today school resumed from Fall Break and I came into my classroom with a few holes....
A squirrel somehow got in through the pipes or something in the ceiling and chewed his way through the ceiling tiles. 3 of which had to be replaced. He ate 30 marker caps and markers, construction paper and cardboard, and my fish diagram that I had up high.
Needless to say I was super annoyed! I don't want the poor thing to die, but he's going to if he's been up there that many days without real food or water.
Thankfully my Principal has graciously offered for me to get new markers that the school will pay for since he did so much damage!
The bad news...
My students clay projects many of them didn't make it since the squirrel jumped on the counter and smashed them into pieces that are just to small to fix or glue on since they haven't even made it into the kiln for a first firing.

You all know I'm very anti soda. In fact, the only soda I'd drink was Sierra Mist since it had no artificial sweeteners in it, and was only used with real sugar.
I guess you could say the heavy content of sugar part was the part that stinks about drinking it.
Let me introduce you to ZEVIA which is AMAZING!
It has NO Aspartame or Fructose Corn Syrup in it the sweetener comes from Stevia which is not one that causes cancer or bad things!
You can find this soda at healthy food places such as Whole Foods or Sprouts.
Has anyone else tried it? I am currently digging the Strawberry flavored one, it reminds me of a Crush soda! :)
