- Catch up on a few movies, especially those nominated for Oscars
2. Finish a book you were trying to read for school when your own book became more important
3. Do some solid lesson planning for your last nine weeks’ unit on reading and writing Creative Non-Fiction (does poetry count?), to ensure that students will—hopefully—be active participants
4. Start another book you found last weekend at Barnes and Noble that sounded fascinating (and so far, so good!).
5. DON’T blog. Whatever you do. Give those readers a much-needed Aimee break.
6. Maybe clean the oven—since you’ve been meaning to for more than a year now—ick.
7. Give yourself a pedicure for spring.
8. Cook dinner for your hubby a few times to make up for every night during the past five months that he’s cooked for you. He’s the best. (Thank you, Jackson!)
9. Hold your kitty cat while having coffee one Sunday morning
10. Spend way too much time pondering whether it’s time to let your hair go gray (thanks for the genes, Dad!), pouring over photo after photo of blonde/gray hair—should you finally grow those roots out? (But you’re still young!)
11. Go see your favorite high school student-performers in the spring musical, The Little Mermaid.
12. Consider planning a trip to Vegas to see Ricky Martin, errrr, I mean, for Jackson’s 40th birthday.
13. Think about what you might want to write next. Next? Like after THE BOOK next? Yes, Aimee. Next.
Hmmmmmm. I don’t know about that last one. Phew. We’ll see.

I go for #12. Definitely not the oven.
You are way too young to go gray – try a new color, or new highlights, if you want a change. I love your haircolor and cut, btw – I wouldn’t change a thing, beautiful. : )

Thank you! I talked myself out of it…I’ll wait another ten years or so…(if I can).
