Where I've Been . . .

Being held hostage. (Actually, administering the high school graduation test for four days.)

Yesterday was errands.

Today was laundry and housework. It was supposed to be grading papers, too, but I didn't get that far.

Last night was fun . . . I judged a small-town beauty contest. I'd never done it before, but it really was interesting. I went with a friend and her aunt (we were the judges). They fed us finger foods (which I love) and we talked, laughed, had a good time. Judging was interesting -- difficult at times (we had three ties) but fun. The best part was I got paid a little bit (enough to buy those shorts from Old Navy I've wanted but wouldn't let myself splurge on, plus enough to buy my new bathing suit.)

And we got a goodie basket. That was the best . . . like Christmas morning. We weren't expecting that, and we received some really cool things. I have to write a great thank you note for both the experience and the gifts.

What have you been up to?

A beauty pageant? That's pretty cool. I can honestly say I've never done that.
