tweet tweet

Well...I did it. I joined twitter. My computer savvy husband has been on for awhile and I'd been thinking about it, but I kept saying it wasn't worth the time, and I didn't really get it. Well, that has all changed. After watching Oprah last Friday when she joined, I decided to join the twitter world. And, there' s a few blogs I read that have given some excellent reasons for joining twitter. As an educator, I love all the technology resources I can find through certain "tweeters" (is that what I call them?), and I appreciate the ability to keep up with people who I don't see as often through twitter. After joining last night, I may or may not have spent the rest of the night just looking around on twitter for people to follow. I lead such an exciting life! If you have twitter, you can follow me by looking on the left side of my blog. For those without twitter, you can still read my updates on here, also on the left.

The lovely Brittany tagged me to do this a few days ago...

8 Things I Look Forward To
1. Eating at Five Guys today with J!
2. Fish Tacos that J is making for dinner with the fish he caught on the Chesapeake Bay on Tuesday!
3. This gorgeous weather. It's gonna be 90 here at the beach and we're hoping to enjoy a nice walk this evening. We have too many errands to run during the day, but we're hoping to actually hit the beach tomorrow.
