The weird thing is that though the whole house was completely trashed, nothing was missing. There was jewelry and checks and electronics and papers with her personal information out in the open, and none of it was taken. Even the kitchen garbage can had been looked through. The police said that the culprit was probably looking for something specific, but seriously... what could it have been? It seems weird to me that it happened because she lives in a really ritzy part of town, but I guess that's the kind of people that crooks want to rob.
So, my grandma has been staying with my aunt Cindy, and I'm so glad she's okay. This whole thing really freaked my whole family out. I just can't believe it happened. It's the kind of thing you hear about happening to other people.
On a cheerier note, I have some good news: I teach my first class at the elementary school this Friday! I have character development worked out for the lesson plan. I was thinking that I could just turn them loose with the worksheet I've prepared and they could just fill it out and then spend any free time of the lesson sharing their characters with me and with each other. I need you guys' help, though. Does this kind of worksheet seem like it'd be fun and age appropriate for 4th graders?
( what do you think? )
Tell me if you think I need to fix it, and if so, how? Don't be scared to be brutally honest. I can take it. And I realize it's small XD the print size is a lot bigger than the version I showed here. I just need you guys to give me advice on it <3
Also, on another good note, I finally got paid from all the work I did before. I won't be working much for the family company until summer when business picks up, but until then, although it doesn't pay, I've got my teaching job. But, me getting paid from before is good news because a) I am no longer dirt poor and b) this means I can afford to send out all the packages with Xmas presents for you guys! Sorry they're a bit late! I'll try to get everything out as soon as I can, but I'm so busy right now that it might take a while O: I am so sorry! *slightly stressed, but happy*
Now I've just got to remember to budget really tightly until summer gets here... don't let me buy anything expensive, guys! *determined*
