Happy 2013! I have been very happy by the number of visitors to the blog, but not so happy about the number of posters. If you post on the blog, I have to approve it and after you’ve had one post approved, you no longer need approval. I figured this is the best approach to avoid spam and still allow people to avoid a lot of verification for every single post.
Students and teachers return tomorrow. I’m really curious to see how many people show up. I don’t think most parents who had travel plans decided to cut them short. It does make the break a bit short for teachers who were planning to use the break to get errands done, It wouldn’t be too bad if both Christmas and New Years weren’t midweek. I personally got a lot done during these two weeks, but failed to get my car in for service or get my windows measured for treatments.
