Right down the street from my apartment is a great book shop. It's not a big box/big name shop. Nope, it's a small, locally owned, non-chain, bookshop. It actually put the Barnes and Noble down the block out of business!

Sunday night was finally the night! I honestly think I bolted right out of bed on Sunday morning, giddy with excitement! Mom drove up and after a quick bite to eat we headed downtown for the show!
The Opera House was packed! It was so cool to be there with all the patrons, after being their last week for the tour. It was like I had my own special preview of the opera house and its past. Well, come to think of it, I did!
Of course, they were selling various souvenirs. I think the 24601 shirt is my favorite! And they weren't lying about the haze, gunshots, and strobe lights!
I went to bed with visions of Les Miserables in my head! I will never forget this night and seeing such a famous show brought to life for the 25th anniversary tour!

What a week! The weather was glorious, with temps over 30 degrees above normal for Boston! This time last year, we had snow on the ground. Spring was in the air, for sure, as I did my Pesach shopping, repotted some plants, and pulled out the flip-flops. Professionally, it was a much smoother week, although we all had a minor case of Spring fever! Only 2 weeks until Passover and 3 until Spring vacation, but for now, onward to week 13!

opera house last week and they talked about the 350 chandeliers there and how they had all been dusted that day. I wouldn't want that job!

A few months ago, I purchased a Living Social deal for a Broadway in Boston membership. One of the reasons I decided to get the deal was that it came with a tour of the Boston Opera House. Yesterday was finally the day! I was so excited, not only was I going there for the first time, but it was just a gorgeous day out!
Now I cannot wait for Sunday to come so I can see it all in action. It will be even more amazing to be in the theater, taking in a show now that I know the amazing history behind this historic theater!

Is it possible for a week to be one of your better weeks and one of your toughest weeks? Yes? Ok then that sums my week up. I had a great week of teaching, really felt on, was teaching a ton this week due to various reasons and had an observation that went fantastically. Then there were struggles with a student of ours which made it a hard week, professionally. On top of that I was under the weather and kinda meh. But looking on the bright side: the flowers are blooming, the weather is extremely amazing, and I am full steam ahead towards the end of the semester (oy vey!).

Outside my window...beginning signs of spring are peaking through. The tree by my window has the early signs of spring and I am so looking forward to seeing the little buds peaking through, soon!
I'm hoping...my lesson that is getting observed Thursday goes smoothly and that the kids love it. I know I can teach the lesson, I just hope the kids aren't bouncing off the walls!
