We didn't get to hear our names mentioned in Mom's speech last night because she didn't win. But, strangely enough, Mom was really happy NOT to win because winning the "teacher of the year" award at the county level (she won at the school and district levels) would have meant a lot of traveling and having substitutes teach her classes. Mom's not big on having other people teaching for her.
So, we guess that if Mom's happy, we're happy for her.
Thanks to all of you who rooted for our mom and asked questions, too. No, we didn't get to ride in the big black limosine, but the Feline Americans did get to see it from our window. Why didn't I get to see the limo? Grandma accidentally locked me in the computer room because she didn't notice me in here bloggin'. I spent six hours stuck in here ... Boy, did I have to use the box when they got home!
