I also like the fact that we have parent teacher conferences in the day, while kids go play and/or watch a movie. This is not forcing us to stay after hours. I never had to stay that long in Virginia, but still, a normal work day is much better than a long one.
So despite my day going well, our hockey team lost tonight, bringing the play-offs to a 3-3 tie. Ugh. We have one last shot in Russia to make it happen. I am proud of them either way, b/c they entered into the playoffs two seats higher than last year. Improvement, no matter how small, is still improvement. :)
