Dare to Share #198

It is Friday night, and you know what that means... 
It is time to Dare to Share! 

This week went very quickly for me, probably because it was all over the place.  Monday was the calm before the storm, so to speak. We had a day off of school for Martin Luther King Day/teacher development day. Both of my kids are/were behind in their homework, and neither got any done om their day off.  The rest of the week my daughter had headaches and was late for school the last three days.  I had a sub job Thursday morning, but woke up sick, so I had to cancel it.  Luckily I canceled early enough that someone else picked it up in time. I felt really bad doing that, but you can't teach 4th graders all day if you feel like you are pass out, and possibly have to reach for the trash can.  I ended up taking a 4 hour nap, which really helped me feel better. It was also my oldest daughter's birthday that day, but we did not get to celebrate.  She is currently out of the state, and we missed having her home Today I had a sub job in the media center  where I used to volunteer.  It ended up being a great day. I will be called to fill again, because I knew the job well due to helping out there for so long. It felt like I had never left, even though it was three years since my volunteer days.   My son passed his online German class the last minute today. I was quite stressed about it, because if he did not finish it in time, it could have messed up his graduation.   Now this weekend we have a lot of make up work to finish up on that my daughter missed when she was out of school with her headaches.   Whew.. Next week have to worry about several midterms. 

This week I shared some of the great Party Finds I found for a Candy Land Party.  I have a few projects planned, but did not have a chance to work on them with all the school craziness.  

In honor of my oldest daughter's birthday, I did a flashback post to the year she wanted a Sushi birthday.  I shared How to Make Candy Sushi that I put on top of her cake. It's hard to believe how quickly the years went by.  

With the freezing temps and all of the snow hitting a big portion of our country this week, I chose this cute Paper Mache Penguin craft by About Family Crafts as a Dare to Share Feature this week..  Are you in the storm where  you live?  

My co-host Kim from Kandy Kreations is in a snow mood. Her posts this week have a snowman theme like these Snowman Oreo Pops

Now it is time for this week's party.  You are welcome to share anything that you would like to share. If you are chosen as a Dare to Share Feature of the Day, your post will be featured on the blog and my social media.  This party is also seen on Kandy Kreations for about the exposure.  Kim also chooses post to feature on her blog and social media.  

Link Up and Have Fun!
