One glitch though: the computer I use for school crashed over the holidays, so I am a bit behind with everything. The same computer crashed just before the 2012 winter break, but I was able to get it restored then. This time, I think it's a real goner. I'm biting the bullet and buying a new computer for my classroom, but it won't arrive until January 13. So I may be a little slower than normal in getting online things done.
Fortunately I have everything backed up on Dropbox and Zipcloud, so I have not lost any important files, and my home desktop still works. If anyone has a spare laptop with MS Office that I can use for a week, I would be very grateful. I'm going to see what I can do with my iPad in the mean time. Things could be a lot worse.
See you all soon!
