Eat more cookies

I started student teaching last week. As any student teacher knows it is most important to not miss a day. On my day 7 my van wouldn't start. My husband is 40 minutes away and I am stuck at home. Alone. I called in. Did I mention alone. Oh so rare for me.

I wrote a paper. Worked on a science unit. Baked cookies.
Cookies went like this....

Mix up cookies
scoop on trays
 place in oven
set timer for 9 minutes
strip bed linen 
 remove pillow cases from 8 pillows
