Sweet Valley Kids #3- The Twins Mystery Teacher

The twins’ teacher, Mrs. Becker, faints in class one day. The class gets a subsitute named Mr. Pinecone- yes PINECONE- for the day, and the class switches seats so Mr. Pinecone has no idea who any of the kids are. So Mr. Pinecone doesn’t return because substitute teaching is just not for him. Gosh, I had much worse classes than this guy when I subbed, and I did it for over a year!!!! Ah well. Well the next day the class gets Mr. Marshall and he means business and doesn’t tolerate any bullcrap. But then one day the kids see Mr. Marshall getting into a cop car- ooooh Mr. Marshall is probably a CRIMINAL!! But noooo- Mr. Marshall is a cop who needed extra money so he is subbing during the day. But then Mr. Marshall gets a really important case and has to stop subbing, and Mrs. Becker returns safe and sound. That’s really all there was to this book. I mean once you see Mr. Marshall getting into a cop car ya figure he’s a cop. And I wish he had busted like a teachers’ big drug ring or something because he is undercover but nope.

I have good reason for making today’s recap short. It’s because I wanted to really bring up something else. As everyone knows, I am now trying to work out for at least 30 minutes every day in order to lose weight, and I have lost 13 lbs since January 11- not bad, right? My boyfriend and I are also getting a lot more serious, and I have every intention of moving in with my boyfriend in the next few months- August the latest. And in addition, work is just not as interesting as it used to be, and I am considering pursuing other options- specifically school social work, so I have to take the test to be a certified school social work at some point. The economy sucks ass so I know I will have to stay put at work for a bit, but that’s been meaning that I haven’t even been reading other of your blogs the way I used to, and I am losing some interest in keeping up this blog.

But fear not- I am not going to really be going away any time soon! I have quite a few books left to recap and snark on and I least want to get to Mary Anne’s Makeover. After I recap Mary Anne’s Makeover, ( gotta please Sadako at least!:) I plan to re-think what I will do with these here bloggy blog, and I will either recap a lot less often- say every two weeks, maybe even only once a month- or I will shut the blog down. But I won’t know for sure until I see how interested I am in maintaining the blog after recapping Mary Anne’s Makeover.

In the meantime-look forward to these recaps!!

      We’ll see how things go after I recap ” Mary Anne’s Makeover!!” It’s good to know I’d be missed if I went away!!! 🙂 I do love ya guys I must admit!!!!! We will see- maybe by the time I get thru the books I wanna recap it will be so much fun that I will never shut down- well I’d have to once I run out of books 😉

  2. I’d hate to see this site shut down, but whatever happens, good luck!!!

  3. I would be really bummed if you shut the blog down. You’re the only one who does books no one else does! (freshman dorm! Fab five! Girl talk! Svt!) I understand needing to move on, but don’t give it up completely.

  4. I hope you don’t shut down the blog! I enjoy reading it. I like the Gymnasts recaps, and reading someone else’s thoughts on the Sleepover Friends. I am not the best at keeping up with my blog–I mean, I didn’t do anything at all last year!

    I can relate about the job stuff. Good luck! I am back in school for speech language pathology.

  5. p.s. I forgot to mention, I was wondering what I was going to do with my blog too. At some point I will run out of Sleepover Friends books. I was thinking of maybe just writing about books in general. Not sure yet, though.

  6. Hope all goes well and that you still have time to blog.

    Thanks for the mention! Do love MA’s makeover. 🙂

    And…wow. Mr. Pinecone? They weren’t even trying, were they?
