Going out in style

On my last official 24 hours of vacation, the Js are going to come spend the day. Fun! I’m not sure what all we’ll do, but we will definitely find some kind of mischief to get into.

Tonight, the Thriller and I will dine on the beef stew that cooked all day, and have a relaxing evening at home. Once tomorrow hits, the insanity begins. Yippy. Into the Great Wide Open.

Of course, that journey begins with the video on bloodborne pathogens, union meeting, two staff meetings (those of us who teach both middle school and high school are lucky like that), finishing up the last of my classroom preparations (I admit I have yet to file last spring’s music), and doing some more lesson planning, copying, cleaning, and phone-calling. Then I’ll be ready for Tuesday.

Why do I have Monday off? I dunno. We’re just awesome like that, I guess. Or they did it so chumps like me could spend the whole time at school anyway.

OK — boys arrive in 25. Gotta get the coffee refilled and on with the day. Hang in there, fiends — it’s almost the end of the week!

We did enjoy the day! (And incidentally, I AM looking forward to Thanksgiving, because of the FOOD aspect — maybe I was channeling that? LOL)

I’m sure the boys had a grand time with Grammie/Grandpa Jack! I know you’ll miss not being able to do that as often during the school year. Just keep your eyes on that retirement clock, kiddo. Hope your “disease-filled” day went well and you were able to stay awake during the video! ReplyRat Fink Reply:August 18th, 2012 at 6:37 amWell knock me over with a feather, Mavis. I’d forgotten that we have to watch the dreaded video online now, and not as a group where we can monkey around with our phones and iPads and generally not pay attention. Of… Read more »

…and how was the stew? Was it my mom’s recipe ? :-)

Hey you! It was my old standby this time (the last time was your mama’s, and we loved it). All I had in the house was the meat, taters and carrots. But it was tasty!

Hey, somebody’s ready to fly the country soon…XXXX

INDEED! And I was UBER-happy about it until about 15 minutes ago (see my most recent FP post)…. **sigh**
