All Star!

After years of denying myself.... I finally bought some good ole' Chuck Taylors!

Two posts in two days.  A new record, I think.

I feel like Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.  I would love nothing more than to run away to Australia.

Bad news number one.   The boyfriend was laid off this morning.  Not much else to say about that.  Just sucks.

Bad news number two.  Students' parents are nightmares.  Phone call from hell.  When I'm already not happy.  Kids lie.  Teachers know this, WHY DON'T THEIR PARENTS?  Do NOT blame me.  Your kid is making it up.

So.. I'm sitting on my plan period being about as productive as a log... so why not pay a bit of attention to my sad little blog, right?

School is going amazingly fast!  It's almost end of 1st quarter.  Then it's almost Thanksgiving.  Then it's almost semester break.  Then I will have ALMOST survived a year as a teacher.  Sigh.  That's a lot of almosts.

Wedding season is (again..) almost over. Two weddings this month and I think there may be one in November as well.  Yikes!  We're off to St. Louis this weekend for one.  I haven't been to St. Louis since I was all of maybe 10, so it should be a good time.  Plus, the parents and the sister and brother-in-law are off with us as well.  Can't be all bad!

Speaking of weddings-- Sister 1 is engaged!  Friday evening her boyfriend popped the question and she said yes!  They're hoping to get married this June!  Very exciting..!

Things with me are, as always, being pushed to the back burner.  Things that I would love to face but that maybe take too many big decisions or simply.. I don't know where to begin!  Such as moving out.  The boyfriend and I keep talking about moving out... setting dates... we know where even!  But it's never that simple! 

Fun note that ties the last two together:  One of my English students told me yesterday that I "need a honeymoon" because I was, in her opinion, grumpy.  I told her I was pretty sure that meant I had to get married and then told her about my sister.  She said, "Oh, well that explains it!"

Always a good time at THS!! :)
