Waiting for vacation


I had a wonderful birthday. I thank everyone who dropped by here or sent there good wished by email. Nick and I did celebrate and I’ll tell you all about that on Sunday. I just don’t have the energy or time to do it justice at the moment.


I know I don’t dig ditches for a living, I don’t work in a coal mine, I’m not a logger but each night when I have gotten home this week I feel like I have spent 12 hours at each of these jobs with a little alligator wrestling thrown in. If you don’t believe me try wrangling seventy-five 12 year olds (25 at a time) all day, each day, the week before Christmas vacation. It feels like a practice session for herding cats! Just getting them corralled is a full time job, much less try to teach them anything!! And with only a very few exceptions these are really nice kids this year. But I’m telling you the week before break is exhausting!



I’m just whining a little I do know I have it better that most folks. I get off two weeks for Christmas and I am going to savor every second of it, just got to get through Friday. Saturday LJ, Colin, Mollie and I are going to a Christmas play that LJ wants us to see, then a lot of relaxing to follow. I’ll be around here because so many of my friends live in my computer and I’ll also be spending lots and lots of time with family. I’m starting to feel better already!

PK, stop moaning and tell us about your birthday.
You should try being retired for a few years, you think you have it bad. WEG

PK,
I will give you the sympathy you deserve. Kids truly do bounce,climb and run a muck at this time of year and Middle School/Junior High ugh. Kudos to you and thank you for being a brave soul to teach these years! Now onto more important things Happy Belated Birthday...You dropped enough hints but my mind was on overload, so when you said don't mind me, I didn't! Sunday is soooooo far away couldn't you just tell us tomorrow? Fantasy Friday could be "Guess what we did on my birthday?"

Paul,
Come on, I'll get to it soon. I promise. I would like to try being retire sometime. I know it's not all sunshine and roses, but I still look forward to it.

Debbie,
Sunday will be here soon! I'll get through the next few day and maybe even have some snow to watch. May not be exciting to you but it sure is to me.

Ronnie,
Soon, soon!! I want that vacation!

Theresa,
I'm sure going to do that!!

Lil,
Thanks for the birthday wishes. I have to have time to write about my birthday and I have gotten to enjoy the company of my kids tonight - but tomorrow, I'll do some writing!

Thanks Meow,
Good to hear from you!

Lil Sam,
I hope you have a great Christmas too!
