The 2010-2011 school year has begun. 
We had to attend a county wide opening day meeting.

All I can say about that experience is that

Oh yes, and

Oh, yes and theme park here in Georgia donated a prize to our county wide teacher of the year.

It was.....wait for it.....a water bottle.

Anything else I say could incriminate me and cause four of our five kids to be forced to miss several meals.

Did I mention it was hot.

Seriously, did they not know that hundreds of big ole grown people were coming today? So many programs were flapping it is a wonder the whole building didn't rise at least a few feet in the air.

I am afraid that I am going to have to tell the parents of my students to send a jacket with their children this SUMMER because the teacher has a malfunctioning inner thermostat.

The heat in Georgia this summer has brought out some of my inner psychotic tendencies. 

For example, that person you heard screaming about how her hair WAS! TOUCHING! HER! FACE!   That was me.

And the person that screamed the her dogs were TOUCHING! HER! ON! PURPOSE!  That was me, too.

Interestingly, one of the fabulous secretaries told me that as she registered another student for my classroom she heard the child say, "Mama, I'm having a hot flash just like Grandma!"

I think the two of us will get along just fine.  :)

Just sayin'..........................


  1. I feel your pain Sis! Sometimes when my internal temperature is whacked out I have to try on 2 or 3 different shirts just to find one that does not make my skin crawl. Those hot flashes - something else. Know that I keep you in my prayers....'cause I know you miss her as much as I do.

  2. It was great seeing you! I love your blog and I miss you!!!! Thanks for updating. Johanna
