November 1st- the Day After!


Visit NaBloPoMo


Yes, folks, that's right. It's that time of year again: National Blog Posting Month, cleverly abbreviated "NaBloPoMo". I did this last year and had a great time, so I decided to do it again.

Here's a couple of Halloween pictures:
Aaron with his pumpkin on our front porch.






Aaron (appearing as the evil Darth Vadar), trick-or-treating at Fourth Street Live in Louisville!











Just as a sidenote: I had the day from hell today. In a nutshell - 8:00 AM meeting, annoying student showing her rear from the first minute of school, principal evaluating me while annoying student is going off, lesson disrupted to deal with annoying student, annoying student finally pushes it too far, gets suspended, 10:50 meeting that takes up my entire planning period, no lunch (forgot to bring one due to 8 AM meeting), youngest student confides in me about physical abuse by older sister, phone call to CPS, dismissal.

Next year I am taking the day after Halloween off!!!!

See ya tomorrow,
J.

Ugh, we all have those horrible school days. Just think, someday I might move and become your principal and be the one laughing my head off watching you deal with some punk kid and remembering why I like the power to suspend! Muahahaha!

Our principal fired a guy ON Halloween. Could been worse.

I'd be kickin' ass and takin' names. Probably get fired. But, I wouldn't need my Valium anymore. Sounds good. ;-)

I think I’d take Halloween AND the day after off!

RWA said...

Aaron makes a very impressive Darth Vader.

I would probably take the day off too, if that's any indication what future November debuts will be like.

Lookin' forward to those daily posts. How did your French guest react to an American Halloween?

Revolution - You would be a fun principal to work for!

E.Craig - I'm sure you would be a professional, like me. Which means you would only think about kickin' their asses! (ha!)

P.S.S. - Thanks!

Lisa - Definitely.

RWA - He can do the voice, too. He told me, very confidentially, "Mom, Darth Vadar is Luke's father. He really is."

Just Dave - She liked it. She went to a cookout/Halloween party and had her first s'more! She also loved carving a pumpkin.
