Gotta Love a Pep Rally

I've been very blessed this year by not having to teach a 7th period class. I'll count them one by one:
  • Almost all classes are worthless during the 3 o'clock hour.

  • I can prepare for the next day.

  • My day seems to end a little earlier and with less stress.

  • When I have somewhere to be, I have no problem leaving work early.

  • Students actually come in and clean my room during this time. We develop bonds.

  • I don't have to worry about a shortened class period during Pep Rally Days

But, tomorrow is different. Due to the fact that a few pitchers from the TEXAS RANGERS will be speaking, we're starting the pep rally at 9:30. So I'll have to deal with the fact that at least one student will not finish her test (leaves at 9:00 for band-prep; class begins at 8:45; announcements last til 8:50; 5 minutes to walk to Content Mastery and back; gives her 5 minutes to take my test). I will also have to be in charge of a class. My 1st period is a wonderful class. Thankfully, this will be the class I'll be stuck ALL DAY WITH for FOUR COMPLETE DAYS IN A ROW come TAKS time. Then I'll have to get my 2nd period class back into the classroom and settled to complete their test in a shortened time span. Really, it makes for a stressed day having a pep rally during 1st period. I'll gladly do it, all for the RANGERS!

I will try to take some pictures and hopefully post them soon!

Alrighty folks!

24 is BACK!

This is the one show I have to watch.

If you have never seen it, this is the time to start!

The 4 hour premiere is this Sunday and Monday night. I can't see either live, but this is why man created DVR, baby! Instead of watching Multiples (see previous post) at 7, watch it at 9. The show 24 begins at 7 both Sunday and Monday night.

Tis the season for Jack Bauer.

Identical Twins: One Boy, One Girl....WHAT?!

Watch this video. I had no clue that this could happen! I think I saw a commercial that promoted the show this clip is from. It will be on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday at 7 pm.

New Template

I wanted to jazz up my page a little. I switched to the newer blog version and it is failing. I lost some of my links and I am not able to change up what I wanted to change. Hopefully, blogger will fix all of those glitches soon.

Happy New Year!

It has been awhile since I posted last. I don't have much to say, except that I had a wonderful time during Christmas with my family. Maybe I can get some pictures to post sharing some of that with you.

I realized yesterday that I have some of the best teachers working with me. They are so helpful and so funny! I love having a good time at work.

I'm looking forward to February. Did I just say that? I have always held this month as the worst of the year, but maybe this year will be different. Here is what is slated:
  • Church Womens Retreat
  • Michael's Birthday
  • Baby Macie will be born
  • Valentines Day
  • College Roommate Reunion (where else but in Abilene!)
  • Spanish Lessons every Thurday night

I know I'm leaving something out, but that is pretty packed for a short month. I'm glad that my schedule is pretty full. Michael is working busy season again. He has been working late and is working today (Saturday). I hate seeing him for an hour each weekday. I don't see how some couples do it when they have odd work schedules. Ex. One works days while the other works nights. I guess we're lucky.
