Clean up on Back to School Aisle

Well isn’t this a fine mess? I repeated a life lesson this past week. I decided to go in Wal-Mart for something I believed was a crucial necessity. I unknowingly walked past the Back to School Aisle and was stunned at the melee that was in full swing. All the shoving, crying, pushing. Cursing under the breath, swearing and threats. This was from the people trying to get on the Back to School Aisle. On the aisle it looked like hand to hand combat was going on combined with WWE crowd shouting and chanting. I began to reverse course after seeing the seriousness of the shoppers … Continue reading Clean up on Back to School Aisle

New Hair Tonic or a Back Seat Driver.

Road Trip!  We have completed our trek to Saluda SC. Home town to Alamo defenders Travis and Bonham. We had a great visit with family and friends. Saluda is a small town and it is kind of cool learning all about the local gentry. Who has done what to whom, when it took place and who was there when it happened. The travel time isn’t too bad, 7 hours on the road. In the first hour smiling and happy for the adventure. Remembering when we would travel with the kids and the questions asked, “Are we there yet?  When can we stop?” We don’t have kids … Continue reading New Hair Tonic or a Back Seat Driver.

Getting the Classroom Ready or A Back to School Ritual

The end of July, every person who is now or ever been married to a teacher knows what that means. First come the meetings, you know the kind where they go all day. Then they come home and say “Why can’t we just get in our classrooms?” As the non-attending person I can remember just a few weeks ago when it was “I can’t wait until I get out of this classroom!!” And then access is granted to your own personal area. “Oh Boy! We get in our classrooms this Friday. There is no air conditioner but I can go over there and check out my … Continue reading Getting the Classroom Ready or A Back to School Ritual
