    I get out at 11:30am on Thursday! On Friday, I am going to go see the Shen Yun show and have balcony seats! :D

    Nice--I've wanted to see that show when it comes to Toronto, but tickets always sell out so quickly! My sister and I are taking my mom to see Come From Away just after Christmas and I'm hoping to take my kids to The Illusionists the first week of January.

    I'm home again today.

    Yesterday was flooding. Today was icy roads.

    I've made food for pot luck on Friday, and I've got a few resents to wrap and some stickers to make for DSS's boss. DH hasn't been out either day. Our districts are very different even though they border one another.

    What are you making for your potluck? We have one on Friday and haven't decided what to bring yet.

    I'm just in survival mode, living off treats from the break room.

    I made pigs in a blanket . . . Lil' Smokies wrapped in crescent roll dough. I also made pie crust cookies. We do finger foods so people can grab things and go.

    We're supposed to be leaving about an hour and a half before that Friday. Hopefully nothing changes.

    I decided to bring spicy cranberry mini meatballs in my crockpot. I prefer finger foods but some people do bring casseroles and such.

    The kids go home in 5 hours. I plan to be gone an hour or so after, if they let us leave when we are done with grades and paperwork.

    I have today and tomorrow! The only paperwork I have is to fill in some information in an IEP for a meeting in January. Then I'm done!

    If everyone has their grades in, we'll be gone no later than 2:30. *sigh*

    Someone's lucky.............I just have this feeling that some slow poke will be the reason we won't be able to leave right after the kids.

    I’ve been off for hours and it’s amazing. I can’t wait for my show tomorrow! And I’m thinking about going and seeing the new Star Wars movie before I go to the show, lol!

    NFL, bowl games, movies, books, video games, food, sleep, more food and more sleep. 16 1/2 with no children, none. The excitement is building!

    Yesterday in my classroom: "MrsC, can you wash our table? M licked it." I teach Grade 7. Sigh.

    We were actually given time yesterday to specifically get done what we needed in hopes that we would leave at 12:45.

    The kids are doing the last minute clean up in the room so that I can be out as soon after 3:00 as I can.

    Kids will be gone in 2.5 hours; I'll be on my home within 3. It will be a bittersweet afternoon as we are saying good-bye to one of our amazing secretaries who is retiring. I've worked with her for over 10 years and she is a very good friend. We'll end the day with a clap-out (cue the tissues!).

    They all have autism and other disabilities so they have a lot of those kinds of behaviors. I just have to wipe everything with lysol multiple times per day!

    By 5:30, I was home, showered, and in bed watching TV. I’m worn out.

    I may or may not have gotten McDonald's on the way home, for a treat. (There is one foodie in my marriage and it ain't me)

    Had a parent to ask a co-worker why we needed another break since we just came off of Thanksgiving break. These parents, these parents.

    Maybe the co-worker should ask the parent why they always need time away from their kids.

    Boom!

    I saw the Shen Yun show and it was incredible! It was a “visual feast” as the billboards say. And speaking of feasts, I had a delicious $23 teriyaki salmon plate with an assortment of vegetables drizzled with this teriyaki sauce before the show and it was positively delicious. To wash it all down, I had a chilled blackberry Izze. Yummy! At half-time, I visited the lobby and got an ice water and a raspberry tart — it was a nice treat before returning to see the second half of the show.

    Tomorrow, I plan to tutor for a couple hours, go shopping for some new clothes, and then go the chiropractor. It’s time for an adjustment! And then maybe I’ll go get a massage after, too!

    I love Shen Yun. They come regularly to my city and it's always great.

    I need to get a massage. I have roll-over services at a spa I never use.

    OMGoodness! Today is Day 1 off for me. Yay!!! I had to stay until 6 last night to get my reports done. I am planning on staying home with coffee and my heat turned up to 90 all day. I need to leave tonight though.
    It is so darn cold here that we have to keep our cars plugged in. Someone remind me why I came here! :) Joking! I know why and am not sorry. I just wish it wasn't so dark and cold.
    PS I am so comfy that I just called and cancelled tonight's outing! I am happy to be inside where it is warm.

    It may be tomorrow before I can do that. My daughter was out last night and again tonight and the dog is very restless waiting for her to come home so I can't fall into a deep sleep.
