~ Tonight may or may not be the Small Town's last football game. If it is, this will be the shortest season in 8 years.
~ YS is ready for football to be over so they can get started with the concert music.
~ Plans for after school today: workout, go home, take shower, put on jammies, and curl up on the couch. Looks like a good night for the first "The Family Stone" viewing of the year.
~ Sad news: The School Resource Officer (SRO) at one of my schools got some bad news this week: his cancer has returned. He went yesterday to get his port. It's not looking too good. He's a wonderful SRO: the kids LOVE him, and he's very involved with the faculty. Prayers are welcome.
~ As I headed up to my "mountain school" yesterday morning, I was able to take in the colors on the mountains. It seems like they're hanging around longer than usual this year, and they are absolutely gorgeous. I'd better get up to the parkway/cove this weekend to get some good pictures.
~ MS' high school friend/teammate who kicked during UT's game last week is traveling to Arkansas with the team this weekend. He probably won't get in the game, but at least they're not leaving him behind!
~ We had quite a dilemma yesterday: YS wanted to go the game store for the midnight release of some new game. It was a school night, so we had to make a decision. Being the good parent I am, I totally left it up to CH to decide. The game has already been paid for, and apparently the store was having some party leading up to the release. It's beyond me how anybody could spend 4 hours in a video store. Yes, he got to go. :) And, he was up at 5:45 this morning to get a round in before school.
~ I went to a workshop last Monday; there were only 6 people there, and 4 of us are from the same school system. We got some great ideas, and were able to interact with the speaker and pick her brain on some stuff. I love going to workshops that get you fired up about your job!
~ It's going to be pretty cold here...what's it like where you are?
