Happy Halloween

I feel like such a smuck. I didn't buy any candy and two groups have rang the doorbell tonight. The only thing they got was dogs barking at them. Bummer. Maybe next year.

We have finally found a babysitter. It's the mother of a student I taught a long time ago and another daughter of hers is the assistant librarian at our school. They are only about .5 miles from the school. I think it's gonna be a good fit.

On the other hand, work is sucking ass this week. It's a long story but basically I didn't do something I was supposed to do and I got threatened with a written reprimand. 9 years I have worked out there. Oh well. I am going to the dance tonight. Don't start mom.

Here are some pics to keep you entertained on this cold night.

I know I suck

I told my MOTHER I would post today. I loaded my camera memory card and I have no new pictures! I will take some tomorrow.

It's been a hell of a week. Our babysitter got sick and we had to rotate days off to stay with Nathan. Thanks to Robin for taking a day!

We are not looking for a new sitter. I interviewed a lady on Tuesday but I was not feeling it. We talked to a girl tonight who would be interested in watching him here in our house. I liked her. David is not completely sold. We will probably have to negotiate price and I need to call her references.

Well, I will take some new pictures tomorrow and hopefully post them. Fingers crossed!

Strange Days

This week has been interesting to say the least.  Monday was a normal day, Tuesday was a normal day (I think; I can't actually remember that far).  The strangeness started on Wednesday.  I was hosting the leadership group here at school.  I got here early, Ella was setting up food, Karen and I were arranging tables.  She gets called to the office so I am just kinda wandering around waiting.  Then I get called to the cafeteria.  I head over there and I see Karen walking towards the outside.  I go outside and there is a rattle snake right outside the cafeteria.  So I go get a bucket with a lid and the maintenance guys get the snake into the bucket.  I take the bucket to my storage room and the front office calls animal control.  No big deal.  So I am in the office on a conference call and some one comes running in and says I need to go back outside.  So I do and there is another rattle snake!  Seriously.  So we catch that one and it goes into the storage room.  Animal control finally comes about 2 hours later and picks them up.  Then the custodian gives me another snake in a bottle.  Turns out its just a glossy snake; David let it go yesterday.  Today I am in a meeting (that I was late to) and some kids come by with a bunny!  The bunny was in the cafeteria and some kids were kicking it so these kids grabbed it and brought it to me.  So now I have a bunny in my storage room.  Well, right now he's in the greenhouse running around.  I hate to break it to these animals but the cafeteria food sucks!  I don't know why they are so attracted to it. :)
