Gonna be a long day. Teachers are working till 6:00 tonight. With all the days we’ve missed school, they’ve decided to have parent conference day take place from 2:30 to 6:00 tonight and tomorrow. Ugh, two back to back eleven hour work days. The kids would have been off today and teachers would have worked. Now, it’s a regular school day and teachers will stay until 6:00 tonight and tomorrow to get conference day in. Gonna be a long one. The PTA is fixing food for us. I don’t know what they’ll have but we won’t starve. I don’t have a clue about what to wear. I’ve got to look nice for the parents but I have to be comfy for the long day. Guess I should have thought about that yesterday.

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I was going to help the graphics department at school with an open house kind of thing? They’re finally going to try to do that tomorrow, too. I had to freeze all the ham, turkey, and buns. I got them out of the freezer last night and put them in the trunk of my car. Hope it’s all still good. I think the ham and turkey will be fine but I don’t know how the buns are going to be and I’m not going to be able to buy anymore. Hope I don’t have a couple hundred stale buns out there. I swear, we girls have more problems with our buns…

11:45 - Almost noon! Five hours down, six to go!

4:30 - The PTA gave us apples, oranges, potato chips, tortilla chips, salsa, veggies and dip, and cookies. You gotta be kidding?? I’m tired, I’m hungry, I need to go to the bathroom. 1 1/2 more hours. (sigh)

7:00 - Home.  Finally. Twelve and a half hours since I left for work this morning and I have to do it again tomorrow.  As soon as it’s a little bit darker, I’m going to go outside, strip off my clothes, and slide this poor old tired body into the spa.

out of the flame and into the fire Pat. You just got well and now you have to pull crazy hours like that. I hope the hours fly by for you.
It will make your time next weekend all the sweeter.
Take care

Wow, that is a long day. Well, I hope everything goes well. I’m sure you can pull off cute AND comfy! Hello, you are like the fashionista of the group :)

And I want you to think back a few years… to when the boys were my boys ages… running is one of the FEW things I get to do ALONE! It’s like a break! ha.
