Currently November 2015

Say it ain't so…
is it seriously NOVEMBER already???
I am always glad to see October LEAVE…
but this year I am slamming the door on its way out!!! 
come on… don't you agree???
we had

Red Ribbon Week… 

in which our kids find every excuse possible to be out of dress code 
and walk a fine line between … UMMM is that ok to wear to school? 
to … UMMM HECK NO go call your mamma to bring you a change of clothes
and then we had

HALLOWEEN

see the above… same guidelines… and when we say no scary masks…
YES your mask with blood pumping through it is scary… so call your Mamma or hand it over...

a full moon

say what you will but this does have an effect on the little ones
only educators know this to be true
they may not grow extra hair and howl 
but they might as well right… because it can cause some serious pains 
and add to that we had 2 yes that is TWO fronts move through… FUN FUN FUN (sarcasm)
and then we had

an Air Show

my little school is just a
hop
    skip
        and a jump
away from the  AIR FORCE BASE
and when there is an AIR SHOW scheduled for the weekend they practice ALL WEEK
ALL WEEK… and when you have cold fronts come through 
they can't practice on those days 
SOOOO guess what they do 
EXTRA LONG practices on the good days to make up for it…that would be FRIDAY
YAY… (sarcasm)
well if you are a really good friend of mine you might know I HATE
H*A*T*E things flying over my head…especially large fast flying… LOUD jets
aka the THUNDERBIRDS
and when do they practice…
at recess and at dismissal…
FRIDAY DISMISSAL
where I can see them ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM right over my head… and if the kids start waving and getting crazy… guess what… they well flip upside down and WAVE at the kids…
THAT IS HOW CLOSE THEY ARE TO THE GROUND people…
and our kids were NUTS…
the government had made budget cuts and slashed the air shows for a few years…
i was OK with that…
and now they are back!!!
so YES the kids were NUTs… can you blame them… they were on sugar highs and were out of dress code legally… why not jump up and down and wave uncontrollably at the large jet clipping our trees and NOT pay attention to your mamma waiting for your tiny hiney to get into the car so she can go home… 
dismissal took twice as long and I am pretty sure I had a heart attack…
I mean who thinks it is safe for 5 jets to fly over an elementary school at a million miles per hour while inches away from one another… 
that's safe right…
so while I was planning a mass casualty drill in my head… the kids were having the time of their lives!!!
GOD BLESS 'Merica
and GOD BLESS NOVEMBER!!!

and so my friends…
and thanks to the NOVEMBER sponsor

and here is mine...
DID YOU REMEMBER it is a clock changing day???
YEAH I didn't either…
and nobody gave the memo to my dog…
we did buy a new house… more info on that later…
it is like 4 blocks away form my old house… and 4 houses down from my parents…
ha ha ha…
and yes we are still living with my parents… until after Thanksgiving
tile and paint first
then we can move in!!!

for YUMMY I just decided to write down my favorite Thanksgiving food…
I will post the recipe on my INSTAGRAM account later…
later like when my Mamma gets the recipe card out and I can take a pic of it…
ha ha ha

  3. yes I just noticed Hours and Last Day too! Whoops! Try and cover it up with a square gals, match the square to the surrounding colors and add the text "yummy" to it. I bet it was from June!

    1. Ugh! Hate when I don't proofread before publishing! Here's what I meant to say:

      I love seeing and hearing the Thunderbirds flying over our house, so blame me. They're flying for me! LOL Love you, girl!

  7. Oh, what fun memories your post brought back! My school in Tennessee was right next to a small airport and hosted an air show every other year! While I don't love things flying *this close* to my head either, I did love laying on the grass with my firsties, listening to their oohs and ahhs while watching them practice! Such unfiltered joy from those kiddos! Have a Happy November!

  8. I totally agree about Octobers. It's like once it's over, we can move on with the rest of the school year. It seems to be the hardest month every year.

  11. A new house! How fun! I know moving can be stressful, and it sounds like you already have a headache with ripping up old tile! It'll be worth it in the end though.
    Thanks for hosting the Currently linky this month. I haven't caught it the last couple of times, so I couldn't wait to get home from church today and get started on mine! You are featured in a picture on mine this time from our meeting in Vegas this summer at the TPT conference. Now you will be famous from all two people that come see my blog post. LOL.
    I hope you have a WONDERFUL November and that you post pics of the new place soon! I'll be checking back to see it!

  16. I needed to laugh today and your post helped me do that! Now that my conferences are over, I am happy to see November unfold and to have Oc-NUTS-tober over too! We had report cards due on top of Red Ribbon Week spirit days and holiday parties! We got rid of costumes and the Halloween parade a few years ago and it makes the day a lot more tolerable! I can't imagine having the Thunderbirds do a fly-by at dismissal. I would be yelling "duck and run for cover" for sure! You are a brave soul! I am hopping over to Instagram to scroll through for the cornbread stuffing recipe! Yay for family and comfort food!
