I've been a bad blogger

Friday morning Timmy woke up feeling a bit under the weather so I kept him home from school. I was already to go so I ran to school to drop of my plans for my sub. On the way home my car all of a sudden became so LOUD! I had an appointment for yesterday to get an oil change so I had the dealership look at it. I needed about $1200 worth of repairs on my 12 year old car. I didn't want to put that kind of money into it so I bought a new car! Ten years ago I bought a used Saturn (2 years old) and it lasted me 10 years. I guess I got my moneys worth.

I hope this new one serves me just as well :)

So, this is my new baby!!! What do you think!

take care,

Ahhhh, YOUTH

I was introducing the letter "A" to my kindergarten class today. I was showing them a series of cards with words that begin with the letter A. I got to antenna and of course they asked what that was. I told them long, long ago before there were remote controls and cablevision people had to use an antenna to be able to watch TV.

One of the girls raised her hand and asked how people changed the channel if there weren't remote controls. I showed the class how a person would have to get up, walk to the televison and actually turn a knob!

In disbelief she looked at me and said...."you mean EVERY TIME they wanted to change the channel?".

take care,
