Furlough Days

Was supposed to start back to work this past Thursday. Budget cuts...two furlough days (and one more later in October), so why bother. Apparently there are people who just assume that teachers will take a pay cut and come to work anyway. Not this teacher.

The weekend is well underway, and I do officially start on Monday. *sigh*
I always feel a bit depressed when summer comes to an end.

Am working on a huge scrapbook project for my cousin's birthday, so I need to get back to work. Hope you are doing something fun this weekend.

This is a really weird system! I think the Teacher's Union here would have something to say about it. My sympathies on the recommencement of school. I heard Garrison Keillor's radio show tonight and he was telling a Lake Woebegone story about a man listening to his sister complain hysterically that she was giving up middle school teaching and going to become a Bar Dancer as it would be infinitely more rewarding!!!! :-D

They locked OUR school these two days so we couldn't work. That doesn't mean I didn't work at home, though. I'm going to be tired before the kids even arrive from all the extra work I've been doing!!!

Love you! Let me see the project before you turn it in to your cousin. I know you'll make an A+!
