So it's PREMIERE WEEK. I've finally gotten to see (or will see) all of my favorites. Will House and Cuddy make it? Where in the heck did 13 go? What about Bones and Brennon? Will they get together? And will Olivia make it back from wherever she is? Will Walter be able to forgive himself for what he did in past? And will Olivia and Peter get together? This week has been like a reunion of friends I haven't seen in a while. I need to make sure that the DVR is still set to record all of our favorite shows.
Even though this has been a crazy week at work, it seems to have gone by pretty fast. And I'm soooo glad, too. Tomorrow is going to feel like almost a wasted day, but I don't mind. I remember having fun during high school, but today's teachers have so much pressure to cover their objectives and to prepare kids for all of the standardized tests that they have to take that it is hard to build in "fun." As teachers, we try to incorporate fun activities into our lesson plans, but long gone are the days of a flag football game during school hours to raise money for an organization.
Several years ago, the powers that be decided that we didn't need to get out early on the Friday of homecoming. The parade was moved to Thursday night, and the Friday of the game was a typical pep rally Friday. I hated it. It didn't feel like homecoming at all. A couple of years ago, the powers that be (new ones) changed things back to the traditional way of doing things. So tomorrow will a half day with a pep rally at the end of the school day and a parade at 3:00.
I'm glad we're getting out early. I probably won't go to the parade since this is our weekend to be in Hartselle. If I went to the parade, we wouldn't get on the road until about 4:30 or 5:00. If John doesn't get caught up with work, we should be able to get going by 3. Maybe we can beat the Birmingham traffic...
Gotta go watch Bones and then Fringe.
Have a GREAT Friday, and
