This week's thank you very much goes out to:
1. The two ladies (and I use that word loosely!) who wrestled on the cement side of the pool, trying to push each other in. Are you kidding me? It is bad enough when I have to yell at the kids, but the parents too?! Yep. Thanks for reminding me why the kids act the way they do.
2. Negative Nancys and Debbie Downers. Surely, they know who they are. They can suck all the air out of the room with their complaining. Nothing ever goes right in their lives. They exhaust me! I do my best to dodge them. Do you think they know it?? Thanks to them, I'm becoming a good little escape artist!
3. The lovely weather. We are boiling here. Sweat rolls. Crops are burning up in the fields. Thanks for helping me melt off pounds. (Yes, it is all water weight!)
4. To the kids who broke in at the RV park and stole beer, cigarettes, and chew from the convenience store. Thank you for hammering the ATM machine and wrecking it. That was a nice touch. And businesses are all doing so well in this economy, your actions are sure to help them out. Yeah right.
Actually, this week has been a better week on Easy Street. I made a start on readying my classroom for the 1st day of school, ended the summer job, and am finishing Eat, Pray, Love just in time to see the movie. (I'm actually quite mystified how they could turn that book into a movie!)
Things are pretty darn good around here. And it isn't even the weekend yet!
