Out of the Frying Pan...
Although it took me more than two hours to get home (usually a 25-minute trek) last Thursday afternoon, I had much to be thankful for. The basement remained dry. No one I know was hurt. We got a day off from school, although I'm sure we'll have to pay for that largesse when the snows of winter arrive.
We started back up again Monday. I was having a difficult time remembering names, since we'd only been in session for three days. My Lang cherubs are already behind. I had to attend a pointless faculty meeting after school today. There are so many papers to grade already ~ yes, I know, I should be easier on the kiddos, but it's not in my DNA.
Driving home Monday afternoon, however, I saw a sight that put all of this in perspective. At least my car has never caught on fire.
