Soccer Slide Show

Kate's team moved up to a premiere league and last weekend was the first game. I threw together a quick slideshow because I'm bored waiting for dinner to be ready!

Running Mate

Wow, McCain's pick has me completely surprised. I don't care if she is a woman or not, I'd never decide a vote on just that. But, she was a small town mayor and just a few years of Governor experience.

I get that she brings him some much needed help with the more conservative voters but here is my concern.....

McCain IS OLD.......and she isn't qualified to take over as the President. I see some very bad Moose Burger jokes on late night tv. And I wonder how her husband, a commercial fisherman, is going to like the belt traffic and Washington Business.

Lot's of my friends have already turned the big 40 this year and I'm close behind them. Where does the time go? More importantly, where did all the muscle tone go??

I found the perfect piece of flair to celebrate this momentus year. My co-workers, will like this one :)

Back to School

My motto every August is this:

I have 3 high school and 1 grade school kid to get ready for school in my own house. That alone requires hours of work. But I'm an assistant to a Principal, so I have a staff of 50 and 500 students to deal with from 7 a.m.-4 p.m.

The school just bought all new copiers that are state of the art! Scan to network folder/scan to email/ color/ staple/ fax etc... which is making the staff members turn back into tantrum throwing 2 year olds (not all, most are great but there are a few that I do hide when I hear them coming).

Did I mention 3 days before school starts we added a new section/teacher due to enrollment overflow. So that required 3 teachers to move or combine rooms and free up 1 new room. Did I mention we had just had the phones digitally programmed to display the correct name & link the right voicemail boxes and that we had the entire building resigned with teachers names attached to the side of the cement wall with the strongest fucking adhesive known to man!

School starts Monday and I'm working Sunday. Shit!

The office staff has 1 person in charge of registration, 1 receptionist, 1 bookkeeper and ME (trying to hold it all together). The staff needs Valium piped into the drinking water!!!
