    You definitely deserve a TGIF.

    Financially, we won't be able to do any kind of savings until this time next year(Chapter 13 will be done and paid off). Plus, with the way Clint's job is looking, him getting a second job may be the key to survival(just getting by). He's one of the few people at the shop to have over 30 hours for the week. Last week, he was the only one who had 50 hours. Even though this is the slow season, its dead. Most of the guys are either looking for a second job or looking for a new full time job entirely. I've even thought about getting a second job, but Clint said that shouldn't be my responsibility, it should be his.

    You seem very relieved, which is good to hear, as opposed to stressed. "TGIF" should be about letting go of the week-time's worries and embracing some celebration and relaxation times for the weekend. It sounds like that's where you're at

    Hope you are doing okay. I have been thinking about all my teacher friends today, with this horrible news. Stay safe.

    Thank You.
    There is no way we can protect ourselves or the students from such things. My HS has an in house "police force" of moonlighting city police officers and state troopers so we are safer than most. I am grateful for them.

    Prayers for the families who have lost loved ones in this horrible event.

    My husband and middle son just left to do the Santa run on the Fire Truck around our district. My husband is Santa and my son is his Elf that hands out candy canes.

    I am so proud of them today for bringing a little happiness to a grief stricken, weary world.

    Good for them. I hope they have fun and that those they interact with do as well.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    I have a friend that dresses as Santa every year and he loves it. Glad to see your husband did that.

    Apparently my 14 yr old got choked up when He and Santa arrived at a door after walking down a long driveway and they could hear a little girl yelling "Mommy, Mommy Santa's Here!" He told his father that he wants to be the FH Santa some day. My husband said that they went through double the amount of candy canes than other years. It seems that many families made a point of being around today. Even some adults without kids were happy to see them. They were given some delicious homemade cookies, by one couple.
