Old and abandoned in Tennessee

Download word art here

You know that while I was taking photos of all those beautiful views in Tennessee I also had to photograph some abandoned places too.

I just love these and wanted to share them with you.  (Whether you like it or not.  lol!)

There were a couple of times when we stopped  at what looked like an abandoned home only to learn that it wasn't abandoned at all and we were actually in someone's driveway.  Luckily, the people of Tennessee are super nice!























I wish you could have seen my reaction when this chicken showed up out of no where...



Even though the people of Tennessee are super nice, we decided not to investigate this place too much.  lol!

An interesting twist!

So, my principal came into my building this morning and was just kind of standing there so I pointed out to him that I was expecting to see him dressed in  green fur today.

Get it-----green fur-----cause he's The Grinch.

Don't feel bad, it took him a second to get it too.  Then he handed me a bag and said that he was at Target yesterday and bought me some crayons. 

Sure enough, inside the bag were 9 boxes of crayons to help with replace all the crayons my class had stolen.

I laughed and said I knew the crayons weren't really for me and he was just trying to make me feel guilty for calling him The Grinch.  He assured me that he had actually bought them for me.

Well played, Universe, well played....

The universe has sided with The Grinch!

OK, you know that old saying about how a positive attitude being everything?  Well, I decided to give it a try since it's so easy to have a bad attitude when you're stressed out.

So, Wednesday morning after the alarm went off but before I got out of bed, I said out loud, "OK, universe, starting today I am going to have nothing but great days.  The best days ever!"

I headed to school confident that the universe would take care of me.  Boy, was I disappointed!  Wednesday wasn't a great day but it wasn't a bad day either.  At least, not until there was poop on my classroom floor.

Yeah, you read that right. POOP  on my floor!

One of the kids had an accident and didn't say anything. Not even when it started falling out of his shorts onto the floor.

The universe has an evil sense of humor!

On Thursday, I got out of bed smiled and tried again.  Unlike Wednesday, this was going to be the best day ever.  And it was going pretty good, until I got to school and locked myself out of my classroom twice before 8 o'clock.

That's right.....locked out two times before 8 AM and I don't even have to be there until 8:10. 

Now, you're probably thinking the same thing I was thinking.....

The universe was trying to tell me to get out of there!  If I wanted to have a great day I needed to be at the mall or the beach or back home in my bed. 

NO, that' not what the universe was saying at all.  The universe wasn't trying to send me a message at all.  It was laughing at me! 

I know it was laughing at me because while I was locked out of my classroom my car keys were locked in the room.  Even though I wanted to leave.....I wasn't going anywhere.

The universe has an evil, evil sense of humor!

If you still don't believe that the universe is laughing at me, remind me to tell you the story of my non-expired, expired credit card.

Dealing with the stress...

One of you commented that I should go to "a happy place" since  the stress level this week is off the charts.  So, here are more pictures from our Tennessee vacation.  These were actually taken on the morning of my birthday and the rime ice was beyond beautiful!

If any of you know and/or run into Russell Brand would  you please ask him to come and take me away from all of this?

Wish me luck

OK in eight short hours the last week of school before Christmas starts.  This week is usually fun but exhausting.  Now, I'm afraid that it will simply be exhausting.

I'll be trying to sneak in some fun when The Grinch isn't looking.
