It is FREEZING here!!! We got up Monday morning and go out to the car to take the kids to school, and my new tire had a flat. Seems someone ran over a giant screw. Dwight had already left for work (seems to happen every time I have a flat tire) so I was on my own. Dwight suggested I just keep the kids home from school...rude. I decided to teach Calvin how to change a flat instead. What a man.

The kids finally got to school at about 10:30. Then today at about 10:30 I got a call from the school to come pick up my kids. The power was out and they couldn't heat the building. "All students MUST be evacuated" <---you'd think it was a bomb threat. Put a jacket on already. That's two days of schedule ruining.

Kids today! Do they really need heat??!! I don't think so.

What are they, cold blooded snakes? I don't think so. That school needs to grow a pair!

Believe it or not, there are probably some parents out there who would sue the school district if their kids had to try and learn in a slightly chilled school. These are parents that have no lives, of course.

I hate messed up schedules. Gty went out today to move his old little Honda Civic from behind my car so I could drive Beebs to school. It wouldn't start. He opened the hood and a freakin' rabbit jumped out! Needless to say it set me back a bit. Then I was late picking her up cuz... uh... cuz I was. The teacher scolded me. Whatev. Like she has better things to do than wait for me.

^^^Tell Gty those afternoon delights are getting you in trouble.

But srsly Hot Pants. You are a true gem for changing your own tire....or having your kid do it even. I woulda cried over the phone for Shed to come home and help me.

I always know if the home phone rings during the day it's probably the school. Don't they know I have things to do?

Maybe you can teach me how to change a flat tire because I have no clue.

I don't even know if I could change a flat tire much less teach my kid to! Good job. And really, they'd send the kids out to recess when their's snow on the ground, but then send them home if the heat goes out. Stupid.
