I never in my life thought that it would be over a month between blog posts but I am so busy at school during the day that by the time I get home and I am ready to fall into bed. I know that isn't a really good excuse but it is all I have. . . .that and the fact that nothing interesting has been going on in my life and the fact that I have been in a funk and haven't really felt like "talking".
School is busy. . . .very busy! I love going to work everyday and I enjoy being with my students BUT the discipline is something that I can't seem to get a handle on. My students talk and talk and talk and talk and then talk some more. My fit throwing student is doing much better with his behavior and fits. Thank goodness we all seem a little less stressed because we aren't always waiting for the fit to erupt!
The first weekend of November, Mr. Giggles and I went to Canton for the Trade Days. I only bought one Christmas present but I did enjoy looking at the different things there were to see BUT I can always do without the crowd. I do not like crowds and when you add the dogs, strollers, wagons, carts and people not paying attention to anything around them, I am a little stressed. We camped at a nice campground we just happened upon! We made reservations at another park and Mr. Giggles let them know that we would be late getting in that evening and they said it wasn't a problem. Well, we got to the park around 11:30 pm and there wasn't anywhere for us to stay. We were tired and not sure what we were going to do. We stopped to get gas and I looked through the phonebook to see what other parks I could find and found two on another road we were familiar with. We drove into the first park and almost didn't make it out because the roads were way too narrow and the turns too tight. We found the next one and luckily found a place to park. The park was very nice and we plan on staying there again. This trip was much easier on the road because of our new truck.
