Happy October!!

October Currently.  Let's do this.
I'm feeling so on top of things since it's actually October 1st and I didn't forget to link up with {Farley}...
I love any televised music event, so loving The Voice is a given.  But tonight I'm torn because I Heart Radio Night 2 is on and Justin Timberlake has me temporarily distracted.  Perfect grading-papers-television, except I don't have any papers to grade.    

Luckily, I got my new iPhone yesterday and I can't stop playing with it.  

So really I should be doing something productive but I'm overstimulated and can't focus.  

I want nothing.  Things are good.  

But I NEED to get grades in the gradebook.  My one responsibility since Miss M has taken over the classroom, and I keep dragging my feet.  

Trick or Treat?!?!  No question.  Always go for the treat.  Ok I'm not going to give any great advice here, but here's a fun story.  I grew up in Iowa, specifically in Des Moines, and apparently it is the only city in the country that requires you to tell a joke as the "trick" during trick or treating, and let's just say I never loved trick or treating.  I hated being forced to talk to strangers tell jokes.  Then in COLLEGE I realized that NO ONE ELSE DOES THAT and that kids everywhere just walk up to houses and are handed candy without doing anything to earn it!!!  

Now that I think about that last one, maybe I should have put "trick" since I was clearly fooled for years.  Now I find it odd to just hand kids candy when they knock on my door.    


  1. haha! Your treat story is too funny! :) And I love your "wanting". I totally should've put the same thing. Have a great evening!

  2. That's cool that you have to tell jokes to get a treat! It's certainly different!
