Right out front!

I love this car. I have seen it around our town for a couple of years now, and it gives me such a chuckle!

The minivan with the flames! This car's owner must have some sense of humor. I love the irony, but wouldn't have the guts to drive this car.

And now! Now! It's been parking on my street! In fact, I took this picture from my front yard - it was right in front of my house! The family's teenage son is now driving it to school.

Classic. The 16-year-old boy who would dare to drive the minivan with flames... That's gotta be one self-assured young man!


So, am I back? Was I gone? It definitely seems that I have been on a blogging hiatus. It wasn't deliberate; I just couldn't bring myself to write anything. I kept telling myself, "just write anything, get back in the habit," but then months somehow went by...

I have some big news to share. I am going to start working on January 4. I am doing a long-term sub position at my old job (7th grade science teacher). The current teacher is going on maternity leave from Jan. 4 - Mar. 25, and the school called me to see if I would come back and teach for her.
It's not ideal timing for my son, who will have to go to preschool 5-days-a-week instead of 3. He'll also need to stay there later in the day. He's not happy about it.
It's a good opportunity for me, though! I've been out of the classroom for 9 years, and this is a great way for me to dust off my skills for a few months, to test out the waters again, before I really "go back to work." And we can really use the money!

The minivan is great!

Congrats on the new job!

Cool flames. I think most 16 year olds are delighted to have ANYTHING to drive!

Good luck with the subbing!

Good luck with the job. Our purse springs are definitely feeling tight right now so I can relate.

Ditto the above commentary!
It's good to know we have a scientist among our loco bloggers.

And, last but not least: "And we can really use the money!"

(Any you can't use - you know how to contact me!)

I love the minivan, too. It rocks!

Back in the classroom!!! Good for you.
