Looks Like I'm in for a Busy Weekend.....


*snort* This was the headline of my city newspaper today! Are they not called speed BUMPS???

I will be having no such fun this weekend....due to our school system canceling school on Monday, teachers and students will be making up the day this Saturday!! We will dismiss the kids 2 hours earlier than usual, and don't you think for one minute that the school will not be full of students! Free babysitting. I have only one question.....who will be cleaning my house and doing laundry at my house on Saturday???

Thanks for showing me some love in regards to my last post....you are my BFF. That's right YOU are:)

School on a Saturday?? What happens with the teachers that went in for the 'optional' work day - they get paid extra?? That is the strangest thing I've ever heard. To make up missed days, we normally tack them on to the end of our school year - or turn a teacher plan day into a normal school day, or schedule 'make up' days during the school year just in case. If we have no days to make-up, we get the scheduled make-up day off.

I think speed BUMPS are skinny & high. Speed HUMPS are the wide ones that are not as high, but longer than a typical speed bump. Does that even make sense? You can go real fast over a hump & not get much air. If u go fast over a bump u may hurt urself . . .

Ok, the Saturday thing is still chapping my a$$. I'd totally call in sick on Saturday. Screw that. I mean, really. Who would watch my kid with daycare closed? I'd have to call in.

School on a Saturday? Weird. And not exactly giving people a lot notice either if they had plans. How do teachers who need day care get it arranged at such short notice?

Speed bumps in my part of the world definitely - a hump would be something entirely different ;) Well, there's speed dating I suppose!

THAT SUX about school on Saturday! I call it a speed bump, but what do I know ????? Keep me posted on the transfer, I hope it goes through :)

Misery loves company!!!! We're working this Saturday too. About 3/4 of our students will show up. We dismiss at 11:45.

As for speed humps... what else will rednecks do after they hit the Piggly Wiggly for their refreshment?

W-H-A-T?!?!?!? School on Saturday?? Is that even legal? We've had eight snow days this year and they are tacking them on to the end of the year. We were supposed to be out on May 25, but now we will get out June 5 or 8th.

I guess the only saving grace is that you will get out two hours earlier than normal.

I feel for you my friend.

No cleaning help here this week. I've already been spoiled as I was complaining that I will have to do my own housework this week.....
