I think the job of teacher takes a lot out of you, and one of the things is the joy of any holiday, because there always seems to be something super-stressful around any holiday. This week–the carnival. I’m with the coach, who is in charge of the haunted house, which makes the most money from anything at the carnival. He doesn’t want to do it, but he’s asked to do it, even though he does OTHER things that he doesn’t have to do. Anyway. It’s a huge pain and not at all fun.
Add to that, Fred’s been having knee problems since early this year. He’s done steroid shots a couple of times but now is having surgery. On Halloween.
Add to that, it’s still HOT. Like, unseasonably hot. Ugh.
