You Know You’re a Teacher When…

Hello Blogosphere Blogship Bloggers Friends,

I hope November has treated you kindly.  Mine was full of everything-I-can-turn-into-a-turkey-I-shall school activities, about 24 hours of West Virginia, too many hours on the ENDLESS INTERSTATES OF KENTUCKY, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and one piece of actual turkey (I hate plain ole turkey, but I eat a tiny piece on Thanksgiving Day to make my mother happy).

(I actually made the statement to Brett that if I ever am in charge of Thanksgiving Dinner-HAHAHA- that I am OVERTHROWING THE ESTABLISHMENT and we’ll be serving chicken. Call it Occupy Thanksgiving).

(He didn’t go for it).

November was also filled with a little bit of Pinterest (ok, maybe a lot)… I saw somebody posted this and I was about to raise the Gospel Hand on some of these.
