Plastic pumpkins and clean cars...

In one of my classes Monday, we had to make a teacher-made material to use in the classes we intern in. A teacher-made material? Basically something that can be used a toy that's made out of craft/household items. My mind was blank. I ended up getting some orange Halloween goody bags, drawing faces on them, and stuffing them with newspaper. They were supposed to be pumpkins. How did the kids react? All of them tried to eat them, or at least chewed on the top. One little boy (he used to be my favorite) threw his in the dirty diaper bin. Fine, then, if that's how you feel about it.

Chiffon fabric is evil. I'm not even joking. Today has been a long, busy day, and I was exhausted when I got home. I wanted to make my chiffon neck scarf for my costume. It should have been simple- a 18" square. Ha. I got frustrated just from trying to cut it. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.

I had to drive Mom's car to school today, because they were going to try to get the tire fixed. So I get home, and the first thing I do is look at my tire. I notice that the wheel is very shiny and clean (they're usually disgusting-I haven't washed my car in probably 6 months), which is suspicious. Then I notice that the car itself is very can actually see a reflection on it. I'm thinking, "No, they didn't." I had to touch the car to realize that Mom and Dad had washed it! After they took the Beetle Bug to get the tire fixed, they gave it the first bath it's had in months. My parents are so sneaky. In a good way, this time. =)

Until next time,
