A teacher, stressed out with school, his band, and the community theater play he’s got a huge role in, invites an EMT to do a presentation in his class. On the very day the EMT is presenting, the teacher has an actual heart attack during class. IN school. In front of his students. The kind where his body thoroughly shuts down. The EMT springs into action, does all his mighty First Responder business, saves the teacher’s life, keeps a classroom full of worried high schoolers calm until the ambulance carries their teacher away.

Okay, it’s not like this is an emergency. I don’t need anyone’s kidney. Just really great ideas for yearbook themes.
Last night, after a few family board games, Husband and I snuck into the office* so he could show me some photos he’s been working on. Have I mentioned that he’s brilliant, photo-wise? He also started blogging **recently, but it’s mostly pretty, pretty photos (the words come, too, though). Anyway, so the Kids were playing Christmas music on the iPod and dancing around the family room. Vigorously.
I love, love it when there’s nothing to do.
For more than fourteen years, I have considered my job as an exercise in futility. The job? Motherhood. The futility? Everything I do today must be redone tomorrow, and nobody notices a single thing I do… unless I don’t do it. Over and over and over.
You know how some people are insufferable about telling you how cute their kids are? I just want you all to know I’m refraining.
Last week I talked to Mrs. Hall’s 4th grade class about all things authory. We had a pretty good time, if I do say so myself. They had good questions and great ideas.
