    I am bouncing off the walls right now. I got a call from my mother in law that my father in law is awake, coherent, has had his oxygen tube removed, and is talking. This is after we were told he had a 20% chance to live less than a week ago. I am ecstatic, but stuck in the classroom until 4:15 and am too excited to move on with the assignment as planned...(plot chart based on Daphne De'Mauer--The Birds). I changed up the assignment to draw storyboards based on important scenes from the story, and to take their favorite scene and "dress it up" for Halloween.
    Now that the kids are excited about this, I have no idea what to do to get myself through the day!...

    Any suggestions!

    Pull the fire alarm and sneak out in the confusion.

    More good news for FT? He's on a roll! (Except, I suppose, the news that his father-in-law had a 20% chance to live.)

    Do what we do: surf the BBS.

    Every question should be answered; "Eight ball and a hooker!"

    Just tell the kids you have to step out for a minute and don't come back. They'll get the idea.

    And that's great news, :)
