You wait in the barroom, as you do for dinner, and they take your egg order (scrambled, omelette, fried, etc.). When they called us in, I was amazed by the array of food: a huge platter of bacon and linguica; a platter of pork chops; since most of us ordered scrambled eggs, a platter of those; a platter of Basque sourdough bread & tons of butter for it; a plate of french fries; and even a soy sauce-sized bottle of wine. You are supposed to choose one drink, but they were nice enough to let us have more than one choice. I was in heaven...They also had this really yummy tart cherry jam (I think for the pork chops, but the kids loved it). My friend ordered an omelette, and it was huge, with cheese, mushrooms & I believe onion.

I am super-excited to share I suddenly obtained a 100 day substitute position at the local Gorman school! I am teaching the K/1 class for a teacher on maternity leave. Still scrambling to get it together, but really enjoying the class and kids! It's a very pretty campus, and larger than I expected. The teachers and staff are very nice, and the students are a joy. No sign of Harriet the ghost, yet...
The monkey is back at school at PMLC. Hoping the homework load is going to be a reasonable amount, so I don't have to turn into an evil witch to make sure he gets it done!
This week, I have to plan for my Back to School night, attend the monkey's BTSN, AND I have an HOA board meeting. Yikes...On Saturday I hosted my monthly storytime and craft, which had to be moved to Chatterpillar, since the Mercantile has closed (so sad, not sure why...). We read Petite Rouge (a Cajun Red Riding Hood) & Little Red Cowboy Hat, then made cowboy hats out of newspaper. It was very fun!!
Hub isn't feeling well, & of course they are working him like an automaton at work. Hope he feels better...

Had a Norton anti-virus 'house party' on Sunday. It was very informative, and if anyone wants, I have extra discount cards to save money on purchasing Norton (which is the program I use). Amy was the lucky winner of a free year of Norton!! The Free Norton Online Family program is a great way to keep your kids from accessing inappropriate info on the internet, too.
Well, enough procrastinating, time to type the minutes for the chamber of commerce (if you are awaiting PMLC SAC minutes, those are in the hands of the director & SAC pres., those were done Sunday nite!!
