Stressing, and Preparing

I've been up since 4 working on progress reports. The website crashed about 10 minutes ago, as I was writing in missing assignments to explain the low grades. This is after staying an hour late yesterday to catch up on grading (but ended up having 2 parent conferences.) When I get to school, I need to get the kids' Halloween treats together, do my newsletter and write the district assessment grades on the progress reports. Today is like our Friday because we are going on a field trip tomorrow, then coming back for the carnival. Joy.

I did take time to work on my collage for this book last night. I got a couple of ideas for scenes while listening to my soundtrack yesterday, and here's what I came up with:

Yes, I used Jared and Adrianne last year as my models, but that was historical. This one is contemp.


It's a road trip, and it's snowy, and heading to Seattle, so that's why the HWY 90 sign. He's a greenie, so that's why the recycle sign. But he had to borrow his brother's cool car. Thanksgiving may or may not play a part (my last best friends story was also set at Thanksgiving. Hmmm.) He's dogsitting, so that's why the puppy (a chug, isn't it cute?) I'm thinking about having them enter a poker game to get money, and the radiator is going to be an issue throughout--all the motels will have either too much heat or not enough.

Meanwhile, I haven't written in 2 days. I feel ready to pop.

Okay, going to see if the website is back up....
