Tornado, Gun Threat, Earthquake? It must be the end of the world

and I feel fine. No, really. After last Fridays tornado in Warren County we get a gun threat at the Middle School. Today everyone was going to die. Or so it said on the bathroom wall. Now, I do believe whoever wrote that should be strung up by their toenails. But I also doubted that anyone was going to do anything. And they didn't. Middle Schoolers by definition are DRAMATIC. But they had extra security today. And of coarse, most kids stayed home anyway. Not mine, Lucy said she was not going to give up her perfect attendance(?!?!) and Rachel said since she was up anyway she might as well go, but please come pick her up before the basketball game that was scheduled to start at One. Harrison lives for missing school and spent the morning getting ready for his camp out tonight.

And then there was the stinking earthquake. At 4:37. I do not like to be woken up. Especially when I already have a terrible cold and feel gross. And then I couldn't fall back to sleep. Yuck! Lucy said Bandit was asleep in her room when the earthquake hit and he was very unhappy. But then went right back to sleep. Lucky dog!

So what will it be next week? Floods? Asteroid? Gamma rays?

Its sad that things like this happen in schools now. I don't ever remember being scared to attend school. I pray that things get better in the future especially with me teaching and my son going through school.

Seriously, what's next in your neck of the woods?

I am glad that you didn't allow a threat to work you or your family up.

So I hear things come in threes. Maybe we are done with the bad news for a little while.
