Okay, here to tell all of you HELLO! and pass out some of these:

Since we're talking retail therapy:
Bath & Body Works have their 3-Wick Candles on sale for $8 (normally $20), in stores only. My hubs told me, when I mentioned the sale this morning, "Yeah, that's exactly what we need: more candles!" I chose to ignore the obvious sarcasm and take him at his word. I came out with three and two holders. Don't want to disappoint him or anything.

I'm putting in my vote for Christine's message saying: "Thinkin of you all."

I_Heart: Whoa! How scary. So glad it all worked out... yuck about the tires though. So expensive. I'm dreading the day we need ones for my SUV. Candace knows all about that!

Also adding a question... because I'm clueless on such things and you guys are the All-Knowing™!:

Our class parent is organizing a joint teacher gift (we gave her money and she's purchasing a gift certificate on behalf of the children). Should I get her something beyond this? Do kids normally give out things to their classmates?

Hi RCers,
Stopping to to say hi to all the friends!
Here's another shopping tip-Kipling has lots of things on sale at their website.You can also use a retailmenot code...RMNOT25 gives you 25.00 off 150.00 plus free shipping.

I am finally a bit caught up. I made a big pot of chili yesterday, and got meatballs done today. I divided, then packaged them up and popped them in the freezer. Having some things done ahead is a big help to me.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

We definitely don't buy something for all of the kids!!! That would be crazy!!! But we always get a gift card for the teacher.

Speaking of school...I am so incredibly saddened by the news out of CT from that elementary school shooting. It really makes my heart sad that this is the type of world we live in.

Thanks, Candace. Didn't think so just wasn't sure... Miss M brought home a little gift one of the girls in her class gave her yesterday so it threw me for a loop.

...

It's so very sad and horrific, this story. Makes me want to go and grab Miss M from school and bring her home and hug her for the rest of the day. Can't even begin to imagine what those parents are going through. Tragic.

No on the classmates. I do get a gift in addition to the group gift, but I don't think it's necessary.

Will have to check that out. Never heard of that store.

Good plan to stock the freezer. My stash is embarrassingly low at the moment.

So sad. My kids are all home sick today and I just had a huge talk with them about this. It's terrifying.

I don't blame you for wanting to get Miss M. I would have felt the same way if mine weren't already here.

Totally understand.
Those parents, they are living through an unimaginable terrible tragedy. It is just shocking.

I was being serious. I thought you were putting the extra symbols and letters in your posts on purpose and I couldn't make sense of what they were saying. Once Grumpy Grandma posted about it I realized you probably weren't doing it on purpose so I was making fun of my mistake.

Now I'm guessing it's maybe an Ipad issue? Don't mind me. Sorry!

No. Water got spilled on the keyboard so typing is impossible. She has ordered a new Ipad but I don't think she has it yet. Whatever is wrong with the computer she can still get on the Dis but ..... well you see what happens when she responds!!!

That makes sense, I was wondering.
It's somewhat figure-out-able...maybe she's started a new language-Minnie Latin.
It's always good to hear from her.

This loss is more than the mind can comprehend. Prayers are with the families, first responders, so much trauma.

I keep telling him that there is no thing as "normal". Finding a "normal child" would be like finding a leprechaun riding a unicorn. I should tell y'all about his Santa comments that still have me laughing my rear off every time I think about them. Maybe I'll post them on the FB page b/c they might get me some points here.

Hopefully the 2 weeks will fly by. I hate waiting for test results!!

What I did the years that we did a joint teacher gift, I would give the teacher the gift I was planning on getting them at the end of the year. I would usually get them a gift certificate. This way they could use it to buy things to set up their classroom next year.

I read about that on FB this afternoon, and it just breaks my heart. I can not even begin to imagine the pain they are going through.
