Random Tuesday and Coffee Chat

I'm linking up with Stacy's Random Thoughts.
 Let me just start by saying, it's been a helluva week!  I don't mean the election! I mean work.  I had a teacher leadership training Friday before last.  Stomach virus on Monday (it was awful!). Our students were off school Tuesday last week because our school is used as an election site.  Teachers had to report to work, though.  Today I will be on a field trip.  When can I actually teach?  Not for a while.  I'm taking off to have my shoulder surgery.  Please keep me in your prayers Thursday.

And now... I don't like to talk politics on my blog, and I'm not going to.  This is just a reminder that we Americans are bigger than this!  One person wins an election.  That's the way it is.  My friends are still my friends regardless of who they voted for.  Let's handle this, both sides, with dignity and grace.  It's time to show our true character.  One man doesn't determine the fate of the entire country.  We will survive and thrive.  We're Americans! (And if you need a review of civics to remember why we use the Electoral College and not the popular vote, like I did, check out this video I posted. It's worth 5 minutes because it makes it so perfectly clear.)

And now, this commercial break.  Not really!  I get so frustrated with commercials.  But there are a few that make me laugh every time.



  And another!

That cracks me up every time!

 And now it's time for Coffee Chat!
You can take these November chats to update about your 
personal task for the month, or;   
share a Currently post:  
what you're reading, listening, watching, eating, wearing, etc.

Right now I'm reading a courtroom/family drama called Defending Jacob.  It took a while to get into it, but I like it.  It reminds me a great deal of House Rules by Jodi Piccoult which was about an autistic boy who is accused of murder.  The boy in Defending Jacob is not labelled autistic, but his behaviors indicate that he would be on the spectrum somewhere.  I'm over halfway finished, and I will write a review when I'm done.  I love to read!  What are you reading right now?

I especially enjoy keeping track of my books on Goodreads.  You know how sometimes you see a book that sparks your interest, so you get it, then you realize you've already read it?  Goodreads helps me keep up with books I've already read as well as those I want to read.

And that's a wrap!

Positive vibes for your upcoming surgery - pray that all goes well.
And I love your encouraging message for your fellow Americans. Whoever is elected is only ONE man - he only has the power to divide a nation if the people allow him. Kindness and Love are the way now. :)

Love Jodi Piccoult - I'm going to have to look that book up.
