I don’t save it now...

but I distinctly remember my mother’s canister set. There were five containers, in descending size order: Flour, Sugar, Coffee, Tea, and Grease. The grease one had an insert that went in the top. It...

Our 10 y.o. cat has Epilepsy...

We first noticed him having seizures several years ago. We had to convince the vet‘s office that he was actually having epileptic seizures, because they said it is not that common. The only thing...

and was sad to see it. Every so often I would meet a student who would be smarmy with me (“Oh, Mrs. BayAreaSub! What a lovely sweater you are wearing today!”) while I knew they were rotten to others...

several packets of ham, plus the ham bone, on Christmas after the big meal. We have already used one packet to make a macaroni and cheese dish with ham and veggies, and tomorrow night I will defrost...

I enjoy The Orville.

The first two seasons were on Fox, and we were looking forward to Season 3. Next year it is moving to a streaming service (can’t remember which one). I would consider it a Star Trek cousin, but quite...

My son found the hymn for me! The reason we couldn’t figure out the lyrics was that the words were Welsh. It’s a Welch lullaby sometimes sung at Christmas. The title is “Suo Gan”.

Fx A Christmas Carol: Need help

We watched the Fx version of A Christmas Carol last night. Most people who have given their opinion of it online absolutely HATED it, but we actually enjoyed seeing the different take on the familiar...

Some Children See Him

This song is not as well known as some of my other favorites, but I always try to find some version of it to listen to this time of year.

We call it “Feline Paralysis”

I love that term! My husband and I will say, “Honey, can you bring me _____? I have C.O.L.” (Cat on Lap). Maybe we’ll start using your term.

“Is there a point to rejecting jobs...”

Earlier this week a job came up for Boys PE at a middle school. I ignored it, and apparently so did everyone else, as it stayed on AESOP all afternoon and into the evening. I rejected it right before...

are great suggestions. Just a warning: If you are driving, and plan in visiting Muir Woods, make sure you go online and reserve a parking spot. My husband and I visited this summer, and those who had...

I can tell you that sometimes I will pass by a teacher in a hallway, and casually say, “Looking forward to being in for you next week.” There will be a blank look on the teacher’s face. Turns out the...

Welcome back!

School doesn’t start back until the middle of next week here. I’ve got a few jobs booked for the middle of September. Come December I’ll be starting my 22nd year of subbing.

It all depends...

on how the district has it set up. My district allows teachers to designate up to five subs as their “preferred subs.” I will get an email that lets me know a teacher has a job available for me as a...

I am.

The teachers’ union negotiated a raise for the new contract, and subs always get a raise when the teachers do. Not earth shattering, but I’ll take it!

I bought a bottle of scented detergent...

Plus (and I only sub for elementary) a good idea is to grab a sheet of paper and a pencil, walk around the classroom, and to sketch out a seating chart. I use it to keep track of names, and also mark...
