My oldest daughter has both hot and cold patches. One arm or leg, or half her face will be flushed with heat while the rest is comfortable… or cold. Sometimes she will have a smaller patches of cold right next to patches of heat on the same arm or leg. It’s weird and the doctors have no idea what is causing it. I think it has something to do with her fibromyalgia.
I have a full length, black wool circle cloak with a hood. I wear it whenever the weather is dipping down below 20F. I do find it difficult to drive in though so I usually put it on as soon as I get out of the car. The first time one of the teachers I work with saw me in it, he asked why I was wearing it. Really? The temps were in the single digits. With a straight face I told him I was a witch. He believed me.
We will be having an active threat drill this Wednesday. Ours is a huge campus so depending on where the threat is, we either leave campus for a designated safe area, lock the doors and get where we can’t be seen from outside, or, if someone is trying to get in the room, all adults can arm themselves and any students they feel are capable with anything that comes to hand and do whatever it takes to keep students safe. I talked to the teachers I work with and told them to pretend we had already had the argument and I won so I would be staying outside the “safe area” and deal all the damage I could to any intruder.
How much better to be prepared in an emergency than to not have a plan.
Reboot was chipped after he ran off one day and stayed out overnight. We mostly try to keep him inside but I swear his middle name is Houdini. His chip is registered with PetLink and only cost $19.99 for a lifetime registration. So worth it.
I suddenly had a vision of police trying to put cats in a line-up.
Ah, Ravenclaw is my house too. In fact, when we had the students divided into their houses, each teacher was head of one of the houses. I was head of Ravenclaw. We won the house cup 2 years in a row and were barely beaten by Hufflepuff the first year. They had one boy who was a master at finding The Doctor.
Well, Lupin is making sure no one is giving the pie back.
Reboot has learned how to open the front door even when it is shut all the way and the latch has clicked. He also knows how to open the storm door, so we have to make sure the front door is locked or that he is in another room if we are using the front door. One day, not too long ago, he had opened the front door and was pressed up against the storm door where I couldn’t see him and when I opened the storm door to come in the house, he was out like a shot. Good thing he’s chipped. On the other hand, or paw, Database won’t even go near the door when it’s open.
So, Katecst fits right in!
