Flash in the Pan: Flash


The neck was so tight, and he kept tugging at it as the choking sensation became increasingly uncomfortable. The train was much too slow, and it was far too crowded. The closeness of strangers was not appealing in the least.

The heat became increasingly intense. It was as if he were in a furnace. The train was never this hot, he had to get off. Why hadn’t his stop come up yet? A flash of light flickered before his eyes, and then he saw the flames coming closer as they devoured the other passengers in their path.

First Full Day of Christmas Vacation!!!

Here's hoping that Vacation is better than the weeks leading up to it. Let me fill you in on the events since Thanksgiving and you'll understand why I am hoping it is better or at least illness free. Not only has my mini me been sick but it's put me under the weather as well. 

Almost Vacation Time!!

Tomorrow is the last day of school before Christmas Vacation! It's only a half day so that means today is my last chance to ensure everything is completed before then. Theresa has already made the mandatory cookie purchase for Santa Clause.
