Back To School Night

For the first time ever preparing for Back to School night was a breeze. My normal routine is to lose my mind and go crazy between the time the kids go home and the time that BTS night starts. I am usually so disorganized and messy that I spend the majority of my time "hiding" stuff to make the room look presentable. For some strange reason though I have been able to maintain a VERY clean room for the past 4 weeks. I found myself killing time waiting for BTS to start. What a weird sensation - I have never experienced that before. I actually had time to go out with another teacher and enjoy an actual sit down dinner before the big event. WOW!!!

The flip side of this however is that this year I had the worst ever attendance in the history of BTS night. I had only 8 families show up out of 19.

The moral of the story -

-keep a clean room - few parents.

Keep a messy room - the whole damn town shows up!!!

Good night

First Post

Yeah - My first post.


I went to a concert this weekend. My first one in a LONG time. I went to see Chayanne, Marc Anthony and Alejandro Fernandez at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View. It was GREAT!

Here is my review:

Marc Anthony - Good singer, not great to look at. A little to skinny - looked malnourished and sick. His style reminded me of Sammy Davis Jr.

Chayanne - I was really not into Chayanne before the concert but he was good. He is of course quite attractive and can move. I enjoyed his music a lot. Keep on smiling Chayanne!!!

Alejandro Fernandez - What can I say - it was a dream come true to go see him. Yes, he was the best in my opinion. I was expecting to hear a lot of his latest music but was pleasantly surprised to hear most of his music performed with a great mariachi band. It didn't hurt to see him dressed in full Charro attire- yeah-baby - A true Papi Chulo!


I have to get out and go to more concerts ...

Maybe I should start the MsAbcMom get out of the house fund!
