I am curious about how they told you to attack the intruder with students in the room. Did they suggest that all the students participate? Are the windows in the room low enough for the kids to go out of? With all the nuts out there in the world, I can understand the need for such training.

Today was both tiring and rewarding all rolled up in one.

Why oh why do I punish myself? I insist that just about anything I buy has to be 100% cotton. I have a 90 inch table cloth and topper that is all cotton. I washed them and when they were dry, I just tossed them in a pile. Of course they got all wrinkled. So now I am standing at the ironing board and I have to keep stopping because I can't stand too long. It is going to take me at least one hour to iron this stupid tablecloth because I just tossed it in a pile to get all wrinkled. I hate taking my pain pills. They leave my mouth so dry. I will just muddle through. Get up and iron, sit down, let pain subside, iron some more, etc. I will get my nice stool that I can sit on and iron while sitting down. It even has little steps for my short little legs.

They make beautiful polyester tablecloths. It's just about the only thing I will buy in polyester. Doesn't stain as easily as natural fibre and comes out of the dryer looking good.

That's what the stool is for...

Indeed it is. There are moments when I am muddling through and then I remember the stool. It has saved me from so much pain standing. Thank you. Sometimes I think I just enjoying punishing myself.

And they are less expensive. 100% cotton anything is always costing more.
