Halloween on a Monday is really hell.

We had our Halloween parties yesterday and by the end of the school day I felt like I had worked an entire week, but alas there’s four more days to this week.

Then I went home and as most parents of younger children do, we went trick or treating. My kids went to bed over an hour late, now homework done, no spelling lists looked at, and jacked up on all the candy they had before I cut them off.

Today will be a day of tired and crabby students as the sugar high and the later nights are going to catch up with them.

Halloween on a Monday makes for a really long week.

Here are your flakes:
