Vacation Mode Starting Tomorrow

Finally, it's the start of the semestral break for me and my students. I'm glad to be having almost two weeks of stress-free days ahead of me. Tomorrow, I won't have classes anymore because it's the start of the semestral break for my La Salle students and Naoya will be having his Halloween party in school. I'm cancelling other student. Ralph still needs to go to school in the morning, though but will be home around 2 in the afternoon.

Tomorrow I'm planning to go to the gym early in the morning to workout. I need to take some things home from my locker since we will be gone for a week. Yep, we'll be going home to Naga come Sunday. We need to go home to sign some documents for a home loan that we made on behalf of my sister-in-law. I also need to pick-up my driver's license card. (My temporary license expired yesterday.) This trip will be an exciting one because we'll be bringing Black Beauty with us. It's been a while since we drove all the way to Bicol. We usually ride the bus going home to the province. But as we all know, the Halloween season is a very busy one here in our country and most Filipinos go home to their provinces during this time of the year. We expected that it will be very hard for us commuting this time. I am looking forward to the side trips that we can make during the long ride.

Tomorrow, I will also be preparing Ralph's costume for Saturday's Family Boo-tiful Day! As I have written earlier, we will be having a Halloween-themed Family Day at Ralph's school on Saturday. The kids in his school are excited to attend because it will also be their chance to get some treats. Ralph will be dancing "Thriller" with all the other Grade 2 students and "Ghostbusters" with a selected group. I am converting his UN Day Mexican costume to a Scarecrow. I already bought some face paint last night from SM because we will be painting his face like a Jack-O-Lantern. I also bought some manila paper that I will be cutting into strips to serve as twigs. I also need to buy some treats for the kids tomorrow.

I will still be visible on-line though as we will be bringing my husband's laptop and his wireless internet connection. We will be staying with Tita Ops and we can probably enjoy her DSL connection.

How about you? How will you be spending your Halloween?
