Yahoo, it's Thursday! Thank God, tomorrow is Friday! PAYDAY Friday, no less!
I had planned to show you pictures of my great new cut and color, but for some reason Blogger will not let me upload any of my pictures! Arrrgh! So I guess we'll just have to catch up without the benefit of photos. Anyway, here's how my week has gone:
Monday: President's Day. Many people were off that day, but it was Parent/Teacher conference day in my school district. Out of 6 students, only one parent showed. But I did have 4 phone conferences, which was almost as good. Spent time with Baron, which is always nice.
Tuesday: Gold Day, which in my school district is PR code for "really boring training for teachers so we can say our teachers are trained on up-to-the-minute stuff" day. But for me, it was Science training, which was actually semi-informative, and then I got to work in my room with my assistant. So we got things done.
Wednesday: I had to go observe at a special school for kids with behavior problems. It was helpful and sad, at the same time. I DID get to see a couple of my former students, which was the sad part, because they wouldn't let me see them face-to-face, only from afar. They are both still transitioning to their new school and they were afraid it would upset them. I miss one of them very much. More time with Baron, but we just zonked out and went to sleep.
Today: Crazy busy at school. Got scratched by a student. Aaron home sick with strep. His face is flushed and he is so droopy-eyed. We have been reading books and watching cartoons in my bed. Slipped away to get my hair cut and colored, and to get orange cream bars for Aaron.
Tomorrow: Payday Friday. Probably more craziness at school. Was supposed to be a movie date with Baron, but if Aaron is still not well, I will probably be at home. Sigh. Baron and I have so few weekend nights with no kids.....oh well. Rachael is going to a play with her boyfriend and his parents. I guess at least the 2 older boys will do something with their dad.
Weekend: Rachael is going on her confirmation retreat. Some or all of the boys will hang out with their dad. I was hoping to have some time to myself and possibly stay over at Baron's with him and his girls Saturday night. Who knows? Definitely sleeping in on Saturday. I need to buy some jeans. Attempt to psych myself up for next week. (sigh again). I hate my job these days, I'm sorry, but I really do. I just try to make it to Friday every week.
So that's it for me for this week. Hope your week has been relatively peaceful and your weekend is restful.
