A day of jumping over children to get to the Kleenex and a big job!

I’m sorry for the lack of post last night- I worked, did only a bootcamp class and had knit night last night where I worked on the dog sweater. Unfortunately I was so exhausted when I got home that I fell asleep even before I got my jammies put on:(. So here I am back today:)


I went to work early, got home late and managed a whole eleven minutes of cardio before I realized I had to go back out:(

I am feeling very pudgy from the lack of running and exercise, and it doesn’t seem to be making much difference to this cold! Yesterday I had my staff workout, but I was freezing during it:(. I think I’ll just go back to my usual workouts!


Well the other shoe dropped at lunch, though thankfully outside rather than in my classroom! I guess some little girls came to play in the sand by him and he didn’t like that so he kicked sand at one and pushed the other and then refused to apologize.  He ran from Dad when I went to talk to him after school and dad’s concern was that he looked upset😳😳😳😳. This is not looking good:(. Wrong response dad!  I’m keeping my fingers crossed it continues to be an only outside problem (yes I realize I’m living in dreamland!)

After school, three other teachers and me tackled the art room. It had become a depository for junk over the years so it looked full and yet we never have any art supplies!  We figure it hadn’t been cleaned out since the 80s as there was stuff in there that we recognized from when we were students!!!  It was a disgusting job- so dusty that I looked like the Ghost of Christmas Past when we were finished, and hard work, but it felt great to get it done!!!  I’ll be able to go order paper and supplies on Monday:)

I should have taken a before and after as the transformation was quite amazing!

Errands/ Shopping:

I feel like I have been all over the countryside tonight as I get ready to go away for the weekend.  I hit Costco for gas, the dollar store for gift wrap and to round out my niece and nephew’s gifts and the mall for a thumb drive. I looked at earbuds too but I want to try out my brother’s this weekend first before I buy.


For the past several years I have been hearing about the David’s Tea advent calendar and everyone who knows I drink a lot of tea is always telling me I should get it. I was never willing to spend the $45 on it and so have resisted, however this year, I got a good deal so I’m trying it out:). Starts tomorrow!

I was just thinking that I could also do a Hallmark movie advent calendar and continue my spree of watching one holiday movie each night:) Hmmmm tea and chick flicks- sounds like perfection:)

Well I’m off to make a list of what I need to do tomorrow:)

Have fun!

  1. Oh no…I hope the boy’s mom responds a bit better than the Dad did to any more issues that arrise. Hopefully the Dad was just concerned until you explained the problem.

    I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the Advent calendar! I considered buying it this year but didn’t know if the money would be worth it. Can you report back once it’s finished?!

    1. Yup hopefully the parents are on board. I guess I’ll find out the first time there is a problem in the classroom.
      I’ll be making the tea a part of my daily post:)

  2. Hoping those parents are at least willing to learn some parenting skills….I’m terrible I’d probably reply to dad’s concern about being upset….I’d be upset too, if I got caught throwing sand at people and pushing them. Being naughty is only fun if you don’t get caught or there are no consequences……Bad me!! The Art Room sounds AMAZING now!

    1. I explained to dad that he was upset because he was in trouble!
      I am very happy with the art room and can’t wait to fill it with nice new supplies!
