Or not so newsworthy but good for filling space...whatever.
*If my weather widget spoke true today, then the temperature here was 87 degrees.
*That is very, very warm.
*I had a turtleneck on less than a week ago if memory serves.
*Don't trust memory.
*Memory ain't what it used to be these days.
*I think. I don't really know for sure. I can't remember...
*I had four thousand meetings yesterday.
*Today I had none and got to leave school at a reasonable hour.
*Yet another one of my charges was targeted for suspension this afternoon.
*I'm running out of kids to teach.
*The Stalker (who has followed me since fourth grade and through three different schools) is getting all twitchy because he's not suspended from school and is getting taught so much that he can't take it any more.
*He's considering getting suspended just for a break.
*Pretty soon everyone will be back and things will return to normal. He just needs to hang in there.
*Who gets suspended the week grades close? Why? Why in God's name would anyone do that???????
*Last week to make a difference.
*Last week to squeak by.
*Last week to ensure that I don't have to teach them AGAIN next year.
*WHY WOULD THEY DO THIS TO ME?????
*For the record, I try to keep kids off suspension from school for as long as I can. It's a last resort.
*So you can imagine how horrific a kid has to be for me to not intervene on his behalf.
*I knit some sock today.
*Three whole rounds while I rode the little exercise bike.
*Yup. I'm amazing. I should get a medal or something.
*I rode the little exercise bike because Wii Fit was mean to me on Monday and needs to sit and think about its attitude.
*From a kid in my class today regarding the whole sorry situation: "Sometimes Wii Fit is a little TOO honest..."
*The Stalker dared me to go see the school nurse and complain of a "Wiinjury."
*She was busy.
*And probably wouldn't have been too impressed by someone who got a permanent leg cramp during a short run on Wii Fit...
*It was a beautiful day, though. A leg cramp and a rapidly thinning student population didn't really make a dent in my positive outlook.
*Especially when there were no meetings to attend and the Wii Fit was in time out.
That's Wednesday! We're halfway through the work week and on the downward slide! If I (and my merry band of miscreants) can hold it together for just one more week, we will finally be on Spring Break and can forget all about each other for seven days. I'm going to cling to that. Wii Fit isn't going to be in time out for much longer and next week is full to bursting with meetings.
And the temperatures are dropping even as I type...
