Since I'm so totally on top of things here, let's see if we can't knock out a Wednesday Night Bullet Post? I might even remember half of the things that happened to me today.
*The Cheerful Teaching Assistant didn't like the school lunch today. So she went out for a sandwich.
*She brought me back a gi-normous peanut butter cup.
*We have a thing for peanut butter cups...
*I have been knitting lots and lots lately.
*Motivation. I haz it. Finally! It's a knitting blog, after all.
*Ironically, I cannot show anything I've knat.
*The season of giving is almost upon me and everything is of the "stealth" variety.
*I'll toss up a bunch of stuff later for your viewing enjoyment.
*Here's a kitty picture. That should tide you over.
|Looks like a turtle, but it's really a cat...|
*We are having a bit of a Dollar Store Kat Kave Krisis over here.
*The Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty loooooves his Dollar Store Kat Kave.
*Turns out the Very Complicated Kitty likes them, too.
*He used to be scared of all the toys, but he takes medicine that makes him happy and now he loves all the toys.
*And steals all the toys.
*I had to put out another DSKK because the AGK looked so sad when he couldn't have his most favoritest thing.
*Maybe he needs the happy medicine...
*I had a meeting at the high school today.
*Had to go see if I could offer some sage words of wisdom that might help out with a freshman who isn't making the transition very well.
*That is an understatement. It is going very, very badly.
*Had him in my class for three years. I try to get away, but they just keep pulling me back in.
*It was a depressing meeting. I think I maybe have issues with "letting go."
*Which is not helped by the fact that they keep pulling me in.
*Before I left to go to the meeting, The Boy For Whom All The World Is A Stage called me back to the classroom:
Ms. Sheep: What?! I'm late, for crying out loud!
BFWATWIAS: Do you have everything you need? Did you bring a pen and something to write on? Do you have notes for this meeting? If you have notes, they should be in your bag. How about water? You've been coughing a lot so I think you should bring some water.
MS: Um...yes. I have all that. I think...wait. Yes! I have all of that stuff. Except the notes. I don't need those. I am really just going to listen and look wise. I don't think I need notes for that.
BFWATWIAS: Wear your glasses like this. (pushes his own glasses down to the end of his nose) That always makes you look smarter.
MS: (mimicking his glasses maneuver) I kind of can't see very well like this. But I do feel smarter...
*My life is now being managed by an 8th grade boy with an overly developed need for attention.
*I was late to the meeting, but I looked wicked smart!
*Depressing meeting. Very depressing. I was all mushy and squishy and just the teeniest bit teary on the drive back to my own school.
*Not too bad...just a little bit girly over the whole thing.
*Which is why the Cheerful Teaching Assistant bought me a gi-normous peanut butter cup for lunch.
*My cold is much better. Hardly coughing at all now.
*I credit the peanut butter cup.
*Stopped at the school library today. I hadn't eaten the peanut butter cup yet and was feeling needy.
*Picked up a copy of Poison Study. Just started it, but am finding it engrossing.
*Bit intense for the average middle school reader, I think. But good reading for kids (and adults) with a solid background in YA literature.
*Not as good as a peanut butter cup, but still a nice thing to have around the house.
We're gonna call this a wrap now. I've reached the point where all I can think about is peanut butter cups and that never ends well. Best for all concerned that I move on with my evening. Maybe eat an apple or something, you know? Meanwhile, I'll wish you all a pleasant Wednesday evening and my wish that you have all the chocolate treats you desire. Or books. Or Dollar Store Kat Kaves.
Whatever floats your boat...
