I am not sure what to call it since I did not get to eat today until nearly 3:00. I went to the cafeteria and picked up my salad at noon, but two misbehaving children, an impromptu parent conference, meeting at the administration office, and another misbehaving student caused things to come to a screeching halt this afternoon. Consequently that included my lunch. I did take an apple to my meeting, however, I did not eat because it was awkward. When I finally did eat lunch, it was in the presence of two teachers who just had to tell me something about someone else...Needless to say, I heard nothing, as I devoured my salad and since I was not going to have an afternoon snack, I enjoyed the chocolate chip cookie that was left on my desk by a student (my secretary said it was safe...hope she liked me today :-)
I came home to a most wonderful piece of news. One of the ladies at church is making dinner for our family tonight, so I don't have to find anything. She is a kind soul who understands the value of being healthy, and always prepares a lovely, nutritious meal for us. I fear that if I had to cook tonight that supper would be peanut butter brownies with chocolate cake for dessert and milkshakes to drink instead of water.
Some days are just like that...even in Australia. (Judith Viorst)
