Tired Tuesday

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Well glad everyone enjoyed the puns yesterday, they were sent around by our principal, hope he sends more soon... they were a hoot!

I couldn't sleep last nite, was up till 3:30. Somehow managed to get to work. Had to call in principal due to behaviours today. I don't like doing that, but they sit up and listen when (the few times)principal has to talk to them. AT end of day, I found, the behaviours are the same around the whole school. Even the bus driver asked me if we're feeding them candy!! Wonder what the rest of the story is.

Interesting day at school... one boy lost his baby tooth and freaked... had his sister call their mom and he went home. Later another boy had his nose start bleeding out of the blue..... it was hot in our class, and very dry. I told principal that I was on my 8th cup of water!!! Very dry.
But the really interesting stuff happened outside.... we're having the infrastructure put in for new outdoor high school trailer, and they broke through the natural gas line. It was end of day, so kids were warned before they left, but I think the gas co. must have fixed it, because our furnace came on about an hour ago and the water which had also been shut down sputtered back to life about a half hour ago.... just when I had convinced myself not to go to work tonite, cuz it would be a health infringement to be at school with no running water.... wouldn't you know it!! Guess there is school tomorrow after all..

It was WORLD TEACHER DAY today... I wrote rules on the board such, as Be Nice to Teacher, Work Hard, etc. etc....

Anyway, I took about an hour nap before supper - something I never do - but will be taking a sleeping pill tonite...

DH heard on tv today that the "latest" weight loss craze is getting 8 hrs. sleep a nite!!!!

well, must move along, Have a good 8 hr. sleep and here's to successful weight loss to all!!

    Hi Lila
What an interesting day and night, Any ideas why you didn't sleep well? I bet you got some sleep last night.
I don't understand your students, Are you permitted to call in the parents and have conversation with them, This kind of behaviour, I think starts in the home and they should have responsibility for it. Probably, you wouldn't be allowed to do that.
Glad they got the problems solved with the repairs.
You said DH heard about the 8 hours sleep, it has ben on the news here. It really isn't new, Spark always talks about proper rest and weight gain. Give another example, that ABC news made it sound like a new idea is walking and the 10,000 steps, They had stats of what lack of walking does and that USA is one of the lowest in walking , average American less than 5000 steps. The point is, that the sleep issue and walking are not new ideas. Maybe it is time for people to really pay attention.
Well, I hope today is going better for you. Let's get you back to the basics and get moving on your journey.

Monty

    Wow! And I'd only read 2 of them before. My dad was the king of puns. He subscribed to a pun newsletter and even submitted some from time to time. Some of my happiest memories are sharing puns with my dad. Thanks for the chuckles and triggering the good memories!!!

Sunday at work

Sunday, October 03, 2010

Well after fidgeting around the house and getting laundry going and finding the paper towels in the spare room and deciding on supper, I was off to the school. I had gone through a couple of boxes and took a lot of it to school and even got to throw out some of it. Then I spent a couple hours there getting ready for the week and doing up a chart for the book buddies tomorrow.

Just have the homework to get organized tonite and another week starting tomorrow. So here I find myself speechless again.

Supper was vegetarian chicken, rice and a huge serving of stir fry veggies. Well, must get to my work. Another short week and very long weekend, probably go to the city... haven't decided when yet.

    Hi Lila
It seems you are getting into the right routine. You sure do spend a lot of time preparing for school. I hope that they really appreciate you, but sometime you might find that out.
What is vegetarian chicken? Sounds different and good,
Well this may find you sleeping, you sure need rest.

Wow, that was some meeting! Being new to it all, it was confusing with all the acronyms and I had to look silly and ask for explanation! So much going on but for sure it will give me lots of info on how things work. I took an opportunity to add the fact that I had been laid off last year on second last day, and it was interesting who came and asked me about it.

Anyway, we had an uneventful trip home with no wildlife on the road. We stopped in a little town for a bit, but nothing exciting.

So I have lots of info to pass out to everyone at school. Not much else, just lots of driving today.

And I'm tired.... off to school tomorrow to get prepped for the week... Hope everyone is resting and relaxing and taking advantage of reduced responsibilities on the weekend.

    Lila it sounds like you are becoming quite the activist in your school. The more you know about the situation, the more you can address. Take Care Pat in Maine.

On the Road Again

Saturday, October 02, 2010

Short and sweet day at school.... 3 of my kids gave me a hug before I left. They all wanted to know where I was going and who was taking care of them....

I left school at 12:15 when the kids went out for lunch. Had a safe uneventful trip, we got here at just before 5pm.
we had stopped to gas up at Lac La Biche and had A& W Uncle Burger. Here, we went for a Subway sub and then shopped at the Dollar 'Giant and Walmart and found Shoppers Drug Mart closed at 9:23. BUt I left out the big deal, we went to Lesser Slave Lake and had a really nice long walk on the beach. DH even took the camera and I expected to post a pic, but the camera had no charge and we couldn't use it. He's going to check it and see if we can get it recharged for tomorrow if that's what's wrong.

Been fighting with this wifi to get computer going for a couple hours, and I', frustrated but it is finally working, but I gotta go to bed now. Meeting at 9am
