Scary arrival at the school
Friday, September 24, 2010
I decided to pick my boys up from school today since it was pouring rain. I was turning onto the road that leads to the school and a fire truck pulled in ahead of me and then two more behind me and then an ambulance. By this point I was freaking out. The only place on the road is the school so I knew that was where they were going. I pull into the parking lot and there is poor Mr Brown standing in the pouring rain with no jacket or umbrella or anything signalling where the trucks should go. There were no kids outside so I breathed a sigh of relief. Another mother arrived at the same time as me and was just as worried. Its not something you like to see. Anyway it turns out a little girl was having heart problems which she had had before. It sounds like she will be okay. Mr Brown was running around like a chicken with his head cut off. He was back and forth from the office to the sick room to the ambulance. He was trying to keep all the kids in their rooms until the ambulance left, but all the buses were there to pick them up. I felt bad for him.
So I was planning on going to talk to him, but obviously that couldn't happen today. I wasn't going to have a big confrontation or anything or even clear the air I was just going to try to be friendly so we could get back on the right track. I was just going to tell him I appreciated the lecture last night and leave it at that. I don't think its necessary though. We saw each other in the hall and spoke briefly and it felt like we were fine. I know that sounds weird. I think he saw that I wasn't going to tell him off last night so they must mean I am looking forward not back. I am feeling positive about the whole thing and I think it is going to be a good school year for all of us. Normally I wouldn't care if we got along or not, but since we have to deal with each other quite a bit it does bother me.
I'm still not feeling the best today. I am sort of afraid to eat anything. I will take the pain killers when Gord gets home. The DR said to make sure I wasn't alone the first time I took them just in case I have a reaction. I'm not sure what the weekend holds for us, but I am hoping to get some exercise. I haven't done anything in a week. I am feeling fat and bloated again. Have a nice weekend everyone.
