I forgot to wish DH happy birthday this morning - now, he tries to avoid celebrating, and I had agreed I wouldn't take him out to dinner or anything - but I'd like to at least wish him happy b'day.
So I had my class prepped, and when I called DH I held out the phone and gave the signal - and the class all yelled "Happy Birthday" - DH laughed, we hung up, class went back to work.
But I let the class go early - my AC is leaking and I've run out of towels and the mop just can't pick up any more water - and I started slipping in the back of the room as I was trying to clean up. We've notified the assistant principal, but I haven't seen a custodian to help mop, and the friend I lent the towels to isn't in school this week.
Eh - it's just before the break (next Thursday is our last day) and no one really cares. Or so it seems. The class left for lunch 18 minutes early, after painting the backs of the mural panels.
Of course, then I spent half an hour washing paintbrushes, since middle schoolers don't clean very well.
