Day from the dark side. Started a little LOW, by 9:00 a.m. had two students removed due to behaviors (the day started looking like it might improve) HA!!! Of the kids left, ONE (the only one who has never had a behavior problem EVER in our school) told us he will be leaving to go home to his parents on the 21st of December (why not the ones who act up and whine or throw fits or beat themselves until they bleed??? Then the two with bronchitis started coughing and sneezing all over us - not tidy tissue covered sneezes but 3-year-old type with SNOT down to their chin and sprayed all over materials, desks, and US. No time for lunch. . . more bickering and whining and aides on edge . . . toward end of day, got a call to go to the office . . . deal with child protection services about student I mentioned before Thanksgiving . . . (NOT likely to go anywhere but NOT a thrill either) . . . Day ended for students . . . checked email and got a message that I have to do two students' RECORD reviews because somewhere along the line they CHANGED policy and NOW I have to do them instead of administration at the board office doing that and reporting to us . . . looked for a paper I needed to do those reviews but it had been misfiled and it was 6:45 P.M. when I FINALLY found it and could leave the school . . . Got in my car and had a coughing fit that caused me to almost stop breathing and to start to pee myself (once I stopped coughing the leakage stopped too but I was DAMP) . . . got home and because I was so late - I DID call and tell Ed I would be late - but he was wound up and kind of hyper because I normally get home 2 hours earlier so just a PERFECT end to the day from Crazyland.
Not the IDEAL day, but I did survive. Made my calorie, fat, protein, and fiber goals - a little low on carbs but MY body is okay with occasional imbalances. I survived and will be glad when tomorrow is OVER.
Everyone have a great night. Good night
