Saturday, November 1


A great day to start off the month- well productive at least. Not a great food day- slept well and didn't get up until after 8.30- got things done around the house, did my Yoga dvd and had a late breakfast. After a small nap I ran errands - back home, late lunch and then out to meet a friend for happy hour. What she didn't tell me that a friend who used to live here (now in TX) is here for the weekend!! Boy I was surprised. Keith arrived, we stayed a little longer and then home. We didn't watch the movies, again.... but were in bed before midnight!!


Food
B: coffee, cheese omelette
L: chicken stir fry
S: humus w/pita bread
....no dinner! Oopsie....

Sunday, November 2

Just had a really relaxing day! For some reason (may have been that we were in bed before midnight)-- we got up before 8am-- (and there's no time change here, so that wasn't the reason)- had coffee, and met some friends for breakfast. Home- lazed around and watched a couple of movies. This evening K ordered pizza, even got it delivered. Going to hop into the shower and sit back on the couch..... like I said, relaxing ;-)


Food
B: coffee, scrambled eggs, sausage, b'fast potatoes

Yes, we had a great time hanging out with her on Saturday night.... it's been well over a year since I've seen her and was completely shocked when I turned around and saw her. Apparently my face was priceless!!


She's gone off sailing to Antigua now for 2 weeks, not sure if she's stopping back here on the way home though.

Having Keith here all weekend was nice, but boy is is nice to have the house to myself once again. LoL~ anyway, school was ok- though I did have to send 2 more (repeat cases) home with lice. (And I did an olive oil treatment on myself this evening, just to be safe!!) We had an impromptu meeting after school, luckily it was short.

Ick~ one of those days. Classroom was cRaZy, we even had a shelf topple over in the afternoon (a 5yr old leaned on it.... doubt he'll do it again though!)- we have a tough group this year. A lot of challenges. Keeps us busy. After school we had a meeting, a frustrating one.... about scheduling MORE meetings. WTF??? I was so over it all by 5pm I went and met Keith out for happy hour... and ended up doing shots! Hmmmm.... stressed maybe? Anyway- home with food to go, and slept well.
Here's to today being

Wednesday, November 5

The day started off rocky- not feeling so well after being out the night before and then when I found an egg on a child the Mom had the cheek to say "can't you just let that one slide" (keep in mind I did NOT go through the whole head-- so if I had I may have found more than that one....) I was so peeved at her, plus there were other parents standing right there!! I sent them home!
However.... we had 6 kids out, and the day was lovely. I had a chance to actually sit and concentrate on the lessons I gave. We had our parent ed. night last night- good turn out- after that one of the other teachers and I went out for a dinner and drinks (to K's bar)-- home at about 10pm, long day. Slept well.... and am SO ready to wrap up this week!!
