What a Day!

So this is how my morning started.

No alarm.

Do I really need to say more?  Not really.
will....'cause it's that CrAzY!

So, my husband wakes me up at 7:00.  I normally LEAVE THE HOUSE at 7:00!


Jump up in a tizzy.  I had not set my alarm.  I got a full 10 hours of sleep, though.

I run to my phone to call the school to get someone to cover my room for at least 10 minutes. Not sure of what I'll wear.  My go-to clothes are dirty.  Which means ironing.  What?????

Run back to my bathroom to start throwing on makeup.

Wait?  What day is it?

The 15th?

Oh yeah, I have a sub for the morning 'cause I've got an appoint-ment.  That was sarcasm.

So, I call the school back.  It goes something like this:

Me-Hi there, it's me again.  Guess what?  I have a sub today for the morning.

Other line-silence.....then LAUGHTER.

Me-Welcome to my world.  See you at 11:00.

Other line- OK.

So, I go and leisurely get ready.

Go to appoint-ment.  Then head home for about an hour of blogging/school work/laundry.

So here I am.

Now, if you've stuck around this long.  Let me show you what we got to do the other day:

Employees of the local Kimberly Clark plant came and taught my class a lesson on polymers.  It was great.  Had I been resourceful, I would have read the Dr. Seuss book before-hand.  Oh well.

I also wanted to tell all you upper elementary teachers about a great link up on Lorraine's blog: Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies.  It's a linky party to connect all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers.  Check it out.  I know I'll be "following" a lot of great blogs later tonight when I get home.  

OK, off to school now that it is close to 11:00.  

I think I will skip going into the office today.
