First, I was running late to get my daughter to preschool. We have kept her in 2 half days for the summer since she loves school so much. Last year we took her out and she was miserable. I kept her as busy as I could, but it was a lot of work keeping her occupied when all she really wanted to do was be at school with her teacher. So, she is there 2 days, of which we were late to Day 1. Oh well.
After getting her to school, I went to breakfast with my friend and our principal. I have never been asked out to eat with my principal before. We talked a bit about next year and what needs to happen more to make it a better year. For one, I believe the Ice Queen needs to goo somewhere else, but that's neither here nor there. It would be so much more peaceful if she were gone. I have my work cut out for me with being grade level lead, but it will be worth it in the end!
I went to school today to work in my new classroom. I wanted to clean the cabinets in and out since they were very dirty. It was disgusting how dirty things were. I needed to come home and shower, I felt so gross. But, the cabinets are cleaned, ready for my things. I also labeled everything I want OUT of the room and am hoping to get all my stuff IN my room tomorrow. Yes, I still have over 2 months til school starts, but I hadn't planned on moving, much less being given a weeks notice at that. I'd rather move in, put things away and worry about the prettying up part later. I don't like being in limbo, nor do I want to do it a week before school starts.
After that, I picked up my daughter, headed to Sam's Club and then Goodwill. No good buys at either store, tho there are some things you can't go without at Sam's - milk, bread, ground turkey. I then came home, kept the TV OFF for my daughter and I sat and read. I have since gone outside, worked on some of my rose bushes up front, got attacked by a crazy crow along with my dog (seriously...are they good for anything or can I shoot them?) and then had a sworm of bees fly by. Which is why I am in the house, on the computer. It's safer that way!
Now I will be off to fix dinner, do some laundry and then sit down again for some reading. My book choice right now is
I started it this morning when I woke up at 6 and couldn't go back to sleep. It's an OK book. A quick read...I may be able to finish it tonight if I stay off the computer and away from the TV and just read. But, hubby said he isn't feeling well, so I may be playing nurse maid. I hope he isn't sick...he has a busy week and needs all his energy. I'll make him go to bed and I will stay up and read in the quiet! I did buy the new Danielle Steel today...a treat to myself. I have a couple other books I want to read first before I jump into hers. We'll see.
