See, there are two of me…
Tuesday morning I awoke to my 5:15 am wake up call…ouch. The reality of returning to school had settled and I finally wiped my tears from the Monday drag my body back in and teach my brains out day. Tuesday would mean seriously getting back into the routine, but no…the weather gods called for SNOW…a dirty four letter word for lots of folks, but sometimes a wondrous four letter word that rolls off my lips with such delight I can’t help, but feel beside myself. The first sign of pending elation came with the announced two-hour delay. My brain began to think of how our schedule would change and what lessons would be postponed. I savored my coffee when suddenly to what did my wandering eyes just see, but a miniature listing that schools would be closed. (sorry no rhyme)
I sprang from my seat in front of the TV and changed my clothes to a more comfortable yoga pants, slippers and “slothy” but warm top. The day was mine. I won’t bore you with the details of first completing some lessons plans, but should the administration read this they will know that my day was not a total loss and I thought of my students first.
I texted the Hubster and told him to sit down before reading because I didn’t want him to faint when he read that I would be cooking dinner on a school night. Later he stated that he was glad he sat down, had taken all morning medications and was wearing his reading glasses because he couldn’t believe his eyes.
The flexible schedule of Tuesday was as follows:
1) Blog reading
Found the above three blogs and added to my fun blogs page.
2) TV watching
I wanted to watch a few On Demand programs, but was afraid I would be sucked in and then my brain would be sucked out.
Project Snow Day Begins…Part Deux (Part One here)
No photos, because it wasn’t pretty.
5) Cooking and Baking
Chicken Pot Pie
Hot Milk Cake ( hello, milkman’s daughter here)
It’s Wednesday, two-hour delay, pork loin in crock pot (sorry Hubster should have warned you to sit down before reading),…back to reality…indoor recess, frigid temperatures…will be teaching my brains out again, but with a little more pep in my step…although will tread lightly…it’s slick out there.
Have a wonderful day!
