You know what kind of week.
This is a nice blog.
I don't want to sully it with adjectives.
On Friday, our principal met with us. He said,
"You guys are working really hard. Saturday School is coming up for you, starting February 25th. You don't HAVE to do all of them. Use your judgment; do as many as you need to, depending on the level of your group of kids."
Translation: I have to do all of them.
Then he said,
"And it's a long weekend. I know you have a training tomorrow (Saturday), but after that, take it easy. Don't take home your guided reading binder. Don't take home your laptop. Don't take home anything. Just enjoy your family. Because after this weekend... well..."
I'll let you translate that one.
So we said,
"Ok. So, if we don't take anything home, don't be surprised if, on Tuesday-
we're off Monday-
the classroom looks like a monkey cage because we're not prepared."
Translation: Teachers aren't ever OFF. Ever.
"But really. I'm sure it will be fine. Just take it easy."
Translation: He's not really sure what our job is.
and then we packed up our laptops and guided reading binders and took them home anyway.
So last night, after my training and his extra photo shoot
he's behind the camera, not in front of it
my hunnybun and I were talking, and we decided to have a mini-adventure.
We do this frequently, although less frequently this past year. We just take a little tiny trip.
We have no children, and my mother is capable of giving my diabetic dog a shot. She complains about having to do it. She lives literally, 200 seconds away. Around the corner, down the street. She'll be fine.
So we packed up our stuff and drove forty-five minutes to the next town. All of our little trips start the same way. With a song I like to call "Adventure Day." It's always the same title, but the tune and lyrics are dependent on my mood and what expectations I have for the trip.
yesterday it went something like this:
It is time to get away!
A hotel we will have to pay
so we can have adventure day!
This is shouted at the top of my lungs as we pull out of the driveway. There may have been other verses, but I don't really remember.
My hunny is a saint.
These are our adventures so far:
We stayed in a hotel.
We slept late.
We bought me some medicine for my sinus infection that I just decided to admit to.
We ate lunch at Golden Corral.
Have you ever seen a chocolate fountain at Golden Corral? I hadn't. I think it's not a good idea.
That is, it's not a good idea for me to go to Golden Corrals with chocolate fountains.
I ate lots of things covered in chocolate. Mostly marshmallows. So I basically ate chocolate-covered sugar. Num nums.
I might've tried covering other things in chocolate too, but I think the lady behind the counter wouldn't like that.
Now I'm back to sugarless again.
We came to a Starbucks.
Guess what we did there, on our mini vacation?
He edited pictures from his photo shoot, and I worked on a new product for my store.
We've been here for, like, five hours. Working. On our mini-vacation.
I did this.
TPT store or my Teacher's Notebook Store.
You can also take this freebie because I like you:
Click it to grab it from TPT. It's full of Ginger Snap's cute money clipart.
OH! PS She's having a sale till Monday, so hop over to Teacher's Notebook and buy stuff!
juicy lovey dovey stories
to my linky party which I am SO glad I did because you guys have the most awesome stories ever. If you haven't checked it out, it's well worth a read. Skip an episode of RHOBH and read about some RHOBV.
Real Housewives of BlogVille
They're smarter. And nicer. And won't throw their wine in your face. (I think.)
Maybe later I'll convince the hunnybun to see a movie. Do they still make movies?
What do you do for adventure days?
