It is safe to say the last month of school is kicking my butt. I've become quite the pathetic blogger...and nearly as absent in real life. No joke, even with a full night sleep I came home exhausted and ready to take a nap today. But then again that is what you get when classroom behavior worsens with the anticipation of summer break.
7 days of kids left!
1 teacher records day!
And then sadly....one full day off before I delve into a two day summer school training. I don't technically get off this year until July 2. Boo. But with a hubby in graduate school it is well worth saving any extra penny we can, there is a chance he could get an unpaid externship and that would be no fun at all.
Funny story though before I run off to workout and attempt to make my Fitbit step goal.
I was cutting up a watermelon and munching on a piece over the sink yesterday when Maddie starting barking at me. This dog never barks, I am not so sure she knows how. I realized she was wanting my watermelon, so I took the rind with a bit a pink left on it for her outside. She was in heaven! So much so that when I came back inside to get the chicken to grill I heard growling outside, and not the usual play growl but a very stern serious growl. As I opened the door Maddie was holding the watermelon rind in her mouth like a big smile and had all the hair on her body standing on end. She immediately tried to run inside with her leaky rind and I shoved her back out. Of course I gave Ellie her own, but who on earth as ever seen a dog want watermelon! When I finally got out the door with the chicken Maddie was scraping the meat off with her teeth and Ellie was in heaven with a beard full of watermelon juice. Here is evidence of my two clowns eating their fruit.
After Maddie finished her rind off she wanted another one, so I gave it to her...but Ellie
Tomorrow we plan to go to a concert, one of my favorite bands Meriwether is having a release party for their newest album. Yay, we haven't been to a concert together in well over a year. I am starting to feel like some fuddy dud couple. We sold our motorcycle and we don't go to concerts. To top it off I don't even have my sports car anymore. We both drive dull adult cars, might as well pay some bills and be in bed by 7.
I will definitely need the cars paid off and another motorcycle bought...as well as a few more concerts attended before venturing into children. You can attach a baby carrier to a sissy bar, can't you?
Well now I seriously have to go workout, Teacher Appreciation week is turning into "Help Your Teacher Gain Another 5" week. I had donuts yesterday and 2 slices of cheesecake today. My rational is that it is self medicating since I don't have a drug problem.
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to all my teacher friends!
