Re: Basically it's Wednesday

My ears are really painful. I hope it passes. I dont want to deal with this. I dont have the time or energy.

I have pandora streaming for my students while they are working today. Makes them so quiet when music is playing.

Re: Basically it's Wednesday

Hola mamacitas. I slept pretty well last night, but woke up ah hour earlier than normal and could not go back to sleep. So Ginger was mad at me for not being in bed to snuggle with when she got up. She had to settle for snuggles after everyone was ready and there was time to spare before going out to the bus.

I'm glad MH's apology went well Jen. When I had Ginger write the apology letter the first time to her art teacher for throwing a fit in class, she first wrote "I'm sorry I was whiny in class. Can you please forgive me?" Um, no. Try again. Having her write out what she did wrong (not following instructions, not being respectful, AND throwing a fit), apologizing without expecting forgiveness, and a pledge to try harder in the future, it seemed to sink in a little better. And FWIW in my experience when kids do a bad behavior they have never done before, it is 90% of the time something they learned from a kid at school (and 10% something they saw on TV or in a book). Once you lay down the law they usually don't do it again.

I am staring at four loads of laundry needing to be put away. And two more in the w/d. Sigh. I don't wanna!

DH just sent me this link.

Um, what? Why would I go to that much trouble, and how the heck did he even see this?

I sent him this response:

"Slow day at work? You can make this for supper tonight while you are watching the kids."

(I have a seminar I'm going to)

I am so sleepy all of the sudden.

I have stacked all the clean clothes, ready for hangers. Ian and I went to the little old people Kroger (as opposed to the big rich people Kroger, lol) and I think for once I figured out how to shop there affordably. I have never been able to sync up their sales with our needs before. Today I bought 5 boxes of waffles for 90c, so I dont have to make any (rainbow or otherwise). The only thing I cant find there is the precooked bacon. IDK where the hide it. I think I just need to buy produce and yogurt tubes there weekly, plus whatever sale items, and get the rest at meijer.

Re: Basically it's Wednesday

French toast and breakfast sausages cooked and in the tortilla warmer. So dinner is taken care of. Ginger decided to go ahead and have her dinner at 4:15. Ian and Rosie may eat theirs in front of the TV later since they don't do syrup.

It is gorgeous outside. But I am sniffling like crazy. Stoopid allergies.
