I spent Sunday getting intimately acquainted with my toilet bowl.
The stomach virus hit in late morning and by 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning I knew I would never make it to school. I logged on to the sub finder, entered my absence, and spent 30 agonizing minutes sketching out a sub plan. Back to bed. At 6:30 a.m. I checked the sub-finder, the absence had been covered, and called my VP. I let her know that my husband would leave my lesson plans at the front desk with several of my teacher edition books I had taken home.
I spent the day in bed. Despite feeling horrible, I got to watch a gorgeous snow storm blanket my back yard.
I watched as my corgis cavorted and tumbled in the snow.
Today I go back to work, dragging heiny like nobody's business, and despite the best laid plans, things were not as I expected. My VP wrote some good lessons plans because no one could find the plans I had my husband drive out of his way to drop off at my school. Oddly, those plans were at the front desk when I came in this morning. The sub who picked up the duty, called in before school started and they had to scramble to fill the gap. Then I get a new kid. Argh!!!
But, this is the good thing. I got a new kid! He is sweet and quiet right now.
One of my most credible boys, quietly said to me after lunch, "He's cool." So I think new boy will do just fine.
