Quick Recap of the last 3 days:

Sunday-We didn't get our plan worked out. We did clean the house but that was about it. We went to Tom & Peggy's, Tim picked up the lawnmower, Peggy & I went to Goodwill & the Dollar Tree. Then I left to go to Office Max to do my Mystery Shop. When I got back we had spaghetti for dinner & then it was time to come home & input my shop report.

Monday-First day of school!

Started out, blah, the new guy took down my expensive fade proof paper & crumpled it up. BUT, I went out to lunch with the music & the art teacher & that redeemed the day. I was able to get all of my stuff moved to my new classroom by 2:00. We had to leave the building at 3:30, though, so I didn't get much else done.

Tuesday-Second day of school!

Started out, OK, I got to work around 7:30 & got straight to work in my classroom. I got a LOT done. We had lunch scheduled for noon & I went up there to check it out. There was a bit of a snafu with my new teammates, but it didn't get bad at that point. I went to McDonald's and got some lunch (the stuff they had provided was yucky) and then came back. More snafu with the teammates & then a staff meeting. Then after the staff meeting, I spend a while waiting my turn to talk to Mrs. White about the snafu. We managed to get it worked out, but not in a very civil manner. After that meeting, I went back to my room & got A LOT more done. Tim showed up around 5 & checked out the computer situation. We left the school around 6 & headed to Office Max. Tim looked for the cables I'd need to work out my computers (and a co-worker's) and I picked up $75 woth of school supplies. Then Tim headed home & I went to Wal-Mart. I bought the fabric I needed to do my bulletin boards this morning. While I was in Wal-Mart, Mrs. White called but I couldn't answer. I called her back on my drive home. She was calling to apologize for the messy snafu. We ended up talking for about 20 minutes. I LIKE Mrs. White, I just wish she were more firm & decisive sometimes. When I got home, I attempted to download & print my shops (I had left the reports at school) but couldn't. So, I quickly changed & then called Melanie. Rob answered & said that, sure, they could print them out for me. So I zoomed to their house, got my reports & 3 more Peek A Blocks, & then raced across town to Jared. I really liked Jared as a jewelry store. The shop went well too. I'd never been there before. The girl working there told me my diamond solitaire was loose though & that worried me. Then I zipped to the mall & went to Helzburg. It's right across the hall in the mall from Kay. I was not impressed. The girl didn't notice that my stone was loose, that it was an ideal cut (which is what I was looking at), and she didn't act like she wanted to sell me anything. After that, I went to Kay's to have my diamond looked at. The clerk there said that, sure enough, it was just loose enough that I wouldn't pass inspection, so she made the arrangements to ship it off for repair. I also asked her about my screwback diamond earrings & how they KILL me when I first put them on or take them off. She said that the posts may be too wide for me & that they could replace them for FREE! I love Kay. So, I came home 3 diamonds lighter than I had left.

When I got home, Tim was playing Creature Creator & my computer was reloaded! I can play SIMS now! Yay! I got to work on the shop reports & Tim got to work making some Mac N' Cheese for supper. I did my reports, checked my e-mail & blogs, ate, and went straight to bed.

Wednesday: 3rd Day of School

Hump Day, we have a staff meeting from 1-3. Tomorrow is our last real chance to get stuff done before meet the parents. I'll be busy & tired & probably work until 7.

What pool is that? She looks so cute!

You've been so busy. When do you want me and the littles to come in? We have a dinner shop tonight and I have to take Sophie to gymnastics tomorrow morning, but otherwise we're free :)
