Work aka School

I went to school on Friday and worked for about four hours. I got my computer and copier passwords restored and looked up some information for my going back to work on Friday. Right this moment it's freaking me out so I imagine that on Thursday evening I'm going to be needing every bit of Xanax I can get my hands on.

I saw the kids for a few minutes as it was a half day for conferences (I'm sooooooo sad I missed P-T conferences. NOT!) Then I went to work in between my sub's two conferences for the afternoon. I organized some papers, threw some stuff out, cleaned a teensy bit, and sent out more papers for copies. I also started writing up my Friday lesson plans. My FRIDAY plans. Oh my gosh, those 5 months went quickly. If you're a praying sort, please pray for me. I know it will be FINE when I get there and drop the Iron Curtain but it seems so nerve-wracking rightatthismoment.


It's been hotter than normal here which is something my body no longer really enjoys. Yesterday, I slept on and off through 6 p.m. and avoided most of the heat. It was supposed to be in the 80s and my MS just last year started to turn on me when it got warmer. Then again I was awake at 3 a.m. and went grocery shopping. Yes, that was 3 in the morning. There were three teenagery types in the store plus me and no waiting in line. Yippee.

Today was only about 60 degrees according to my car. Tolerable. Tomorrow is supposed to be mid-80s. Are you kidding me? This is the end of April and it's central NY where it just snowed two weeks ago. Two weeks ago.

Social gathering aka Food Party

Today I attended a Tastefully Simple (aka Sinful because their stuff is so yummy) party. It's basically a chance for a gaggle of women to get together and eat their brains out as they taste test 22 different items. (Yes, that was twenty-two items! Yummo) My favorite was the almond cake with blackberry preserves mixed in. That was heaven in a bite.

My least fave was the blue cheese dip. I just can't get into blue cheese. Never have and most likely never will. I also wasn't a big fan of their taco type items. Sorry BJM, I know you like that stuff.

Drum roll............ I also partook of a wine slushie at the fiesta. This was the first bit of alcohol in a long time. It was pretty good even though I am not much of a wine drinker (or any other kind of drinker either).

I had a fun time with BJM and some of her family and friends. I pretty much knew everyone and I ordered some things that will require either mixing and/or baking. Bet you thought I couldn't do that, did you? I can, I just don't.

Other stuff

I do have Tysabri #8 coming up on Tuesday so I can sneak that in right before I have to go back to work. That's one less day I'll have to take off without pay for now so I'm delighted. I hope I will only have to take one day off in May to get it done and June should find us out of school before that next one is due.

I have no idea what else to say so this is it.

I am not looking forward to the weather tomorrow. They are predicting 92! I hope I don't pass out. I am realizing that I really can't handle much over 75.

Tastefully Simple has a delicious mix to make a yummy vanilla milkshake. A bit pricey but so worth it. The wine slushy sounds good. Wine is about all I drink.

I can't imagine how you feel about going back to school. I have to go back in Sept. and already am getting anxious. Good luck to you!

Teaching is like riding a bicycle, once you start you won't forget how. Ok, it's a lot harder but I know you'll do great. I'll be thinking about you.

Today it reached 90. Tomorrow is supposed to get up to 93!! Yikes, not my idea of April.

You'll do great at school. The kids will be so excited to have you back.
