Too Much Going On

I had a lovely day with M2 & S on Tuesday. We hung out at home, went out for lunch, did some thrift store shopping, and then came home and sat on the deck and enjoyed the beautiful weather. I scored a number of things that I'll have to photograph soon, but more importantly, I got to spend some time with my girl, even if I'm sadder after she leaves than I was before she came, if that makes sense.

Chelsea had a lovely post about seasons and cycles that resonated strongly with me as this is the time of year I end up feeling cranky and stressed, and today/yesterday/tomorrow is no exception.

We have a number of students on out-of-school suspension (OSS) today due to a food fight in the cafeteria yesterday. Also, a couple of girls went home on OSS yesterday due to treating a substitute teacher disrespectfully and then giving me loads of attitude about it. Should be kind of quiet on our team today as a result. I'm actually going on an AVID field trip to a local university today, so that should be fun, if a little hot. This will wrap up the week of crazy overscheduled school events. Only next week left before summer, and it goes without saying that I can't wait!

I'm hoping to make it to our local WWKIP Day this weekend. There's one in Williamsburg on Saturday and one in Norfolk on Sunday, so maybe it'll work out. Hope your weekend is a good one!


  1. Oh dear, I suppose the kids have the same pent up energy when looking towards the summer break.

    Is it WWKIP already? There is an event today at my local yarn shop--a knit in that lasts from 9 am til 4 pm. It appears that if I'm going, I'm late. They have a 6 pm to 10 pm version, too. Maybe, if I'm not too busy working, I'll do that one.

    Have a great day, Rose.

  2. TGIF, Rose. Not long to go now.
    Enjoy your WWKIP event. Should be fun.
