Do you know how many tissues...

are in a box of Kleenex?

Seeing as how I have gone through almost one whole box this week, you would think that I would know.  I don't.

What I do know is that my head has more snot in it than I ever thought possible (since my last cold), and my nose is red and raw.

I know, I know...Would you like some cheese with your whine??


I really am starting to feel a little better.  Wednesday morning was awful but I felt better this morning, which was good, since today was...


I am happy (and relieved) to report that both I and my students survived the DAY OF PAINT.  To be honest, it tried my patience and at one point I had to stop and take a very deep, very cleansing breath, but we all got through it.

By all, I mean me and the kids.  The insects....not so much.

The heads fell off.

Of the insects, not the kids.  Don't worry.  All 19 students went home with the heads they came to school with today.

Did I say 19?  Silly me, I meant 18.  Speshul Snowflake hasn't been in school for the last day and a half.  She went home early Wednesday because of an "owie".  She came down with the sniffles last night and I was informed today that she will be out until Monday.  Today was Day 12 of the school year and she has already missed 4 days.  The rest of the year should be interesting, no?

I brought my hot glue gun to school today just in case insect eyes fell out.  Some did and I was able to glue them back on.  The heads, though, won't stay on with the hot glue.  I have to figure out a way to keep the heads on or this whole project is going to be a big bust.  I'm thinking either double sided tape or trying to use a bit of clay to affix the head back to the body.

Unless, of course, anyone else has a better idea??  :)

One final note:

It is supposed to be FORTY-EIGHT degrees tomorrow morning.

Me no likey.

  1. SOOO happy that you are feeling better!!!!! Less snot and all! ;oP
    Poooooor litte snowflake! (give me a break)
    Wish that I could have helped on the bugs! Try gorilla glue it fixes everything, but if you do remember that it foams and expands so a little goes a LONG way! :o)
