So I should be doing lesson plans and yet, here I am, blogging for your pleasure.

I am so selfless like that.


I felt better today.  Better enough to go to school although I must confess that it was rather tempting to call in sick again.  However, a faker I am not, so I bundled up and set out for school.  To say that my wee little munchkins were glad to see me would be an understatement.  I got hugs galore and pleas of "Don't ever leave us again!" in the most dramatic voices imaginable.

It's nice to be loved again....

I could honestly tell my coworkers that I actually MISSED being at work.  A far cry from my feelings last year at this time.

Speshul Snowflake update:  Monday--present.  Tuesday--absent.  Wednesday--showed up, stayed for an hour, went home = absent.  Thursday--managed to stay the WHOLE DAY.  I am sure that, being at school for TWO whole days this week has sufficiently tired her out and she will be absent tomorrow.  I'll keep you posted.  In case you were wondering, that would make NINETEEN DAYS ABSENT since August 22.  School has been in session for 68 days and she has missed 19.  There are only 5 days in a school week.  She has missed almost a MONTH of school.  And yet, mommy and grandmama get mad at me because her grades are low?!?!  Go figure.

I am sensing that the lesson plans aren't going to get done until this weekend.  I wonder how long I can milk the whole "Iwassickfrommycoldallweek" thing?  I'm hoping through tomorrow at least.
