Four and a half more days. I’m not keeping track. Just keeping you informed.
So . . . two things. Maybe three.
Number One: Nothing is going on with my table. NOTHING. It’s still just sitting there. I haven’t tried any of the solutions offered because that would require going to the store.
I have some Clorox wipes here, and some at school, but that’s about it in the way of my cleaning supplies.
And don’t drop by unexpectedly, either.
I plan on trying all of those solutions, solvents, suggestions next week. When things are not as busy. I also plan on showing it to our custodian if I can’t get it out. As for now, I cover it up with piles of paperwork so he’s none the wiser.
Number Two: I wanted to do the last giveaway for Learning Resources this week. It’s big. It’s a DOCUMENT CAMERA.
At least it’s big to me. I mean, I just got my ladybug a couple of months ago and it’s changed my life. And now I have ANOTHER one???? Except this one is turbo charged???? Are you kidding me? Am I dreaming and I work at a school that is from the future now?
The problem is that as soon as I hooked it up, my computer wanted Adminstrative Approval. It’s always asking for Administrative Approval. You’d think I was trying to look at blogs during the day or something.
I don’t have Administrative Approval. I’m not even sure my administrator does. It’s all district this and that, and don’t touch, and leave it alone, and just be bare bones, and that’s all. In other words, I can use Word. On a good day, I can use the internet.
I’m working on getting some approval from somebody somewhere. And if that doesn’t work, I’m not above hiring a hacker. Any recommendations?
Number Three – On my way back from dismissal, I was sucker punched in the gut.
I was walking up the big, wide, more-than-enough-room walkway, minding my own business, and this upper grade girl came up alongside me (on my right side) and she took her entire left arm and reared back and let it fly. Into my stomach. HARD.
And since I wasn’t prepared, I wasn’t able to flex my rock-hard-six-pack abs, which then would have caused her arm to break in half, so I guess in the long run, it’s good I was caught off guard. (I have no idea if that sentence is gramatically correct or not, and I don’t care.)
I doubled over a little, but I won’t exaggerate this time. I did not get the wind knocked out of me. But, people, it hurt. And it wasn’t an accident. Not like that time I hit a friend of mine because I was talking with my hands. Or that other time I hit another friend because I was talking with my hands. This was ON PURPOSE. And she was bigger than me. Don’t laugh. She was. It’s a fact.
I said, “Hey!” really loud.
And then she turned around.
And it was a super sweet student with special needs. She is a doll. She is in third grade now and all of her teachers love her. I’m not sure if she was giving me a love tap or what. I honestly don’t know.
So I said, “Hey!” a little bit softer.
“What?” she said.
“You hit me,” I told her.
Wait. What? So? SO? SOOOOOOOO??????????????
I said, “Did you just say ‘so’?”
“You’re supposed to say ‘I’m sorry’!!” I cried.
And she stalked off.
But she wasn’t sorry. I know these things.
I’m adding this to my list of injuries in case you’re taking notes.
