Hooray! It’s Friday! Pizza and wine and a movie with the hubby! Yes, this is what amounts to an exciting Friday evening for me. And I like it. What’s that? Don’t I want to go OUT on a Friday night? Well, I would if you could tell me which restaurant does not care if I wear my pajamas and eyeglasses that magnify everything on the plate so much that I might just be able to call the Health Board to report this, that, and the other. If you know of such a place, please let me know.
But what I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to know is what’s up with this FALL BREAK? And/or this 3 DAY WEEKEND? How does one go about getting one of those? I have neither. I have a regular old two day weekend that is going to fly by while I work on my report cards and parent conference notes. Just two days. And then I will return to school on Monday to continue assessing and pretending that my other kids are doing everything that they should be doing while I work one on one with a kiddo. And I will return to the stupid stupid stupid portion of the test that requires my little friends to come up with TWO rhyming words out of thin HAIR. And it’s MY HAIR because I am pulling it out by the fistful, especially when one of my smart cookies says CAT and CAT in response to “can you give me two words that rhyme with dog?” Seriously. Yep. And you know I want to scream but instead, I smile and nod and move onto the next one. Which is not any better. It’s “nose”. Did you know EYE and EYE are two rhyming words for nose???????????????????
So who ARE you people and where do you live and why do you get a Fall Break???? Or what is your three day weekend for???????? I love my job, I do, I really do, but I would LOVE a little break. Just a little one. I’d take this three day weekend some of you are talking about. Who do I need to call? Is there a petition that I need to sign? Should I just take it off in solidarity with you? I would totally be willing to do that. Just say the word.
In the meantime, I’ll just be enjoying a little of this . . . and be happy to be home and ignoring my nerd cart until tomorrow. 🙂
