Three Day Weekend! No Sunday Night Blues! School’s out in TWO AND A HALF DAYS!
It doesn’t matter that I spent most of yesterday obsessing over the music to add to my slideshow. I can literally check myself into the looney bin because I drive myself crazy over this stuff. If you’re looking for a good list of music to sift through, Cara at the First Grade Parade (I’m saying that casually, but I know you know who Cara is) just posted some good ones. I tend to have happy songs throughout most of my slideshow and then I zap the parents in the end with a tear jerker. They never know what hit them and then they’re asking me for tissue. BAM!
Anywho, today we are off to our old neighbor’s house. They used to live right exactly next door, but then they moved a mile away. It killed me. But I’m over it now because their backyard is gigantic and when we go over there, it is as if we are on vacation at a luxury hotel. I’m not kidding. I’ll ask permission to take some pics today and show you!!
But going over there means wearing a swimsuit.
I spent the other part of yesterday on the hunt for a new swimsuit.
I told the hubby that I wished I could say, “I’m going to look for a new swimsuit or three today!” all sing songy and happy and elated and all that crap. Instead, I said, “I’ve got to try to find a swimsuit that hides my whole body,” all grumpity and disgusted and frustrated.
And yes, I get that this blog is called A Teeny Tiny Teacher. And I am small. I know. I’m petite and little. I am the size of a fifth grader. Some days, I am the size of a third grader because it seems as if kids are coming out bigger or something these days.
However, I am an OLD Teeny Tiny Teacher. And I have jiggles and wiggles.
For example, after I jump up and down, or hop, or jog from here to the wine fridge, or do any kind of activity that does not require standing still, my jiggles and wiggles keep on moving. My body stops, but other things, mainly my lower half, continue to move for moments long afterward.
This phenomenon has also started with my arms. I wave or call someone over and what do you know? My upside-down bicep feels the need to wave, as well.
I ended up finding a suit at Old Navy. It will work. But it does not cover my whole body. I had the darndest time finding a swimsuit made out of a hoodie and pajama pants.
However, there is a silver lining to all of this.
It is cloudy. And the high today is only 73. So rather than wearing my suit over there, I shall be wearing jeans and a hoodie. My swimsuit will be in a bag. And I will just be too cold to put it on. I am teeny tiny, you know.
