Today was the return to school after a nice, relaxing spring break.
I was in a little bit of a funk, but I was trying to "choose my attitude". (I cannot blame it on the fact that I stayed up past my bedtime to watch GCB. That show is hilarious!)
I was just a little annoyed that my car decided to not start yesterday. Which just made me imagine the sound of money flushing down the toilet.
On top of that, I think I'm going to need a new pool pump because it won't start.
And then my electric toothbrush wouldn't start. (Don't worry, I figured out that it still brushed.)
And then I stubbed my toe trying to walk in my classroom in the dark.
First world problems I know...But still, that's not how I wanted to start my Monday after spring break.
I was all ready to move to Australia with Alexander. I felt like a big ol Pout Pout Fish.
And then (does anyone else's darlings tell stories with 'and then'....?) I opened the door to my students and they chased the clouds away.
Here were some comments:
"I was so bored I read, like, 57 books!"
"I was so bored I actually read a book."
"I was so tired of my mom's cooking that I actually missed school lunch."
"You can only play so much DS before it makes your thumbs hurt."
"My lice are gone!"
"I almost forgot what you looked like."
"Hey! There's that cookie I left in my desk!" (9 days later!)
and the best...
"I missed you, Ms. Buckler."
Yeah, that'll take the drearie wearies away.
Also, my darlings who did one of my centers found a mistake today. Some of the labels were missing on the moon headband. So, you can get the fixed one here for free.
And then I added a 'Free Stuff' tab at the top up there ^. Check it out.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
