Today was better...

Lunch was WAY better today. There was no traffic jam at the bathroom, so my babies were actually about 5 minutes early getting to lunch. I was worried because New Principal was standing in the hallway as we were coming down, and I was sure she would say something about us being early. But, she didn't! Actually, she only asked if things worked better today, and asked how things were going in general. I made sure to thank her again for letting me switch my lunch time. Today was another "no prep" day, which I didn't realize until this morning. We have computers today, which is not really a prep. There is no teacher in the computer room, so we have to stay with our kids. Well, duh, that's NOT a prep period, is it? That's why we're down to 3 preps now. We have art, library, gym and computers as our "preps." I used to have 2 gym periods each week when I was getting 5 preps. Now, not only are we down to 1 gym period, it's on a different day now! It took me 7 weeks to get ALL the parents to finally remember when we had gym, and now I have to tell them the day's been changed. Ugh!

I decided we would be skipping computers today, since it's just way too much work to take the whole class up there, then have to help each and every freakin' baby on their computer. They don't know how to do ANYTHING on the computer yet, and I'm just not up to teaching them right now. I've got bigger fish to fry, ya know! Like...umm...maybe getting them to write their damn names!! But, I digress... Mrs. F. was subbing today at the Hell-Hole, and was subbing in the library. As much as I would like to dedicate an entire post to ranting about the librarian's schedule (and I just may do it later) suffice it to say, she only had classes for 3 periods today. 3 PERIODS!!! That's 3 out of 8 periods for the day!!! Excuse me while I swallow down the rage bubbling up in my throat.....

Ok, back to the point. Mrs. F. did me a huge favor and took my babies for the last period of the day. God bless you, Mrs. F.! Oh, and she made me laugh this morning. Naturally, I made her take ALL the leftover cupcakes home last night after the shower. She kept saying she shouldn't because then she would eat them. Well, duh, that's why I want you to take them! Anyway, she had to go to a breastfeeding class when she left my house, and she told me that between the drive there, and the drive home after, she ate 3 cupcakes. :) Hey, the baby wanted them, shut up! The two she ate at the shower were for Mommy. ;-) Then, she had one for breakfast this morning. tee hee!

I would probably do that with the cupcakes and I haven't been pregnant in over 17 years!! Oh wait, did I say that out loud?
