What the hell!? Once again, there is no prompt listed on the NaBloPoMo page for today. How can you ask people to commit to posting daily, then not follow through on your part? Whatever.
Believe it or not, being at school was NOT the worst part of my day today. I know you're shocked, but it's true. Getting up at 6 sucked big, giant, hairy donkey balls, that's for sure. Starting the day with a staff meeting wasn't that great, either. There were a few things that happened that I was less than happy about, but I'm trying to not bitch so much about school.
I didn't think I would be so happy to see my babies, but I really was. I don't know who was smiling more, me or them. I got more bear hugs than I can count today. I even got a present, wrapped in pretty Christmas paper, complete with a handwritten love note. So sweet!
I ended up staying WAY later than usual today because Stud doesn't go back to school for a few more days, so I didn't have to rush out to pick him up. I didn't, however, intend to stay as late as I did (which is NOT a good thing to do when you work in the heart of the ghetto! I do NOT like leaving there when it's dark outside! Yikes!). I didn't get home until about 5, and only ran in the house long enough to grab my toothbrush (I'll explain in a sec) and my son.
I promised Stud yesterday that I would take him to Borders today so he could buy a book he wanted. But, first, we had to go to the bank to cash some Christmas checks, then we had to get gas. We decided on Chipotle for dinner, since it's next to the Borders, but by the time we got there, it was SO crowded, we knew we wouldn't have time to eat AND go to the bookstore before my 7:15 appointment at the dentist (hence the toothbrush!). So, we went to the store first, shopped for a bit, then grabbed dinner on the way to the dentist. (So much for my 'resolution' to cut out the junk food, huh?) Sadly, it wasn't the Chipotle that I had my mouth all ready for, which makes me a little sad. I LOVE me some Chipotle!! And we haven't had it in a very long time. :-(
The dentist visit was pretty cut and dry. We were just there last Tuesday for our bi-annual cleaning, and the hygienist found a cavity on my x-ray. Stud has been laughing about it for 6 days now. I have to hound him daily to make sure he brushes his teeth and to cut back on sugary snacks and drinks, so he thinks it's ironic that I'M the one with the cavity. Quite frankly, it pisses me off, but what are ya gonna do?
On the way home from the dentist we stopped at my parents' for a quick visit, which found us getting home after 9. And, now, it's bedtime. So, with that, I'll just say...good night! Oh, and thanks to those of you who pacified my whining from the other day and clicked 'follow' this weekend. What do you mean you haven't done it yet? Do it right now, please!! I know you don't want to hear me whine anymore, right? ;-)
