...ahem... It's been a little silent over in my part of the blog world this week. My husband had both knees replaced a week ago Thursday - and he's done great! I just didn't realize - didn't have any idea - how tired I would be! And he is not at all a demanding person. In fact, he's trying to do an awful lot by himself.
So I had scheduled to be gone through Monday but when we got home Monday afternoon, that just didn't seem realistic. So I emailed the sub gal, and she got my sub to stay another day.
Sometimes we really have kids who make you pay for that kind of thing, don't we? I had to use my growly bear voice a couple times last week. Blah.
It's always funny to me, when I look at the sub plans I've left, to see what got done, what didn't get done, and what didn't get understood. I always think I can't make things any clearer - or my sub plans will end up being 100 pages long. I can't imagine that's really what anybody wants.
However, THE sweetest thing. When I got back Wednesday, I had us do a mini morning circle - morning meeting, whatever you want to call it. (We don't have time for these since after the first few weeks of school because we do interventions right away.) I told them I had been gone for four days, tell me something exciting that has happened. We got almost all the way around the circle, and one boy said, I'm excited Mrs. S. is back. Thank you, thank you from my warm, fuzzy heart.
Ok, more later - this exhausted lady might just take a nap! Which just never happens since I was about 5 years old and my momma would try to convince me I needed one - haha.
