Thursday Morning Bullets

  • Mr. Dog finally had a normal bowel movement last night. Yay! I never thought I'd be so happy about poop.
  • Placement #2 went much better than #1. Not only were they expecting me, but they were very welcoming as well. I'm excited about the selection of classes I'll have the opportunity to observe.
  • Since I know you're all dying for an update on the construction project: Contractor has installed and painted all trim and hung the two new doors (closet and basement). He has closed in the backs of both sets of stairs and put in the new window (which actually locks- good for one's peace of mind). The shower walls are up and the vanity is in place. I think that about covers it.
  • This heat needs to Go. Away. It's impacting my much-needed sleep. Plus, it's almost October. Enough already.
  • I'm expecting to get sick at any moment. We've been warned that since our bodies are not used to the normal onslaught of germs in the school system that the new student teachers/observers often come down with something when they first start. Yippee.
  • My dinner last night consisted of four cookies and a small granola bar. That should help keep me healthy, right?
  • I think I'll go make some herbal tea.

I’ve heard that new teachers always seem to get sick when they start visiting the classrooms. Is there any rules about wearing a HAZMAT suit to work?

The CDC recommends the cookie-and-granola-bar diet to ward off flu.

Take care of yourself. All my professorial pals are sick, thanks to the students coming back to campus.

Glad the second observation went better and that the construction is going well and HOPE YOU odn't get sick.

So glad to hear that Mr. Dog is better! My first night in the motel (Tuesday) I had SodaBoy come to your blog looking for an update, but there was no news then. I guess in this case no news was good news.
