Sneezy Fraggy

Friday. Finally. It's been a LONG week. LOOOOONG. 

I think it's because Next week is short- only two teaching days--and then, Thanksgiving. Right now, I'm thankful for Thanksgiving break. Because I won't have to play hooky. Sometimes, teachers just need a break.

On Wednesday, the kindergartners who came into the lab for special area, smelled like poop. 

Yesterday, the first graders smelled like throw up. And one of them sneezed. All over her keyboard. All. OVER. It. Stuff came out. More stuff than you would think could be inside a first grader. Gross. And, yes. I admit. I made her clean it up. Then I went over it with Clorox wipes. About ten of them. 

Today, the 5th graders acted like wild banshees at a frat party. 

 Our 4th and 5th grade students gave what I heard was a marvelous production of Oliver Twist yesterday. I wanted to watch the afternoon show and was all set to do so. Until the principal asked me to sit with a student who was in trouble and not allowed to go to said production. So, instead of being entertained by elementary talent (no sarcasm here, they really are quite talented), I sat with an angry, pouty 5th grader. 

Do I need a break? Do you need to ask? 

I LOVE you, weekend! Have a great one, y'all!

  10. Where does all that snot come from, Seriously?
    The funny thing is I work with the elderly and some of them smell like poop, urine and throw up. They never wash their hands and they leave used tissues all over the place.
    I hope you enjoy your break as much as I am going to enjoy mine:)

  11. Terri- Thank you! I'm looking forward to it!

    Doreen- I don't know but, really, it was more than that kid could possibly have had inside her. LOL And here's to our break! :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
