Hi All! I know! I know!! Two blog posts in ONE WEEK!! Shocker!! I am so sad that I kinda stopped blogging last year when I had neck surgery and then ran off and got married! Now that life has settled back into a routine I am sooooo excited to reconnect with all my old bloggy buddies who probably thought I had fallen off the planet! And WOWY!! I've been doing me a little blog hopping lately and there are A TON of new blogs on the block! It's so exciting to see all the new faces that have joined the bloggy world since I've been M.I.A!!

Ok, and further more, ya know that cold air and pollution and snow and winter yuck that I just mentioned? Yah, well that plus that plus that plus that = NO OUTSIDE RECESS!!! Arrrrrghhhhh!
Before you start shrugging me off as the "Super Whiny-Wimp Girl", let me tell you how many days, no, how many consecutive days of inside recess we have had....
Well, seriously, I forgot to mark the first day it happened on my fresh January 2013 calendar like I do all important events and happenings and not so important events and happenings, but I think it has been like 5 DAYS!!!
You all know what one or two inside days are like. Yah, now multiply that by 5, and times that by 26 hyper students, and several students with colds and stomach aches and.....yep, you get the picture....(I ain't so wimpy now, am I??)
Speaking of kids with stomach aches and colds...Monday, I came to school and all six kids from Table 4 were home SICK! Two went home from school sick yesterday. This morning I was really going for a full house with everyone back.
We almost had everyone there today...(come to think of it...I haven't had everyone there in my class yet since we started back on January 3rd....) All the sick kids had come back to school, everyone was happily hanging up their backpacks and turning in their homework folders and then I hear sweet Kate standing below me saying in a faint voice those dreaded words:
......."Teacher, I don't feel so well."
Have I ever mentioned that there's probably a very good reason why I never had children of my own? I can't stand spit, puke, runny noses or blood. I seriously gag and get light headed.
It all happened so fast--
Bless her cotton socks! At least she grabbed the garbage can and aimed inside it...
I, on the other hand, feeling my own gag reflexes kicking in, made a heroic dash across the hall to the custodian's office (just in case he needed to clean anything up) before I witnessed anything.
So, poor dear little sweet Kate went home on her birthday no less! (I know, sad huh? Don't worry, we will really celebrate when she comes back!!)
And we are still 0/5 for ONE day where every student has been in attendance.
In the meantime, I've been hiding out in the faculty room
Hugs and love,
