Post 189

Nothing exciting to say. Nothing grand to report. Just the little things:
  • It's cold here in the Heartland -- we have wind chill. Bah.
  • It's hard getting up an hour earlier. I've been struggling out of bed at 5 a.m. and nodding off while Hubby drives me to work. I'm required to do a turn on my floor first block (planning) because I can't stay awake at my desk. By 4 p.m. I'm ready for the nap which can last anywhere from 2 to 5 hours -- not a nap you say? Probably not. Then the sleepless night ensues because I'm used to only 5 hours of sleep a night.
  • Spring break is only 2 more mornings away -- tomorrow and Friday.
  • No kids on Friday but the teachers are required to attend work shops and submit quarter grades before they can leave to start spring break
  • The first of my school district cuts were announced to day -- 35 administrators are being laid off. Teacher cuts come in two weeks time.
  • I'm wearing my "Miniature Schnauzer Carousers" shirt today. My principal announced she liked it a lot.
  • Today shortened Wednesday schedule is for Blocks 1 & 2 and then Advisory. The kids go home at 12:30 while the staff must stay for meetings. I like the 1 & 2 schedule and hate it when we have Blocks 3 & 4 instead.
  • For one day last week I actually got to drive to school in daylight -- dim but still not "stars out and pitch black" night. I'm rapidly becoming a proponent of getting rid of daylight savings time.
That's today's post. Out of the way. And the next one can be post 190.

The ruling Miniature Schnauzer and her retinue would like to see a picture of the Miniature Schnauzer Carousers shirt please.

It's been cold here too, but nothing like there, I'm sure. We'll be looking at staffing this spring and it WILL be ugly. We'll see if our central admin joins in the "cut back pain" though. I doubt they will and that will make everyone furious. Our spring break is in 2 weeks and I'll be in Africa. *gulp*

Margaret -- HOW exciting for you. Can't wait to read your blog / daughter's blog entries. Were the shots awful? MGW
