Our field trip to Grant’s Farm was canceled due to tornado warnings in the area. Thirty minutes after it was canceled, the clouds pushed off and it became a nice day. I had to do some Oscar awarding acting to convince those disappointed kids that we would have “fun” staying at school today. We’ve rescheduled for Friday.
Now it’s storming with tornado warnings again this evening. I can’t remember a spring with so many seriously damaging tornadoes. I’m told that on Monday when I was seeing Dr. AA the tornado siren went off at school and the kids had to sit in the hallway for about an hour. The part of a ceiling fell in one classroom. My thoughts are with those in Joplin, Missouri. One in five people are homeless due to a big tornado on Monday and over 120 killed. It’s not that far from where I live and could easily be my town instead.
One of the younger teachers (EH) approached me to ask if having an HSG hurts a lot and advice on TTC which she’s been at for a year. I wish I didn’t know all this stuff but I’m glad to help if it spares anyone even a smidge of the crap I’ve been through. I wouldn’t wish this road on my worst enemy.
So instead of cute animal and kid pictures, today you get to see Jae’s lunch. I’ve never known anyone who was such a mono-eater. This has been her lunch everyday this school year. Everyday. And we’re closing in on 180 days. It usually includes a granola bar and a diet coke too. Only the type of meat changes.
