Today is a teacher training day. Friday ended the trimester and tomorrow starts a new one with new classes and new students. I have to say…there are a couple of kids I won’t miss. I had a couple who required full-time babysitting last trimester at the expense of all the other students in the class. I mean, I seriously could not take my eyes off them for 30 seconds that they weren’t instigating a fight or messing with another student.
I’m hoping to meet Barbara for lunch. Barbara was our school librarian and she and I shared space because my classes meet in the library. She retired October 29th and it hasn’t been quite the same. I didn’t realize how much she was a part of my everyday routine until she was gone and I miss talking to her and sharing the day.
After school, I have to see a new doctor for a second opinion on my butt. (“Yeah, I agree with Dr. G. It’s ugly and saggy.”) How exciting is that??? I fully intend to grill this guy and ask every single question I can think of.
And finally, if everything goes right, I’ll be heading over to Sistah Pam’s for dinner around 5:00. Pam makes a pretty good pie crust and has tackled the job of teaching the rest of the Sistahs how to make a decent pie. (Can she make a cherry pie, Billy Boy, Billy Boy? Can she make a cherry pie, Darling Billy?) None of us are able to make a cherry pie, Billy. Or any other kind of pie unless we have Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts on hand.
And so…Jana, Pam, Elsie, LeeAnn and I will all be making pies for our monthly dinner tonight. Jana is doing Pizza Pie appetizers, I’m doing a chicken pot pie for the main course and the rest are doing dessert pies. Not exactly a healthy dinner but we should all finish the evening with the possibility of catching Billy Boy at some future date.
