My young friend, the one who gets teary-eyed mad at me when my husband is at karate instead of me, let me watch this thing for him tonight during class. Usually it's Legos that I get to watch, but today it was this. Because, as he reminded me this afternoon when he asked me if I knew why he was wearing his stormtrooper hoodie - it's May the 4th! Get it!?
I had firm instructions NOT to touch the orange button.
I was tempted.
But I didn't.
And then, that very friend who gets teary-eyed mad at me when I'm not at karate - he left. Without saying good-bye and without this watchyamacallit.
So Mark went barreling out of the dojo door into the rain, with one boot on the wrong foot and the other foot bare, waving this and yelling for my friend - HEY, YOU FORGOT THIS!!
Boy. Is my friend ever going to hear it tomorrow. Leaving like that without even saying good-bye.
On our ride home from karate, the song Marry Me by Train came on the radio.
Mark: This is the first love song I've heard today
Today was one of those days at work where the thought crossed my mind that I could be content staying home and finishing old cross-stitch projects.
But I think I pitched all the unfinished cross-stitch projects during last year's purge. So that's that.
Tomorrow's JV game is canceled.
There are so many injuries right now, they are pulling 8 JV girls up to Varsity to form one playable team.
Wendy is not one of them due to the fact she is still working to keep her rib in place. It popped again today during strength training.
I went to Meijer after karate and meandered about the store getting what we needed, with bread and laundry detergent being the main items.
All bagged up, they couldn't get my card to work and I had no other payment options ----- except for my husband. He was less than thrilled at having to come to Meijer to get my cart out of hock.
I guess the drop dead date on authorizing that new card I got a couple months ago must have finally arrived. I hate authorizing new cards when so many things are on auto-pay now. And the new one has that new fangled chip thing that retailers hate. I've got a big to-do list for tomorrow.
Student: MRS. T! You have a FITBIT?
Me: Yep. [my third one. nothing new]
Student: I am SO jealous. I want one so bad!
Me, dumbfounded: Why?
Student: Because I weigh 82 pounds which is more than I should be for my height.
This breaks my heart. No kid should have to worry about their weight. Especially a very active sports playing boy.
It's Staff Appreciation Week at the Elementary, otherwise known as Throw the Diet out the Window week.
That's all I've got.
