I'm down to the last couple of days on the antibiotics and I am feeling better, but I'm just not back to 100% yet. This very long week hasn't helped much. Why do they insist on making us work five days a week? LOL!
On Monday it took me over two hours to get home from school. There was an overturned truck on the causeway that caused them to completely shut it down. We were all forced to exit in Miami and work our way over to the beach some other way. NIGHTMARE!
On Thursday afternoon part of the causeway was closed off again because the President was in town. He was at Gloria Estefan's house and so the exit to Star Island was blocked off for security reasons. That slowed my drive down, but at least I was able to get home.
Monday morning it was raining like you wouldn't believe. That mini umbrella that I always carry in my purse wasn't in my purse. LOL! I can't even begin to explain how soaked I was by the time I got into my classroom. There was no outdoor playground time that day because of the weather.
On Thursday as we were getting ready to go outside the office assistant came over the intercom and asked everyone to stay in the building because there was a pitt bull on campus and they were waiting for animal control. Pitt bulls are illegal in Dade County so it's never good when one shows up. After she made the announcement one of my students got very upset because he had misunderstood the announcement. When she said there was a "pitt bull" on campus he thought she said "spitball". He just couldn't understand why "that thing you blow through a straw" would force us to stay indoors. Once I stopped laughing I explained what she said and what a pitt bull was.
Today, we were outside and some of the kids came running over to tell me that a bird was trying to get them. I go to see what they're talking about and found that there were birds building a nest inside one of the outdoor lights. As the kids were playing and got too close to the light the bird flew down to scare them away. I assured the kids that if they didn't get too close the bird would leave them alone. Some of the kids spent their whole playtime watching the birds and trying to talk to them by calling out "coo-coo, coo-coo" LOL!
Now, I'm going to get some much needed sleep. In the morning I'm supposed to go to the zoo with my friend and her kids. Is it bad that I'm hoping for more rain? LOL!
