...and I am out running errands at midnight. Did you think you saw me at Walmart last night? Oh, as a matter of fact, yes you did. I was the one walking aimlessly through the way-too-brightly-lit aisles hoping that the futon in aisle 45a was available for sleep deprived customers. If my husband wasn't thoroughly zonked out on the couch when I left, he probably would have protested me leaving since it was after 11pm when I decided to make this necessary journey. Nevertheless, I had to go and pick up two staples that are key for making my first day of school a success: a mailbox and a 6-pack of liter Diet Cokes. God bless the Coca Cola corporation, amen. Without my caffeine fix tomorrow morning, it is highly unlikely I will be able to tolerate the 26 darling children who are about to run my life for the next 185 school days.
Oh, and the mailbox? That was purchased to provide intrigue and interest in coming back to kindergarten for the remainder of the year. How enticing is it to get to be the mailperson as your weekly job?! Heck yes! Aren't I the coolest kindergarten teacher ever?
So, I did in fact make it home safely from my midnight excursion and am headed to bed as soon as I print my lesson plan for tomorrow. B seriously probably doesn't even know I went despite the fact that I woke him up before I left. Impressive, isn't it, that he can sleep with such ease on the eve of my first day of kindergarten?! Guess it's not near as exciting for him...
I digress (such a great saying).
Nighty night, sleep tight, and don't let the bedbugs bite!
