***Some of you have asked me or written on your blogs of your concern for our friend, "Lala," whose blog inexplicably disappeared last week. (I spelled her name weird in order to avoid this showing up in a search engine or something.) I received an email from her in response to my asking her what's up, and she gave her blessing on this update: The adoption agencies found her blogs and didn't appreciate some of the things she said about them. The adoption seemed in jeopardy but is now back on. Lala she is okay, but done blogging. (Though I can't believe she could stay gone forever!!! :) Please continue to keep her and her family in your prayers.
***Anyone who knows me will back me up when I say that I am a pretty fast walker. What can I say? I hate to waste time. That said, I cannot stand it when kids run in the hall at school; I've been barreled-into at least three times that resulted in bruises, so it's my pet peeve. A few weeks ago, I wrote four referrals in two days for running in the hallway; I figured the news would spread, and today I learned that my tactic worked. I heard one boy tear past my room. The friend behind him stopped near the doorway to our classroom, and I heard him whisper loudly, "Dude! Don't run by Mrs.4444's classroom!" Mission accomplished.
***Kyle sent this text to me last weekend...
"This weekend, I tried sniffing coke, but I got an icecube stuck up my nose! :)" He doesn't take after his dad at all, does he?!
***Speaking of texts, this Fragment from Unknown Mami (a Latina babe) is my favorite so far this week (and I still have tons from last week to read!) She's awesome. Here's an example of why:
My husband sent me a sweet text in Spanish, but he doesn't really speak or write Spanish. Here's our text exchange:
Unknown Papi: Te quedo
Unknown Mami: Thank u! I think u mean "quiero". Quedo sounds like a combo of quiero & pedo, which I guess would mean u want to fart me. (I'm not into that if ur wondering.)
U.M.-Here's the award! You deserve it!
**A parent at our school has taken it upon herself to help us raise money for our musical this spring (Willy Wonka!!) She has so far produced at least 15 pairs of gorgeous mittens (made from old wool sweaters and fleece) that disappeared as fast as she could make them (at $15 per pair!) Aren't we lucky to have such a generous, thoughtful parent?! I think I will try really hard to talk her into having another kid so that we can keep her at the middle school longer.
***Have you ever had the experience of not knowing a door was even there until someone opened it? This happens to me all the time (and I mean it literally, not figuratively.) It's always an amusing surprise.
***Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait to sleep in tomorrow!! Beware to anyone foolish enough to call me before 9am at the earliest! :)
Have a great weekend!!
