I have been so busy this week that I only just ten minutes ago realized that it's Thursday night; that is the BEST feeling in the world! Welcome to FRIDAY FRAGMENTS!!!! Here's my randomness tonight:
I'm not getting a lot done at home at night, but I am fortunately keeping up at school during the day without a problem, in spite of my rotator cuff recovery still in process. There was one exception, when a muscle spasm in my upper back locked me up for a couple of hours. I feel very blessed to have a nurturing coworker who kindly worked the knot out for me and saved my day.
***This year, I have a wonderful group of students on my spec ed caseload; it's remarkable. Today, for example, the last five students to leave my room at the end of the day thanked me and said "Goodbye, Mrs.4444!" before I could even reply. Seriously; that's remarkable, and I love it.
***Oddly enough, I've had time to post more than usual this week. Heard in the Classroom includes a glimpse into the middle school this week. Earlier today, I shared an adorable letter that a sixth grade boy wrote to his future self. I even had a chance to participate in the Wednesday Hodgepodge and to build The KISS Principle DIY Cat Tent, a cute little hideout for this little stinker.
Or should I say big stinker (Yes, he still has very bad gas, though it is improving, I think.)
This cat's gas is so bad that Mr.4444 is tempted to take him to deer camp with him,
just to impress the guys. I am now feeding him a pro-biotic, in addition to grain-free cat food.
I think we'll know for sure within a week if it's really working.
Yesterday I received this random text from my 22-year-old son.
My sister Mary texted yesterday, too, to see if she could come over and do some cleaning for me,
knowing I'm still one-arming things around here.
Because I can put my clothes on and take my clothes off but cannot fold anything,
my closet looked worse than a library after a catastrophic earthquake.
Mary knows that an organized closet is important to a woman's sanity,
and now, because of her, I am closer to sanity than I was before :)
She also made an amazing Caesar Salad for dinner AND vacuumed my living room!
I am so lucky.
