Longest Week Ever...

I try to keep my blog on the positive side! 
Ever since I started writing, I really tried to leave the negative at school and away from my blog, but seriously, ever have ONE...OF...THOSE...WEEKS?
That would be me, it is Say No To Drugs Week, and we have been allowed to wear jeans all week! Oh, man do I ♥love wearing jeans, it makes life so easy! Well yesterday was Wear a White Shirt Day and my friends and I were quoting Penny from Big Bang ~ "I never entered a wet t-shirt contest, I only spill when I'm drunk." We can't help it, we LOVE that show...OK, most of us love that show and the rest of our friends tolerate our memorization of it! :) Well sure enough right at 8:30 in a comedy of errors, I spill an entire cup of cold, old coffee down the front of me....I do one of those strange bending-over-dances so I wouldn't drip on my jeans, and I start walking down the ramp of my friend's portable. Another friend sees me and yells, "Are you OK?" Well I didn't think, I yell, COFFEE ALL OVER ME! She's ready to call 911 because I left out the all important word, COLD coffee! We use the term "Hot Mess" a lot at school, but yesterday I was a Cold Mess! So even though I only live about 5 miles, I clean up and get a "Jump Rope for Heart 2010" t-shirt from Coach....and I smelled like coffee all day, but it was just easier to stay at school! The kids kept saying, "Ummmm, you sure do smell good." "You smell like my kitchen." Even, "You smell like Starbucks!" Yep, that was my Wednesday!
So today I start out, new, refreshed, clean and showered! Wearing one of my hubby's Florida State University shirts 'cause it is team day for Say No To Drugs Week and the HUGE Florida vs. Georgia outdoor party is this weekend...Google it, I'm not kidding, Gators and Bulldogs live for this weekend....I am proud to be a Seminole in an outnumbered Gator school! Our school mascot is even the Gators! I have my Intel Math Workshop all day tomorrow, so I wanted to leave my room High and Tight with terrific plans for the sub. 
Wrong again! 
Long story short very short, I end up at the Workers Comp Doctor! 
All I could picture was this scene from Monsters, Inc. 
 Before the Code 2319
After the Code 2319
Poor Monster!
When I got back to school and finished doing my room and leaving the sub plans, my co-teacher buddy and I were walking out. My principal, who I adore, called me to follow up on me and I flat out told her...I'm seriously thinking of this whole Florida Virtual School! She knew I was joking, but there are days when it is a wonderful fantasy! :) 
{Side Bar....hubby didn't want/need his shirt back!}
Don't forget, tomorrow is Freebie Friday at Teaching Blog Addict! I write that post/linky party and it is not only a wonderful way to get freebies, it is also a terrific to way to bring traffic to your site if you are a blogger...the last few weeks we've had some Fridays get over 5,000 views and some have had over 70+ links to teaching freebies... 
 How about you? How was your week?!?

Sarah, Plain and Tall

 
"Did Mama sing every day?"
Caleb asks his sister Anna.
"Every-single-day," she answers.
"Papa sang, too."
I read this part and I about started boo-hooing! 
Do you have a book that you know you should have read as a child or as a teacher, but never read?
Well, I had never read Sarah, Plain and Tall. I was in one of my friend's classroom on Wednesday and saw it and asked if I could borrow it. I finished it that night! {Wooo-hooo, way to go Fern, you finished a 3rd grade level book in one night, my mother would be so proud of me!} But it was terrific, I couldn't put it down. If you have never read it, it is about a motherless family living on a prairie and the Papa puts an ad in the paper, asking for a wife, and he receives a letter from one Sarah Elisabeth Wheaton, of Maine! The Papa, Anna and Caleb write back to her and she decides to come out and give it a try for a month....that's it, no more, I have a tendency to give away the entire book! :)
I was even reading some of the parts to my husband, since he grew up on a farm and could relate to parts of the book! I teach Third Grade Math and Science this year, so I don't teach Reading. But I have great files, because as a Navy Wife, you never know when you have to change grades, subjects, schools, etc. My hubby is retired now, but you never know.... here is a terrific FREEBIE I have in my files from TeachersPayTeachers that have been made by The Wise Guys.
