Search Me!

28 Apr

Moving is not fun. I mean like for anyone. I guess I’ll take solace in the fact that 2 people used the search term, “What not to do at Hogwarts” to find my blog.

Also, Bond seems to he adjusting well…



I’m ready!

11 Oct

I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready!

I feel you Spongebob, I feel you.

So, I’m all moved in.  I pretty much have everything where I want it to go.  Just a few miscellaneous boxes and odds and ends need to be put away.  Why, you may ask, am I ready?  Well, I’m ready for my gas to be turned on!  Yes, that’s right I haven’t had a hot shower since Friday.  Cool, sure.  Lukewarm even, but hot?  Not a chance.

The gas people were supposed to be here today between 12-4.  They said they would call first.  I had my phone with me the last part of the day, just to make sure I wouldn’t miss them.  I left school right when we could so I could be here.  What did I see when I got home?  You got it, a slip saying sorry we missed you!  What the h??  They were here at 12:15.  So much for calling ahead.  Now, my gas for the water won’t be turned on until Thursday between 8-12.  You better believe I will be here.  Sheesh!

Bond is finally settling in.  On Friday, he pretty much thought the world was coming to an end…

I'm going where?

 Saturday he thought the ceiling fans were minions of death…

They'll never find me here!

And on Sunday he thought the ice maker was going to attack him.  It’s been a stressful couple of days for 007.  He hasn’t been as suave and cool as he would like you to think he is.

I like my new place.  I am a hop, skip, and a jump away from the bay.  It’s pretty cool.  I’m excited to be so close to my favorite running/walking path and my favorite Starbucks! 

I promise to update on a more regular basis.  Also, hopefully, I get back into a more regular training routine. 

Happy almost Hump Day!

A few of my favorite things…

9 Dec

I promise this is going somewhere!

Yesterday, I was sitting with one of students and trying to get him to write.  It’s really hard for him to come up with anything to say.  He’s the lowest reader in our class.  I told him he could write about anything.  His favorite color, his favorite food to eat, his mom…  ”

S -Oh!  I’ll write about my mom!

MG- Great, that’s perfect!  What do you want to say?

MG – My mom likes to…

S – My mom likes to…move!

MG – Oh, your mom likes to dance?

S – No, my mom likes to move.  Like she moves around a lot.

I quickly realized that he meant that his mom likes to mom apartments a lot.  He then drew a picture of him, his mom, a big box, and his suitcase.  He even told me that he can pack his own suitcase.  Then, he said that he was moving on Friday.  I think the last part was a fib.  I think.

Oh teaching…and children…
