- I went to church.
- Taught first grade Sunday School.
- Bought an interview suit so I can interview at the district job fair on Thursday (my school is closing and we all have to find new jobs).
- Came home and ate lunch, and hunted down my teenagers, who are way too cool for church.
- Emailed a coach that had asked me a question about one of my boys.
- Tried to wash the car, but the line was at least an hour, and I didn't think I had time to wait
- Went to Home Depot to buy the biggest lanyard I could find, because I keep losing my keys.
- Went to Sam's Club because my boys do not have school again until Friday and if I didn't have enough snacks, then they would resort to eating the cupboards and walls. which can get very expensive
- Came home and unloaded groceries from Sam's Club
- Hunted down my teenagers again.
- Picked up the backyard (can anyone tell me why the dogs belong to the family until it's time to get out the pooper scooper, and then they are all mine???)
- Had a brief, but very intense conversation with my eighteen-year-old (my children seem to have an uncanny ability for picking out the days when I have the least intellectual and emotional capability for intense conversations, and wanting to converse on those days)
- Hunted down Houdini the Lab, who somehow escaped from the yard while I was pooper scooping, and had wandered across the street to visit my neighbor and his two small (and now slobber covered) children
- Had another brief, but very intense conversation with my eighteen-year-old
- And now I am sitting here trying to write a slice of life, and wondering which one of my two-hundred pound teenagers is doing jumping jacks on the floor directly above me
And tonight, after I finish this not very exciting, but I am so going to do it for 31 days straight slice, I will:
- Finish my resume
- Write a cover letter to go with the resume
- Go online and apply to schools with open positions
- Email the principals of those schools
- Respond to kids' writing from Friday
- Try to decide what last one or two things I can teach kids before our "Blessed Event" starts on Tuesday morning
- Make lesson plans for this week
- Feed my children and my animals.
- Mop the kitchen floor, which is totally sticky from who knows what someone spilled while I was at church
So yeah, technically, I believe in the Sabbath, but it sure isn't happening at my house. Not this week anyway.
