It’s a Monday

It wasn’t really bad, but I’m dragging today.  I actually did get to bed early and slept well, but had to get to school early.  I got there at 7:30 to get things set up for the professional development today.  The presentation that another teacher and I had to do seemed to go well.  We ended up with a longer lunch so I picked up something and came home to eat it.  I changed into jeans and a t-shirt so I could do some cleaning in the afternoon.  I worked in an extra classroom that has been used for storage so I could move some stuff out of the back of my library storage area.  I got a pretty good start, but I hope to keep working on it this week and then get all the textbooks that are sitting in the front of my library put up.  I came home and felt the need to take a nap before going to orchestra rehearsal.  I did sleep and was having some weird dreams.  I dreamed that my sister was pregnant and about to have a baby, but she had a hysterectomy when she was 29.  It was very strange.  The alarm on my phone went off at 6:00 so I could get up and get to rehearsal on time, but I decided to not go.  I am one of four clarinets so it’s not like I’m going to be completely missed.  I did email someone to let them know, but I decided I just needed a quiet night at home.  I had lots of dishes that needed to be washed, laundry to do, and I just wanted to take it easy tonight.  So that’s what I’m doing.  Tomorrow I have band rehearsal and then on Wednesday Matt is coming over for supper and we are going to do some Scrabble practice to prepare me for the upcoming tournament this weekend.  Things just seem to keep moving fast here – which isn’t bad, but I’m finding I simply needed a break this evening.

Oh, if I only knew the way to your heart. Scrabble. I would even move that old ford truck in the front yard of my house and all the old appliances to entice you to Alabama.

Andrew, I would play Scrabble with you any time.
