So glad Monday is done

Quote from long ago:  the hurrieder I go, the behinder I get

If I didn’t know better, I would think my body is having PMS.  All day it seemed like I couldn’t finish a task (the towels are folded but not put away), spilling stuff (sugar on the stove, counter, floor), forgetting what I went down to the basement to fetch (brown gravy mix for the beef roast and potatoes).

Today was a school holiday, and there were 6 things on my To Do List.  As I sit here thinking about getting ready for bed, I look around and see that 5 of the things are still waiting.

Husband assures me that everyone has an “Off” day sometimes.  Although the things need to be done, nothing is urgent and will wait until I get around to it.

Bless his heart, he even loaded the dishwasher while I’m in front of the blue screen.

So I guess I should log off and move along.

Job in an elementary school tomorrow, but I don’t recognize the name of the regular TA, so I’m not sure what I’ll be doing.  I hope it does not involve cafeteria supervisor, which is second on my Dislike List, after Bus Lane Duty.

Here’s hoping your week began a bit easier.

    Ok, Diane…dare I say: “Welcome to getting older?” (I’m 61, so I guess I could represent the ‘older’ crowd here). I have ‘those’ days, too, where I drop or knock over more things than I should and forgetting…now THERE’S a subject for all of us who have experienced: “Senior Moments” (although I hate to actually admit to being a ‘senior’…give me a few more years before I’ll admit to that one!).
    Rejoice…you made it through another day, even though it was a tough one, today’s another day…and whatever it brings; hope it’s a good one for you.

    I sometimes have off days as well. Just start a new list tomorrow. Hope your Tuesday is going better. Take care!

    See you are not alone my friend. We all have days like yours but we survive and you will too. Your update about son’s job was very good news.

    Well, my job today was a goodun.
    In Kinnygarten, so the morning lesson was the Letter People, then Phys Ed with me responsible for watching only 2 LD students

    Playground Supervisor for Recess, my own lunch, then Sub for 40 minutes in the office for the assistant there to have her lunch break (I crocheted 3/4 of potholder and took 2 phone messages, also had one little girl rest on the cot in the Nurses’ office until she returned from her own lunch)

    Afternoon, in the Work Room use a template press to cut out 2 sets of lower case letters of the alphabet for a different teacher, help in First Grade science experiment to taste salt water, then
    be the aide for 2 LD students who went out to the parking lot for a tour through Safety House

    After school, help with backpacks, jackets, and line-up, then do room wipe-down, and wash used toys and dishes in the sink while the teacher and other TAs escorted students to bus and other ways going home.

    A nice day, even better that I got wages,
    cuz it is the same stuff I do at church as a Volunteer
