Ho hum, it's Monday, back to work with one less hour in the weekend.
But let's face it, none of us were really going to be productive during that hour, right?
Despite all the awesome that's been going on in my life, there's lots of epic fails too. There's the amazon fail, which I already shared.
Friday was full of fails.
I was in an inservice with all other reading teachers. My BOSS was giving a presenation about No Child Left Behind and meeting AYP. By the end of this year 85% of our students need to read on or above grade level. (it doesn't matter if they are ESOL and just starting speaking English 2 years ago, or if they have an IQ of 70, or if they are homeless) 85% of our students have to read on grade level or above.
Next year it's 90%
By 2013 it's 95%
And by 2014 it's 100%
You know one of those laughs because whatever you just heard was so outlandish that it had to be a joke. An entire autoruim of teachers stared at me. My boss said, "I heard someone laugh." You would expect her to either laugh along or reprimand me, but there was nothing.
Then I later on in the day I was debating if I should get my nails done. I called by hubby and asked him "Hey, would I be the worst person in the world, if I went to get my nails done, instead of working out?"
Hubby says, "That's fine, but you better start going to the gym more."
OK wait, yes EVERYONE who read that, thinks my hubby meant, "Erinn, you're a fatty." What he meant to say is, "Hey, we spend a lot of money on our gym membership, you should go more than once a moon cycle."
I wasn't miffed and it wasn't MY FAIL but it was fail directed at me.
Then I was planning to go out with my friends, (I don't get dressed up often, so when I do, it should be an national holiday.)
Hubby was TRYING to make up for his ealier comment and said, "Erinn, you look beautiful." WIN FOR HUBBY. Then he turned to our daughter, "Doesn't Mommy look beauitful?"
Daugter peels her eyes away from the TV and said, "no. Mommy looks purple."
Then I went out with my friends to celebrate my birthday and Mo's birthday.
This is what I learned at dinner.
At the melting pot you can get EXTRA dippers. Seriously? I"ve been going to this restuarant for years and didn't know this.
Then I learned you can make marshmallows in your own kitchen. WHAT! Marshmallow aren't made by magical unicorns enslaved in factories. My whole world was BLOWN AWAY.
Lots of fails, but I hope they made you smile.
