Work was pretty uneventful. We got off on time or a little most days this week which is not normally the case.
I had another successful platelet donation. I had some issues when donating shortly after coming home from Australia. The staff suggested I was probably mildly dehydrated and after increasing my fluid intake for several days prior to the donation I have had no issues.
|Thankfully it hasn't gotten this cold yet.|
We had our very first Grading Party Thursday night. We met at Panera to eat, chat, laugh, and grade the piles of papers we all had to deal with. It was so much fun and I really hope we do it again!
My students are so super sweet! One of them could tell I was having a bad day on Wednesday so he kept cracking jokes to make me smile. Another told me today that she was going to miss me this weekend. So sweet!!
- Dealing with slow people in the self checkout registers at the grocery store. I ran in there one day this week and a lady rushed to beat me to the last open self serve register and then proceeded to go slower than a turtle to scan her 5 items. The other 3 people using the self serve were no faster. I wish people who use the self serve registers in a quick and efficient manner would just use a regular checkout lane and leave the self serve for those who can use it without causing a massive backup.
|See if you can find the disc in this pile of leaves. (hint - Its blue)|
Looooong hours at work this week! The only day I left before dark was Thursday and that was because of the grading party. I think Alex is going to forget what I look like soon!
I have now finished my second full week of dealing with this crappy head cold. My voice is only at about 50% and my throat hurts all the time. It is time for this cold to go away!
We hope you had more happies this week than crappies!
