Last night I posted this on Facebook:
|Wine for one. It's been a rough day!|
And it was. A rough day, I mean. The school secretary was taking a vacation day off, the office assistant had to cover a classroom all day when a substitute failed to show up, and I had responsibility for the whole office--all the phone calls, buzzing people in at the front door (the camera and speaker are on my desk), checking IDs on people signing students out, taking messages for the administrators and counselors, etc..--all by myself. On a Friday, when dozens of kids get signed out early. And yesterday we had a surprise assembly for the 8th graders at 2:30 where two former NFL football players came to the school to speak. That meant that all the kids that got signed out from about 2pm on were down in a noisy assembly in the gym and I had to radio down there repeatedly to get someone to find them. Then after I did afternoon announcements at dismissal, I had to listen for buses to announce as well as calls on the walkies for kids to report to the car lines. And I still hadn't finished my discipline reports that have to be done before I can leave. I was ready to pull my damn hair out by the end of all that!
So I felt that a couple of glasses of wine were well deserved. Gregg doesn't care for alcohol in any form so I had to drink alone. Note the pretty wineglass with my initials on it--it was part of a set that Marla gave me for Christmas that she engraved herself! The wine is a nice red blend that I enjoy.
The only bad thing about having a couple of glasses of wine was falling asleep at 9:30pm on a Friday night! I can't hold my liquor like I used to.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Now that was a busy day juggling so many different things at once, sort of like being an air traffic controller. I agree a glass of wine is very mellowing at the end of the day.ReplyDelete
It is like being an air traffic controller!Delete
Be proud of yourself for all that you accomplished that day.ReplyDelete
I think some of my coworkers admire my calm demeanor in the face of utter chaos.Delete
Oh, Lord, wine for one is my routine around here. Dave doesn't drink so I usually have wine in the evening on my own. Just one or, maybe, two. :)ReplyDelete
Your day DOES sound hectic. Even on my busiest days I don't think I'm THAT busy!
Damn, Steve. I wish we lived in the same town...we could get together for wine while the husbands stayed sober. Wouldn't that be fun? !Delete
Absolutely! Come on over! :)Delete
you DESERVED that wine!ReplyDelete
I thought so too!Delete
I'd have done the same thing ... and been in bed by 9:30, too!ReplyDelete
I feel kind of pathetic when I go to bed that early on a weekend night!Delete
Menage a Trois drunk alone? I don't think that's how it was intended!ReplyDelete
I know, right!? ;)Delete
I bet your day went quick! Enjoy your wine.ReplyDelete
I did enjoy the wine...I'm finishing the bottle tonight.Delete
That was a load! Well done. Well deserved. Well dispatched.ReplyDelete
Whew! It was a helluva day!Delete
I have a feeling you would have been ready for bed BEFORE 9:30 without the wine. Girl, you were exhausted!ReplyDelete
My daughter Lily, who works at a grocery store, tells a story about a Valentine's Day when she was doing check-out. A guy came through her line with a bottle of that wine and TWO bouquets of roses. She so wanted to say something but didn't. But she still remembers.
Hahaha! That's an awesome story! Sounds like that guy was about to get REALLY lucky!Delete
And you survived! Well done, you deserved your wine.ReplyDelete
Congrats on surviving a horrible day. Some days just cry out for wine.ReplyDelete
Good for you! Sometimes a glass for one is the best wine of all.ReplyDelete
After such a day you deserved a couple of glasses of vino. It was like Custer's last stand!ReplyDelete
