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!
