My "Chubby Hubby" (who will be known as "CH" from here on out whether he likes it or not!) and OS got back into town yesterday afternoon. OS got his vehicle packed up (complete with school supplies and a reusable bag of food) and headed back to his home away from home.
I finally got a wonderful night's sleep: I just don't sleep well when CH isn't there. I can't sleep if I don't go to bed first (snoring...HELLO! Him, not me!), but it's nice to know he's in the house.
I was in a state of crisis yesterday at work. You have no idea what if feels like to not be able to find this:
"This" is a black folder which holds special ed students' special ed records. You know, important things like permission to eval, eligibility reports, evaluation reports, and IEPs. I spent a couple of hours on Tuesday trying to find a student's black folder so I could put a report in it. It wasn't there. Talk about panic! I left a voice mail for the speech pathologist who saw the child last year...she didn't return my call, which was really strange. So, I e-mailed and found out she wasn't at work that day, but she hadn't given me the black folder yet. RELIEF! Of course, I didn't find that out until yesterday morning when I checked my e-mail, so I was practically in tears Tues. night thinking that I was really losing it. I'm a very organized person in my work life: I turn things in on time, make charts for just about everything, and do things the right way. Right before I left school on Tuesday, I was going to grab another student's black folder and check on something. Guess what? It wasn't there. Seriously. This student had also gone to a different school last year, only I know for sure that the SLP gave me his black folder at the end of the year. I put it in my file cabinet in my room, then transferred it to where it belongs when we came back to school last month. There are things in there that can not be duplicated. I seriously thought about making copies of everything just in case, but with the size of my caseload and the shortage of funds, that just isn't feasible or realistic. So, I'm going to have to make a chart that lists transfer students, dates that the black folder and work folder were received, and what I did with the black folder. This is seriously driving me crazy. (Okay, so maybe all isn't right with the world!)
I spent a long time the past couple of nights watching the hummingbirds. Last night we had as many as 5 at one time...that's the most I've seen all summer. They are amazing to watch: chasing each other, seeming to dance with each other. They are incredible little animals, for sure!
Last, but certainly not least: We have had some celebrity sightings in our county of a huge celebrity:
Apparently these 2 are dating and are rumored to be engaged. Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander is a resident of our county, and supposedly Shaq is now living with her. They've been spotted in Waffle House and the WalMart in the small town. He was suppose to have been at the big rivalry game last Thursday, but I haven't heard if he really showed up or not. I was skeptical when I first heard it; the teacher who told me is the teacher who has the "SkunkApe" business! Interesting...very interesting.
Hope everybody has a wonderful Wednesday!
