We made it back from our trip on Saturday afternoon...I thought we would return Friday...but my travel companions had other plans. I spent the day in bed Sunday with a migraine. Not nice! I guess my body thought I needed the sleep!

We did have one hour of sun on the beach during our trip to North Florida. I'll post pictures soon.

Back to work today. I could tell the kind of day it would be when the front office buzzed my room at 7:30am.

Front office: Good morning! Did the assistant principal happen to tell you that you are going to a training for the new audio enhancement system?

Me: Umm, no, I don't remember that...

Front office: Okay we weren't sure. It is at 10:00 this morning.

Me: Wanting to scream as I think about the hours of work I didn't do this weekend because of our extended trip but instead answering cheerfully Oh, okay.

Front office: It is in your classroom.

Me: Oh. (pause) Okay.

Yep. I got to add "frantically clean classroom before 9AM Code Red drill" to my to do list. Thankfully I got a ride to school with a friend so I was THERE on time for once. I also got to host the vendor and make small talk. I was not in the mood for small talk.

Most importantly though, I survived! My in-laws had homemade french onion soup waiting for us when we got home. The Irishman and I cleaned tonight. Not fun, but we got a lot done.

Now however, I am off to bed. Thankfully it is a three day week for my little darlings. The Irishman's parents picked up a parking pass this morning for Sunrise Mass at the beach, so it should be a wonderful weekend!

Is it wrong to be thinking about the weekend (and GB's cooking...yum!)already when it is only Monday?

The soup sounds so good right now! We are getting a late winter freeze up here!

I'm so glad you made it back in one piece, and its a holiday can look forward to the weekend :)

You sound like you have WONDERFUL in-laws! So lucky! (How did I not get so lucky? - oops.)
