About three times in the school year I have to take the afternoon off to go to a training at the district office. Basically the only thing good about these meetings is not really that I get to leave my kids - because then I have to do sub plans and thats a hassle at times... but the good thing is that usually the meeting gets out early and I have an extra hour in my day. During a normal school day I am allowed to leave the school at 4:00 but usually stay much longer. But when I have these meetings I am usually done by 3:15.
To some this probably doesn't seem like a big deal, but an hour or more to me opens up a whole new world of opportunity for cleaning, going to Walmart, washing clothes, reading a book, perhaps taking a nap... you never know what could happen in that hour. Well here is how I decided to spend my extra hour in my day:
Yes I decided to do one of my favorite past times and lock my keys in my car. So I got to sit on the steps of the district office (atleast it was warm outside) and wait for my gracious friend Klara to come pick me up because Mason had my only spare key and you know me... I'm to cheap to call a locksmith. Yes that's my reflection in the window... doesn't it kinda look like the keys are mocking me - the way they are hanging there?? Ooooo...
Thank you so much Klara!
