I am so tired.
I have been to school every day this week for meetings and shopping, and everything else. Okay, so today is only Tuesday, but that's how out of it I am. It feels like it should be Friday or something. Yesterday (Monday?) I met up with my new co-teacher and the head teacher for the 3's. We ate at Applebee's and went back to school to make lists of what all we needed to get and to have done before orientation. We are doing a doggy theme and our class mascot is named Brownie. He has one brown ear and a brown tail. I adore him. Java is going nutters trying to get at him, but I put him way up on the top shelf over the tv so he won't be destroyed.
My co-teacher and I had a blast going to Build-A-Bear to pick him out. I think we were worse than the kids in there, gushing over the cute clothes. The amount of clothes and accessories in that place is insane. We probably would have spent loads of money if we hadn't stopped when we did. As it is, Brownie got a new pair of Batman pajamas, a Falcons sweatshirt, a pair of cool black sunglasses, and a dog carrier to ride in when the kids take him home. The idea is that Brownie will go home with a different child every day, as long as that particular child behaves properly in class. If they don't, then they lose the turn until next time. Brownie will also keep a journal of his adventures sleeping over at each child's house throughout the year.
No writing today. What a bummer. I have really been in the mood these past few days. It's like an itch I can't scratch....
