It's FRIDAY! Wahoo!! It's been a loooong week for me so I am especially glad for this Friday to finally be here! And what better way to end a long week than by getting this jumble of random thoughts out of my head with Mrs4444's Friday Fragments? Wanna play along? Click the logo above!
Teagan earned her 10 stickers this week and got to be Ms Lori's special office helper. It was a great day! Unfortunately, her phone call to me happened right in the middle of my office furniture being moved so I didn't have my phone on me. But I did call back and one of her teachers, Ms Tori, went and got her so I could talk to her. I heard Tori take the phone off of hold, hand the phone to Teagan and tell her to "go ahead," and then I hear Teagan... "Thank you for calling Little Explorers! This is Teagan!" It was ADORABLE. She also sharpened pencils, drew a picture, answered the phone/intercom, got to lead a fire drill, and sent e-mails to me and Jeff (dictated to Ms Lori). (Ms. "Melay" is the sub who is covering for Ms. Mindi's maternity leave. Her name is Lynna (rhymes with Renee) and the kids all have a hard time getting the sounds right!) Here's mine:
I did it with Ms. Lori. I "sharptened" pencils for Ms. "Melay". I'm having a good day. I answered the phone. Ms. Sally called. I think that's it.
I will see you in the afternoon. I love you.

I "sharped" pencils for Ms. "Melay". I helped Ms. Lori in the office. I answered the phone when Ms. Sally called. I sent Mommy a letter, too.
I get to watch a movie today. If there's not any good ones, I know we're not going. I hope we're going.
I think that's it. I love you and I'll see you in the afternoon.

This week has both been a blur and crawled by. It's so weird when that happens.
I'm currently testing a Verizon Droid. I really, really like it. I'd be scared to own one because I'm certain I'd go over my "unlimited" data limits. But it does everything and I'm really impressed with it. It offers me a lot of convenience and fun and music and podcasts and maps and... but it's being returned on Monday. *sniff, sniff*
The new office space offers a whole new batch of personalities to get used to. I feel like I'm on Survivor and our tribes just merged... I wonder what color our buffs will be?
Busy times ahead... Teagan earned a movie outing this weekend, I'm taking her to see Christy's play this weekend, Tuesday is a Thanksgiving Feast at Teagan's school that the kids are preparing for the parents, I've got cooking to plan for multiple Thanksgivings coming up, we have a trip to Chicago in 2 weekends... lots going on.
With all that busy-ness, I'm glad that Teagan opted out of dance class. Because it would be really challenging to be squeezing a dance class commitment into all of this!
I've missed so much work time this week because of the move... I was without phone and computer for a good chunk of the day yesterday and even when I had it back, I was unpacking and organizing so I couldn't really get online or take calls. So I'd better skedaddle and get back to work!!
