This is what my vacation was filled with. After the holidays there was a snowy day and time just being with my girls. It was wonderful! We headed back to work and school and that alarm at 5:45 came much to quickly for someone who had been staying up later than she should.
Luckily it was only a three day week and I made it! We have been setting some new rules at school about arrival and dismissal times. It's been an adjustment for the students and for me as well. Our secretary who is new this year and seems to enjoy giving me a hard time. In the morning I tried to get into the building and buzzed. She answers, "May I help you?" I'm thinking to myself, "Seriously lady?" But instead say, "Um, I'd like to come in to work." She replies, "Ok. Only if you don't let the students in." It was the coldest day all winter and she's messing with me." I also made the mistake of walking to subway to grab lunch. When I came back I buzzed again. I figured she didn't hear me so I buzzed again. She replies, "I appreciate your patience...can I help you?" in her snottiest tone. This is the first person people are greeted with when they come to our school. I'm scared of her. I can't imagine how the parents feel. I must figure out I better way to get in the building. However I survived, tomorrow is Friday.
