*I did FOUR full (jam-packed full) loads of laundry over the weekend. Yes, you read that right. And yes, there are still just two of us in this household.
*I obviously am GREAT at procrastinating laundry.
*I’m really great at procrastinating a lot of things, actually. In fact, I’m so good at procrastinating, I haven’t even picked up the book that I bought myself for Christmas entitled The Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination.
*I wish I were kidding.
*Last week, I had to get a sub for part of the day while I went to our sister school (the closest intermediate school to us that shares our same curriculum) to observe two teachers. Lemme share a little hint with you: I’ve learned from multiple experiences (not just from this one time last week, mind you) that when a teacher says, “Hope you don’t mind a little bit of chaos,” you know you’re in for a real shocker of a class. I mean, we’re talking students out of their desks, sending and receiving pictures on their phones, picking up their fellow classmates and carrying them around the room, a girl stabbing her friend repeatedly in the wrist with her pencil…bedlam, I tell ya. And then I wonder why people have such a bad view of education nowadays.
*Listen, people–WE’RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT.
*So kinda funny story–Sunday night, I had to go to a meeting with one of the older young women in the youth program I’m in charge of. During a certain section of the meeting, the young women and leaders were separated to get different information on how our summer camp is going to run, and at the end of the adult presentation, the person in charge asked for any questions. So I raise my hand and ask where the informational packets were supposed to be delivered when they were all completed. The leader, looking a bit surprised that anyone actually had questions, said, “Oh don’t worry–just hand it to your young women’s president and she’ll know what to do.” I immediately raised my hand back up, and the surprised leader called on me again, asking what I needed. “Um,” I said. “I AM the young women’s president, and I have no idea what’s going on.”
*Everybody got a good laugh out of that one.
*What’s been going on with you lately?
