I have had swollen gums in the bottom back right side of my mouth. Damn braces. Because of this, I kept rubbing my tongue over it to see if there was something stuck in my gums. Now, I have a HUGE canker sore on the tip of my tongue. OUCH. Damn braces. I think because my gums are swollen, my braces have been rubbing against the inside of my cheek. Guess what? That is now swollen. OUCH. Really. Damn braces.
I just put candy on 5000 Valentines. Thank you to Ryan for doing his own. Maggie is eating some candy right now. I am soooooo tired of chasing after her. Brady is scolding her as we speak.
We leave tomorrow for TRF for the weekend. I am looking forward to a Maggie-less weekend. Really. You have no idea. I am feeling guilty, because Kate is staying with Grandma and Grandpa. She asked. They said sure. She wants to be at a 1pm birthday party sleepover on Sunday. So I won't see my sweet Kate for three days. Big families seem to seldomn be all together. At least our big family. So instead of six of us crammed in a big room it will be five. Whoo hoo. I still think it might be rough.
Today for the second time in my teaching career (and talking about the exact same subject), a student passed out in class. Female circumcision discussions will do that to you. Thanks to my friend Ryan J. who fainted under my desk in like 1987, I am the epitome of "flight" when you think of "fight or flight." Thank goodness my students knew what to do. They finally told a frozen Mrs. Stafford to call the nurse. I yelled, " I can't remember her name!" It's kind of hard to look up a phone number when your mind goes blank. We survived. The boy survived....I called his mom and apologized since I know her from church. **Note: mother when you finally read this I figure the phone will ring immediately. That's my teaser to you.**
I am co teaching for the first time. I have a class of--get this--32 BOYS and 6 girls. Many of these boys require a bit of extra attention. Wow is it fun for the most part, but sometimes I want to say eek!
Did I tell you how badly my mouth hurts? It hurts to be open and it hurts to be closed.
Now Maggie is eating tape. Have at it Maggie. You are awesome. *insert major sarcasm*
I need to pack. I need to do laundry. I need to bath my two little kids. I need to sleep.
And in case you were wondering, yes I am still smiling. Want to know why? Because in the car on the way to dance, Kate and Kailee told me they plan to play baseball. Now that made me laugh.
