I had a chance to Facetime with Sebastian on Tuesday!  He's doing well and seems so happy.  Of course, I made him tell me that I'm still his favorite teacher.  LOL!

One week down.....

Download word art here

     So, I managed to complete the first week of teaching the summer learning academy and if you add up all the hours that we actually had AC in the building it might equal one day.  It might, but I doubt it!

23 more days to go!  Actually, I know that I'll miss one day so I only have 22 more days.  LOL!

I'm tired!

Monday was the first day of summer school.  I had 9 students in my class.  I've been told to expect more as the week goes by.  I don't know what I'll do with more kids when this one day has worm me out completely!

What have I gotten myself into?

***Come back tomorrow for the "you" version of this word art, because we've all got that one friend...***

OK, so signing up to teach summer school probably wasn't the best idea in the world!  We were told that we would start June 12th and work from 8 - 3.  Then they came out and said keep the 2nd and 5th open for training.  Then they said you'll also need to go to training on the 9th.  Then they said you'll actually need to work the whole week of June 5th.  Then they said you'll be working from 7:45 to 3:30. 

 Then, just to pour salt on our wounds, we found out that our little thirty minutes lunch breaks will be unpaid breaks.  You know those thirty minutes breaks that are actually more like ten to fifteen minute brakes, (IF YOU'RE LUCKY!) because you're always being called to do something during that time.

THEN, I'm not one of the lucky people who gets to use their own class room.  My whole hall is shut down for the summer and even though I'm going to have a Kindergarten class, I'll be in one of the second grade rooms.  The teachers who class rooms are being used were all told to KEEP things on up on the walls and bulletin boards.  Most teachers very happily did this because it was less work for them at the end of the year.  Guess who is using a room where the teacher decided to take everything down except for their torn bulletin paper........ME!!!

I just keep telling myself to relax and think about the extra money and the fall break and birthday vacations that it will pay for.....it's not working right now, but I keep trying.....

We have power!

***I think I've corrected the download link.  Remember that you can also right click and save the image!***

We made our daily stop by the house to pick up the mail and check on things.  We hadn't been in the place but a couple of seconds when I heard a sound and looked around trying to figure out what it was.  That was when I noticed there was a lamp on and screamed, "POWER!  We've got power!"

After three and a half days it was pretty exciting!

Not exactly the best start to my summer!

So a storm blew through here Saturday night and knocked out the power and......it's still out!

We were already in bed Saturday night when the storm came through and I really must have missed something, because I just didn't think it was all that bad.  When the power went out, I didn't think anything about and figured it would come back on sometime later in the night or the early morning at the latest.  Man, oh man, was I ever wrong!

We got up Sunday morning and  learned that most of Memphis was without power.  I took advantage of the down time to sleep and sleep and then sleep some more.  The day wore on and we still didn't have power and I was completely over the novelty of it all!

When we still didn't have power by Monday afternoon I insisted that we check into a hotel.  That's right.....my inner Princess needs air conditioning!

With the kind of luck I have, I assured OCG that as soon as we checked into the hotel our power would come back on.  I'm not sure if my luck is getting better or worse though because so far no power.

So, we are enjoying life at the Marriott and since there are still about 60 thousand people with no power we may be here for awhile.  I'm kind of ok with that though because we've got a pool and a gym and a bar in the lobby.  LOL!

OK, I'm not going to complain in this update!

Check out this photo Sebastian's mom posted a couple of days ago.....

The picture on the bottom right is from his first day of Kindergarten.  The day I was lucky enough to become his teacher!  The picture on the top is from his last day in Kindergarten and the picture on the left was taken on the day of his fifth grade graduation.

He's as cute and amazing as ever!  This year he wrote a play and the Disney Dreamers program hired actors and produced it.  He wrote a play!  Disney made sure people got to see it performed!  My heart is full!

This time it is my fault...

I know I wrote down what fonts I used somewhere, but with the cable/internet problems and school ending I have no idea where I put that paper.  SORRY

It wasn't my fault!

Download word art here

I know I disappeared again, but it wasn't my fault this time!  You can thank Comcast this time! 

Just in case I haven't said this lately, Comcast sucks and I hate them!

My cable and internet went out.  After several phone calls with what they call "customer service", I finally convinced them that no matter how many times I unplugged everything and waited 30 seconds nothing was going to work! 

They decided that I needed a new box, and because of my schedule it was a couple of days before I could stop by to pick one up.  I got home, connected everything again and.....NOTHING!  No cable, no internet, NOTHING!  I watched a YouTube video on my phone to make sure I had everything connected correctly before once again calling Comcast. 

The guy who was tormenting...."helping" me made me unplug everything and wait for 30 seconds three times before he decided that I must have everything connected wrong.  He made me unhook everything and then he carefully talked me through reconnecting everything THE SAME EXACT WAY I had it connected to begin with!  We then played the unplug and wait game three more times before he decided that they were going to have to send someone out to take care of it in person. 

I needed to wait for a weekend appointment that finally arrived and after an hour the guy got everything working, but said that someone else would still need to come out and rewire everything.  He called and set up another weekend appointment for me. Thirty minutes after he left.....everything stopped working again.  The cable eventually came back up, but not the internet.

The weekend came and everything finally got fixed......FINGERS CROSSED!  But, then it ws the last week of school and I was tired so I waited until today to catch up on everything.

So, you can blame Comcast this time and if everything goes out again you can start collecting money for my bail.  I'm probably going to need lots!
