Well, this has been quite an eventful day. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to even update my Facebook status. So, I figured why not just blog it.
The day started out with me as guest reader in the girl’s preschool class. I read Mother Mother I Feel Sick (Remy Charlip & Burton Supree) and Imagine (Mark Marshall). I even did voices… sometimes only for my own amusement. For example, in Imagine, when the pup goes into space, I used my best Kirk voice. I’m not sure that the teachers even got it (I know the rug rats didn’t), but I had fun with it anyway. And what made it really great was that the kids were all so well behaved, quiet, and attentive.
As a bonus, I got to stick around and observe “circle time,” which included the Pledge of Allegiance, songs such as the Days of the Week Song (to the tune of The Addams Family theme song) and Macarena Months (because they do the Macarena while they name the months). I also got to see the girl become “Calendar Girl,” helping the class to name the days of the week and count the days on the calendar in the classroom. Of course, I took photos on my phone. But, dummy me totally forgot that I could have just video recorded it. Duh!
From there, I went to Kohl’s with my 30% off coupon. Is it really saving when you buy winter coats for yourself and your child, plus several other items? In any case, I’m very excited about my new coat – I’ve been needing one for a few years now, but never found one I liked until today. Now, if I could just find good snow boots.
After my lunch, I picked up the girl from lunch bunch and we headed to Jewel, where we stocked up on some staples like pasta and apples, and I finally decided to take the neti pot plunge. It’s pretty gross. And I can’t say that I’m very good at it yet. I kept gagging when I tried to do the left side. Still, it seemed to work, but, I’m sorry to say that an hour later, I’m getting stuffed up again. Still, it’s better than getting my head all fuzzy from daytime cold meds. Right? I don’t know. I think the jury’s still out on this one. We’ll see how it goes a few more times.
I’m curious. How many of you are neti pot proponents? Do share in the comments section below.
