Cole woke up this morning with a fever and tummy ache. Unfortunately, he didn't wake up until we were getting ready to leave, so I had to scramble to figure out what to do. It's this kind of day that makes it tough being a teacher and living 30 minutes away from school.
After 5 phone calls letting various people know what was going on, Little Miss and I headed to school to get things organized for a sub and a morning field trip. Cole stayed with daddy and looked at tractor magazines so he was one content little boy.
I got sub plans organized for me and my IRLBFF teacher across the hall, then let one sub know she would be going on a music field trip while the other sub stayed behind with a small group of 5th graders. I haven't heard anything, so I assume it all went well.
Sometimes I forget that the world will continue to go on even if I am not at school in charge.
I have spent the majority of my unexpected day off changing my layout and header. I broke down and spent $10.00 on credits at Scrapblog since they are now charging for some of their items. And my bloggy friend, Marilyn at The Parks Farm, taught me just enough more HTML code to make me a very dangerous woman. I have spent way too much time messing around on this computer today. I blame her.
I did get a few chores done, but should really get off my butt and tackle the laundry situation.
Poor Cole is so pathetic. He has had a fever all day...and hasn't moved from the couch except to get on the recliner. Hopefully he perks up soon and we can enjoy the weekend.
Have a wonderful Friday. And now your moment of zen...
