Blogging on I71 South

Heading back home after dropping my niece off with my sister, I open my iPad.  What to write about?  I'm tapped out.  It's dark.  The red tail lights ahead of us could so easily lull me to sleep.  So my husband chips in with ideas which sparked some of my own:


  • Goop (Today's science experiment was as exciting if not more so than yesterday's.)
  • Cleaning Goop up which is all over the classroom (Yikes!)
  • Boys pretending Goop is snot coming out of their noses (That was kind of funny and kind of gross.)
  • One of my quietest girls pretending Goop is vomit projecting out of her mouth  (It was totally out of character, which made it pretty funny.)
  • Forgetting my lunch and succumbing to the red velvet cookies at the register at Panera (It was very good by the way.)
  • Buying Wonder on my Kindle  because I left my book at home (It WAS an emergency.)
  • Explaining to my husband why I NEEDED to start reading Wonder today (You all get it, don't you?)
  • Introducing my students to Auggie (I know they are going to fall in love with Wonder.)
  • Cleaning up cat poop off the floor (It's not really that interesting and is just more grossness.)
  • Traffic, traffic, and more traffic (Really, the new Cabela's is that popular?)
  • Irritable Sister Syndrome (I probably shouldn't air dirty family laundry on my blog.)

 I'm not sure any of these is worthy of it's own post, but put together, it pretty well sums up my day.
Tomorrow is Saturday; lots of possibilities await me.

  1. Sounds like you had a really full (and kind of gross) day! Bet your kids will remember the Goop day! Especially since it was topped off with WONDER! And the irritable sister syndrome made me laugh (I have had more than a few of those myself)! Hope tomorrow will be quieter and maybe not quite as gross!

  3. Ahh. Goop. An all time favorite booger/barf science experiment.

    Eating red velvet cookies while reading Wonder--perfect.

    I totally get both of them!

  4. I completely understand how leaving Wonder at school could create an emergency. And yes, goop does provide a lot to do, talk about, and write about. Hope your sister is back on track tomorrow. If not, enjoy Wonder.

  5. Love this bullet list of your day! And yes, not having Wonder constitutes a minor national emergency, the Kindle purchase was totally justified. My kids loved Wonder and were so disappointed that it didn't get any Newbery recognition. I just remind them that it has lots of kid recognition!

  6. *laugh* The buying Wonder on the Kindle sounds like my house. My husband does that all the time. He's re-reading a series we own but was out and about and had a 'reading emergency' and repurchased them on kindle. Then he did the same thing but while at HOME so he could read on his app under the covers and not wake me with the light :)
