Too Soon

"I spoke too soon"

Well....sort of.

Here's a brief rundown of my first 'drop off run' - u know, taking the kids home.

I get all the kids on the bus, knowing that one girl needs to go to daycare, I automatically head for the one she went to last year...as I pull up, she says, "I don't go there anymore...I go to the new daycare..." Uh-oh. Now, this little girls a little more mature than the rest, so I believe her. I tried calling the other driver on the handheld radio to see if he was still at the center...no answer....tried calling the boss...no answer...I went back to the Center...no one could see the bus becuase of the ambulance, so no one could come out. So I cart the girl around the entire hour long route.........at the first stop, I sent a message through the mother to the Center....and then there was a bee on the bus!!!! I killed it, superhero that I am. One girl wants to "swing from the chandleirs"...if the bus had them. Oh my. Finally get back to center and figure out where the first little girl was supposed to go. Then I went and had donuts for lunch. And this was just the first day!!!!! We have so gotten started on the right foot, haven't we????

can anyone hear me go "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"??????

I was wondering what that noise from the eastern sky was...

Poor Ciera. I see the issues are continueing. A guess a new blog doesn't spell the end of the troubles at your church--and this new job on top of all that. Eeeek!

Michele sent me to calm you down. Ha-ha, not really. You're in charge of that. :-)

YOu may need to eat something a bit more nutricious if that is the way your days will be!

Michele sent me.

Ciera said...

Yeah - well, things are supposed to be getting straightened out at church, you know, issues being confronted and all that. I just think we ought to make sure we have the whole story before we go correcting people. Yeah I was wrong for disrespecting Chief, but he read into my words more than what was there!!! Oh well. It'll all come out someday.

Ciera said...

Kenju - yeah, my lunch was a bad one......I even had a big coffee too......that might explain the shaking!

Yeah - Fluke - those letters are a pain. I might turn them off - my brother gets hit with more spam than I do!

AHHHHH!!

I heard you go "ahhh"... I know how you feel! Our bus is a nuthouse of little kids :P

utenzi said...

Me again! You're trying to avoid me by only putting in part of your address, Ciera. Tsk-tsk-tsk. I found you anyway.

Michele sent me to find you!

Ciera said...

Man-o-man! Sorry Utenzi! I'm a little wasted on decongestant right now...I'll do better tomorrow!

Ciera,
I used to be a substitute teacher, so I rememeber taking the kids to the bus everyday and I remember thinking being the bus driver would be as hard or harder than subbing.

Hope it goes well for you. I'm sure the first days are the most difficult.

and, btw, Michele sent me.
