OK. I drive bus for headstart, right? Where the parents [or grandma or babysitter or whatever] has to come out to put the kid on the bus. So, as I was about ready to leave the Center today, one of the teachers comes out and wants to know if I can take one of the kids righ tback home [uh, hair issues] and I'm like, OK [cuz it's my job]. So, she comes back out with the kid saying that they hadn't been able to get ahold of the mom and did I notice whether the mom was dressed when she put the kid on the bus? Whoa...I stopped looking at what the person was wearing last year when the guys came bounding out of the trailer in pajama bottoms and holding onto his crotch like it was falling off! Very traumatic. So my best response to the teacher this morning was...'uhm, I dunno.' I mean, as long as nothing is falling out, I don't look to see whether they're still in their jammies or not. [and how can you tell anymore anyways?] Anyway, the mom wasn't home and I had to take her back to the Center where I was told that the mom was at her mom's. Why didn't we find that out before hand instead of hoping that she was 'just in the shower'????????? yeah, like that's something I would have wanted to interupt!!
It has rained a good bit here in the past few days. It was almost balmy the other night, at 57 degrees! There is a lot of small stream and field flooding. I remember how when I was in school, we always got so worried on the schoolbus when we saw the fields flooded. Like we were afraid it was going to get high enough to come over the road. Well, it liked to in some of the flat places, but never very badly.
Thanksgiving is over. Next on the agenda is Christmas. Sigh. Hanging of the Greens services, and parties and I want to scream at the busy-ness of it all. I mean, I've seen out church schedule and it's very full. God forbid anyone have a crisis during the holiday season...uhm, actually, yeah, You can take that as seriously as it is sarcastic.
Does anyone else get tired of the constant bombardment of Christmas music on the radios? I have nothing against all the carols and hymns and stuff---it's the constant headbanging consistancy of it during this time of year. there is so much of it, that I think we'd be better off sprinkling it throughout the year. But that's just my opinoin.
Ok. Going to go check the email now.
