dreams and work

I have to work today. 11:35 -> the end of the day... today, tomorrow, and wednesday. Wee!

I woke up at 9 (8:55 actually) after dreaming I'm not even sure what... there were people that now I'm not sure I knew... though I guess I did in the dream. I think one was Tim. I'm not quite fond of Tim and I'm glad we're not friends or barely even acquaintences cause that means its ok and easy to not be quite fond of him. In the one part I aparently *was* fond of him though and we were somewhere and he had a car from the 60s and some guy was sucking up to him telling him that he would love him to bring it in again just so he could look at it... makingsure to tell him that nothing needed to be aorked on, of course, he just wanted to have a look at it again. I kissed him.. but then, I seem to kiss all sorts of people when I'm dreaming. More than I'd consider in real life, if one can imagine (ha!)

I had another where I was in some sort of hall (like a vfw hall or something) with my grandma and the baby and they had food set up on tables... my grandma and mikale went somewhere for a few minutes and I got a plate (one of those styrofoam plates that has 3 sections) and I sampled all the things that looked edible/good. At one point there was a guy... i think I was supposed to know him... I dropped my plate food down on the table and some woman told me that it was ok cause the table was clean... I guess I was supposed to pick it up and eat it anyway. So I *did* clean it up. I think I said something to the guy that it was cool that he still liked me even when I was retarded... to which he replied something to the effect of when *wasn't* I?

I'll be subbing for 2nd graders... I also had an option of kindergarteners (woudl have been the same days at the same times) but I figured I might handle 2nd a little more easily.

I supose I ought to get myself ready to go. and make some breakfast.

I had 1st graders. The system had it down as 2nd. It didn't matter though. They were alright. I even had one tell me I was a good sub and there seemed to be noises of approval when they found out I'd be in tomorrow too.

Theres a "Foster Grandmparent" program that exists (I don't think I knew this) "Grandma Mary" volunteers in the class I'm subbing for. She was very very nice and stayed an extra half hour. She was very chatty and that was cool. She talked ot me about her family and her job and all sorts of things.

I got there and they were just finishing up with art. They had mini books to go over and read together on the carpet. We did that for about 20 minutes and then it was time for lunch. I went down with them and then when they went out for recess from 12:30 - 1:10 I had my lunch break. I didn't really need it though since I had just come from home and had just had breakfast! (yay for sleeping in!)

at 1:10 they had a Math worksheet to do until 1:50. For the next 10 or 15 minutes they had a bathroom/drink/pencil sharpening break. After that they had a Time Magazine for Kids to go over. It was about some astronaut guy whose name I've forgotten already. When they were finished I had them talk a little about what they like to do in the winter and then draw a picture of themselves doing osmething in the winter. Then they had about 7 or 8 minutes of free time and then it was time to go home! wee!

I prefer days where there is more for them to do than they have time for... That is so much better than more time than I know how to fill!

oh. and this is pretty.
