You know, today wasn't my best day. Aliza said I was mean and grumpy. I didn't mean to be; I thought maybe some children around here could behave a little better and make me happier. We certainly had our moments and just when I thought that everything was winding down...I had to clean up a mess. Little Miss Independent (that would be Anna) went downstairs--after the lights were turned out--and helped herself to a cupcake. That was all fine and dandy until I had to go downstairs after everyone was asleep and stepped on the open container of remaining cupcakes that was placed on the bottom step of the dark stairs. Frosting everywhere. Cleaning up, yet another, mess was that last thing I wanted to do at 9:30pm.
Yesterday, however, we got to cancel school to freeze corn. Forget Labor Day and snow days, we cancel school to WORK!! Ah well. It was good work. I had imagined a whole lot more than one wheelbarrow full of corn so the work wasn't as long as I had planned on.
