hello, goodbye

this will be quick because I just was informed that A finished the milk so now I have to run an errand before I can cook dinner.  Sorry for no post yesterday: my camera battery spazzed out again, but frankly, yesterday was lame anyways, so we’ll just move on!

This lovely morning I was insanely tired, so the oats I’ve been craving since vacation got pushed back another day 😦  I’ve been unable to fall asleep recently which is pretty frustrating.  I’ve always been kind of weird about sleep so I’m not going to let it bother me, I know some people swear by anti-insomnia medication but I’m always preferential to not taking pills.  What I ended up with for breakfast was a gingersnap Lara bar on the train.


This was good, but not a favorite as far as Lara bars go.

School was weird today, again.  I hate always saying something negative about work, but honestly it’s negative.  It’s a pretty toxic work environment.  My humor has always been kind of twisted and dark so at least it provides endless fodder for jokes with A 🙂  To make a long story short a student in my all boy’s class got angry, got in my face and screamed “I’m going to fucking shoot you.”  Fun, fun, fun.  According to DOE standards he should have a 6-10day suspension for threatening a teacher, and that is what my principal said when we discussed it, but I’m meeting with parents tomorrow so I’ll have to see what actually happens.  Because of the ridiculous way the DOE does accountability it looks bad to have a lot of suspensions so schools are reluctant to actually punish misbehavior, my principal is notorious for undisciplining.

On a happier note, I packed leftovers for lunch and they were delish!


The rest of my tofu and brussels sprouts.  FYI when I make tofu I cut the package into 4 pieces, and eat two at a time for a 200calorie serving.

I didn’t have afterschool but got home latish anyways because my coworker’s car broke down mid-highway, eeek!  Let’s all send some healthy transmission thoughts towards Mr. C!

While I huffed to A about my day I finally tried this Glenny’s dessert I bought awhile back.


I’m going to go with *.  I’m pretty wary of “100calorie” items and this fit the bill – strange texture, strange flavor.

I’d like to end the post on a positive note (before I scamper off for milk) so look at what my mommy sent me today:


I have the zoo set of these and I grin with joy every time I see them!  Look at the adorable oinker!


What is your favorite office supply?  As much as I adore these bands, I’ll go with Sharpies 🙂
