So we'll start with Jessica. She woke up feeling not so great, especially since she received the bad news that the forecast for the next week includes a ton of rain. To cheer herself up a bit she decided to get a haircut. Unfortunately, the haircut was not a success. She now has wings above her ears. Sorry, Jessica! We still think you are beautiful!
Sarah isn't completely happy with her job, but she handles it quite well most of the time. Today was especially bad. Without going into the details or naming names, she actually said she would rather work at Wal-Mart than continue to work there under certain circumstances. Now you know that's bad.
Well, technically my day wasn't horribly worse than any other day, until you consider my normal day and stick me outside for a couple of hours with first graders who continually fight and argue. Then add in some competitive team games and you've got a headache and a sunburn to top it off. And I think my middle toe is broken and my little toe is definitely sprained!
Now, Jeni had quite the "near" death experience. This morning she was busily working on stuff for school for me. She noticed the helicopters flying around. Helicopters really aren't an unusual sound around our house. They are constantly flying above us and are very noisy. Around 10:30 AM she decides to go for a run and the helicopters are still circling the neighborhood. So she runs over a mile from home when a car pulls up next to her. Don't fret, no one wanted to abduct her. The woman leaned out of her car and said, "I don't know if you know, but those helicopters are looking for a mountain lion." Jeni asked if the woman could possibly drive her to the public library just around the corner - past the unsafe street the mountain lion was last spotted on. Keep in mind that she has been running in her skimpy outfit and is all sweaty. She sat in the magazine section of the library, trying to look inconspicuous. Until a young man came and sat next to her and she decided she better leave. She'd only been there for about 10 minutes. Then she ran as fast as she could the rest of the way home - about 1.5 miles. Lucky, she did not become a mountain lion's brunch today. Phew!
Needless to say, we all should have stayed in bed!
