First off, I would like to say that this post is going to be more of a personal post and it is dedicated to my good friend Jaymee Zeller because she insists that I have to write posts about my life. I know that this needs a separate category, which I currently do not know how to do, but after my wordpress date with Janelle, I will know how to do everything.
So, I started my day off with a wonderful 2 hour and 15 min drive to Beverly Hills. I love when it rains in LA! Not. Actually, I did used to love the rain… Anyway, so I leave my house at 6:15, get to work at 8:30. Then its time to head to Virginia Rd. Elementary for Healthy Habits for Kids (the nutrition curriculum that I teach). Well, today traveling to the school was a daunting task since its pouring rain and I have to bring A LOT of supplies with me. I wheel around this rolley cart that has all my food supplies, materials, and lesson plans etc. Since the streets of Bev. Hills are flooded today I have to carry my cart, and lemme tell ya, this is no easy task considering I’m also carrying my purse, umbrella, and coffee cup.
So by the time I get to my car I’m soaking wet because I can’t properly hold my umbrella when I’m lifting my 30 pound cart. (ok, so I have no idea how much it weighs, but I’m a strong girl and its hard). Anyway, I’m driving out of the parking lot, and I can barely see because my glasses are soo fogged up and I’m so freaking hot because I’m rushing and wearing layers and I’m stressed. So I’m driving, I can’t really see, cars are honking. Not to sure why. Turns out I was in the middle of two lanes. Hahah. Fabulous.
Alright, on to lunch time. This is when my day gets REALLY good. I swing by taco bell before I go to my school. So, I’m already having some serious guilt about eating at taco bell before I teach my lessons, but I was so hungry and I’m in a “food dessert” as they like to call it and TB is my only option. I order my bean n cheese burrito, pay for it, and leave. YEP, I left without getting my food. Great. Whatever, I just go to my school hungry, all my papers are wet, and I forgot to bring the food allergy forms again! Ahhh!!!!!! Peanut allergies are no joke in elementary schools. So I get to school, I look like a mess and the children greet me with “Ms. Mason, you look different, whats wrong with your hair?” Apparently they are not into the Jew fro this weather has given me.
After I teach I go back to my office. I decided to park on the street because its closer than my assigned parking that I have to pay for. Bad Idea. I got a $60 parking ticket. Just what I needed! Anyway, that was my day. How was yours? I hope it was better than mine. Ha! Also, yay or nay or personal stories? Tell me the truth because I can personally write Jaymee a letter if you would rather hear about nutrition and I love posting about nut.
* Note, I love Jews, especially considering aprox. 3/5 of my best friends are Jews and I was Jewish for a while in high school and college.
