Well! Let me tell you, my friends ... being a supporter of the bored gods pays off big time!
Today my principal came into my classroom during home room. He said, "Mrs. Johnson, your services to this school have been unappreciated for too long. Effective immediately, we are doubling your salary!"
My students stood and applauded. That's right, I got a standing ovation. One of the "mean girls" who sits right in front whispered, "It's about time, too!"
Bolstered by this good news, I quickly purchased a brand new gown for this year's Fairie Festival:
I think I'll look smashing in this.
Then I thought, "Whoa! I'm no longer leader of the Mountain Tribe! Spare will need a new fairy gown too!" So I bought her one.
I love how we'll be color-coordinated! (Don't tell her -- it's a surprise!)
After home room, the principal gave me the rest of the day off. So Mr. J and I drove down to Atlantic City. The conditions were perfect for collecting sea glass. Look what I found!
In my whole time communing with King Triton, I had only ever found three marbles before! Today I found four dozen! Aren't they stunning?
When I got home, I got a call from the animal shelter. They needed someone right away to foster a kitten.
I'm going to name her Kimba.
The Gods are good to me! I hope you all have the kind of day I had -- whew! I'm going to sleep well tonight!
