Update: Purse has been found! Hallelujah!
Okay, so I wasn’t feeling that deprived by the time I got going yesterday. The weather was truly awful: pelting rain, wind gusts over 30 mph. On my way into work a few traffic lights were out, making for interesting driving. My students presented their multimedia projects first thing and they were really fun to watch. It was a great way to start the day. Then we shifted into the topic for the day when the lights went out. No power in a computer-oriented lesson is a bad thing. We spent a while discussing Google and search and I was just about to give up, when the power came back on and we were able to continue. A good thing, because I didn’t want to get too behind. The rest of the class went well, for the most part. By the time I was done, I was feeling pretty energized. I grabbed lunch and waited to go to my students’ mock lessons where I had to play, first, a 10th grade student, and next, an 8th grade student. It was fun. I admire my students for getting up in front of the class with us behaving not so well. The weather was still blustery when I started to head out. As I was doing my mental check, I realized I didn’t have my purse. I headed back into the classroom. No purse. I remembered having it in the bathroom and decided I must have left it there. Back to the bathroom. No purse. Next stop, a couple of offices where the purse might have been turned in. One office. No purse. The other office. No one there. Next stop. Security. No purse. They sent me to another building to look. Building requires ID to get in. No ID.
I blame lack of sleep. I haven’t left my purse anywhere in over 20 years. And then, it was stolen, so not really my fault. So, add to my list of crazy things I have to do today canceling all my stuff, arranging for new ID and all that jazz.
On the plus side, I have a couple of projects that are gearing up, one new, one that was on hold, but which I’m ready to dive into again, and then I got another possibility that when I have time probably tomorrow, I’m going to check into. I also have been handed a very fun thing that will happen on Thursday that I’ll tell you all about as soon as it’s done. Also, I have a conference to attend this weekend that I’m also looking forward to. So I went from not wanting to do housework to not having time to do housework. Life is truly an interesting thing.
