This was one unplanned days. Garrett, my seven year old, missed the bus, so I drove him to school. The secretary told me they needed a substitute teacher, "How'd you like to teach P.E. all day? I was dressed for the part, in my sweatshirt and jeans, and had a full thermos of coffee in the car, so I said, "Yes."
I had a whistle, and was allowed to bark orders. Yay! For once I could command these kids to follow the rules, and they had to, or they were out, and they knew it. I informed the kids of the rules of Dodge Ball, reminded them if they stepped over the line, "You are out, until the next game," as I motioned with my hand. "If you hit the teacher; you are out. If you aim and hit someone in the head, you are out," and so on. I had power and authority. This was fun! I must have refereed 30 games in that one day. At the end of the day the kids wanted to know if I was coming back tomorrow, "Cause this was fun," they said.
After a day like that. The first thing I do is take out my contacts to rest my eyes. Since I've been gone all day, I put my hair up to get it out of the way and start a load of wash and straighten things up. Then I start dinner. I decided to show you how I really look most of the time at home. I rarely let you see me with glasses, yet I wear them 85 percent of the time. So here's the real me. I was exhausted after all those Dodge Ball games. I soaked in the tub and put my feet up. The kids cleaned the kitchen. It was a good day. Oh, and by the way, the top picture is of me standing next to "Pearl," my new (used) car. I love her. She's just right for me. I named her Pearl because of her black pearl color and for my blogging buddy Pearl of Pearl's Sentimental Journey. Have a lovely day today ladies. I found this verse this morning, "Thou will keep him in perfect peace, him whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusteth in Thee." Isaiah 26:3
