Yes, it's another Friday Love List. Now with more backpedaling!
See, it occurred to me that it might look bad, my first work-related post of the school year having to do with a difficult student. Bob and I had a good day today. We've had plenty of them. As with almost every student I've ever had, even when he is making me insane, I can locate some genuine affection for him. Yes, there have been a few students (of literally hundreds) who I just entirely disliked, but for the most part, I love my kids. Even Bob.
Other things I currently love:
New season of Project Runway!
College t-shirt Fridays. Meaning that I get to wear jeans and tennis shoes. Especially key right now since my feet are not at all accustomed to all of the standing. Or really spending very much time in shoes that aren't flip flops. (Side note: do you think I could wear this t-shirt to work? It IS a college t-shirt.)
Eating lunch again in the special ed office. My coworkers crack me up.
Brunch. In fact, I love brunch so much that I am having it both days of this weekend. And when I asked Melissa where we should go on Sunday, she said, "Somewhere where they have mimosas." Oh heck yes. For the Vitamin C.
Brownies with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups baked into them. Holly invented this last weekend. They are exactly as good as you think they are.
Payday today, which is vastly more exciting when it only comes around once a month.
Real mail. Just the other day I got an actual envelope and stamp card from Kerri. And my friend Maureen occasionally sends me postcards made out of non-postcard stuff, which always make me smile.
Pomegranate vodka and 7-Up. Yum.
Sleep, glorious sleep. Speaking of which...
(Shhh...pretend I am sleeping now instead of watching the end of The Colbert Report. But don't forget to leave your list in the comments or post on your own blog and leave us the link.)
