On the second day of school, the students got dismissed due to air quality control issues... aka... MOLD.
On the third day of school, I got a 5:43am phone call informing us the entire district would be closed. Hours later we got another call telling us school would be closed Thursday too.
What a way to start the school year!
Yes, we will have to make up these days... which is why I don't feel bad about sharing with you what I did on this surprise day off. I may as well make the most of it, right!?
After a stinky run (trash day in my hood), I went to hang out with Katrina at her pool. Katrina teaches phys ed at our school and we have become pretty good friends over all these years working together.
Let's drink to mold!
Paul was there too but he didn't want to blind you with his pasty whiteness!
We don't go out to eat much, let alone on a weekday, but we decided to splurge that evening and have sushi.
The one bad thing about sushi is that it doesn't matter how many times I wash my hands, they still smell like sushi for the rest of the night.
When we got home, Paul and I watched some TV. Look at my little baby! He looks a little concerned in this photo.
You see I am drinking a diet soda. I am DEEP in a diet soda hole right now. For some reason, I decided to buy a bunch of 12 packs and now all I do is just drink diet soda all day long. I can't stop! I don't want to stop! But I want to want to stop... if that makes sense.
The good part about having off tomorrow is that I can take Paul to his doctor appointments in Baltimore. He has been doing monthly rounds of chemo pretty much all through spring and summer. Tomorrow he gets an MRI and meets with his doctor to see if things are going well. I feel like they are. He doesn't have as many symptoms as he did before.
I'm gonna wrap this up so I can go stir up my Blizzard before we watch Big Brother. That's right, we went to DQ. Don't hate.
This is the song we like to blast on the way home from DQ...
Do you like Mika?
What's your favorite Blizzard flavor?
What do you like to do on a surprise day off?
