Day 9 of 31 #SOL16

Today was one of those days that was just a little too eventful. I had my formal observation today. Of all the times of the year to get observed I happen to be smack in the middle of my mandatory test prep. The least favorite part of my job. Something I have the least amount of passion for and feel sick about doing. Yes, that is what he came to see. At least, I have the many years of prior observations where I did display characteristics of good teaching and passion on my side. Ugh.
Then I got home. I had already prepped dinner and just had to put it in the over but, unfortunately, I needed garlic bread. Ah, no big deal I'll just run to the store. I grabbed my purse and headed out to only moments later hit a deer and then realize I had forgotten my phone. However, as luck would have it a "Large Animal Veterinarian" just happened to be passing through. He not only let me use his phone he moved the deer, which was still alive and flailing in the middle of the road. While I was on the phone, the deer got up, looked at us and then ran off. Okay...whatever! Glad you're fine.
Alright, so I eventually got the bread. While my family ate I talked to the insurance company and all seemed okay.
Bedtime comes along and I hear the words, "Mom, I need the bucket!" Yeah. You know what I'm about to say. Sure enough, now I have a sick kid to top off the day. Really? She just got over a stomach bug about two weeks ago. Do we need to do this again?
Bah, whatever. That's about all I got at this point. None of it really matters. Everybody made it through the day and the only one with a scratch is that deer and my bumper. I suppose eventful or not it's all okay.


  1. Oh my! What a day! What are the odds that a large animal vet would happen to be passing by as you hit a deer?? Life is funny!! Or maybe not!

  2. I love the part where the deer got up and ran off! Couldn't help myself I was laughing. Sometimes those kind of days just can't end fast enough.

  3. Wow! What a day! Multiple slices here! Hope tomorrow brings you peace and uneventfulness.

  4. Oh no! Sorry my friend! We have one with a bucket tonight too. I'm shocked really. Usually the puke begins in the middle of the night. We got a couple hour jump on it tonight! The dogs made another mess in the house today as well. The little pumpkin at school went mute and wouldn't speak to me this afternoon, or work, or do anything at all but sit and stare at me. Yeah. It must be the day for it. Hopefully tomorrow will be better!

  5. Oh my gosh, Betsy! If you ask Jen Johnson, she would tell you that you parked in the third spot from right. It seems that some bad days, just get worse. Maybe you got it all that bad karma out in one day. I could totally hear your voice in your piece today:)

  6. Yikes, I'm glad that you weren't injured when you hit the deer. It seems like the deer wasn't too injured either. Sorry you have a sick child. Never fun! Hoping for a better day for you tomorrow.
