It's raining legos

Do you ever have one of those Tuesdays that feels like a Monday?

Pick me! Pick me! I have them quite frequently. Today was one of those days.

After staying up well past midnight to watch another piss poor steelers performance, I was exhausted today (alright, the game was necessarily terrible, but we got the ball about a kajillion times and couldn't actually score until the last 12 seconds of the game? I realize the conditions were bad and the entire thing resembled a game of extreme drunk slip and slide, but if i'm going to stay up past midnight on a school night, i'd like a little more action; i.e., scoring, touchdowns, field goals).

Anyways, I begrudgingly got out of bed, plastered on a smile and headed into work this morning. Things didn't really get any better. Within 30 seconds of the buses pulling away from the school, we had to deal with a fight. A fight that lasted most of the morning and well into the afternoon.

By three o'clock, I was trapped in the principals office with one of my kids who proceeded to melt down over the fact that everyone was out to get him and trying to frame him. Mind you, the actual fight ended about 6 hours ago. Fast forward to 3:15 and it's raining legos in the office. Glass was punched, four chairs were kicked across the room, desks were thrown- among other items. All the while i'm sitting there trying to ignore the entire event while working on a 504 plan. It's more difficult than one might think to write a 504 plan when there are legos stuck in your hair and flying down your shirt.

You better believe that when the clock struck 3:59:59, my coat was on, my bags were packed and I was out the door. There are some definite perks to being in three different schools. I have 6 days before i'm due back to the land of flying legos.
