1. We'll get the sad news out of the way first...
We had to put our dog, Pedro, to sleep today. We've been in denial for a few months or so. After running many tests on him that always came back negative, the vet came to the conclusion that he basically had dementia. We rescued Pedro from the Humane Society 9 years ago, and they estimated him to be between 3-5 years old (although our vet said that was probably a low estimate). He lived a long life, but we are still very sad and will miss him very much :(
2. I had parent-teacher conferences last night. It makes for a long night, and while I always get those butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling, I love meeting with parents. Seriously, I do! I like to take the team approach when meeting with parents; we both truly want what's best for their child!
3. We had an inservice day today. It was nice because we got most of the day to work on what we wanted to... although I had a hard time staying focused (see #1) so my time wasn't as productive as I would have liked. We had to work 7 hours and the start time was flexible. So I arrived at 6:20, and while I could have left at 1:20, I actually stayed until about 2:30.... I always find just one more thing to do! But it was still nice to leave earlier than normal. I decided to wear my pink fuzzy slippers at school today. Everyone was jealous. As they should be :)
