…had better be an improvement on this one. Somehow, I got sick (I’m blaming the kindergarten monsters), and I’ve been really busy with the start of school, a new kindergarten class, and my normal workload. At least I had payday at the beginning of the week!
And today… today, 2 out of 3 children got hurt in my kindergarten class, which is a frustrating and worrying occurrence. I reassured myself that the injuries were way below minor and that the class is all boys, but I still wish they’d behave better. On the bright side, the cook at Rong Fu is a wonderful woman who set aside a lunch box for me and will continue to do so until I don’t work there anymore. See, on Thursdays I have two sessions of Chinese, and this means I miss my free lunch, and if you know me at all, you know I am all about free. At least I got one thing at Rong Fu running smoothly.
Tomorrow is our first dragon boat race, and that at least will be very fun. The forecast shows rain, but we’ll already be soaked in the filthy Keelung River, so the rain will actually be an improvement. Unless I can wrangle my way out of being the flagcatcher in the first race, there’ll be a lot of pressure in that race, but if we make it to the next level, I’m absolutely pawning the task off onto one of the slackers who didn’t come to 2 or 3 practices. Do they really want my eyes, depth perception, and hand-eye coordination to be the determining factor in our success? Talk about building your house on a shaky foundation!
