The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme.
The new puppy, Cera, went to the vet last week. She was a hit with everyone there. She’d go up and sit in front of them with her he has very narrow nasal passages and has a reverse sneeze. They also think she is a Beagle. She is still having accidents in the house, and we think it is just to mark her territory and piss Baby off. She keeps pooping in Baby’s room and even on Baby’s huge bean bag. Ugh. She has started using the synthetic grass patch to pee on, so here’s to hoping!
Y’all! I about keeled over when I heard the news, even though after the second day back to work in August I called it. Last week our principal held a last-minute, unscheduled faculty meeting. I was at duty, which we never get relieved from (and always get the stink eye and nowhere to sit when we come in late to faculty meetings). By the time I was relieved, it was over. She announced she is retiring at the end of this school year in June. I have always had catty remarks in my observations from her, so I am hoping this year she will pass on this since she is not returning in the fall.
Our UIL were this week, so all the stress is now over! Tuesday we took our speaking students to their event, and the writing was graded. Saturday everyone else went for their competitions. There were some issues with scoring and following the UIL rules. The host school was not putting out all of the judging sheets for verification, and they also would put something out and not announce it until the window was closed so that when coordinators and coaches would go to verify, they were taking the judging sheets and tests away. Right before the awards, they called all the coordinators from the different schools in and basically had a “don’t blame us for the fuck-ups even though we had a UIL “guru” pulling the strings and really running the show” meeting. That was displeasing, but our kids took home at total of 39 awards! The 7th grade took home 3rd overall. Our kids were so well-behaved and mannered and I am so proud of all of them.

I finally started two new books!
I started this feature as part of my Sunday Posts in the fall. After being asked by a coworker – in all seriousness – if I had a life, I decided to join disc jockey Bobby Bones of Kase 101 in doing one human thing each week.
How does it work?
In order to not lose what little sanity I have left and in order to not become enslaved to the Texas Education Agency via my school district, I will…
- leave school within an hour of dismissal once a week
- go do one human thing with another human
- talk about my human thing on the blog each week
While I didn’t really have my human connection this week, I did spend all Tuesday afternoon and evening with my UIL speaking students and coaches. I left school on Wednesday and Thursday at 5:00 and I left on Friday at 4:30, so in all I still consider it a successful week.
This week the man sent me photos every once in a while of Baby and Cera. He has the best captions for each photo he sent me. These are a few of the better quality photos.
