My morning has been chock full 'o surprises.
The other day I bought two bookshelves at Staples. They were so cheap I couldn't resist--tall, 5 shelf ones for $25 a piece. I drug the boxes into my classroom, but I didn't have the energy to put them together, so I left them propped up against the wall.
I felt all tired and grumpy this morning as I unlocked my classroom door. I entered and turned on one of my lamps and looked up to see my bookcases, both my bookcases, put together and standing against the far wall. Somebody came and put my bookcases together! No one has fessed up yet, but I'm on the case. Soon, I will find my fairy god-friend, and chocolates will be in order.
Then, I was worried because today is the first day of sentence diagramming with my 9th graders. I really thought they were going to whine and possibly revolt--possibly because I'm sure that's what I'd do if someone tried to make me diagram. But, they loved it! Really, really loved it. Like, I have a list of who gets to diagram tomorrow because I ran out of exercises for all the people who were chomping at the bit today.
Wonders never cease.
