Lazy Lazy Julie

Needs to upload pics.
There are loads of pics on my camera and phone.
They are upstairs.
I am downstairs.
I'm really that lazy today.
Kind of.
I'm sitting in the corner of the playroom typing waiting for Izzy to fall asleep.
This is day 5 of her missing school.
Poor thing had the flu and pneumonia.
She wants me close.
I want her to fall asleep.
I'm bored and have plenty to say, so I'm sitting here in the corner blogging.

Having her home sick has helped with missing school.
It's given me a purpose.
My little brain is still rolling with art ideas.
I guess I'll be making them with Izzy instead of the 400 kids I was teaching.
Sofi and Linnea don't like making stuff.
Carl's beyond making stuff with me.
So Izzy and I will be happily creating when she gets better.

I dropped Sofi off at school this morning and the tears were flowing.
Mine, not hers.
After she left the car.
I really loved what I was doing.
The reading.
Then the art.
What an absolute blast I had.
The interaction with kids.
Planning of lessons.
Seeing the racks fill with their artwork each day.
Hard to have it all come to a screeching halt with the end of the second leave I was filling.

I'm hoping to do some day to day subbing once Izzy is better.

In the meantime there is loads to do here.
More cleaning.
Now that the living room is painted (woo hoo!) everything else looks a little dingy.

She's finally asleep.
The purr of the vaporizer and the clicking of my keyboard did the trick.
Off to clean.


  1. Cleaning will never have the same satisfaction as teaching art. But at least you'll know how to remove sharpie from your couch!

  2. I blubbered like a baby the day I had to leave. I broke down 3 times! Luckily I was able to hold it together in front of the principal when I had to turn in my key. You are a teacher at heart!

  3. i have a feeling that there may be a more permanent teaching position in your future!! hat that izzi is ill, so much going around and we have our fair share, too. i be the kids at school miss you a ton Julie!! hugs, cathy
