Today I was sooooo glad that I got to take my half day off, as my Christmas present from our principal! I went to Hobby Lobby and got to get lots of cute stuff that was 50% off! I got a cute snowman, and then super cute wrapping paper, bows, and bags! I LOVE Hobby Lobby and I sure love a sale! :0)
After I did some errands, I went to Shannon Elementary to see one of my old students, Sydney. She was moved to the new school this year, so I don't get to see her like I do my old students. I went with her mom, Kim (who's an aide at Shannon) down to Sydney's classroom to surprise her. It was so funny! She and two other girls who used to go to Springer, when they saw me, started screaming "Miss Snodgrass!!", got up, ran over and practically attacked me! It was so good to see them. I hung out with Sydney and her mom for a while, and it was just like always. Sometime during the Christmas break, I'm going to take Sydney and we're gonna have a "girl's day"! She kept begging her mom to let her go home with me today! :0)
I also got several ego boosts today/ this week! When I was at Shannon today, I was in the office and there was a girl who was probably in 3rd or 4th grade, and she came over to me and Sydney and started talking to us. She asked who I was and Sydney told her that I was her teacher, and the girl asked me what my name was, and I told her "Ms. Snodgrass" and she said "you look really young! You look like you're 16!" I just laughed and said "thanks!" Kim was introducing me to some of the staff at Shannon and told them that I was a teacher at Springer, and they were like "you're so young!". I always say, "yes, I know. I'm the youngest at my school!"
Also this week at school, since the weather has been super humid/rainy/wet, I've worn my hair curly~if I didn't it would be FRIZ city! I'm not kidding when I say that almost everyone (kids AND teachers) have commented on how much they love my hair and how beautiful it looks! I'm finding this really funny and ironic, but loving it none the less! I was in an ARD meeting on Monday and even one of the ladies that works in the Rockwall district (very important), commented on my hair and how much she liked it! I thought "wow..maybe I need to keep this up!" It's funny how a little thing like how you style your hair can make your week! ;0)
After I went and visited Sydney, I came back home and decided to take a nap, because I was really tired and had a headache. I slept for over 3 hrs! It was so nice...so was the dream I had! ;0) I dreamed about meeting this really cute guy at a store that I was shopping at. He evidently worked there with his family, and when I was trying to check out, he talked to me and was telling me not to go out with this other guy who had evidently been checking me out, who he said wasn't a good guy! I was like ok, thanks, and tried to leave. The cute guy kept thinking of an excuse to keep me coming back and not letting me leave. He finally asked for my phone number and asked me out. He also introduced me to his mom who was really nice (random?). Then he wrote his name and number on a piece of paper. In my dream I looked at the piece of paper and then I woke up. The last thing that I remember that he had written that his name was Sloan Young. He also had nice handwriting..I was impressed! I think this is really random because normally I'll have dreams where guys have names, but normally I only remember a first, or a last name..never the whole name. So, anybody know a sinlge guy named Sloan Young?!
I wonder if that dream has any significant meaning. If only I had seen his phone number too.
