Against All Odds

October 26th, 2011 at 08:02 pm

I was almost convinced today would be disaster filled.
I didn't finish DD's Halloween costume until 10 last night, hadn't copied my midterm exams, didn't buy enough Fruit Gushers for the classroom party, and had to be in the classroom with exams in hand at 8--after accomplishing all the rest of that.

Yet it all worked. Everything that could go wrong instead went right. We were in and out of the grocery store in two minutes, DD's costume was a huge success, DD at before-school care in time, and I picked the one working copier at 7:45. I was in such a surprised and good mood that I e-mailed my slacker student who hadn't shown up for the exam and let him take it during my office hours. He's a mess; a nice boy who is just not mature enough for school. And he was completely freaked out I let him take the exam. It seemed like I owed the karma account a deposit or two!

On the financial front, my inside source at the "fancy" grocery store, a current student, confessed her store was ending their loss-leader specials next week. I ran in there on the way to DD's costume parade and bought 12# of ground beef (super lean and just ground) for $1.49/lb. I probably should have bought a lottery ticket!
