First Week Fatigue

September 6th, 2013 at 07:02 pm

We're all dragging around here after the first week of school. Does everybody get worn out like this?

But I had a cheap and very nice day. Next week is my birthday and a friend took me out for lunch at my favorite tapas spot. While she paid for lunch, I have a loyalty card there, and have now earned a $25 bonus.

On the other cheapskate front, we got a free rotisserie chicken at the grocery store today with a coupon as well as a free Bird's Eye Voila meal. We won both in the supermarket's latest inane game. But free food is good and we had the chicken for dinner.

Now, back to reading my students' introduction assignments. Looks like I have some real corkers this semester.

    My kid did contract first week fatigue. He'd rather lug his backpack around his floor all day than use a locker though, and he's starting puberty and barely eats, so he does get worn out. I get worn out trying to get him to do his homework. I expect him to have Popeye arms by June.

    Corker I think is another word for character.

    The first week and a half of school brought an awful cold home to our home with the youngest and has now been contracted by all of us! Not a fun way to start things off.
