Plan A and Plan BPosted: March 14, 2010
As I write this the working week stretches out in front of me as a blank slate. I have no days of work lined up as yet and I don’t really know what will be happening. However I have to plan a few days in advance so that I get things done and I stay in touch with people or else I can end up at home doing not much at all.
So, Plan A for tomorrow is working if I get a call in the morning. Plan B is taking the boys to school, helping in Eric’s classroom and then making an appearance at the gym hopefully not causing any heart attacks amongst the staff seeing as how they haven’t seen me for so long. I also predict some ironing and “finishing” work on two different knitting projects. I’d like to get dinner done ahead of time because Dan is having a swimming lesson but I’ll have to see what is happening. I’ve also got two after school “coffee dates” organised with colleagues during the week and book club on Friday night for which I gave myself a night off from Little Athletics.
(Just as side note, there is another good reason for not appearing at Little Athletics on Friday night. Master 6 disgraced himself yesterday afternoon by “mooning” the Under 7 girls while they were together waiting for an event. Maybe a night off will give people more time to forget! It is Centre Championship weekend so I will be there on Saturday afternoon anyway. We have laughed a lot at D’s antics but there have also been some stern words about what is acceptable in mixed (or any) company!)
If I don’t work on the other days I’m going to go around and deliver some more “relief teacher” letters to local schools. I’m also searching the job sites each day for any new prospects because I’d much rather have weeks that are planned to be full of action rather than facing the great unknown every Sunday night.
