Dinner stops

- Subbed severely handicapped kids at my mom's school
- Ran into my mom as I was helping the kids out to the busses and she said she had to talk to me. She is being transferred. Again. Weeks after she was told it was rescinded.
- Comforted her
- Got a text from Mike who had just gotten home from his meetings inviting me over
- Head to his place and we watch Oprah
- We go to Victoria Gardens to Harry's Pacific Grill since we heard they had a good Happy Hour. It was a sad hour. Limited happy hour menu and the margarita was not enough to kill stress from the day. It was too small. We ended up with the tuna tartare and bbq potato chips, which was like a bag of warmed up potato chips
- I suggest we work our way down the mall to the other seafood restaurant
- We get in the car and Mike says the steakhouse we like
- Sit next to a high maintenance couple then make fun of them with the waitress
- We order the bruschetta and oysters, then the grand marnier souffle, which was sooooooooooooooooooooooo good
- Mike agreed the grand marnier was better than the chocolate one - I think we are both more white chocolate fans, and it was my suggestion... hehehe
- At dinner Mike asks me what I want for graduation and suggests something really extravagant that I won't elaborate on so I won't jinx myself, but it is something that is at the top of my list of things to do in my life, and I can think of no better person to do it with. When he suggested this it was as if I couldn't believe I was hearing it, then he said it again, and WOW, well, it would be pretty sweet
- Stop at Kohls for his electric toothbrush, instead find sunglasses for me for the convertible
- Go to Target where I get a henley shirt on clearance and he gets household products
- Back to his place where we watch Oprah Behind the Scenes
- Bed about 10:30 and I'm wide awake... it is 2am before I fall asleep

- We sleep until 10 even though his alarm goes off at 7:30 and 9
- We take turns showering
- I get a call to sub for 5th grade and head to that
- The kids went on a field trip to the park with the other 5th grade teachers
- Their teacher was in a bind and her masters thesis professor said she had to have her thesis in completed by 5pm or else leaving her no choice but to take off early
- Dinner with a bunch of teachers from school... it was nearly a 5 hour dinner since we talked and talked and talked, but it was so necessary... everyone is having issues with administration, district officials, and it is every teacher for himself/herself
- Helped my mom scan documents on my printer so that she could apply for 2 jobs in other districts. Risky move to leave the district she is in, but it is also a risk for her to stay where she is.

FRIDAY... a look ahead
- Subbing?
- Meeting my cousin to give her tickets to my sister's graduation
- Hanging out with Mike

- Meeting my cousin from Oklahoma with the family for lunch at the casino buffet

- Graduation and graduation dinner

- Masters presentation - I get to present my masters
- Order final transcripts

- Dinner with Gonzo. I need to remember to text her.

- Appointment for invisalign retainers

- Shopping for my mom's birthday

Mike: I'm going to guess it's another trip, this time abroad, as in outside the U.S. You'll tell us when you are ready.
