I didn’t iron today; I thought I would. After lunch I got ready to go to the post office and Mini-Cash. As I closed the padlock, I realized I did not have the key. I luckily overheard Mrs. Garaway this morning tell my neighbors that she was going to Roseau.
Instead of walking to LaGrange for nothing, I went to Frances’s house. I called to see if Mrs. Garaway returned. I decided to have Maryann send my extra key up after a few minutes of waiting. I’m glad I had a copy of my key made when I was in Erie. As it turned out Mrs. Garaway didn’t return tonight. Elaine took the key to a bus driver at the West bridge in Roseau; the driver dropped the key off at Nurse Dubique’s at about 5:30 p.m.
After I got into the apartment I gave Frances the extra key. I enjoyed the diversion for the day. I talked with Frances and watched a video.
I was in Roseau for the whole weekend last week. I arrived on Friday (27) to find out my doctor appointment was canceled. Gabriella called the school at 8am but no one answered the phone. I don’t remember if we had assembly, but surely someone in the staff room heard the phone ring. The probable reason why no one answered was that the secretary wasn’t in and everyone was probably offended by the rules that were read at the beginning of the year. Supposedly we are not allowed to go into her office. The door between the staff room and her office was supposed to be locked. So far none of it has been enforced.
Speaking of enforcement I got put in charge of keeping track of merits and demerits today. Diane Angol, who normally does this, is leaving. It will be easy to do if the computer arrives. It’s only fair that I got the job. I have “a reputation” for giving the most demerits. I don’t think it is so true this year. I feel that my strong stand early this year will have a ripple effect of reminding the students to behave.
