Since so many of you were calling me and emailing me and sending me messages wondering what happened to me...
School started yesterday. My kids are nutty but nothing like last year (so far). I've already called 6 parents and laid the smack down on a few more (kids, not parents). I had a "short" meeting yesterday that was nearly 4 hours: everyone wants me to solve their problems for them, because I'm apparently the person who knows how to do everything-----and our fearless leader is, ironically, "out of the loop" in his words. Nice. :rollseyes:
After the meeting I had to get my room ready for kids coming to class today, so i was at school until about 10. Plus and hour drive home. Then an hour drive back for a meeting at 7am this morning. Have I mentioned that despite being here all last week, I was totally in denial about school starting and me like having to TEACH until yesterday... my classroom is a total wreck! I'm still at school now.
I got some knitpicks yarn today, according to my husband. Have I had time to knit? Do I forsee "free time" in the future? Have I even checked in on my coursework?
Worse, all the sitting at my computer made me gain 2 more pounds!
I'm going the wrong way!!!!
AND THERE IS A FREAKING FLY IN MY CLASSROOM THAT WON'T GO AWAY AND I CAN'T KILL. HOW DO FLIES GET INTO A ROOM IN THE BASEMENT WITH NO WINDOWS????????????????????????
WHY DO 8TH GRADE FOOTBALL PLAYERS LIKE ME SO MUCH THEY FEEL THE NEED TO HUG ME AFTER PRACTICE???????????
WHY DOES AUNT FLO DECIDE TO VIST THE WEEK THAT SCHOOL STARTS??????????
WHY oh WHY WHY WHY AREN'T THERE 25 HOURS IN A DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Miss you all! I might get more done if i wasn't distracted by wanting to be on here all the time!
