I'm feeling it today.
1. Thank you fall activities. It would be easier to write down who is in class, rather than who is absent. When 13 out of 19 are missing in one class, it is bordering on ridiculous. Tennis, volleyball, cross country, FFA, and journalism have all been snagging my students. I have one student who I have only seen once in 8 days. (Can his parents send a picture to remind me what he looks like?)
2. And then thank you to the "darling" student who came into my room after school and gave me some snotty attitude about makeup work. Come to find out, she hadn't picked up her makeup work information sheet out of her folder. I guess she thinks I put those in there because they are so much fun to do. And she wonders why I get frustrated when the information she needed was still on the board AND in her folder. When so many students are missing, I cover my bases in terms of making sure the work comes in. Now it would be nice, if the students would return the favor... politely! I'm thinking that my classes might be having a chat about that today-- with me doing the chatting!
3. A huge thank you goes out to the 325mg aspirin I take each day. I bruise like a peach! Add in moving K and CT this past weekend, and my body looks like it is trying to imitate camouflage. Did I mention that my dress for the wedding next week is sleeveless? I'm hoping these bruises fade fast, or I may have to invest in body makeup! (I guess I should be thankful that the aspirin is doing its job.)
And today is only Thursday?? It's Homecoming week. It seems like it has been a month since Monday. *sigh* And I have enough to do that could fill a month. You can triple that sigh.
I'm going to my happy place. Repeat after me, "It's Friday Eve. It's Friday Eve."
