Why does the beginning of the year have to be so hard?
I wish it was the middle of October.

By then my kids will know the classroom procedures and expectations.
They are getting there, but it is a (slow) work in progress.

I am exhausted.
So glad tomorrow is Friday and a long weekend.

Summer is in the distant past .

I love my kitties . They help me keep my sanity.

Why is my neighbor running an extremely loud vacuum outside at 8:30 at night

No school tomorrow!!! I get a 6 day weekend!!! I was already scheduled to be off Tuesday because we are going to a football game in Atlanta Monday night. Out today and just got the call that we are also out tomorrow for flooding. Yea, me!!!

DH is not helping to get ready for this house inspection he initiated. He is making me mad. I got more done while he was gone today!

We have discovered a few new leaks. Not exactly what you want to discover before the home inspector comes.

Go away rain. It could be worse. Praying for Texas!!!

Every time I get close to catching up there is a new meeting, new email, new student, new crisis, new to-do list item.

My parents are as needy, or more, than the students.

I haven't slept in my own bed in a month. It. Stinks.

I miss DH.

I'm sick of being screwed around on this house repair. Make up your mind, tell us what we need done, and let us do it. Had you told us you needed everything moved out TWO WEEKS ago, we might actually be home by now. I'm so angry.

I want to go home.

I am going to complain to the medical group about their lack of follow through. When the PA left, none of my records were transferred back to the doctor. I reordered my Xanax a couple of days ago. I picked it up about 20 minutes ago after calling the pharmacy to have them the request to the doctor several hours ago. I then called the doctor's office after I called the pharmacy to ask if they had gotten the request. Yes they had. This was 5 hours ago. Just got the email about 45 minutes ago telling me they finally got the prescription and it was filled. There is no sense to that. All someone has to do when the pharmacy faxes the info is to go online (they fax online), check the patient's records, then get the blanket blank thing to the doctor.

Sorry about the rant. Guess who really didn't sleep last night.

Kathy

I had a good conversation with a friend today .She is leaving our school for a better opportunity. I will miss her great attitude and our conversations.

I am going to get the rules changed on the sunshine committee to reflect some special moments in an older teacher's life as well.

I am experimenting with TPT and put a free product on there at the suggestion of a friend. I have loved learning about tech these past few years

Still on the job hunt.

Instead of a Negative Thought Jar, I do the negative thought exercise routine. 10 crossovers, jumping jacks or my attempt at pushups.

At least I can get the condo clean because I still have some hope I'll get hired this year.

I wasn't a bad teacher, I was in a bad place and needed to get out.

I will emerge stronger than ever.

Residency is in two weeks!!!

With all this free time, relearning how to do resources for teachers pay teachers shall keep me occupied.

Someone will hire me, I'm sure of it!!!

People really want to be helpful. Today we were beneficiaries of so much kindness: DH's caregiver, AAA operator, 2 tow truck guys, mechanic, neighbor. I guess it's pretty obvious DH is quite ill--the tow truck driver insisted on giving him an icy cold bottle of water in our heat wave.

However, I made an appointment with our ridiculous trash company 2 weeks ago to haul away an old BBQ today--for an extra $50. Did they show up? Nope.

  • I'm not psychic. Tell me if your child has issues.
  • How can an 18 pound dog take up an entire king bed?
  • I'm on the sh!t list in the cafeteria. Not the first time. Probably won't be the last.
  • We are getting torrential rains and gusty winds over the weekend.

Worried about hurricane Irma.

I hate smoke. That's all we have. Tons. Yuck. No fun.

I just turned 50. What an ugly old sounding number. But I choose to do something bigger than the no. Not sure what yet.

My feet hurt

Blah!!!! My feet hurt. My sinuses are inflamed from smoke in the air. I screwed up a lesson. I forgot to thank a friend. My cat is 8 months overdue on shots and the vet keeps telling me she is "on the list". Yep...time to go to a different vet. I didn't grade the papers yet.

Yah!!!! I get to go away for the weekend with DH and no kids. Restaurants, hotel, good friends, and fun activities. Suitcase packed. Laundry done, dishes done. Not stressing about screwed up lesson. Excited about new friendship. My students are adorable and hard working.

Thanks

Change is hard.

I hate conflict.

Change is hard.

New position with new job description, forcing some changes at a new school.

Did I mention, change is hard!

SO glad we have a four day weekend, even if I will be spending at least one day at work.

Everything SleepEatTeach said except that part about the vacuum

Ah, man! I missed this yesterday because I went to bed so early!

First week back to school after my surgery. School has been in session for over two weeks already. This week was clean up/catch up week after having a sub.

My knee ached all week. I couldn't stand, sit, or walk for long or very far. I came home exhausted each day. Teaching is hard work when a person is healthy. Teaching with a healing knee (total knee replacement) is torture!

I still don't sleep well which makes me even crankier!

I'm so beyond happy it's Friday.

I can't wait to get a solid schedule.

I love working with Kindergarten.

I am a hunting widow this week.

Tonight the Tigers play...go Tigers!

It's still hot outside and I'm ready for sweaters and gloves...but not deep snow.

It's Friday!
