Sometimes stuff just STINKS.

Yesterday I was bugged at:
  • boys
  • traffic
  • staying at work too long and getting too little done
  • being hungry
Today I am bugged at:
  • my crappy lesson plan for today
  • hitting the snooze button too many times
  • snotty students who won't stay on task in class
BUT - I saw my aunt as Aunt Martha in "Arsenic and Old Lace" last night, and she was FABULOUS, just like I knew she would be. And there ARE tasks in my life that ARE getting done. And my first payment for my trip to France this summer is due, which means I am REALLY GOING!

So I guess I can keep on just keepin' on for a little while longer. :P

yay! It probably feels more like you're really going now, huh?

I have a five year old who refused to stay on task today, and it was frustrating because I can't be annoyed at her because I have her for the rest of the day and for eternity, too. :)

did you throw chalk? Did you?

I did NOT throw chalk.

I DID throw a girl out of class, and I ALMOST threw a mini-whiteboard across the room, but I did NOT throw chalk. :)

good :) They must have been really annoying to get your dander up like that. Last sunday, I had to not give out stickers because they weren't good, and one girl sobbed. I felt really bad, but not too bad. Cuz she was totally the one who was out of her seat the most.

Sigh. Kids.

You can do it Margaret! Rah rah rah!

Rah rah to Nosurf as well on witholding the stickers! I frown at teachers who create a reward and still give it even if the reward isn't earned.
