Somedays no matter what you do and how long you hold your positive attitude, it just stinks. Well, that was today.
Long day it started at 6:45, meeting in my classroom at 7. (Interesting stuff, just early)
Students were extremely hyper and chatty today. By 2:40 I bubbled over, angry.
My anger usually bring tears, which makes me more angry. Never show weakness to the kids, well that all went out the window. (dang PMS hormones, TMI, I know)
3:15 found out our new report card was not working properly and all the grades we entered had to be changed.
Thank heavens Kayla's soccer game got canceled (a small blessing in the chaos)
6:00 I walked out of my classroom after fixing 5 weeks of grades to be able to compute the "old" way.
Highlight of the day: we tried the new Chinese place in town, the Lotus. Yum. Swiss Cake rolls for dessert because you can't end a rotten day with out comfort food.
Once I've been home and put up my feet and read that some of you have had great day and some not so great; I feel better. Almost ready to go back and work hard again.
I hope I haven't lost all the hard work I've done so far by letting the tears go. We shall see. I think I might take the weekend completly off and just rest, get my house back in order, and enjoy my kids in their formal attire for homecoming. Goal: focus on the positive....
