It has been such a crazy week already. I asked where the pizza was at lunch today (pizza is the staple of Thursday lunch)-they looked at me with very quizzical looks as they said- "um....it's Wednesday". That's how long it feels like this week has been already!
We have progress reports coming up-- grading to catch up on. It seems like meeting after meeting. I'm trying to prepare activities for tonight's literacy night, tomorrow's parent meeting, Saturday's Poetry Club. Attended a community meeting about budget cuts after school where everyone complained, but no one had any solutions. I went home in such a bad mood yesterday.
Today didn't start any better, my soda exploded in the back seat of the car this morning (I was honestly glad to be alive, because for a minute I thought I had gotten shot-couldn't figure out what would make that sound and then get liquid everywhere!). I came in early to try to get a head start-the copy room was still locked, I asked a custodian to open it, waited and waited-it gets open and what do you know-out of service.
Ugh-I feel like Alexander in the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day (though for me it's been this whole week!).
First thing this morning, this is what my kids decided to spell in their spelling workstation:
Kind of puts it all into perspective, doesn't it? Makes it all worth it!
