You too can turn yourself into a hockey player. Just go to www.photofunia.com. Yes, when you should be doing something else, but you are too brain dead to do it - play around on the Internet and then write a random blog post.
It's been two days with students and I am not yet feeling organized at school. Tomorrow we're going to the library so they can browse through the stacks and also so we can have an occasional fifteen-minute read during the class period. I am ready to start inviting them to jazz up their journals and release all their brilliance on the page! I wish we could fast forward to the middle of the trimester, so all the kids were comfortable and relaxed. We'll get there and I will start to calm down and find my groove. Do you like my new toothbrush? It was on sale at the grocery store.
Next year, I am not planting yellow squash. For heaven's sake! I don't like them that much! Every time I go out to the garden there are MORE and if I don't pick them they get weird and BIG! Now that I've sort of lost interest in the garden, everything is looking BIGGER and BETTER!
When the seasons are about to change do you ever get kind of spacey and unsettled? I think I do. I have a million things on my mind and the "I don't have enough time" voice won't be quiet. I'm reminded to surrender, wave the white flag, and shout, "HELP! I can't do ANYTHING alone!" I'm glad HE is listening.
