Midweek Mutterings

We like alliteration, right? Another uneventful day without getting caught up. It seems every time I take two steps forward, I go three steps back. I get a few things accomplished and six more things pop up. I'm going to start making a list of all the things that I have to keep up with as a teacher. You'd probably be amazed. Tomorrow will be a nice day, I think. My interp & debate classes will have the next two days to work on tournament material. In comm. app we're going to play charades. (We're going over nonverbal communication.) Hopefully I can get caught up on grading and my multitude of other items on my ever-growing list.

I had to stay a little while after school to listen to a student perform. I'm only taking six to a tournament this weekend. All the other kids are going to band contest. Tomorrow I have choir rehearsal. We're singing at the 8:30 Mass on Sunday. I still haven't decided if I'm going to go to the fallback festival. I want to go, but it will cost $100 for a ticket. (Another one of those things where it is more difficult to be single.) It is for a good cause and if I really had the money, I could easily justify spending it. Most years, I've been unable to go because of a tournament conflict, but it has been moved to a later weekend and I "could" go... if I cough up the money. I volunteered to help, but you still have to buy a ticket. I need to make a decision by this weekend. I'm still contemplating the idea of selling my rosaries at a craft fair. That will cost $30 for booth rent, but I would hope to earn that back after selling a few rosaries.

I brought home papers to grade, but I don't think I can concentrate on them. I'm watching Criminal Minds right now and I'll be heading to bed by 9:30 once again. That seems to be helping me... going to bed early. I'm still tired by the end of the day, but I get going in the morning better. I finally got a book I ordered through Ebay last month. Turns out that they had the wrong address. I'm going to try to start reading it tonight. I need a little bit of pleasure in my life.

Well, that's all I have to report. I'm going to enjoy my show, play a game of scrabble, and read a little bit before hitting the sack.

Your days seem busy with so many things to do and so many kids looking to you for help and guidance. Your list seems endless. I admire you for being able to keep up with it all.

If you volunteer at the festival you still have to buy a ticket?

Here I have nothing to do and you have too much to do. I wish we could help each other by sharing the load. I worry about you and the load you must bear. I know you wish you had a partner to help with it. Do you ever hear from Marty any? That seems like so long ago. That shows how long I have been reading your blog religiously. Take care gentle soul and your online friends are thinking of you.
