I am giving a spelling test while I write this, and I should most definitely be multitasking in some other way. (Who am I kidding? Jefferson just informed me last night that women can’t multitask.)
Now the kids are taking a grammar test. The nice thing about this week is we have lots of tests. The rough thing about this week is that we have lots of tests that all need to be graded and entered in the system by midnight on Friday. Good luck.
I can’t wait for school to be out. I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself, but I’ll tell you right now it won’t involve driving two hours per day, or waking up before 6am (you know, until Frances arrives at least…)
But really, I should get to grading… these piles won’t grade themselves. And I have to organize all the classroom materials to be inspected tomorrow at lunch time. It’s going to be a royal pain. Why must everything be “due” Friday? We have most of next week here too…
Several kids have already “checked out” of this grammar test and are staring at walls. I mean, I saw it coming, and I can’t 100% blame them, seeing as I’m procrastinating just as much… but it’s still painful to watch. I know the grades will go accordingly.
I cannot wait for Gabrielle and Antigone to be here!
We spent the evening at the Johanni’s last night because they’re leaving for the summer in WA and we won’t see them except as they drop by on their way out of town tonight to drop off some perishables with us. They’re going to be gone until August. Mary is going to be gone about a month of the summer as well. Just about the time my own time and energy frees up to do things with people, they all take off! But. Gab and Tig will be coming at the end of June. Gabrielle will be here until, what, the first week of September you’re leaving? The last week of August? And Antigone I believe is leaving right after her birthday in mid-August. So at least all of July should be fun with “everybody” around.
I used the bathroom under an hour ago before all the kids got into class, and I already need to go again. Pathetic. My next “break” where I could persuade another teacher to keep an ear out for my class is at 10:00, so this is gonna be interesting.
I’m super tired. Got into bed somewhere around 1am. Okay, me. Stop talking. Go grade.
