No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I just had a grump day today. Was it bad? No. Did I ever get so upset I felt like crying? No. I was just being a grump.
I'm tired, I'd spent about 5 days grading a bunch of essays, I hadn't gotten much sleep, and then this morning WW both online and mobile was NOT working. I couldn't get to my meal plan to remember what to pack for breakfast and lunch, so I was grumpy when I went to to work. Then, before school even started, I had students coming in to talk to me. Now, most any other day, I would have felt honored that the students feel comfortable enough with me to come hang out and talk. But today I was trying to grade, so I wasn't as happy about it. I think the kids could tell because they left after about 10 minutes or so.
During class was great, minus this one student who must have his head in the clouds (or, as a colleague put it, up his...) Anyway, this kid argued with me about his assignments and actually asked me why he didn't have an A when he hasn't turned in a SINGLE assignment. UGH. He just doesn't seem to pay attention; that coupled with his lack of social skills makes me want to snap some sense into him. With my lack of patience, I just couldn't handle it today.
And, to top things off, I had students come to talk to me during my LUNCH, which made me late getting to the lunch room. When I got there, the other teachers had let a student take my chair (well, not MY chair, but the chair that would have been mine had it been at the teacher table), so I had nowhere to sit, so I left the lunchroom and ate by myself in my room.
So, by the end of the school day, I was hating everything. I walked into the teacher workroom to make copies, and saw a great thank you appreciation note and a pile of goodies. I grabbed a couple Starburst, a snack size pack of Oreos, and a mini Powerade. Not clean eating, but it was a bright spot in my day.
Now I'm on the couch relaxing. I'm finally done grading, so I was able to read my magazine, watch a TV show, and help the hubby with dinner. Now we're about to eat and watch the premiere of Parenthood, which I missed last night because I forgot about it.
Hope everyone had a better day than I did!
