No necklace yesterday.
No neclace today.
Probably no necklace tomorrow.
School started on Tuesday. I'm at a new school this year, after that debacle of a school I
taught disciplined at last year.
I'm teaching 8th grade and 10th grade English, 11th grade Speech, and 12th grade Reading.
I've not been this tired or pooped out in a long time.
The good news is I actually feel like a teacher again. I haven't felt this way for over a year. I actually have materials to teach from and enhance my lessons, unlike my previous school where I'm pretty sure I broke many copyright laws. Shhh! Don't tell anyone.
One of the best parts about this new job is that I get a SMART board in my room. If you don't know what that is, it's an interactive board that I can touch the screen and things happen right there. This means I don't have to be chained to my computer to go to a different website, click to the next slide, etc. I've been enjoying it a lot the last 2 days.
Anyway, enough about school. The necklaces are coming. I promise. I started working on one last night. Had to quit after about 20 minutes. I actually told Justin that it was the necklace making that made me so tired I had to go to bed. He told me it was probably getting up at 5:00am and being on my feet all day that made me tired. Not the neclace. I still think it was the necklace!
I picked the project up again tonight while watching The Golden Girls Season 5 on DVD. (It's Wednesday, Justin is at Grad School, otherwise that wouldn't be happening) I got through one episode before I gave in and curled up on the couch to relax.
I promise that there will be a necklace by the end of the weekend. PROMISE!
I decided to make my font purple for 2 reasons:
1. The necklace I'm making is purple.
2. My new school's colors are purple and white. We're the Wildcats!
(It's about time I'm at a school that isn't red and white)
Have a great rest of the week. I'm going to bed. It's 8:00pm.
