Holy freaking cow.

I'm exhausted.

I'm teaching a long term 4th grade assignment.

Today was the first day of school.

By lunch, I knew WITHOUT.A.DOUBT. that I will never teach 4th grade full time.

This is for 8 weeks...

I can deal with anything for 8 weeks....

And, since I've got my teaching degree, I 'max' out the pay scale....

(otherwise known as the fee for our agency to get into the 'match book')

Oh, and I'm taking college courses.

Yesterdays brought on a mild panic attack. 

It was a graduate level course that should be taken right before you write your thesis.

It has a 40 page paper that is the 'jump-off spot' for your thesis.

I haven't even applied to the master's program....

(Yes, I'm one of those people that just randomly takes classes....grad level or not!)

So... to find a new class to replace that one... and I'll be good....

Now where is my wine?


  1. The first day is always the hardest! I think you will learn to love Grade 4 they are at such a great age. Although even if you don't learn to love them the pay sounds well worth it!

  2. Sounds like a crazy day.

    Hope you were able to enjoy that glass of wine and get some good sleep!

  3. Maybe the 4th graders will grow on you??? :)

    Get out of that class now, woman!

  4. 8 weeks! It will fly by. The wine does help. :) I am in awe of your drive to learn. I still get those test taking nightmares and thank the lord I dint have to do that anymore!

  5. It will get much much better!!!!! Hang in there and put your feet up!
