I apologize for the lack of posts. I thought with Dan being gone I would have more opportunities to write. Boy was I wrong. What I didn't realize was that school was going to take over my life.
Tomorrow grades and comments are due for progress reports. This is the worst/most stressful time for a teacher. We are required to put all of our assignments and grades into a program on the computer. Thankfully, the computer will average all of the grades and tell you what letter grade the student has earned. That saves me a ton of work! No longer do I need my calculator! The downside is that I have to transfer all of my grades from me "paper grade book" to my "computer grade book". What a pain. I found that I was a bit behind in my grading today, so I stayed after school to finish my grading, put my grades on the computer, and to start my comments. Comments are the worst. I never know what to say. I never know how to put, "your child is rude, disruptive, and out of control" into nice, kind, helpful words. It takes me a very long time needless to say.
I love those kids who I can say, "Great start to the year! So and So works hard and gets all of their assignments completed on time!" to. Why can't they all be that way? If you're a parent, make sure that's you kid :p
Anyway, I'm starting to miss Dan like crazy. I can't stop thinking about when he'll be home (next Friday) or when he'll be out of the Navy (Sept 1, 2009). It's so close, yet so far away. I think the closeness of it makes it harder for me since I'm so anxious. If only I could stop thinking about it. Fat chance.
Well, I was hoping to post about my awesome over the weekend, but I don't feel like hooking my camera up to the computer to upload pictures. I guess you'll have to wait until later.
**It's not that exciting.
