School Days

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.

Leave us in suspense, why don't you!?! Just kidding. :) I'll be back to check out the weekend details...

I'll be thinking of you as you get all your required work completed. I hope my kid isn't one of the ones that are a pain and that the teacher can't stand. Yikes!

I was like, huh, Caiti did something interesting this weekend? :-p I've spent all day grading, too, and didn't finish it all. Sigh. I suck at life. But there's still hope for you! (!) ;-)

That sounds like a lot of work. I'm glad I only have to teach one!

Hey there...same name...same town....husbands with the same job, lol. We are in for the long haul, though...only 9 years left.

I took a peek at your Etsy store, very nice. I find that the more I have on mine, the more activity I get. Best of luck with it!!

Yippee on the new cuttlebug! I know I love mine!
How cute, I love that Boo game and that is the perfect little package for it! Whoever receives it will just love it.

I got my nursery bedding at Babies R Us...and sometimes I find some on eBay...
