no, i'm not reporting on a recent trip to the bathroom... i'm reporting on my physical strength level at the present moment. and my mental capacity.
school starts monday. tomorrow is a holiday here in utah & my principal decided not to open school on friday for us. so - today was my last day of preparation. i started the day off feeling super - super prepared, super positive, super excited. then, right before lunch - i got slammed with the information of having another kid added to my list. i was done with all of the student stuff. everything was labeled. everything was passed out. everything there was supposed to be done. i had my afternoon set aside to finish up this big planning project for the whole year. well one more student just threw me for a loop & my afternoon was spent trying to catch up. i am almost positive i've got everything covered, but heaven only knows i probably don't.
i'm excited about this class. i hear they're low, but i also have taught siblings of almost half of my students before. that's cause this'll be my 8th year. 8TH YEAR. back in the day, my kids thought i was in highschool... they'd go home and tell their parents they had a highschool teacher. parents would show up nervously to check me out. now, they assume i'm at death's door. ha. not really. but they might think me preggers.
ok. get this. garrett has me concerned. i was pretty convinced that he doesn't do drugs. but i just heard from brooke that he thinks we might need to head downtown for the parade tomorrow around 4 or 5... now... i'm fairly certain he smokes dope. heavily. (mom and dad, that's a joke) maybe its time to let him see middle of the night hayley. he says he aint scared... this might be just the lesson he needs. (middle of the night hayley isn't grumpy too much, just not a real looker) i'm thinking we'll have to try more like 7. maybe 6:30. that's sane, right?!
well... i'm off to relax tonight with the tibster... we're gonna catch a movie. she's been feeling a little neglected lately. i'm excited to catch up with her, she does make me giggle. and blush. a lot.
in conclusion - i wish i had a recording of last night's conversation/singing/dancing with kimmy in the work room. we were both there late. we were both exhausted. we were both beyond slap happy. we were doing our best mexican accents. there were tears involved cause there was so much laughter. then we discovered that a brand new teacher was out in the hallway & probably heard most of our retardation. didn't stop us! we kept right on going. but don't worry, today i avoided eye contact with that newbie. she probably thinks i'm completely off my rocker. that's what all of these 10 hour days at school are doing to me. making me looney. haha
