Knock on Wood

I take garlic pills and daily vitamins faithfully. They have been working very well for me and I have not been sick hardly at all this school year. But cleaning kids nose and butt crevices who are sick guess the germs still seep in me. Got a stuffy nose and sneezing like crazy. This is not alergies. Early signs of a cold. Man. Knock on wood as they say.

Been up late every night trying to fix other peoples screw ups. The online program I use to manage my students is always acting up. Plus when the other members on the team don't fullfill their paperwork on time it falls on my hands. That part of my job just SUCKS!!! Wish I could just teach and leave at the end of the day. The paperwork part is insane and stinks. Wish everyone were as passionate and caring about the kids like I am. I am thankful daily to have a job and to have not been pick slipped.

My own kids have 7 days left and the school year is done. How this happened I do not know. I continue through July 21. They have a spring concert on Thursday and then Noah graduates next week and Emeline has a special promotion program too.

We have a new garage tenant moving in on the 31st. Whew. Lots to do and so little time.

Tonight is all about me I taking some drugs and heading to bed. This mom is beat.

besides, the fact that I would hate teaching and make a terrible teacher, i wouldn't ever become a teacher because you can't just teach and leave at the end of the day. there is always paperwork and/or planning to do after hours. sorry about all the extra work you have to do to fix other people's mistakes on the program you have to use.

i hope you had a good night sleep last night and are feeling better.

i really want to attend the concert tomorrow but will probably not make it. i feel the most nauseous in the afternoon/evenings. but i will do everything i can to make it to the graduation. i know sofia will enjoy seeing Noah and Jada all dressed up.

Thank you for your kind words and concern. There is just so much stress at the end of the year. I love the teaching part but unfortunately the paperwork comes with.

It is a fast moving cold so I hope to get good rest over the 3 day weekend.
So nice to have my own private bedroom.
