This is going to be a long one.  Partially that’s due to my schedule this week which is hellish but it’s also partially due to the fact that I am sick and have been sick for a week.  In my “what doesn’t work” category, being sick doesn’t work.  As the saying goes, “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired!”

Beyond my own germy, wheezy ways, this is going to be a long week.  After school today, I have two meetings to attend.  Tomorrow, after school, I have one meeting.  Wednesday, I’ll be in a Step Up to Writing training all day which gets me out of all afternoon professional development meetings (although, I know that I’ll still have to do the work that they’re all doing there, too somehow!).  Thursday and Friday, I anticipate being in the ER or something.  Seriously, two weeks before the holidays and I’ve got a killer schedule and I’m already feeling killed.

Whine, whine, whine.

On a positive note, I dug out my classroom Christmas tree and some decorations and I’ll put those up today.  That should cheer me up a little and it will certainly distract the 5th graders!  🙂
