One of those days, I guess....

No pretty pictures to post today. I really feel the need to vent, so please skip this post if you don't feel the need to read someone's complaints. :-(

To begin the day, my DEAR hubby (most of the time he's dear, anyway) was in a ROTTEN mood and informed me that all of our financial troubles are because of me. Now mind you, we do have financial troubles coming out of our ears lately, but we have both agreed over the course of our marriage that I am the responsible one and he is the one who needs to be more, shall we say, in tune with the balance of his checking account. We ironed that out eventually throughout the courseof the day, but to add to the stress, he starts a sort-of new job and a VERY new shift tonight: 11 PM to 9 AM, 4 days a week. Yuck. That means rearranging eating schedules and keeping 2 young kids quiet all day this summer.

Sooo...then I went to school. I teach 2nd grade. Things were ok until about lunchtime, when I discovered that someone had dragged a crayon stub all the way across the floor and back with their shoe, leaving a long, red, loopy skid mark. Of course, no one would admit to doing it. That alone is not a HUGE deal, but my class is very destructive and they have ruined sooo many things this year. They just don't care much about other people's posessions. Sigh. Only 16 more days left - there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

  1. My son is in first grade. Actually a combined first-second grade class. I go in fairly often for volunteering and I have to say his teacher is a SAINT! I don't know how she does it all day long with 20 kids. Not only does it, but does it well. So you have my sympathies and respect!
