It’s Friday and I feel the entire week of tired. I can tell when I haven’t been paying much attention to the news and world events. It usually happens when I’m busting my butt at work, not that I don’t every day. But lately I come home, spend some time with the family and then fall asleep.
I haven’t been paying attention to the news. When I focus more on the news, writing ideas come a lot easier. Since I haven’t been watching the news……..(insert cricket noise). Part of the empty brain syndrome I feel like I’m suffering from is the fact that I may have finally remedied my frustration with not writing in front of the students. Since we have tried to rearrange the order of how we present our writing curriculum, I may have found a way to write and model more for my students. So I’ve written a lot more and it’s “done emptied my brain.”
So hello weekend! You’ve come at the right time. Except for the fact that I’ve got 70 persuasive papers that are waiting to be graded. I’m hoping motivation slaps me “up-side” the back of the head. But not too hard. Tonight, I decided to fall UP the stairs, missed bracing my fall with my hands and did a full on header into the basement door. Thank goodness it was cracked open, causing the door to fly open. Otherwise we might still be trying to remove the ole noggin’ from our basement door. It was one of the more graceful moments I’ve had in the last few weeks.
