In the wake of the last few weeks of school (only 12 teaching days left, plus 4 additional “teacher stuff” days) I have been exhausted! The students are driving me nuts, they are so up the wall crazy!
To give you just a little inkling of my exhaustion/frustration level I will reveal to you in secrecy that I had a dream the other night that I abused one of students. Well, abuse is relative- I yelled at him, took him by both arms and swung him around and threw him against a wall (remember this is a dream). Afterwards, I realized that I was in trouble and started running from the police that I wasn’t sure were after me or not. Kind of a proactive attempt to save myself.
Question: What does this say about me?
Maybe my dream self needs some anger management…
On the brighter side, we had a good ole time with Jennifer and Brandi while they were in town. Matt celebrated the big “3-5” on April 26 while they were here and it was really fun making fun of Matt for moving out of the 18-24 yr age bracket and making it into the next one. It was like a rite of passage that we celebrated with cake and beer. Yummers!

Matt loves his cake- too bad I haven’t learned the art of keeping this cake straight with Mousse filling in-between the layers

Mike and I got Matt these awesome pens as a gift. They have their Allstate logo and office info on them. Anyone need Insurance, by the way??
In other news, lookey what the Department of Education faeries sent me recently:
So plenty of good news after all. Did I mention that I only have 12 more teaching days?? Just checking…
PS- I begin injections for the IVF scheduled next week. Yikes! I hope that my hormones don’t cause any of those “school dreams” to come true. In any event, that means that in about 2.5 weeks I will have the transfer of my embryo babies. WHOA!
