A Horrible, Terrible, Turned Around Very Good Night

There is no full moon tonight.

I checked.

So WHY did I have one of THOSE days?

You know, the ones that make you say...


I seriously had to step away for a few minutes and go cry in a corner.

You know, the angry-frustrated-I-don't-want-to-harm-the-children-cry? 

Yep, it was one of those.

And then I took a deep breath, and walked back to class and started all over again with my afternoon group.

They were wonderful angel babies.

They had heard about my morning from their friends. :)

I hope your day was better.

Mine got insanely better once I got home.

I came home to find some laundry started, litter boxes emptied, a toilet fixed, a cleaned kitchen and a sweet husband willing to pick up my favorite frozen pizza for dinner.

Day saved!!


In other news, I am working furiously on a new conventions packet. My sweet teammates are being guinea pigs and I am trying to get it out and ready as soon as possible.

However, there was a HEATED debate over the cute little orange graphic you see in the cover below. He makes an appearance frequently throughout the pack and if he's not working, I need to find an alternative ASAP.

Would you do me a favor and vote?






I'll be back tomorrow Thursday with a freebie, an update and an awesome adjective post! :)

I will leave you with something that brought me back down to Earth today with a good giggle.


So true. So incredibly true.

Here's hoping all of our tomorrows are better than today. :)

  1. Oh my, thank goodness I don't look like I did in 6th grade anymore! Way to put it in perspective. Hope tomorrow is a better one!

  2. Great reality post. Glad the day improved for you.
    Just remember, you are making a difference to little lives (in the classroom) and big lives (via this blog). What you do matters to lots of people. Take a deep breath and keep up the great work. Cheers!

  5. I love the ecard you shared! It was exactly what I needed after having the two worst weeks of my teaching career!! I'm so sorry to hear you had such a terrible, horrible day, but it's great to know there are other educators out there to share and understand the daily trials of working with young ones everyday! ;) Hope this week is off to a better start for you!!

  6. Oh my, don't you worry about it because we all have those days every once in a while. Those days where you just want to go and kick and scream and pout and crawl in a hole. The best part is, though it eventually gets better :) I hope your day is better today!
