Two words- Open House. Excuse me if I ramble. It is LATE. I am VERY tired. However, I must type it out first. I am an overachiever. I cannot just get parents in my room and expect them to sit and listen to a boring little speech. No, no, no... so I sat tonight uploading the podcasts to the JPod website for the new radio show. I edited every single one in Audacity, enhancing the volume and fixing some of the parts where they stuttered nervously. That took about an hour and a half. Then I think... well, I should make a PowerPoint. So I did... with photos of the kids. Really cute. It included all my goals for the year. Very informational. Eleven slides long. However, I couldn't stop there and decided to type up a resource packet for reading and math. I included websites, a glossary, and more of my usual things. In the process of that, I had to print out the Reading Log calendar for October as well as the project sheet for this month for realistic fiction. Somehow I ate, showered, blew my hair dry (once again), and went to Wal-Mart to get ink as well as some cookies and crackers for the Open House. O.M.G.!!! In the words of my fourth graders.... I am INSANE! I LOVE this year's class. They are incredible and I spend a lot of time working hard for them... however, I am going to wilt!!! Wow. I just typed this out like a fifteen year old. O.M.G.!?!?! (Passes out from utter and complete teacher exhaustion) It's late, really late. Personal life? Nix that until Friday. It's Open House day, and I have yet once again gone over the top! Ummmm.... so... can anyone relate? Or am I in my own realm?
