Slice of Life Stories hosted
This morning I had nothing. Oh, I had plenty to write about, but nothing that I wanted to write about -- so I waited for the day to bring a story to me that I'd want to share.
Lunchtime rolled around and no ideas were saying, "Pick me! Write me! I'm here!" So, I decided to sit and ponder as I nibbled my pb and j sandwich. I looked around my classroom noticing that it wasn't looking all neat and tidy like that first day of school and started to type:
And we're off! School started last Monday with teachers and students arrived ready to go on Wednesday.
Why is it that once I step foot into school, I'm already feeling behind?
Why is it that I already have a pile starting to grow on my desk and counter?
Why is it that my to-do list is growing exponentially by the day?
Why is it that everything takes so much longer than anticipated?
This is why teachers feel the
nudge pushshove to move so quickly through everything. This is my personal reminder to take a breath. Enjoy. Be there. Smile. Laugh. Create new memories and learning.
I made a few more additions and changes, clicked save, and my blogger site disappeared. I waited and then the dreaded district "access denied" screen appeared due to personal blog content.
"What the . . .? Access denied? No!" I questioned aloud. I ran down the hall to our tech teacher (a fellow slicer as well) and wondered what we were going to do. After all, my Tuesday lunches are for reading and commenting. This can't be . . .
But it sure looks like it is true.
