Okay, it has been forever since I've written here. It has been one of those ummm months.
School started back, and I have been overwhelmed. My classes are jam-packed. I have 31 seniors. Thirty-one! UGH! It is difficult to get all of them to focus and on the same page. I've tried to teach them MLA and it has been so hard. However, I think that most of them have gotten it, finally. I'm still grading thier working bibliographies...*eye roll* I don't have a clue how in the world I'm going to get all the papers graded for my three classes. Oh well, whine, whine, whine....it will get done because it has to get done. That's all there is to that.
My juniors are a whole other story. I had heard for two years how "bad" and immature this class was. OH MY GOSH, the other teachers were right. I just get all grouchy thinking about them. I am already counting the days until next semester. Seriously.
We had today off. It was such a welcome day off. I really needed it. I've done laundry all day. It has been piling up since school started...oops!
I got to spend yesterday with my friend Tammy. YEAH! I had a great time with her! I have missed her so much. She added so much happiness and energy to our department, and we all miss her terribly. I know she is very glad to be living with her hubby full time (he was off at grad school), but daggumit, they need to live closer! :)
I need to go finish some more laundry. Oh joy. Plus, I need to go read my book The Reliable Wife.
