Friday Feelings

It’s Friday. It’s FINALLY not raining. And I don’t want to go to school today. (Say that in a childish, whiny voice for accuracy).

I just want to stay home, cuddle my doggies, read a book, drink tea, go for a walk. I don’t want to go listen to teenagers whine about reading Of Mice and Men. “We have to read it by ourselves?” Yes, 17 year old, you have to read that tiny, way below grade level book by yourself while listening to an audiobook if you want to.

This time of year is SO hard. Right? It’s not just me? Teachers are exhausted because we’ve been going nonstop since our 3-day MLK Jr. weekend in January. Spring break is two weeks away. Patience is low. Energy is nonexistent. There is not enough chocolate in the world.

Send help!

And it’s been raining for weeks, y’all. Like, weeks. Everything has been dark, grey, and smushy. Gross. Everyone is going stir crazy. Add in the fear of the cornovirus, the crazy spring season of band trips to Disney, dance trips to NYC, two day track meets, and golf tournaments every week, and, well, I mean…it’s just crazy town.

But it’s Friday and I’ll probably (hopefully) make it through the day. I’ll smile a lot and fake it ’til I make it, or until the end of the day mercifully comes.

I hope you all have a great Friday!

  1. Oh how I can relate to students whining. I just had to scold one of mine for whining. They are reading The Westing Game aloud in small groups. They lost their place and then didn’t want help from their group. I had to get the tone out. Is it Spring Break yet?! This time of the year is very hard. At least it’s not raining where you are. Lucky.


  2. Oh, you’ve captured so much in this post. Here are my favorite lines: “Patience is low. Energy is nonexistent. There is not enough chocolate in the world.” I was excited to click on your link and recognize your header from slicing with you last year.
