And a glass of wine.
I'm not much fancy.
On a post the other day, Laura asked me "How do you find the time?" because I've posted a lot of products in a short amount of time.
I'm just going to speak honestly.
This is mostly because I'm nuts.
I'm nuts in that I am perfectly happy working till 5:30, coming home after work, sitting on the couch while shoving eggs and bacon in my face, watching Sarah Silverman while blogging/making stuff/planning/complaining to friends on the phone.
I think that might make me sound bitter.
My mother always says, "You always have time for the things you do first."
She makes up a lot of stuff, but this one is true.
What do I do first? Sit and work on my laptop.
I do other stuff too.
These things include...
going to my mom's house and looking in the fridge.
avoiding taking my brother to Barnes & Noble because he's too expensive.
going to my other brother's house and demanding free stuff they've gotten from extreme couponing
watching movies while eating enormous amounts of butter with a little popcorn
sitting at my hunny's house watching Fringe or Mad Men
playing board games
watching my dogs bother the cats
visiting friends and drinking quantities of wine
Okay, I just realized I do WAY less stuff than I used to do.
I used to have adventures all the time. I think my hunny made me more content to stay home.
In case you're interested in other mother-isms, (things my mother says) here are a couple:
- "Nobody knows what I know." said in a very spooky voice.
- "Neither a leader nor a follower be." Sound familiar? It's modified from Shakespeare's "Neither a lender nor a borrower be." But she thinks she has it right.
- "Nobody knows how dumb you are until you open your mouth." She's not talking to "you" exactly; it's more of a generalization.
Can you tell I don't want to talk about work?
I will say two things:
1. I'm working on another Jamie O'Rourke unit, but this one is for Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato.
2. Today, I had a walk-through from my principal. Two of my kids actually approached the guided reading table during a guided reading lesson. This is forbidden. You never come to the table unless you're already at the table. I nearly lost it. I was furious, because these two were being deliberately naughty! Then I read my evaluation. "Great job multitasking between guided reading group and the rest of the class. Good job redirecting." Phwew. Not what I would've written, but I'm thankful.
Sorry about this valueless post. I've had quantities of wine that will go unwritten. Tomorrow should be better.
I was about to write, "And at least it's Friday!" but I have to teach Saturday School for nine Saturdays.
