Listening: Every Saturday morning I have the same routine - sit in the recliner with a cup of coffee (or several), add a dog to my lap, and watch all of the television from the week that I didn't have time to watch. So this morning's line-up began with New Girl. I love Zooey Deschenal and the twisted humor of this show.
Loving: This semester I have a student teacher with me and she is amazing! I have to admit though, it's not easy relinquishing your classroom over to someone. This is just as much a learning experience for me as it is her. My students love her and she has connected with them so well.
Thinking: I have an eye appointment in a few hours. It's terrible that teachers have to spend Saturday doing tasks like this, but it's been put off for far too long. I realized just how bad it was last week when I thought a tree was my husband when I was walking the dog at dusk. Terrible! I always have a hard time picking out something that I have to wear every day, so the pressure to choose the right pair is tremendous!
Wanting: A change...I've gotten into that funk of an attitude that I think demands change in some way. I cut 6 inches off of my hair, and that didn't do it. I've been teaching for 13 years and I'm thinking a change may do me well. I don't want to leave the career by any means, but thinking of moving up the food chain if I can.
Needing: to do a PILE of laundry. I hate it! I let it pile up all week and then start on Sunday. The fact that I have to wear only navy, white, and khaki all week means I have to wash 5 pairs of khakis and 5 white or navy shirts. It's a beast! I have so many clean clothes that would allow me to put it off even further, but the uniform requires that I do it.
Pet Peeves: Know-It-Alls: I can't stand people who think they know it all and are completely unteachable! I don't need to know your opinion on everything or even your distaste about it. Just listen.
Tights that sag - All winter I am on the lookout for tights that don't sag throughout the day. There is nothing worse than the crotch of the tights creeping all day. But, apparently, making tights with a waistband is a think of the past. I can't stand it!
