Even Friday has lost it's thrill....

But since yesterday's post was full of tension, I'll try to tone it down a little today. Friday is the day I have morning duty. Which makes it a little harder to motivate myself to get out of bed, knowing I'll be thrown straight into the day. I like my quiet time in my classroom before the chaos of the day begins; lockers slamming, shoes squeaking, books being dropped, and the general drama filled conversations of the tween set. But, if I want quiet on Friday morning, I have to get up even earlier than normal, a price I'm just not willing to pay. Instead, I sacrifice my quiet in exchange for a round rock donut. covered in chocolate. And as I stand in the front hall checking for passes, I savor the sweet, sweet sugar rush that gets me through the morning.
Other things that got me through the week (in no particular order):
Apple turnover yoplait yogurt.
Turkey bacon.
Theraflu warming relief cough syrup
Crossfit workouts ("running jackie" was almost as RX!)
Vanilla Diet Cherry Limeades from Sonic Happy Hour.
Tuesday night at the Dell.
One Tree Hill & Lie to Me
Guitar Hero Metallica - which I might have played for over an hour by myself on beginner level
Archiver's coupons to finish teacher appreciation gifts.

The good news is I only have 4 more days to be under this tremendous stress. My kiddoes test next Friday and it's all over after that. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
