This Will Kill Me or Make Me Stronger


I got nine lives
Cat’s eyes
Usin’ every one of them and runnin’ wild

Well, well, well….

Reglog if you are not emotionally prepared for Supernatural season 10
So much pissed

I had to miss work today because I had 3 appointments that I had to handle… Ready for the drama?  Here goes:

  1. I had to go to urgent care to get my health cert to teach because my former county won’t send it.  What was going to cost me $25 ended up costing me $120 because I had to have a TB test and my TDAP.
  2. My sub didn’t show up… ever… period.  They had to pull the lady who was subbing in the library to come sub for me until the 2nd sub could get there.  She said she’d never sub for my class again.  Ever.
  3. The teacher next door called me tonight and told me that my kids were TERRIBLE and that she couldn’t get anything done in her room because she had to spend all day in mine since my kids were wild and wouldn’t listen to any sub.  One got sent home for disrespect.  2 were writing notes about getting together this weekend to kiss and take pics.  4 girls just wreaked havoc in general.
  4. I got a letter from the credit union that said I didn’t make my house payment this month.  I would have sworn I did.  Guess not.
  5. I had a haircut at 11:00 and when I came out my battery was dead and I had to call AAA.  Turns out it was a loose cable and luckily my husband was there and he fixed it.
  6. I had to go have my yearly pap and breast exam.  Joy.
  7. I called my shrink’s office to see if I could come at 2 instead of 3 and the receptionist said come on.  I got there and the dr said she preferred to see me at 3 so I had an hour to kill.  I left and went to Lowe’s and my phone rang.  It was my dr and she said to get back there.  She said she thought I was someone else who was always late or cancelling but since it was me, she’d see me.
  8. I’m driving my family to Arby’s and my coworker calls to fill me in on JUST how awful my kids were.  The husband gets pissed because my friend doesn’t have any family except a husband who works all the time and she thinks I’m supposed to be able to drop what I’m doing and deal with school stuff.

My coworker is going to take the 9 “good kids” tomorrow and I’m going to keep the other 12.  

Winter is coming…


According to this, an elementary school teacher is a good job for balance because:

Elementary school teachers have the rewarding opportunity of educating the future of our country while also working flexible hours. They have summers off and they don’t typically work more than eight hour days,” says Himmel.


I don’t know which elementary school teachers THIS asshat talked to, but it wasn’t anyone I know… 10-12 hour days, working on weekends, summer planning and PD… Seriously?

All the ladies out there know exactly where I am… Oh joy…

This is one of the most adorable comics I’ve ever read

I’ve been waiting for this to pop back up on my dashboard.. we are way too hard on ourselves.

YES, EVERYONE!! Read this! You’re wonderful!

I did an activity based on this post in class recently. I had the students tape a piece of paper to their own back, then walk around the classroom and write things they admired about their classmates on each other’s backs. Everyone had to write at least one thing, but there was no limit to how many things people could write.

In 5 minutes, every back was full, and every student had chosen to write multiple things on their classmates’ backs.

Moreover, I happened to glance in the back of one of the quietest, most reserved student’s workbook the other day (a month after the activity).

He still has his piece of paper kept there.

I almost cried.

This is so important… I need to remember this…



do you ever listen to a song and remember exactly what life was like when you first heard it

Very often

All the time…
