Dear fellow bloggers,
I am so, freakin' tired. Honestly. I need another cup of coffee and a couple of matchsticks for my eyelids, type of tired.
This is the first time, in a couple of months, that I've done a full week at the school I volunteer at.
I'm now in awe of teachers. I don't know how they do it. If I was wearing a hat, and if I wasn't so damn tired (yeah, I know I'm over using that word), I'd raise it to them. Give your kid's teacher a hug ... honestly, he or she really, really deserves it! And if I wasn't so TIRED, I'd write a loooong post about why I think they deserve it, like dealing with 'No Child Left behind' , spending 1000's of dollars of their OWN money on students, dealing with parents who think their little brats are total angels and so on .... but I'm just too bloomin' TIRED !!
Okay ... now I'm off to deal with 33 1st graders, 102 paper butterflies, 34 large paper flowers and 68 small paper flowers, that I somehow volunteered to turn into table decorations for the retiring staff's luncheon. The butterflies and the flowers, that is ... though the temptation is there to turn some of those 1st graders into something as well....
And one of the damn dogs is standing there yipping at me, can't he see I'm TIRED!!
