Easy like Sunday Morning

Hello, folks! I'm feeling better enough now to smile and be positive. An extra hour of sleep will help ya out like that!

I went to a good conference yesterday. It was a reading conference, and lasted til 1 and then I came home and took a nap! Do you notice a trend here, that sleep matters in my life?! It is my favorite hobby! LOL

Today we have the regular activities. I've got to get lesson plans done. I don't have class this week or have school on Tuesday so I can work on the three papers I need to have done by NEXT Tuesday then.

Tomorrow we have school and then our Fall Festival. I just love how our PTO is supposedly doing this, but it really is the teachers that run the games. I'm a parent, but I can't volunteer to help out my son's teacher with her game since I'll be running my own. We'll be there from 5-9. Yeah. Good times. I don't mean to sound cynical, but we have had SO many days we had to stay after school for something, that I'm just worn out. We do get time toward the extra 20 days we have to work each year, but we don't get one MINUTE over what we were actually there, and half the time we don't get as much as we were truly there. Maybe it wouldn't irritate me so much if other schools were treated the same way, but they aren't. I'm over it.

OK, well, I need to get into a church state of mind here, so I'll quit griping. Have a great Sunday!

I had to laugh at your comment about how PTO is supposedly doing it, but it's really the teachers who end up doing the work. SO TRUE! I always put on Red Ribbon Week at my school (drug awareness, if you don't do it), and this year, the PTA offered to help. I was like, GREAT, because I could so use the help. Well, the offer was basically an empty offer because when the moms were to show up to help me decorate, and then daily to hand out prizes, only TWO moms bothered to come in and help. The rest just disappeared. So it ended up making me look unorganized. I was not happy!
