This has been a trial of a week. I feel like I've been hit with everything (although I know I haven't). My car is down, me class has been a bunch of wild banchees, my classroom computer quit performing certain very important programs (such as my GradeQuick program for uploading all my grades), and I turned a year older. I didn't quit. I kept at it. Today (well, Friday, since this will post as Saturday) was actually pretty good. My kids were still not obeying well, but it was probably their best day this week. I've been able to get some computer things fixed and/or fixed them myself. Now, I'm sure it sounds like a gloomy post, but its not, really.
On my birthday, I had a few students bring me in gifts (these kids melt my heart). My roomies surprised me with a cake that they brought out at lunch time (mind you, I have to eat with my class), and we all had cake and ice cream.
My roomies and I are getting along pretty well. We've had quite a few laughs recently. Thursday, "A" called my phone, but left a message for one of her students who has the same first name as I. When I got the message, I told her I didn't know I had a test to take....that I am usually the one giving the test..lol. I even told her we don't need all the formalities (she said, " Hi Nicole, this is Miss ________")...hahaha...we laughed about that!
Oh, the lady I babysit for treated me to a birthday dinner: a kid's meal! We were going out visiting and then I was going to watch 4 of her kids while she took the one to the Dr. We all ended up going since they called and said they could see at an earlier time. My birthday was interesting to say the least.
On Friday, we had a few ladies over and had a good dinner and a great game of Phase 10. I finally know how to play! I never played it before. We were all cutting it up and having a good time. I guess we are having Friday night get togethers more often. We're already planning for next week.
Well, its way past bed time and I am tired. I do want to say that I am blessed and that I know God will not give me more than I can handle as long as I am looking to Him. With God, all things are possible and there is nothing too hard for Him to take care of. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Have a great day/afternoon/night...whenever you may read this!
