Okay, I'm good with this.

How about I ran 47 minutes on the treadmill today? I am so excited. I logged 3.48 miles. Yipee. My feet are a little sore, but I was able to run and talk to someone for about 10 minutes. This running deal is pretty cool. The training in the afternoons with the cross-country team really has helped. Running in 100 weather is pretty awesome for building stamina.

School is good. I had to give my 3rd block discipline sheets to fill out. There are blanks for every incident and every consequence. I shouldn't have to do this, but I have some knuckle-head types who think that they need to grace us all with the latest rap lyrics or a little of Whitney's "It's Not Alright, But It's Okay." I've explained how silly this is going to look on a discipline referral, but I'm having so many outbursts, that I have NO choice. So much for that. My other two classes are dreams when it comes to behavior. It's really proving to be a good year.

I've gotta wash some clothes. UGH. Why do I hate doing that so much?

To the wash! See you lather!

Ahh, the school I am working at, has just switched to block scheduling and has all the regular and special education teachers in a tizzy! It will be interesting to see if it works at the elementary level. We have 45 minute blocks.

"See you lather" that was soooo Staniel. Made me smile though!
