I’m so sick of winter. How can it only be the middle of January? It seems like years since we had warm weather. Usually, we have pretty decent weather through December. This year, it seems like it’s been cold and dreary since October.
We were dismissed from school early on Thursday. At least, the kids got to leave early. Teachers had to stay until 2:30. Pissed me off because I had to drive home with Jake and Steven and I had to drive all the way to Fairdale to pick up Scout because his after-school daycare was closed and David was working. So…I had to wait until the roads got really nasty before I could even begin the journey. I didn’t get all the kids home until 4:00 because of traffic and road conditions. I put in an extra 1 1/2 hours on Tuesday and then stayed an extra 2 hours on Wednesday. It just gripes the Hell out of me when we get an early dismissal and teachers have to stay in the building because we’re paid until 2:30. I mean, either we’re hourly (in which case you should pay me for all the extra time I put in) or we’re salary and have some options about being at school when the kids aren’t. On top of that, the media had been telling everyone that schools would probably be dismissed early and the kids were climbing the walls.
We also missed school on Friday which was okay with me. I don’t want to make it up but, at least, they let us know at 10:00 Thursday night so we could plan and it made for a long weekend. I brought a ton of work home with me so I guess I’ll spend the day grading papers and planning lessons.
Uggghhh…how many days till spring?
Joy, I tried to figure out how to set my comments to just allow 3FC but I couldn’t find the setting. I found where you could do it for individual posts. Is there a setting for the entire site?
