|My lonely car in the snowy parking lot...|
Confession #2: I actually LOVE going into school on days off. Wait, let me explain before you form judgments...I do NOT love spending time at school during breaks, but I love how quiet it is when I do go in. I can sit and file in peace, I am not at all rushed or having to watch the clock, I don't have to worry about hogging the copier or waiting in line...I can simply get me work done peacefully and head out when I feel like it!
This afternoon I just stopped in briefly. Mostly, I needed to pick up my class fish, Fighty, and save him from impending death by starvation. While there, I inevitable found other things to occupy my time! I purposely didn't bring my grading or computer, because then I'd really settle in for the long haul! Today I just hung up some more ISAT signs on the ever-growing clothes line (pictures to come), filed transparencies and handouts from the past two weeks, and started copying ISAT reading practice passages. GROSS. It's that time of year, though! And I know I will greatly appreciate having taken the time to copy them now when we are back in the thick of things in 2 weeks! I will probably go in again once or twice next week to move desks, continue copying, and do my plans for the next week or so. Plenty of time still, though!!
Confession #3: While at school, I gathered all of the leftover candy that had been brought for the Holiday Party and put it in the candy rewards jar. But not before I picked out all of the mini dark chocolate candy bars and put them in MY personal candy stash....*evil laugh* That's totally ethical, right?
