A blog from a thirty-something year old broke teacher trying to figure out why her fridge doesn't have food in it and why her life isn't fabulous like the Kardashian girls.

Will it be over soon?
These last couple of weeks seem to be moving very slow. I have tons of paperwork that I have to complete, several fun days that I have to go to and still have to maintain control of my class. I have brought home paperwork to fill out so that I will not be so behind. Today has been hard to get motivated to do anything though....the weather is rainy, cloudy and cool...perfect to fall asleep and pretend that I have nothing better to do with my time.
This is a place where I can rant about my life as a third grade teacher who continues to try to get her act together years after graduating college.
It is hard to find teaching blogs where the writer is not all rainbows and unicorns. Teaching is hard work and at times the kids are not fun and you don't feel like anything inspiring is happening in the classroom. It isn't that I don't love teaching, I can't imagine not doing it but I can't handle blogs where the writer never writes about the frustrations of teaching...or of the small paychecks that one receives on a monthly basis.
