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.

This week we have Good Friday off and I still feel like I need another day off this week. We have been planning for what we are going to do to get our grade ready for TAKS. I am tired and feel like I need another Spring Break. One of my teammates said that Spring Break was an appetizer for summer. That is so true. I got used to napping and staying up late. I did a lot of running around and doing chores but it was so productive. I just want it to be summer. Now. I applied to Summer School and if I get it-great. If not, I have my whole summer to myself. Now if I can just make to tomorrow....I think I can, I think I can....
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.
