Tomorrow is Monday!

I've been saying all week that Monday is Monday. Maybe that is obvious to most of you, but for the first time in two weeks it means Monday is the beginning of the work week for me. I am so NOT looking forward to it. I'm pretty excited about what I'm doing with 7th grade, but I just can't seem to get at all excited about those darn 8th graders. Landforms just aren't interesting. I'm working on lesson plans for the following framework

Investigate how global patterns of water currents influence local weather:
• Gulf Stream
• Atlantic Currents
• California Current

I just don't know what to do. I think part of the problem is that I'm stepping into territory that I don't feel too confident in. I'm having to really do my homework. I can't believer I've waited until tonight to do this. I'm kicking myself right now.

Okay - I guess I will quit whining and get to work. If you happen to read this tonight, please say a little prayer for me. I really do want to get excited about this.

  1. You will do great! Like you, I have been on vacation for two weeks and am back at work today. Whew, it is rough! As I was complaining about it last night, I had to stop and thank God that I had a place to work. Right now, when everyone is unemployed, having our jobs is a true blessing. With the perspective, it was a little easier to get up this morning. Good luck with your 8th graders today!
