#8 of 31 Don't Call Me, I'll Call You

So I'm tired. Really tired. One of the reasons is here, at Fountain's blog. She wrote about our day at school very eloquently, and I'm too tired to try and out do her.

But the other reasons, I've been sick (just a cold, nothing to worry about) and it's the end of speech season (mostly 10 hour days since mid-November). It makes me grouchy. It makes me sensitive. It makes me a teacher I don't want to be.

But it will be over tomorrow.

Tomorrow is State Speech. I'm leaving at 7:30am, taking 20+ kids and hour and a half away on a school bus to a competition that has my last performer going at 5:45pm.

I'll love every minute of it.

But don't call me, I'll call you.

  5. Love this! It's so hard to get up and do something when you are soooooo tired and cranky, even if you know you'll enjoy it. Good luck to you and your kids tomorrow!

  6. Best of luck to all your kids! It will be a great day and I'm sure spring break is right around the corner for you. Time to get healthy and catch up on some zzzz's. Looking forward to hearing about the outcomes! Now I'm going to find out what else is going on at Fountain's blog . . .

  7. Spring break is coming soon for you...right?? It will be well deserved. So good to know your kids are making you proud in the meantime. I can't wait to hear how your day goes tomorrow. I hope they wrestle an alligator (and I hope I remembered that phrase correctly).

  8. We are headed in to Speech Season at our school too, but I am not the one responsible as you are. Take pride in all of their accomplishment! I'll be escorting two young men to Spelling Bee later in March. Such fun seeing them do well, isn't it? Enjoy...and prepare for a nap on Sunday afternoon!

  11. Good luck! I hope your cold ends soon and you are on the road to recovery. Since we can't reach you by phone, is it ok to tweet? LOL

  13. Oh Deb, what a day you will have, but I can't even imagine how tired I would be if I had to do all that. Best to your students and to you!

  14. This is the happy paradox of teaching -- it exhausts us, but we do it because we love it. Have fun tomorrow!

  17. Hehe...love the title & last line. Enjoy the speech meet today.

    Sam has become a regular reader of your blog. He checks to see Chloe has to say.

    After reading this post, he has a note for Chloe (typed by him)...

    Dear Chloe,
    I could come dog-set for you, but, I live to far from you,Chloe. It is sad that your mom is gone all day. I wish I could come to your house. (can you invite us over sometime?)Love, Sam :):)
