I am having a devil of a time trying to get these postings out and labeling them properly. I am pretty sure I have this one right: day 6 of my attempt to post daily for 40 days.
Brief (but somewhat less brief) rundown of yesterday...
In each of my 3 classes I had to report student behavior to administration. Academic dishonesty, disrespectful behavior, theft of granola bars and unregistered use of a backpack prior to the end of the day.
In a good month/quarter/year I do not require administrative heavy-handedness. But in these cases the follow-up will involve meetings with parents, calls home and expulsion from class. So not just a little thing. Which draws things out. Which is exhausting.
Went to the March for Science today in Saint Paul, MN with my two boy children. Here is what that looked like: 3 nerdy and introverted people at the Saint Paul Cathedral, walked a few blocks down the hill to the state capitol, took some pictures of cool signs, realized that we'd had enough of crowds and arranged to be picked up.
Count us in.
Daughter cleaned up riverfront with the girl scouts and her grandma. Happy Earth Day.
Looked in minor despair at the state of House and Garden. Paralyzed by not knowing what to do (wanted to do EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW) but instead spent a short period of time outside clearing detritus from the garden beds and then binge-watched Bomb Girls all afternoon.
time outside even if it was with a bunch of crowds and then verging on zombie-gardening.
need to get my meds; tried to order from CVS but the Rx number is wrong. Have to call while they are actually answering their phones.
