My job is not the most stressful job in the world. It certainly has its moments but most of the time it’s not bad. This week, however, the stress and tension reaches the absolute max level. End of Grade tests (EOG) are this week. The parents are stressed, the kids are stressed, the administration is stressed, and believe me the teachers are stressed! But of course we can’t let it show. I have to maintain an air of calm to soothe the kids. I am good at it. I didn’t hide my feelings for 23 years without getting very good at it! But I still can’t wait for the week to be over with.
I am headed out this weekend to visit one of my aunts. I haven’t seen her in nearly a year and since she is 94 years old I hate to go that long. Mollie is coming with me but not Nick. He did offer, it is a 6 hour drive, but visiting my aunt and two 80 year old cousins is not something I think he will really miss. I am happy that Mollie says she really wants to go. Having older grandparents has made her really fond of older people. My mom was 74 when Mollie was born and they were always great buddies.
Not much to report on the spanking front. All I can say is the house seem to be very full at this time. And I’ll be gone this weekend, and Nick is going off with some friends next weekend golfing. I miss him already but we will sneak in time for ourselves.
I also need to find some time to write!! There are a few thought running through my head that I really need to sort our and often the blog is the best place. But I have gotten lazy. I love reading what everyone else writes and I enjoy emailing and sometimes I let the writing slide. But I’ll get to it! Wish me luck on testing!!
