Today in co-op, I learned the procedure for "substitute teachers". We had a lady out because her son was sick. It was very smooth. These ladies have thought of everything. I am benefitting from years of experience. I am glad I didn't have to start it. I fully appreciate them all.
I had some tense moments with my middle child today. She was soooo disrespectful when I was teaching Botany as a "sub" and art as the teacher. I wanted to throttle her. We have had many lectures. M.A.N.Y. She has been such a dream student in other classes which means nothing to me if she starts sporting a 'tude. We got no patience for 'tudes. 'Tudes are why we homeschool(reason #37). I hope the "attitude adjustment" has put her in proper perspective...and the "I brought you into this co-op and I can take you out" speech.
So the end of my day was kind of high stress. As are the end of all my days until the end of my days, I suppose. Some day I will look back on all of this and miss it. Seems impossible. I probably won't miss the 'tude days. I will miss the polite and respectful behavior since lecture #5, it has been above and beyond and I am thankful.
Church tonight and pampered chef party tomorrow night. YEAH!!! A party. I love my job and the temporary separation it affords me from the day to day. I hope I sell a million dollars worth of PC products as this is a fund-raiser for a good friend's daughter to have the ultimate field trip in the UK and Ireland. Let me know if you need anything-I can ship anywhere!
Also, I need to rant a little that my good friend moved to Abilene which is way south and is enjoying SNOW while we just got incredibly cold weather. Totally unfair. Isn't Texas supposed to be hot and dry, not cold and snowy. Do Texans even own a coat? Steph, mail us a snowball-ok!!
Hope you have a great church service or family night, whichever the case may be.
