So I haven't really been feeling the blog thing lately. Not sure why, though.
Stuff has been going on, good and "eh", that I could have blogged about but I just couldn't make myself do it. I felt guilty about it and all but...
So anyway...here I am.
The sock class is going well. I only have one class left and my sock actually looks like a sock. Score! It *is* a little tedious though, so I am making a shawl as well. When I have had enough of the sock I put it down and do a few rows on the shawl. It helps keep me sane and also keeps me from throwing the sock across the room.
The weather has, I think, finally turned the corner from cold to warm. This pleases me a great deal for I loathe, yea even despise, the cold. The patio furniture is out, the tank-top is on, and we have made the switch from shoes to SANDALS!!!!!
I'm not feeling so good about the state of my country. The tragedy at Sandy Hook affected me, not because I knew anyone there, but because I am a teacher. I have students that I adore. I can't imagine losing any one of them. Now with this awful situation in Boston...I don't understand how a human being can be so full of hate and rage. There are things I don't like and people I don't agree with but I can't imagine having so much hatred in my heart as to inflict physical harm on someone. I am so sad about what is happening.
I am also not feeling so good about the end of the year. It was bad last year and that was with knowing that there was a chance I would have the same kids again. I KNOW that I am not moving up with them next year and it is about killing me. I have taught many classes in the last many year and this class is, by far, the best class I have ever had and also my favorite. I am going to miss them horribly.
I know this isn't long but I am going to go now. I will be back again soon so please do go anywhere.
