Wow, that was some meeting! Being new to it all, it was confusing with all the acronyms and I had to look silly and ask for explanation! So much going on but for sure it will give me lots of info on how things work. I took an opportunity to add the fact that I had been laid off last year on second last day, and it was interesting who came and asked me about it.

Anyway, we had an uneventful trip home with no wildlife on the road. We stopped in a little town for a bit, but nothing exciting.

So I have lots of info to pass out to everyone at school. Not much else, just lots of driving today.

And I'm tired.... off to school tomorrow to get prepped for the week... Hope everyone is resting and relaxing and taking advantage of reduced responsibilities on the weekend.

    Lila it sounds like you are becoming quite the activist in your school. The more you know about the situation, the more you can address. Take Care Pat in Maine.

On the Road Again

Saturday, October 02, 2010

Short and sweet day at school.... 3 of my kids gave me a hug before I left. They all wanted to know where I was going and who was taking care of them....

I left school at 12:15 when the kids went out for lunch. Had a safe uneventful trip, we got here at just before 5pm.
we had stopped to gas up at Lac La Biche and had A& W Uncle Burger. Here, we went for a Subway sub and then shopped at the Dollar 'Giant and Walmart and found Shoppers Drug Mart closed at 9:23. BUt I left out the big deal, we went to Lesser Slave Lake and had a really nice long walk on the beach. DH even took the camera and I expected to post a pic, but the camera had no charge and we couldn't use it. He's going to check it and see if we can get it recharged for tomorrow if that's what's wrong.

Been fighting with this wifi to get computer going for a couple hours, and I', frustrated but it is finally working, but I gotta go to bed now. Meeting at 9am

Came Away Feeling Good Today

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Had an open face rye bread egg sandwich with antipasto fro breakfast and rye and ham sandwich for lunch and supper was pork chops, with spaghetti squash and baby potatoes with edame... I ate lots of fruit today and went over a bit.

Did something tonite I have never ever done before. The TA brought me a front quarter of a deer. So, we put it in bath tub to wash and then tried to cut it up with kitchen knife and scissors. So, an hour and a half or so later, we had 2 roasts, a soup bone cooking on the stove and 2 bags of stew meat.... I hope we like it. I was surprised that dh took charge of "butchering" it...

Well, at least that kept me from eating a lot tonite! I didn't go to school tonite with the arrival of the meat. But, I leave at 12:15 tomorrow and then recess, gym,, computer class, Cree cultural class and then probably they will put on a movie, not much sense trying to expect a TA to try to teach them, because everyone is related, they really take advantage of their auntie's, so may as well make it easy on them.

Left school shortly before 4pm today - not bad considering I promised myself I would leave right away...

So, pray for travelling mercies for me as I get on the road for a 4-5 hr. trip tomorrow....

Well, I have a class of Gr. 1, 2 and 3 students all in one classroom and I have to try to teach all their curriculum to them. It is only 8 kids.... I know, in the old days... etc. etc. I don't know why I am having such a hard time with them.... Today, it seemed the whole school was in crazy mode....

But, too little to say ....

I have been in at school for 2 hours tonite and must go home... Found a Smartboard timer and saved it to my desktop so I will be able to access it in a second.... Also found my 100 chart for the smartboard and saved it to desktop too. Good thing!

there was a community spaghetti supper tonite, but I stayed home and we cooked stir fry steak with onions, peppers, mushrooms and sweet potato fries.... tomorrow we have to have the spaghetti squash I bought on the weekend, cuz it's starting to go bad already.... And on Friday, I leave here at lunchtime to go to the union meeting about 4 hours away...
Tomorrow I am on duty for a.m. recess.... and still got KP Duty"

I'm just blathering...... nothing to say, gotta head home, hope others are having a more interesting day than me.....

    Working with others is always a bit stressful. And you are working with little kids so that is a whole new ball of stress!!

You are a inspiration-you give so much and it will get paid forward or back to you. Just keep the faith you hard working woman!!

And can I come for dinner? emoticon

OK Day

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Glad to know I can always talk to my friends here. Today, was a relaxed day.... kids seemed to accomplish a lot more till I checked my plans and realized a bunch of things I hadn't done all I planned... with 3 grades, keeping them busy and out of trouble leads to that happening I guess... We started another art project.... this from a person who doesn't know how to do art.... and the kids were really eager... we're making a Fantasy Bird Wax Resistant again....

I got a better sleep last nite, but I'm still tired. I didn't go out with other teachers tonite for supper, because dh had our supper ready. I didn't go to school tonite cuz it was raining, and I had already printed off my plans, so I really wanted to do SP there and finish scanning in an art animated literacy book so I'd have it more easily accessible for the SmartBoard, got 50 scanned in so far....

Well, let's hope for a good sleep tonite..... nite all!

    Hi Lila
There seemed to be a more relaxed feeling in your writings.
I have a question. Do you have 3 different classes like gr1-2-3 and if so are they all in the same room?
It was nice that DH prepared dinner for you. I am glad that you got a better nights sleep. Hope you get another one tonight.
Thanks for sharing and hear from you tomorrow.
