Over the adrenolin

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Just realized that I haven't posted here in a while. I finished the radiation treatments last week, and the exhaustion finally hit me. Also, we decided to sell our house and move to a new one. I keep telling myself that the short term pain is worth it, but hard to believe when you are in the middle of it. Anyway, all of the tiredness I didn't have during treatments seems to have hit me now. :( And I have a full day of babysitting seniors while the other grades test, again. This is the second week since I've been back at work that I haven't seen some of my classes for a full week. Once they have past their tests, it seems we no longer want to educate them. And then, there are ridiculous justifications about how little I could really teach them in the last 6 weeks, or last semester, or last year. Maybe we should just graduate them the moment they get their passing scores. Sorry, just a little grumpy. I really hate testing.

    I do not understand all the standardized testing. We didn't have that when going to school and we turned out fine, can read, do math, understand geography and economics and civics and science. We pour hundreds of millions of dollars into "education" and turn out students who can't read or even make simple change unless a cash register tells them how much to give back. Something's wrong here. emoticon -- Lou

    Be gentle on yourself! You are so special and you are so needed! You might not be able to have big rests or other reinvigorating moments, but you can sneak the odd precious deep breath, short walk in the sunshine, etc. And through all your challenges, remember to give your body healthy treats that will remind it that you care! Remember, too, that there are people all around you (close by and online) who want to help you with your challenges!

Love and hugs to you!

    I too hate testing and there is a lot to be said about their attitudes. We see it in our 8th graders during the last marking period - they think we are wasting their time and they are just marking time until they get out of our school. I love to see them about 6 months from now though, when the realities of HIGH SCHOOL hit them - they realize how much easier it was here - they seniors who go off to college experience much the same reactions when they hit their first semester of college. "Mommy *teachers* we wanna come home - it was better and you were nicer"

    That's perfectly normal about the radiation. That's the way it hit me, too, with the exhaustion. Just try to take it easy and let your body start to heal itself. You likely won't have the energy to do too much for a week or so.
