I decided today, after pushing mowing the lawn, which I LOVE to do, but is getting more and more difficult, that I do not HAVE to be old and weak. I can be older and wiser. It occurred to me that I could stop doing the whole yard in one day. I could do the front yard one day, and the backyard the next. I could break it in to 2 wonderful cardio workouts instead of just the one. I could get twice the enjoyment from an activity I love, that is also productive, with...

He scored a 32, and he is only a sophomore!!! Best news I've had in forever and a day! Sat, 2 May 2015 23:22:53 EST Long Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5921014 Been at work for 13 1/2 hours. Still have a few hours of work left to get done before I can go home with any kind of peace about it. Took a 30 minute break to run earlier, and have been stopping about every 15 minutes to do a few wall push-ups. All this sitting wreaks havoc on the muscles and the nerves.

Another day of testing. Another day of sitting quietly on my kiester while my students work their little brains out. It is easier than the old pencil paper method on my part. In my opinion, the only real purpose it serves is that so certain people can stick their thumbs in their ears, wiggle their fingers, and chant "Nanna nanna boo boo, my school's better than your school." <BR> <BR> Seriously.

It is an experience to say the least. I think the student's are far less stressed about it than the teacher's I work with. I love that I just have to supervise this one and not read the whole thing aloud to my students like the old test. Even with it's glitches, technology is a wonderful thing.
