Today has been a pretty crappy day, all around. School was just OK, had a little problem with a student during 4th bell today and he had to be removed. He told me more than once that he didn’t have to listen to me; I am not a real teacher; and he didn’t care what I said… This was all because I asked him to sit quietly while others were working. It almost brought me to tears. Not because I took what he was saying personally, but because it seems such a daunting task to hear these things every day from students who have no reason to speak to an adult this way. I feel that any breath I waste arguing with a child like this would be just that…. A waste of breath. And energy.
My sister-in-law, Lynzie and her husband, Brandon had their house robbed today. They have a precious Chihuahua, Pixie, who was thankfully okay. The thieves took a bunch of very valuable things, and they are devastated. It doesn’t seem fair and I feel so helpless for them. I wish there was something I could do. I think that this has been going on lately on their street, but it’s still unexpected and terrible to experience. Hopefully, insurance will bring them some restitution. I just hope this can be resolved. I just don't understand why people think it's okay to take what isn't theirs!!
Lastly, I just heard that my Dad got into a pretty bad accident. When I spoke to my mom she said she was on her way to where he is, and that I should stay where I am. They are going to call me when they get there and know something, but I am hoping that he isn’t hurt.
Send good thoughts and prayers my way, please.
