Skating on thin ice.

Ever had those days where it seems as though you JUST manage to scrape through them by your fingertips?

Today was one of those days.

It wasn't a bad day. It wasn't a great day. It wasn't even an average day. It was just sort of somewhere around the middle. And left me longing for three o'clock so I could just up and run out of there!

I had no aide for D. today, because everyone was involved in the seniors athletics. The morning went smoothly, the middle session went a bit haywire, but turned out okay. I narrowly avoided a meltdown by stopping in the middle of a conversation and deciding to take the kids outside in the sunshine to watch the teacher-kids relay races. That was a smart move, if I do say so myself.

Maybe it's still having the left-overs of the evil cold, but I'm feeling like my patience is a bit off at the moment.

Most of my kids are amazing, and so clever - but sometimes, I let the silliest things annoy me. Makes me feel bad, but I can't help it. A little boy snapped my ruler in half today and the look on my face freaked him out. Ack. I'm not a mean teacher, at least I hope not, but I think I'll have to watch myself until this "not quite myself" feeling disappears.

I hope it's soon.

And I hope that D. has his aide back tomorrow!
