I was up half the night with a sick child last night and had a full day of work today. To say I'm tired is a gross understatement. My well feels dry today. I'm not feeling inspired to do anything but take a nap. It seems like a good time to try out a strategy that I saw Shari use in her slice yesterday here at Islands of My Soul. She's a first time SOLC participant...go ahead...go read her slice first and share some comment love. Come back when you are done...I'll wait... :)
Here is my sleep deprived attempt at 5 Bullet Thursday!
Song on my mind: Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust" - this is my friend's theme song and I feel like it is so fitting. It can be applied to my situation last night (sick again, bed changed, kid cleaned up - another one bites the dust) or at school today (assessment time, pull over a child, give test - another one bites the dust).
Quote on my mind: "Writing floats on a sea of talk." I'm not sure where this originated but my writing guru says it a lot. It's always rattling around in my head, especially in times like now when I am introducing a new skill or new genre of writing to my kindergarten students.
One thing I wish I was better at this week: Getting my assessments finished for conferences which start next week. It's been one thing after another...snow days, math trainings, sick kids, etc. I just feel like I'm treading water instead of making the progress that I need to be making. Tomorrow's a new day!
Best thing I've eaten this week: Raspberry bread with cinnamon topping. My daughter's babysitter met me at the door this morning with a container and a fork. She'd made this deliciousness this morning and was giving a container to each mom this morning as we dropped off our kiddos. She's just simply amazing!
My wonder of the week: I wonder if all of my families will show up for their parent teacher conferences next week. There is one family I have yet to meet this year. They haven't ever come for anything, they wait in the office on the rare occasion that they pick her up early, they don't answer phone/email/notes home.
