Day 6 - oh no!

March 6, 2020

My positive thinking tank is apparently pretty low right now. You know how I realized this?

I saw this today and I immediately cringed. I immediately started thinking that I’d like to just skip out of next week.

You see, my class this year is hard. It’s harder than normal. It’s a collection of kids with baggage of various sorts. It’s a group that is harder than it “should” be on the best of days.

So today this slice is short because I’m already tired from next week and it’s all I have left in the tank today.


  1. I cringed and made a goofy face as I read this. Those three things should NEVER happen in the same week! Rest up.

  2. Ha. I would just have never made this realization. Extra armor next week!

  3. Oh no no no no no no...
    It is a trifecta and just doesn't sound fair for anyone. It's moments like these that I think, what can I possibly do to combat these evils? The time change one is an especially challenging one. Yikes!

  4. We definitely need the weekend to reset for a full moon and Friday the 13th! I have a class that sounds a bit like yours. 26 students and so many stories in the mix- many of them very sad. Take good care of yourself this weekend and be extra loving to yourself so you can fuel up that tank.

  5. Yikes! Here I was dreading the time change without any knowledge of just how bad it was going to get. I'm going to have to stock up on patience.

  6. Oh dear... I appreciate the honesty in your slice. I can also relate. Thank you for sharing.
