Life is better today. Can't tell you what changed, but things are okay. A dose of Finding Nemo, some venting and promise of a best friend visit certainly helped. Extreme heat causing lethargic students was an added benefit. We played math vocab hang man (my way of bringing literacy into the math classroom) with most of the lights off - that was a relaxing end to the day.
Its good to be back to calm and happy. I like it here.
