If you have seen my sanity please return it promptly.

October 22, 2009

I swear I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, but at this point I wouldn't mind doing so. I've just had problems with the apparently usual first year teacher junk. Up until today I held strong and did well though. After a little event yesterday I wasn't in the mood for anything today, so getting observed was not my cup of tea. I might have done better but the timing of the observation was bad, plus on test days I play classical music to ease test anxiety(plus it has been shown to improve brain function and yada yada)...well anyway after my observer left the room and chaos ensued again and at that very moment "Fur Elise" started playing on my computer. You may think okay no big deal right, well that song was the whole reason Nanny learned to play piano, and at that point I couldn't help it, I just cried. Needless to say I picked the wrong class to do it in. I am almost positive crying in class will come back on me, just like everything else.  

But there is good news this week. My advisor approved me to move to south Louisiana, so that means Jeremy can go to Nichols and there is nothing to worry about except finding a job for me and a place to live. Huge sigh of relief. Just pray Jeremy gets into graduate school there.

Tomorrow I'm planning to do a big post about Sunday lunch and our little pumpkin carving party. Good thing I took pictures cause those little pumpkins are rotting their hollow heads out. 

Hope you all have a great Friday. Don't forget to enter the giveaway, it ends on Halloween!


  1. Sorry you had a rough day.
    Remind J. to talk to me before and to use my name when he interviews with Nichols. I am acquainted with the head of the program (I'll see him in a couple of weeks) as well as another professor in the program.

  2. Aww I'm sorry Em :)

    And sad you get to leave this place and I don't! hehehe

  3. Hey Em, in response to returning your sanity--if I see any flying by I am claiming it for myself. haha

    When the tears come, and they will, remember you have a special angel watching over you now.
