Umm. hmm. So five weeks of teaching are over. Entertaining moments in the week were the chalkboard eraser fight and one girl's mistake of confusing staph and yeast infection..... more on that in a bit. Course, there was also the lovely fact that not fifty percent of my students turned in their projects on time--simple projects of plotting points that had been assigned two weeks before...
and hearing the news of Hands on a Hardbody and the next day, N.O. student evacuee problems at Longview H.S. and the County Fair.
So there's apparently a staph infection going around at PTHS and since I have students who take classes there, they've all become aware so as supposedly to be more cautious and wash hands and such. Well, this girl is telling me how the day before another student had been using my stapler on his arm and she goes "he shouldn't do that! he could get a yeast infection." Needless to say, I had to stop comments from being said that were inappropriate and not back to math oriented.
I couldn't help laughing.
Today I drove down to a baby shower for my next future niece of nephew. It was mostly a lovely two hour drive each way and I was glad I went. and other than becoming rather angry at a slower driver or two (really, 55-60 in a 70?, red light running? swerving over two lanes?), it was nice and it was good to see my very pregnant sister-in-law. My brother went fishing with the husbands of the ladies who hosted the shower.
Last night we saw "Lord of War" and I ended up thinking it was good. A bit intense in spots. and it was nice to sit back and enjoy a movie after doing laundry, shopping for groceries, and baking chocolate chip cookies.
Enough said for now.Posted by Anna at September 18, 2005 09:12 PM | TrackBack
