Life is Grand - Life is Large

It is very spring here. Pollen everywhere. Light green everywhere else.

Busy week at work - I was observed teaching today -

I prepared a great lesson, technology dependent - and when I got to work, the computer would not communicate correctly with the Promethean board (type of interactive white board).

I went to one teacher a borrowed a new connector.

That did not work, so I went to another teacher and told her I needed help. (It is hard for me to ask for help, but I had to get the technology working.)

She disconnected all the wires and restarted the computer and it worked.

I did all those things, but not in the same order.

That was before the day even started, but it all worked out okay.

I survived the observation. Yee haw! Dodged another bullet ;-)

Wrote 2 reports today for 2 meetings tomorrow. Two more meetings on Thursday - reports for those, too, need to be done. And another one Friday - that report is already written, but not the goals. I have not written the goals for any of the meetings.

Sheesh I better get on that.

Deep sigh.

And then Spring Break!

I am so grateful!!!!!

Yard work, house training P'Headro, my birthday, Easter.........

So that's my projected two weeks in a nutshell.

What 'cha got planned?


  1. Thanks for following me.
    Your blog rocks!

  2. I have been doing my job for years, but I still get a little nervous when I am being officially "observed". Not surprised you got through it :-)

    I hope you get to fully enjoy your Spring break. It always seems like such a tease, that week...the hint of summer to come.

  3. Ted - No, thank you!

    Laura - Thanks to you, too! I am sure I will enjoy my break - I will not have any work work to do. Yay! I am still feeling squeezed - 2 meetings tomorrow that I am not really ready for - not at all. Boo hoo for me.

    Pamela - I'm not even sure if it's a mouse......

    Thanks to all who visited!!!!!

  4. Oooh...I hate observation. Its attached firmly to Murphy's Law. Congratulations that you made it through... though I had no doubts you would.

    Happy Birthday my dear friend! Happy Easter! Happy vacation! You will have to email me tons so that I am not crying in my beer alone... missing my spring break past.

  5. Ananda - Thanks for all the well wishes!

    I will email everyday - and probably post, too!

    (Somehow life gets in the way of my posting creativity....)

  6. It would make me nervous for someone to watch me all day at work, glad you got through it alright.

  7. It is a nerve-wracking thing, but it only lasts a short time. She writes down everything I say. So I try to keep it brief and to the point.
