thirteen things i'm doing today

Not exciting, but here it is...Maybe it will make your everyday life seem much more interesting
  1. not walking around the block at dawn's early light
  2. buying folders for my Advocacy (like homeroom) class before school starts
  3. making the folders seem like the best, most amazing tool my students have ever seen in their school careers
  4. getting these students to actually insert the items I instruct them to within 20 minutes
  5. drinking gallons of VitaminWater (<-- click!)
  6. teaching metaphors, similes, and imagery (oh my) to the most apathetic freshmen I've ever encountered (yesterday, one's lying on the table during discussion was a vast improvement over his slumping in the chair with his head down; at least his eyes were open and directed toward me)
  7. biting my tongue when one of those freshmen tries (again) to insult me with questions about my clothes, hair, glasses, or children
  8. locking my classroom door at 2:01 and blasting the 'naughty mom' playlist
  9. attaching all 89 of son's Cub Scout badges & pins to his vest before tonight's meeting
  10. some kind of dinner
  11. taking my best friends to preview the school district's 4th grade 'Human Growth & Health' movie (we'll try not to giggle throughout)
  12. having a good grown-up drink (or six)
  13. getting a decent night's sleep and thanking God for tomorrow (it's good to be grateful in advance, I've found)

Busy list but well organized...that's a teacher! And of freshmen, bless your heart, and pass the giggle fits, lol. I was intrigued by the name of your blog and wonder, what's on the naughty-mom playlist?
