Wednesday wahooooooo

It's finally Wednesday and I have made it through hump day. Now we're on the other side of the hill rolling towards the weekend. Wahoooooo. That makes me happy.

I will say that I seem to be getting back into the swing of things. I'm able to fly by the seat of my pants more. I'm able to say for the tenth time, "Put your science book on top of your desk." I can even sometimes do this without wishing harm on anyone. That's a move in the right direction.

I can get through math class with the TA and the Special Ed teacher in the room to save me from pulling a math kamikaze run. I hand out pencils without expecting to get them back. Then I do it again the next day.

I can keep track of who owes me what homework, mostly.

I can even sometimes crack a smile and send out a bit of sarcasm to the others who work in the room. Sometimes we all smile. It gives me hope.

Next week is a four-day week with Friday off. I have a half-day workshop in the morning on Thursday. I think I also have a half-day workshop on Wednesday to learn how to use the SMART board that isn't in my room yet. (It is in everyone else's room in fifth grade.)

These are small victories but I will claim them.

Be amazed that you can manage teaching (one of the most difficult and undervalued vocations in the world) AND having MS.

I am.
