out of sorts, off my game

Today was blech. I don't know how else to say it, and I certainly couldn't figure out what to do about it.

How did I hate it? Let me count the ways:
  1. Jabba the Hutt-like pile of sheets & towels lurking in our bedroom corner
  2. Left students' work to be entered for progress reports at home this morning
  3. Dumb DJ talk & ads on the radio all the way to work
  4. None of my car CDs made my heart sing
  5. Forgot to bring lunch
  6. Horrible burning/dead creature smell in the downstairs hallway at school
  7. Most of the students with missing work spent entire class periods continuing to do nothing
  8. Grocery store hottie still completely bad at delightful small talk
  9. Forgot to bring receipts for reimbursement to PTA meeting
  10. No time to talk with my good friend after PTA meeting
  11. No interesting or engaging lesson plans are leaping from my brain

Good stuff (or, me being a Ray of F*cking Sunshine):

  1. Stu washed all of those sheets & towels for me this weekend
  2. I don't have to actually enter grades until Wednesday (really not until Thursday, but I'm tricking my mind so I'm not up until 3 am again; shhhhh)
  3. Kept my finger busy trying to find a suitable station
  4. I forgot about the Juno soundtrack; am smiling now thinking about it
  5. Chicken stew still in teacher's lounge fridge, and edible
  6. Stench was gone before I got a debilitating headache
  7. Repeated my Love & Logic mantra [Not my problem, Not my problem] and proceeded to not strangle any students
  8. He's still nice to look at; I'll just stop torturing myself and go through someone else's line from now on
  9. Tomorrow is another day to track down the Treasurer
  10. Will corral Lisa later this week for tea & chatting
  11. God is good; I'll pray harder

Hey, Happy Monday!
