Today I am crabby. Seriously crabby. And easily annoyed. Which is a problem when you teach middle school, as the population on the whole tends toward the annoying. I hear you saying "But it's the last day, Katie. Shouldn't you be filled with joy?" Anyone who asked that has never taught school the week before a major break. And I will be filled with joy. This afternoon, as soon as the bell rings.
I love my job. I really, really love my kids. It's just that today, I'm having a little trouble mustering the happy. Pray for me, people. It's going to be a long "short" day.
