We are sorta kinda having fall weather! We opened up our windows and I actually got a little chilly in my own house (I usually get chilly in my own house, but it costs me money, what with the big ole electricity bill and all) which was so nice! We also slept with our windows open all night until I was woken up by a little kid outside my window. Well, he wasn’t right outside my window because I sleep on the second floor, but it sure felt like he put a ladder next to my window and climbed on up. Or maybe he was on a trampoline and yelling into my room each time he bounced up. Either way, I didn’t invite him over and I don’t know how he got in my backyard. The hubs says he wasn’t actually in the backyard, but I’m telling you, the sound was thisclose.
I slammed that window shut for all it was worth.
Yes, I teach. Yes, I love kids.
Just not on a Saturday morning, is all. I’m sure you understand.
There was nothing to do except get up and have some coffee. And a bagel.
And while doing that, I played around with Pinterest.
Pinterest scares me.
Is that crazy?
I get on there and I mostly want to eat all the food I see, buy clothes that I have no clue about, nor where to actually get them, make my hair do impossible things that it won’t ever do, and make crafty things that I do not have the supplies you’re supposed to have just “lying around your house” to be made into something cute.
But I do get attached and drawn in with classroom Pinterest things. Ideas, bulletin boards, art projects, classroom management, and all that good stuff . . . I feel like I can handle most of that (except for the crafty, teachery things which also make me feel inadequate because, again, I don’t have those nifty, little, regular, old supplies that when put together make a magical new item to be used in the classroom. I mean, really. Who has fishing line just hanging out in the laundry room? I don’t. And, if I did, I’d be yelling at the hubs for not taking it out of his pants in the first place, and oh, by the way, when in the world did you go fishing?!).
I did have a Pinterest account under my name.
I didn’t do anything with it.
Now, I have a Pinterest account with my Teeny name.
Got it all set up.
Followed some bloggers.
And now I’m going to spend the rest of the day pinning things and making wonderful teacher boards instead of doing my report cards. It’s all about priorities. I imagine I’ll come across some really terrific report card comments in my pinning adventures. In that way, what really seems like a report card delay is more like hard core research.
How does that sound? Is that a good enough spin?
Anywho, I haven’t really pinned anything yet so this might sound silly . . . but if you think you might want to follow my future pins and endeavors (and even the crafty pins that I will pin to make myself look good, but which we’ll all know are just there for looks), look me up!
I’m also trying to follow other teachers so let me know how to find you!
I’m off to pin.
I mean, research.
I’ve got a full day ahead of me.
No rest for the weary . . .
