I have this piece of silk that my mom brought me from China over a year ago that I've been meaning to use. I just haven't gotten around to it. Well, today is the day! I am going to cut out the pieces tonight and sew it together tomorrow morning. Just see if I don't.

Only four days of work left! I am enjoying playing with the babies, but I feel like I end up with the 2/3 s really often. Not my favorite age group. They hit and pinch each other and I don't like it. Sometimes I wonder if the other teachers are really lax about that kind of thing, or if I'm overly strict. I often feel like I would put a kid on time out when the regular teachers just let things slide with a verbal "that's not o.k." On the other hand, there are a lot of things that they don't let the kids do, that I would. Climbing on boxes or running around the playground for example. Am I just a weirdo? Do I have unrealistic expectations? All I know is if I'm overly strict, my parents were downright mean! Oh well. Four days to go.

is it a terrible thing that I am totally thinking about being DM when I read this? yar.

I'm really not that fond of kids. *sigh*, when I think about it it's really no wonder that I had no friends in elementary school and didn't have any close friends in middle school. No one was even worth being friends with anyways! I was too busy dealing with boys who were way too physically active and violent, and little girls who just wanted to tease you and steal your hat and take your food. Remember when you had the nightmare that you had to do high school again? Well =I= miss high school. I wouldn't mind doing it again (though I might look into changing a few minor things). But doing elementary school again? Man, that seems like it would suck! Nothing interesting ever happened =there=! Granted, I got a great deal of thinking done. I tell you, when you spend every single recess and lunch break by yourself wandering around on the playground, you can get a lot of thinking done!
