What ungodly hour do you call this?

The hour when I almost leave for work every Saturday


bleugh


Can't wait until tonight when my day is done and DH has cooked me a roast for dinner, and i'll get a dvd on the way home

Think my alarm woke my cat up too and he didn't appreciate it, as I went to pat him and he took a swipe at me, taking a little bit of skin as a souvenir


Does anybody else ever look at a work that is spelled right but just looks wrong? English is annoying... (which English though? The English English or the American English? LOL)

Saturday morning and I need to clean the house. Any chance that Aldi has a slow cleaner instead of a slow cooker?


On second thoughts, I need a fast cleaner instead.

Just on 5 hours for me After a week of unpaid prac with Kindy, I'm buggered and the last thing I wanted to do was to work today! But money, money, money!

Seven days down out of my nineteen day prac

Yesterday was the athletics carnival and one of my poor kinder kids had a breakdown in the middle of a race. The five years girls were doing the 70 meter race when Miss K lost her shoe and burst into tears Poor darling, my teacher & I calmed her down, tied her shoelaces properly and then held her hands and ran with her in the five years boys race Great way to start the morning, seeing three 5 year old boys run faster then us

But I realllllly want to skip next week....start Tuesday morning with a THEOLOGY exam dreading that BIG time even though I have the questions and get to take my textbook in, our poor lecturer took pity on us but still going over my head and don't know why I need to know the content to teach in a Catholic school

Then I start Wednesday morning with an hour long lesson to be watched by my university supervisor, then have recess and have another hour long lesson watched by my university supervisor which is a team teaching lesson (so two classes together with two teachers, the other one is another prac student )

Go onto Thursday and I have another exam in the afternoon but at last its a multiple choice PDHPE exam and that will be my last EVER UNI EXAM

Friday will be good though, back with my kindy's and we have a mass we're running for the whole school that takes all morning so everyone will be watching how cute they are

Plus 131 sleeps to go!!!

good luck for your exams.....and enjoy the LAST feeling. Who knows? You might miss it all and decide to go do another degree in a couple of years or so.

good luck sam - i remember thinking after my last exam, i'd burn my textbooks, but the practical side of me that hates the idea of burning any kind of book took over (and i was like, omg, i paid how much for that book? no way i'm trashing it!!) i still have some of mine... but that awesome feeling of 'IT'S FINALLY OVER' should be treasured for a long time to come

we're at 168 days ourselves... i've set up a calendar reminder on my phone every 10 days until we leave i love countdowns
