First, the Stuff:
I am finally going to break down and purchase a license from DJ Inkers. My focus walls are being requested like wildfire and I have been giving them away for free. I love free and I will always offer free, but these focus walls (you know if you have them) are the bomb, diggity, bomb. They took me a whole summer due to the research and permissions and stuff that I had to get. So as of today, I am going to sell them (once I get that license). Do you think I am being greedy (Farley's Pet Peeve)? Please be honest and give me your thoughts.
Now on to Currently:
Thinking: I am part of a pilot Master's Certificate Program in Math. I was over the moon when I was accepted and even happier when I found out that my district would contribute to the fees. I am almost finished with the 5 required classes, but I think I have worked harder on this than I did on my entire Master's in Reading. I HATE math, there...I said it. I wish I was a math person, but I am not. This is part of the reason why I took this on. I thought there would be a slight chance that I could fall in love with numbers. I haven't. This is supposed to be about learning how to teach math to K-5, but let me just say, I don't think any elementary students will ever need to know some of the stuff I am doing. Anyhoo, there is a lot of writing, which I love. So the happy medium is I get to write about teaching math, while trying to calculate these equations that haunted me in high school. I have 3 papers due next week, so I am still thinking about starting at least one of them!
Needing: I have given up on cleaning. I am talking about full on hyperintensive cleaning of my house every single week. I clean the obvious: bathrooms, kitchen, laundry, and making the beds. The floors get swept and mopped periodically, but I don't stress anymore. Until today. What is going on in my shower? I clean it every week, but apparently someone has dyed their hair and the dye has glued itself to the grout. I am not calling out names (HUSBAND), but um, what were you thinking? I didn't see it because I don't take a shower with my glasses on, so things are a bit blurry, lol. I walked into the bathroom this morning with my classes on and almost died! It is gross. It will not be gross by the time I go to sleep tonight. If you have any tips on how to keep shower doors and grout clean, pass it on people. I am desperate.
Pet Peeves: There isn't much to explain. Don't lie to me, it is as simple as that. I will forgive you, but I will never ever forget and what we once had is gone. I will not trust you...ever...again.
