Is the winter over yet? No? Okay then, have some soup!

Is the winter over yet? No? Okay then, have some soup!

Well. 

It's Monday. And it was not a good Monday. Bah. I have two pretty awesome classes, and one disaster of a class. I just can't. I mean I can. But I have tried a lot of things. But it has only been a couple weeks. So I will just have to keep trying. I cannot even explain all the needs in this classroom. It is like nothing I have ever encountered before. I am trying to avoid a meltdown and I don't even know whose. Maybe mine. Maybe theirs? Who knows. Can't let them know they are getting to me. Well I am sure they know. I feel the worst for the sweet quiet kids who are watching the chaos. Man. I love being a teacher, but this class has me feeling like not the best one. Which sucks. I usually feel like I am pretty good at what I do. But try and try again. I am sure we can come to some kind of normal that works for us as a group. I hope. Oh please let it happen. Otherwise this is going to be one heck of a semester. Building character. Oh lord I hope they never find this....

So basically I am grumpy...and cold. 

I had pancakes for dinner - BUT I also needed a little dose of dense nutrition so I whipped up this squash soup to make sure at least some of my needs were being met.
