To those of you who actually read my blog, thanks...I guess right now in life I'm just a little frustrated...frustrated with life, with school, with my blog, with the lack of feeling that my workshops are coming together, with writing workshop (why won't they write??? ugh!), with housework, with everything.

I think things will be better in 24 hours and I will post once my frustrated mood has disappeared...I'm almost afraid to write something for fear of what might be said.

Dude.... so with you! Last week was such a total pooper for me. I felt like I was slipping into this sad fog and blur. Nothing was coming together at school or home.I think that it's o.k. to get this way, because once the fog and pooie does clear, we have something to reflect on and see the growth-

I had so many wonderful things planned for this year. Unfortunately I planned them in the artificial days of summer where we get caught up in the books we read. I thought my class would fall into place just like Kathy Collins and Lucy said they would. Then reality. The behaviors, the routines, the LONG DAYS! The reality is that it will work out. I;m reminded of how Debbie Miller went home to her husband every october and said, "These kids will never make it, what am i doing wrong"...his response, "you say that every year". They will come around, and so will mine, because we are REFLECTIVE and PROACTIVE EDUCATORS! Keep telling yourself that :)

I'm frustrated, too..... that I didn't get to see you at WCC Sunday morning! Where were you?!!! I missed you and couldn't believe that I didn't see you!!!

Hang in there, sweet girl! Love you!

When I was in college, one of my profs told me that every October you will be consumed with doubt. She said teachers have a period of self doubt and "depression" at that time of year.

Every year I start feeling this way and then I remember that "this too shall pass".

If you didn't doubt yourself, you wouldn't be as good of a teacher as your are!

I think a massage is in order for you! Perhaps just taking time for you will give you some pep!

There must be something in the water, b/c I've been feeling the same way...minus the whole writing/students thing! LOL

It's truly been a struggle at times to just stick with "it"..."it" being everything, kids, husband, church, everything!

Hang in there, Cathy!

So with you! I can't tell you how many teachers I know that are feeling the same way. Hang in there! We will all get through this rollercoaster of life!
