I got to school today a little before 8am and left a little after 10pm, after baseball practice and then the school play.
I offered extra credit for attending the school play, and saw several of my 9th graders there. Jonathan caught up with me afterwards, grinning and telling me that it was 10pm and he could not possibly finish his homework for tomorrow. I told him that I didn't have any sympathy, that I was going home and writing his lesson for him.
I just need about five minutes to not think about school, though. I had a bowl of Cinnamon Life for dinner, checked out the Detroit Tigers Forum and MLBTradeRumors.com on the ol' Internets, and now I'm thinking about getting it together. I'm pretty tired, though. I've not been able to sleep lately - last night, I literally just laid there until I gave up and read an entire novel in one sitting in the middle of the night. (Okay, so it was a young adult novel - Black and White by Paul Volponi - and it took me just an hour and a half.) My mind is racing all the time lately; baseball practice and putting the team together has been eating up all my thougth processes, it seems. My classes have been pretty chill this week, so I don't think it's that; I really enjoyed how the miniature literature review we did with criticism of Morrison's Song of Solomon went with my Juniors, and my 9th graders are charming me in different ways every day (except for period 4/5... oy).
Okay, on to my lesson.
