Mondays.

Is there anyone who likes Monday?  I’m at work, dealing with students who are taking statewide standardized tests, and being as annoying as they can be about it.  And I’ve also got my kid in my memory, crying that she didn’t want me to go to work. 

What kind of world makes us spend most of our time away from the people who matter the most to us?  If I had my way, I’d be with my wife and daughter most of the time. 

Still dealing with the annual wait to see if I’m actually laid off or not.  I should know by my birthday (Memorial day weekend), but we’ll see.  If I am laid off, I’ll be looking for non-teaching jobs.  If I’m not, great.

    Fun! I’m what you call ‘under-employed’ so I have lost my feel for what day it is…and I’m also waiting to see if my employer is going to close. :/
    Up here in Soviet Canuckistan I can take a year to find a job (thanks to social welfare) and believe me I’ll need it. The employment situation where I live is pretty grim.
    But on the bright side, then I’ll have lots of time for family, writing and blogging.
