TGIF. This was one of those weeks that didn’t seem like it was going to end. First, we had a tragic and shocking homicide in our usually quiet community on Wednesday, someone who had worked at our school for many years before retiring a few years ago. Someone who was very much loved.
Couple that with three long, extended days teaching 2.5 hour Weblogs and RSS classes to a willing but spent group of teachers who had been dealing with all sorts of stuff this week, and, well, you get the picture. The only thing that saved me yesterday was when we talked about RSS search feeds. That whole concept still gives teachers a jolt. Bloglines added about 15 new accounts yesterday.
So, I’m looking forward to going home and teaching my kids the right way to rake leaves, and then getting buried in the piles for at least a half an hour. Probably more. Maybe sit outside tonight with a jacket on and count stars. (Mid 40s tonight.) Maybe even fall asleep in front of a fire (after, or maybe during, the debates, of course.)
