Well, Gigi (Kludgy Mom) is still busy with her back to school blogging (which you should check out because it's a great idea for those who have MORE time now that school is back in session...that would not be me), so to link up to the Flip-offs we are headed over to the lovely Momma Kiss's place today....
1. I am first flipping off this new sleep schedule I am apparently on. I have gone from getting and average of 9 hours of sleep (my bare minimum for survival during the day) to getting hardly 6 hours. This is not good. I spend WAY too much time on twitter (you all are addicting. did you know this? Quit signing on and being all entertaining at my bedtime. ahem). Something is going to have to give. This morning I almost drove off the road on my way into work because my eyes wanted to close out of sheer exhaustion. So a big finger-wagging flip-off to lack of sleep.
2. In connection to that I am also flipping off my crappy time management skills as of late. I am getting stuff done, but I am tired. And I am skipping things like breakfast. Not good. Flip-off.
3. As much as I love my job, my class sizes are getting ridiculous. I have 36 desks in my classroom and my largest two classes are at 37. I have been trying not to complain since I know there is a freshman English class with 49 students right now and they have kids sitting on the floor in between desk rows. But these large class sizes? Are no good for student achievement let alone classroom management. Hopefully we get some teachers called off the lay-off list and the schedules figured out soon. Until then? Flip-off!
4. Ok, this one is a little embarrassing, but it's been driving me nuts. I REALLY need to get in to my stylist (my cousin) and get my hair dyed and get my eyebrows waxed. Gray hairs are sprouting out of my 32 year-young head and dark hairs are growing where I don't want them on my face. I hate all the maintenance of being an adult woman! I have shrubs growing above my eyes! And also? What is with the random chin hairs!?!? So for all the care and time I have to put in to making the hair on my dome look good (or go away, depending on its location), I say FLIP OFF!
WHEW! That felt pretty good.
Now it's your turn. What are you flipping off this week?
