I love impending sinus infections..

My current facebook status: "i love impending sinus infections, comcast, and grading. In no particular order"

Very aware that this [and 95% of my blog posts] are not grammatically correct. I'm okay with it, and I hope that you are, too.

I really hope I'm okay to go in tomorrow. Ugh. I have chronic sinus infections, but when I go to the doctor, they give me antibiotics and send me on my way. I feel like there is an underlying problem. But no one listens to me. Shocker. The doctors must be on the same wave length as my students have been lately.

As for Comcast, let's just say I've been on the phone with them three times tonight, and I still can't watch my DVRed Bachelor. And my cable will probably go out within the hour. I need to go to Comcast and exchange my box. UGH. I know, not a big deal. It's just that my current mood is magnifying this situation. The customer service girl I talked to the second time was so nice. She kept apologizing. I kept saying it's fine. I know it's not her fault that I can't watch Ben. I guess she gets yelled at a lot.

*Side note: Does anyone else read Reality Steve's spoilers of the Bachelor?

And my last gripe is my grading. I don't have a lot to grade. But I hate grading multiplication facts! Over the course of the mult/div unit, I progress monitored the students [not timed] with 100 problems, just to see where they are. Such a pain to grade, but my standards say they need to be fluent! So I want to give them as much practice as possible, both timed and not time.

Anyway, sorry for the downer-ish post! I changed my layout to another free one. Does it look alright on all of your computers? Please let me know if it looks funky so I can fix!


  1. I HATE grading 100 fact multiplication tests. I graded all sorts of stuff this weekend and avoided those. haha. =)

  2. I love the font for your blog name and the titles of your posts! Super cute.

    I also hated grading my addition timed tests, so I was happy when I found XtraMath! It does it for you! If you haven't looked into it, you should. :)

  3. Three things:

    I have a mac and I love your background- the red is so vibrant.

    I hate calling people, too. It always seems like a waay bigger deal than it should be. A car bumped into my car the other day, and I have to schedule a time to go take it to get it fixed (totally covered by insurance!) and I'm worried I'll need a rental car, and I'm just toooooo lazy to do it.

    Don't worry about the Debbie Downer post. Mine have been that way for a week and a half.

  4. Ugh I completely agree with you on the sinus infection thing. No matter what I do, I get them every year and even thought they give me antibiotics they seem to come back! The dr even told me the only time he ever sees me is for sinus infections. Hope you feel better!

  5. Awww, I hope you feel better soon!! My dad has a lot of problems with sinus infections, and he has a TERRIBLE one right now :( I know how awful those things can be. I too have Comcast...so I feel your pain there also. I think your new design is reallllly cute, I really like the font :) I think this time of year everyone is feeling pretty down about a lot of things. January is just a blah month!! Hang in there!!


  6. Hope you're feeling better!! I love your new design! It looks great! Just had to stop by and let you know that I had some fun shopping at TpT! I've gotten three things so far, and I'm excited to go find some more good things! :) Thanks again for your great giveaway! Feel better!
