Frustrations and Freedoms

It is too late in the school year to be this annoyed.  This morning has been a series of complaints and redirection.  I get it.  We’re all tired.  Test prep kills us all.  The weeks after the EOC should be easy-coasting and fun, which is why I gave a project rather than jumping right back into traditional stuff.  And yet.  Phones are out.  Folders are neglected.  Volume is out of hand.  Structure and routines are forgotten.  This will just not do.

There are so many things up in the air right now as far as next year’s calendar goes.  When will the kids start school?  Will we be starting in July if they start in August?  What does that mean for off days throughout the first semester?  When will the school year end?  So many questions, so little/such vague answers.  And there’s really no point in even worrying about it because there’s not much we can do about it anyway. But worry I will because the uncertainty kills me.  I need set dates!!!
