By the Numbers

Stealing this numbers post idea from some of my blog buds...

105,005: Total number of miles turned on my car speedometer when I arrived at work this morning.

$700: Amount we'll owe out of pocket for Emma's recommended dental work. (Including a cap for her chipped tooth and additional cavity fillings. Sighs. I feel like Mother of the Year. Not.)

100: Number of 8th graders I'm helping chaperone on the field trip to Universal Studios Islands of Adventures. (Crossing fingers that we have tickets to the park with the new Harry Potter stuff....but I think HP is in the other park.)

95: Degrees Fahrenheit when we were at Magic Kingdom last week. It was by far the hottest and most crowded time we've ever been to Disney before. I'm grateful we live close enough we can visit on off-season times, as it was super-duper hot. In the late afternoon, Em said, "Can we go back to the hotel and watch TV?" because she was super tired and overheated. We did end up leaving early and swimming at our hotel by 9 p.m. It was still a nice weekend getaway.

76: Number of times I've thought about blogging in the past few weeks. Sometimes I'm super busy. Other times I feel I have nothing worthy of blogging about....thus I consider posting and don't.

13: Number of school days left for students.

12: Number of classes I am now responsible for grades and attendance for. This tally is 6 higher than my number the rest of the year, due to one of my colleagues resigning from the county last week. A long-term sub has covered his position for the remainder of the school year, but Yours Truly is stuck with keying in grades and attendance.

6th: The grade I'll be teaching next year. (I'm switching to 6th from 8th...and am eager for the change!)

4: Total days left until the end of the year celebration at Em's pre-school.

2: Number of mini classroom libraries I won at an end of the year reading celebration yesterday. Sweet!

0: The amount of energy I have left after this week of end of the year reviews in preparation for next week's final exams for my students. Sighs.

Wow... such a busy time for you and yours!

I guess I didn't realize how big of a chip that was in Em's tooth... in my experience, dentists don't normally go to such lengths for a baby tooth.

I hope that you are able to enjoy the trip to Universal... 100 8th graders will certainly make it interesting.

Praying that you have the energy you need to get through the end of the school year.

Wow -- 100 kids! Hope it goes well.

Good luck with the end of the school year. I know what a busy time it is!

You are not a bad Mummy. The main thing is that you are getting her the dental work that she needs. Ouch, $700!! 76 is about the amount of times I think of blogging too. It is hard sometimes to write a complete post, isn't it!!? Thinking of you...

sounds like you have an exciting year next year.

By now, you should be just about done... if not done already. Yeah for you!!!

And holy chaperoning. I don't know if it would be the kids or the temperature that would put me over the edge, but I give you HUGE props!
