There really is nothing a good solid 3 hours to set you RIGHT up for your day, is there? Especially when your day consists of wrangling 4th graders and staff meetings. Oh God kill me now.
And, as I just discovered, there *is* a definition to being too tired. I was too tired to correctly make my mochas this morning. The very fluid that literally keeps me vertical on the morning I need it most . . . and I am pouring it all over the counter because I FORGOT to put the little cuppy thing unde the little spouty thing. AHHHHHH! So I have to risk 3rd degree burns while dismantling it in order to get more water in it. But, after my first sip, I know I'll live. Thank all the powers that be.
But will I teach effectively? I warned my kids that I might be reduced to gibbering idioticially and possibly falling asleep mid-sentence. They promised to be good if that happened. I believe them. The school is in trouble! :)
