1. As August draws to a close, share what's been your favorite weekend of the entire summer? All of them that led to a non-school week. :)
2. Labor Day is marked in the US of A on Monday, September 1st. What paying job have you held that you've loved the most? Liked the least? The one I have now. I love teaching. I just don't love having to get up and go to a job. I don't have a least favorite. I was a SAHM for over 25 years so I really haven't held that many jobs. The ones I did, I liked at the time.
3. Does the new school year start before or after Labor Day where you live? When do you think it should begin? There is much discussion now about older students having later start times to their school day...your thoughts? It started on the 21st. I think it should begin AFTER Labor Day like it did when I was a kid.. I agree with the older kids starting their school day later. They do tend to function better with a later start time. Probably because they're up so late studying...Bwahahahahaha....I almost couldn't type that for laughing so hard. But, seriously, I do agree with a later start time for high schoolers.
4. What's something you've worked at recently that could be deemed a 'labor of love'? Every darn thing I do for those kids at school. And those Mason jar birdfeeders I made for two friends.
5.Which of the following work idioms can you most relate to right now...'A woman's work is never done.', 'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.' 'Many hands make light work.' ''All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.' I've been working my...fingers to the bone since the week before school started and I'm not being much fun. I refused to bring anything home yesterday. REFUSED.
6. Crab or lobster or thanks, but no thanks? Favorite way to have your choice prepared? Neither, really. Though I do like she crab soup and certain crab dips. Otherwise, I turn them both down.
7. Albert Einstein is quoted as saying, 'Three rules of work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.' Which of the three do you consider to be the most important? Share one of your own 'rules of work'. I don't know...they're all pretty good. I guess I would go with the first one because, as soon as I declutter my desk, I shall have simplicity and order and things will go more smoothly AND I will enjoy school much more than I already do. My rules for work? While at work, focus on work and give 110%. Try to listen to understand not to respond. Be patient with everyone but especially with the students. Oh, and learn to say, "NO."
Have a great rest of the week, y'all!
