Well, here it goes! In my incredible abundance of spare time, I have decided to create a teaching blog! I am doing this because, quite frankly, the funny (and a lot of times sweet) moments of teaching are the reason I keep showing up every day! Just kidding. Sort of.
My Assistant Principal is the one who came up with the blog title (he suggested The Third Degree, but it was already taken), and I loved it! Also, now? I can blame the content on him if I get in trouble. Right?!
Seriously though, a reoccurring life lesson for me, and something that I do really well now, is to see the FUNNY in everyday situations. Sometimes, all we can do is laugh at the circumstances, and move on. That holds true for anybody, in any profession--from stay at home mom to CEO of an equally important company (you know, equally important as the family homestead). A lot of times people ask me how I end up with all of the "funny" kids, and I don't think I do. I just LISTEN for the funny. It's all around you, and if you're lucky, you won't hear it when you have a mouthful of soda. Because that stuff shoots right out your nose, trust me on this.
To all my Facebook friends who enjoy the weekly funnies I share, I hope you will come here too! One of my life goals is to write a book. Actually, lots of books. I'm a little (okay, a lot) ADHD in that I have started about 25 books and have finished none. I call it completion anxiety, but my closest friends call it crap. They are probably right. Maybe, just maybe, this blog will somehow morph into (one of) the book(s) I want to write! And if not, then hopefully it will at least make you laugh.
