This Week’s Book Haul:
I got a surprise package from Helena Hunting with a signed copy of Pucked Love and some swag!
I also got several paperbacks from publishers! It was a good week for bookmail!
I don’t normally put stock in the ‘full moon makes people crazy’ theory, but this week really tested me! The students were nutty, we had all kinds of issues that we never have, I had 3 irregularity reports to write from the ACT test (that never happens) and I was sick on Thursday. It was just nutty! I will be glad once all this craziness and Halloween are over.
I had to work both Saturday and today which is rough! Saturday I administered the ACT. I was at work from 7:00 am until 3:00 (which is pretty much a normal day!) and today we have Open House. Since I teach in a private school, we have a day where potential students come to check out the school and get some information. Making a decision on which private high school to attend is a big deal. I mean, these parents are going to pay between $8,000-$20,000 a year for private education (and that is just high school-then there is college tuition!). I went to public school growing up so its all strange to me, but private schools are a big deal here. So, we have to meet with potential students and their parents to show them the school, discuss our programs, and answer questions. Since I teach special education, I usually have many parents who want to chat about how students are provided with support. By the end of the 2 hours, my voice will be shot!
I can’t believe it will be November this week! I have to have a full hearing test on Thursday. My hearing has declined significantly. Right now, I am at the upper range of what my hearing aids can do. Sadly, I’m still not able to hear conversations well. So, we will do an updated hearing evaluation and make a decision about where to go from here. The only thing that really stresses me out about it all is the cost. Hearing aids are so expensive and health insurance doesn’t cover a single penny of it.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
