Brief update

Really, I should be grading papers, as that’s what a prep period is for, but it’s Friday, and I’m seriously distracted…and my red pen died and I don’t feel like walking to the office to get another one.

We haven’t posted in forever, but I promise we have really good reasons! Remember how I posted about getting a teaching job? Well, it started the Monday after we got married and I’ve been wicked busy every since. All I do is lesson plan and grade papers and I go to bed at 9 every night. I lead a boring, but busy, life. My students are giving me a run for my money, but aren’t as terrifying as I thought they would be. I have this one really cute junior who is a moho in the making. I seriously want to ask him if he has a blog just so I can read it, but I’m pretty sure that would be crossing some professional boundary. My juniors are adorable and my seniors are adorably puntable (ie. I want to punt them out the window because they won’t stop whining about the fact that they have to grow up and take notes and actually be accountable for life). I was walking through the hall the other day and one of the students said, “milk is my favorite drink…after beer!” I had to run into another teacher’s classroom to keep from busting out laughing in the hallway. Oh the rising generation—kinda scary if you ask me. I’ve confiscated 15 cell phones (4 in one period just today) and 8 ipods and we’re only 2 weeks in to school. Hopefully after January (when the semester ends and I’ll only be planning for one class instead of 2) I’ll be able to have fun again…

Married life is treating us pretty well. I like the fact that we don’t have to abide by the *cough* wretched *cough* I mean “divinely inspired” BYU honor code anymore and no one has to go home at midnight. We’re still lacking a few furnishings in our apartment, but hopefully those will be coming within the month barring any unforeseen expenses. Once we get some couches we hope to have some more gatherings at our house.

Well, I know it’s lame, but that’s about all I have for an update at the moment. At least it’s something right?

I just noticed there is a picture of a sullen little girl next to a picture of a rather butch appetizer in the top-left corner of your blog.

Can this be explained?

If it were truly a brief update, you'd let us know how the thongs that Drex was given at the bachelor's party are working out for you...

LOL

Hidden said...

Well, at least you're not dead. That's reassuring. Cheers...

Happy day! I'm glad that you and Drex are having a good time together. I love you both a lot and I'm grateful to have such great friends like you. Let's try to play more often, ok?

Um yeah I haven't seen you in forever. Let's party soon okay? I miss you.

Oh and glad to hear life is fabulous (wow I almost just typed fagulous...umm...that's sort of hilarious).

AUGH! The Ipod/Cell Phone menace is rampant in schools. Good luck combating that insanity--especially at your school...
