#WeekendCoffeeShare: Reasonable Positivity Edition


If we were having coffee, I’d be pretty happy.  I badly want to be having coffee right now, but our coffeepot wants for a vinegaring, and it’s running slllooooowwwwww.  

All in all, it wasn’t a bad week.  The boy made it through a week of school with no poopery issues.  At my school, we had a couple of notable suspensions that kept my afternoon class functional all week, and the first math test of the year went way better than I thought it was going to.  My homeroom girls ate the thing alive, and my afternoon class showed a somewhat unexpected haves-and-have-nots pattern, where the kids either did great or very poorly.  I was expecting the poorly part, mind you, as they don’t pay attention and there’s way too many special ed kids in there to be able to teach them effectively, but the number of them that did really well was really gratifying.  What I didn’t see was kids in the middle.  They either missed one or two or they missed eight.

I would probably point at my wrist at some point and remark about how there wasn’t a brand-new Pebble Time Steel on it, because the post office is screwing with me (if you want to take it personallly) or having some issues with their tracking system if you don’t.  The tracking on the package is simultaneously insisting both that my watch is in California (where it has been since “shipping” on Tuesday) and that it will arrive yesterday.  I’m crossing my fingers that a slew of updates will pop all at once and I’m getting it today.  We’ll see.

I am looking forward to being mugged when some nitwit mistakes my $250 red and gold Pebble for a $17,000 Apple Watch, by the way.

And then I’d point out that it’s #SilerSaturday again, and Skylights is free, and since Skylights is my favorite of my books you really ought to download it and give it a read because it’s great.

How’re you?

  1. Have a great weekend, sounds like you are a true and good teacher 🙂
    I downloaded Skylights and will read it soon and then hopefully write a review, unless I can’t find the words for my review.


  2. I’ve been having a lot of problems with USPS shipping tracking (particularly on Amazon) lately. I’ve had a number of things list as delivered when they are thousands of miles away, say that they have arrived just because the estimate day was passed (even with the tracking accurately saying where it is), all sorts of things. Really lame. And shipping to Alaska is already a beast…
