Stop being so freakin' adorable. I just want to throw the squeaky giraffe for you over and over again instead of doing work. You look so earnest when you "ask" me to play!
Dear Dog Next Door,
SHUT UP! There is NOTHING out there to bark at, and even if there is, clearly you're not doing any good since it's still there! Seriously, my husband is about to go over there and offer you hamburger with rat poison in it or something.
Can you be over, now? If you're over, that means my portfolio and my 4 units will have been turned in and I won't have to worry about them anymore. That means I'll be three weeks closer to the end of the school year, and maybe, just maybe, the weather might be somewhat more predictably decent.
If you're not going to be over, then at least go really slowly so I have loooootssss of time to work on these big projects, okay?
Frazzled Student Teacher
I love you sooooooooo much! You are amazing for cooking, cleaning, shopping, and bill-paying during these last few really hard weeks. You've put up with me crying for no reason, encouraged me, and done all of this without complaning. I owe you this summer and will make it up to you!
Love love love,
I'm totally not jinxing it or anything, but you've been pretty good the past couple of weeks. Keep it up, eh? Much more enjoyable days for everyone, all around.
33 more days!
P.S. I really am going to miss you when this year is over, as amazing as that may seem to you. I might even get a little teary the last day, just to warn you. Please come back and say hi when you can. That's what teachers live for.
I love you with a loyal and undying passion. Never leave me.
