I KNOW I'm a teacher and Secret Passwords

I was too lazy to join missed out on "you know you're a teacher when...."
So....you know you're a teacher when...

...you have printer ink on your Christmas List.
...you convince your family and neighbors THEY should buy from the book order, so YOU can get the points.
...you get a laminator for Mother's Day.
...before going anywhere you tell everyone (even the Mr.) "Everybody tries!"
...you begin to have more containers than stuff.
...you can never just give an answer- you have to explain EVERYTHING. (My Littles hate this).
...your 8 year old corrects other people's grammar (there is a H.I.larious story that goes with that....)

The oldest son had a sleepover Fri night. And the boy "Herman", kept bragging that he was in all advanced classes at the middle school. Then a few minutes later "Herman" started a sentence with "me and 'Bob'...so the youngest son says,
"Well if you are in all the smart classes, why can't you speak correctly? It's "Bob and I".... that kid cracks me up!

I don't have anything huge to share...although I do have something cute.

We have lots of passwords to keep up with lately....so to make it easier on them, I did a mail merge onto these 5 x 7 cards.
I changed the desktop on my computers- there are 3 working ones. One has a cheetah background, one a zebra, and one a peacock. I counted off the sweeties "1,2,3" , then separated the cards "1,2,3". Put the cards on  a ring binder, command hook on side of computer (headphones go there too). And I put the links to these main three things in the desktop...so they only have to click the pic, type in their login, and they are good to go!

I had to do something....It got to where I was spending way too much time redirecting them on the computer during my small group sessions. I also have one Computer Tech in each reading group...that person can help you out too!

How do you keep your sweeties organized on the computers?

On a more "sensitive" note- TOTAL PUN INTENDED!!!!

The final stage of my "new grill" will be on "My Birf-day ! We're gonna party like it's my birf-day!!"
So March 7th I will be ready for a reveal! Until that time, I am having a HARD time with the temps. I went to the dentist FOUR TIMES THIS WEEK.....two of the temps are right in a "bite zone" (wouldn't that be your whole mouth)????

So while eating pizza tonight, it happened AGAIN. And I don't know if my dentist is open tomorrow!

If anything, this has also become a weight loss plan- because I am TOO SCARED TO EAT ANYTHING!!!!!!

I will keep my fingers crossed that none of the others decide to pop off!!!

    I ask for printer ink and Office Depot gift cards EVERY year for Christmas!
    That one cracked me up!
    AND I have more containers than stuff--and the stuff I have ISN'T in containers (but the empty containers are neatly stacked in the garage! Does that count as "organized"?)

    Thanks for making me chuckle early on a Monday morning...
