Where is summer going?!?
Normally I make it to at least the 4th of July before I start
complaining about how fast the summer was-
guess I am an "early blossomer" this year.
I don't know how well you keep track of me- but you may have noticed
I haven't posted since last week's
WHAT THE HECK Wednesday
(please say you noticed, it will make me
One reason could be my LTT.
I was in a remission type stage,
but it has flared up again.
This time around it has been increasingly hard to deal with.
My symptoms have increased. It has been a rough couple of weeks.
For those of you who are not "medical- term" savvy
I will help you out.
LTT = Lack of Teachery Thoughts
I was diagnosed over the last winter break.
It went away once I started back in the New Year.
I expected it to return.
Of course it would.
Did you see all the stuff I brought home
to work on?
I have a whole summer full of projects- but my LTT gets in the way.
(kind of like that creepy blue robe with eyeballs in that medicine commercial)
The Teachery Thoughts are there.
I just avoid them.
I run from them.
I hide from them.
There are a few treatments I have tried.
I have tried committing to a time during each day to catch up on blogs.
I have set aside certain times to work on centers.
I have "Un-DVRed" several shows to get rid of the temptation-
but nothing is working.
As hard as I try,
I still can't get into the Teacher Mode right now.
I feel horrible when I log in to
Google Reader and there is this huge
list of blogs who are on it!! They are showing projects and
sharing classroom ideas.......
With the LTT taking over, I just don't have it in me-
I haven't even been on Pinterest in a week!!!
Side Effects of having LTT include (but are not limited to):
wanting to go to the pool, laying out in the backyard, visiting with friends, bike riding with Littles, watching ID Discovery (terrible addiction there), reading on the couch, reading in the bed, napping on the couch, napping in the bed, closing the office door so that you cannot see what is in here waiting, watching movies with Chickadee,
and the list goes on...there are so many other distractions that I couldn't possibly name them all....but I might try- seeing as how it will get me out of the school work I am hiding from :)
I will keep you updated on my condition:)
One thing that has not helped my LTT at all
is the opening of my Etsy Shop.
I have been a "little" occupied with that-
Feel free to check it out-
I have been adding stuff everyday- I love playing with the colors!
A blog friend of ours is having a giveaway soon and she is giving away a few of them! BOLO for that!!!
Speaking of blogs- I am participating in the
this Saturday- and I have to put the finishing touches on my post that I am sending
to one of my partners-
I am hoping that my LTT will wane off some this week-
as we are on a HEAT ALERT for the next few days-
I figure if I am going to be in here
I should be getting some stuff done!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!!
(If there are some others who are suffering from the same thing,
maybe we can create a support group) :)
