I think the worst part about being a teacher is that you still have to do lesson plans for a sub even when you're sick. If you're too sick to work, you're too sick to write lesson plans and go to school to photocopy tests and stuff. And when I'm writing lesson plans, I either feel bad because the plans are so detailed and there's so much that should be done, I feel like I can't leave it up to a sub (or I'll just be reteaching it later anyway). Or, if the plans are short and easy, I feel like it's going to be a short, easy day, and I should just go in, I'm sure I can manage a day like that. And then I feel guilty for calling in sick, they kind of drilled it into us at Concordia that teachers don't get sick days. I was amazed when I found out that my school gave teachers personal days.

Anyway, my husband is on his way to school tonight to drop off lesson plans and to print a test out for me.

In other news, I'm going to try out the Nuvaring birth control. It's funny cause it's $45 over the counter for one ring, but if I get it mail-order it's 3 for $37. Anyway, Jordan and I are hoping that it will strengthen my "interest" in "bedtime." Anyway, I'm tired and I'm going to check out this "smarter than a 5th grader" show.
