I chewed a student out yesterday too. He totally deserved it. He's deserved it for months. He's the kind of kid that always denies everything I say he's done. "I wasn't sleeping." "I wasn't talking." Etc. Well yesterday I warned the class that if they slept during Romeo and Juliet, they would get a zero on their notes and would have to go to another classroom to do an alternate assignment. When I politely reminded the student of this - a warning - he said "What is the point of watching this anyway?" I said "Fine, don't" and got materials ready for the other class (after he denying doing anything and argued with me.
I rarely let my temper surface at school, mostly because it's not my character and it's hard for me to get yelling-angry. But I let him have it.
Last night was fine, but this morning the rage is back.
It could have to do with Stella peeing on my bed at 4 a.m. What the hell? She is completely potty trained. We don't let her sleep with us. But we do let her up with us in the early morning. (We leave the door open down stairs. Often, she comes up for a second, then goes down to pee, then comes back.) Today she just peed, then left. At 4 a.m. It's only happened once before - about a month ago. I think it's because DH is out of town...she's punishing me? Great.
So if this is moodiness. I've got it.

I also must say something about the losses this week. I don't follow everyone who experienced a loss this week, but I do follow Belle at Scrambled Eggs. I am so sad for her and everyone else. I so wish there was something I could do to make it better, but it's pretty much impossible. So just sending my love.
