Spilling my Thoughts

During the times when I'm not scheduled to see kids:
"I'm bored. What should I do? I could do this.... noooo. I could do that... hm. I don't feel like it. Did I get an email? I have to do this by tomorrow, maybe I should do it now... naw. Will there be a snow day tomorrow? Let's check weather.com. Did I get an email? Wait I should really do that thing... wait I don't feel like it. Is it time for another hot chocolate break?"
Right before it's time to work with kids:
"Maybe they'll be absent today; maybe they won't come. Maybe they'll be doing something special in class; maybe they won't come. If they come, what should I do with them today?"
When I'm working with kids:
"How much time do we have left? What should I do in that time?"
"Ten more minutes till they're done. Seven more minutes. Five more minutes. Two more minutes. Whew! They're gone now. Wait. I'm bored again."
On the car ride home:
"Am I there yet? Am I there yet? Am I there yet? How 'bout now? Now? Now?"
Upon arrival:
"HALLELUIAH!!" "I WILL NEVER LEAVE MY HOUSE AGAIN!"

I am trying to learn to be content with this job. Some days I am more successful than others.
