I woke up this morning with a sick headache.
But I went to school anyway.
Because who calls in sick on the third week of school?
I lost count when I was making the coffee, and I made it too strong.
The other teachers were in for a surprise.
I remembered to take attendance.
But I forgot to send it to the office.
I tried to open my web browser.
But I accidentally restarted my computer.
Then Windows had to install updates.
My head hurt.
I was impatient with my students.
I think I forgot to teach one class.
I didn’t grade a single paper.
There is a huge stack waiting on my desk.
I’m pretty sure my weekly newsletter had mistakes.
I know my weekly test schedule is wrong.
I didn’t even bother to answer emails.
I have no idea if my students took the right books home.
I’m not sure I even assigned all the homework.
I didn’t clean my room.
I just left.
Today, I felt like a failure…
…But God thinks I’m pretty awesome.
…So that’s the story I’m going with.
