Random Pieces of My Brain
School starts next week and I am not even close to ready. Piles of curriculum surround me, pdfs are opened and pages are being printed….I have so much scheduling and organizing to do.
I have 2 fantasy football drafts this weekend and have not done one drop of research. Not even reading TMR, which I love. I will probably end up just using his Top 200 list. Sigh. I meant to buy a magazine at the store the other night and forgot. Yes, I’m that into fantasy, that I will buy a magazine for something that ….isn’t real. So now you know how frustrated I am at not having researched anything yet. Funny too, that this paragraph is way longer than my school paragraph. It’s all about priorities, right???
I’m hoping to have a review post up soon about Annie Down’s book, Perfectly Unique, that comes out next week. There were lots of things I liked about it, and some things that I wasn’t really a fan of.
And lastly, I am so frustrated with how difficult it is to find a good resource to teach my kids about a country and it’s culture, and also the social justice issues that are important to that culture. It shouldn’t be so difficult to teach them about poverty and fair trade, and also love of and understanding of a culture. So I am going to try and make a little unit study type of thing that will be what I want. I’m tired of piecing together all sorts of various resources and studies to cover what I want covered. Of course wanting and doing, are two different things. Let’s see if I can accomplish what I want. Otherwise I’ll have to stop complaining, right?
So….who wants to help me with my fantasy teams??? Any must-have players? ( I refuse to draft certain people for no good reason; namely super arrogant players like Tom Brady and Cam Newton. Yes, I realize this puts me at a disadvantage. And, I’m super attached to some people, like, ahem, Peyton Manning, even going so far as to draft him in the second round last year, which, yes, was super dumb.)
