Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

This Day May Never End - - -

Parent-Teacher Conferences from noon until 7:00 PM.

I only have 40 scheduled conferences.

But there will be walk-ins.

Uggggg. Hope all went well. 40!!!!

I remember those days! 7 hours doesn't seem enought time for 40!! When I taught we did 15 min. conferences each and spread them out over 2 days. Sounds like a CRAZY day! And you will no doubt be there later than 7 because you always get behind somewhere!!

I can't find my blog said...

Yikes! I will pray for strength and endurance!

Thanks, girls!!!!

I'm here - - - at the conference site as I type.

Four more have been added to my list - - - so now it's 44 before walk-ons.

Fortunately, I talk fast, and smile frequently, so it shouldn't be toooooo bad.

I'll keep you posted - - - - IF I get a break.

Oh - - - and I'm not an elementary teacher, and up here in HS and MS we have tables set up in the cafeteria and parents visit from table to table. We don't schedule 15 minute intervals. Some take less, some take more.

All I can say is yuck!!! I have nothing but sympathy for you my friend. I'm sitting enjoying a nice sunny day while Halle is napping. I think I'll read a book!

Keetha Broyles said...

Enjoy that freedom for me, Shannon!!!

So far I've had 8 conferences. Wooooo Whoooooo!!

Nancy said...

What a marathon! I hope you will still be talking fast and smiling at 7:00! You may need a facial massage to relax your jaw.

Dan said...

Das' jus' plain ol' hateful! Good luck!

Nancy said...

danman, Was your comment meant for me? If so, my comment was not meant to be hateful. I've been through marathon Jr High conferences, and also events with lots of smiling, and it can be painful to the jaw - seriously. Keetha, you deserve a spa treatment including a facial massage -- it's wonderful!

Keetha Broyles said...

LOL Nancy - - - I THINK Danman was saying that it was just plain HATEFUL that we had to be at conferences so long.

Mine lasted until 7:30. There at the end I FORGOT to count exactly how many I ended up having today. I know a couple didn't show up and several extras walked in so I think I came out pretty close to the 44 I expected to have.

We have a few more tomorrow afternoon, but it doesn't extend past the end of the school day then.

Nancy said...

Keetha, What? The world DOESN'T revolve around me and my comments? LOL.

Your pictures made the P-T conferences look like fun - what a gift you have! You may have a future in PR.
