I am soooo tired of 6th grade math. We're preparing for an end of the grading period test tomorrow and spent about 3 hours working on adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators last night. I finally got so tired I couldn't multiply in my head and pulled out the calculator. I normally work them the way she has to. When she said I was cheating, I patiently explained that I'd already passed the 6th grade, so all that mattered now was that I had the right answer so I could help her, not how I got the right answer. She wasn't buying it. Of course, Rob thought that was hilarious.
What I don't understand is why the teacher didn't just give us the right answers so I wouldn't have to work the problems. I'm a little out of practice :-(
I seem to be looking for common denominators with everyone lately. Right now I seem to be out of sync with everyone? I have a business trip next week and am not sure how much that's affecting me. And, my Dad is having a little surgery today. I'm sure that's got something to do with it. And, everyone at work is really uptight about having enough time to do their job.
I'm really spending a lot of time in my own head and everyone around me wants me to be out there with them.
Rob found a quilt pattern in a magazine I left laying open this morning. I haven't even quilted the last one he asked for. Guess I'd better get on the stick. I didn't even get his cmas quilt basted over the weekend. I am behind. But, I've bought two cmas presents! I think I'm ahead of the game.
