Not at the same time, though! I definitely was not aggravated on our date - we had a nice dinner out at Granite City and then saw Pirates 3. Every time Aaron and I go out on a date I wonder why we don't do it more often. Then I remember - time and money! It seems I could always use a little more of both!
Bryn and I went to another free movie (Flushed Away), had a picnic lunch and ice cream and went to Target for Father's Day cards (which are obviously going to be late - I always have big plans to do something really creative and end up buying cards at the last minute). All in all, a fun day that didn't get my blood pressure up (unlike yesterday when I had it checked after sitting in the doctors office for a REALLY LONG TIME - but that's another day's rant!).
So onto the aggravation - why, oh why, can't my students just turn their work in on time and do it well? I spend lots of time offering feedback and constructive criticism only to have that feedback ignored on the next assignment. I mean, these people are grown adults and it seems that oftentimes my 5 year old has better listening skills. Now I was not the most stellar student to ever come down the pike, but I really feel like adults should be able to evaluate if they have the time and/or energy to spend the on a college course. And if they don't, stop torturing everyone involved by moaning and complaining and not doing the work! Aaaaaargh! BTW, this a rant I get into multiple times each semester - those of you who have heard it a million times before, just ignore me!
