Excuses, Excuses

So, I've mentioned before about how I'm teaching a CCD class.

Well, for the most part its going wonderfully. Even though all I want to do is quit because I feel like I'm flailing in the water and there's nothing but a tiny, half inflated inner tube keeping me afloat. This feeling only comes about because I am incredibly insecure about my knowledge on the subject matter.

Me? Insecure? Never!

But that's not the point of this post. The point is that with this class I'm teaching, I have to take a class of my own to be a certified Catechists. (Catholic lingo for teacher)

We've had five long chapters to read, answer questions to and discuss at three separate meetings with our person in charge. I completed chapters 1-4 on time and turned them in. Chapter 5, I finished today, while Kyra was napping (mostly). Kyra woke up as I was answering my final question.

Typing with Kyra in my lap is not an easy feat. Apparently neither is saving my finished product. I hit "save as" and every thing disappeared off the screen.

Gone. Audios. See ya!

The problem is, now I can't find it, my final, spell checked, re-read, saved piece. I need to print it, take it to my meeting in one hour, and it. is. missing. Now where to be found on the damned contraption.

So, my question I pose to you is... think my person in charge will accept my excuse that my computer ate my homework? Is that a reasonable excuse these days?

I really should be working on finding it, but I'm tired. My brain hurts, and I'd rather write a post about it.

Now, hopefully she'll accept my excuse of my computer being a royal pain in my rear and confiscated my hard work.

  1. Your teacher should accept that excuse. And everything you're going through is pretty common for first year teachers, Sunday School or otherwise.
