Zonked

Some days...

I'm leaning all the way back in the chair. My head resting on the wall behind me. "Dead Man's Party" plays on the radio.

The class is on task.

It's an honors algebra 2 class. Their assignment is on the distance formula. I walked the room. They're all making good progress.

I've had a whole day of this. I'm zonked.

I mean, it's a good thing. I have a lot of days like this. Easy days. Days where my biggest challenge is staying awake. Days where I hover, hoping someone needs a little help...

No?

Ah well. I'll enjoy the peace. While I have it...

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...


Can you believe the A to Z Challenge is over? Did you make it through? Are you zonked too?

    1. Well, actually algebra 2. The second year of algebra.

      But math is cool! (It's been nice to meet you, too.)

  2. Congratulations on finishing the A to Z, Liz!

    Sometimes when things suddenly slip into "easy" mode, we're finally allowed the opportunity to realize how exhausted we are. Often too exhausted to enjoy the experience. :)

  7. I've had plenty of zonked days, too. The good news is--if you're a writer, you can take naps. The bad news? I'm not a napper!

    1. Stay up late. Then you want to nap mid-day.

  10. I think zonked is the perfect word for the end of the A to Z challenge because I think we're all feeling that way!

    Congrats on making it to the end!

  11. So when it is an "easy" time like this, do you play Word with Friends on your phone? (just kidding)

    Congrats on completing the challenge!! I'm zonked but I'm kind of sad to see it go. It was fun to try to get it all done, visit blogs, respond to comments, tweak my posts, etc, but it will be nice to actually breathe and get some other stuff done :)

  12. YES -- embracing that feeling right now. I need to get back to my regular research, but after that ZONKED feeling passes.
    Congrats on finishing the Challenge!

  21. Well done on finishing the challenge, and you are amazing for being a teacher, me and kids no longer mix, I guess it's an age thing, and losing my patience lol. I've enjoyed your posts.
