Ok, this is my first "official" post. I am going to begin to actively blog starting, now. No wait, NOW! Is anyone there? (Still waiting......) Oh, well. (Listening...) Is anyone there? No? Oh, I probably should let people know that this blog actually exists, eh?
*Note to self*
As I write this post, I am sure that my behavior mimics many teachers on July 30th, or wait is is July 31st? See... it's the summer and I don't even know the date. Just wait until August 21st I promise I will know that date. Any who, I am sitting in my bed, wanting to sleep but anxiously awaiting my return to my classroom tomorrow. Am I day dreaming or am I truly traumatized by Day ONE? As you can guage, today was my first day back or should I say... actively working in my room. It was Day ONE, Numeral Uno, my the First Day back post summer.
That said, today I tore my room up, from head to toe. It is an outright disaster~ no exaggeration needed! I keep telling myself, or anyone who will listen, that it has to get worse before it gets better right? Or no? Well, it sounds good to me. I will post some disaster pics tomorrow. Now, I sit in my bed drinking a glass of sangria, thinking about pinterest, other teacher rooms that are ready for the first day and wanting to change just about everything in my room. Why do I do this to myself every year?
I have been teaching for 6 years now. I have always been in kindergarten, which I truly enjoy, love and according to my husband, I am truly obsessed with! I am excited for the upcoming year but this is the time of year I dread, but secretly love, because it is a time to change my room. I get to fix all of the problems, and/or mess around with new ideas/decor/arrangements. I DO love this time, but it is utterly draining, exhausting, and I NEVER have enough time to finish everything. ??? ARGH!
But am I telling you something that you don't already know? Nope. Every teacher, everywhere feels this too right? Or at least I hope so. Well... To all of my teachers out there, good night, sleep well, and don't let the teaching mind distract you from your beauty sleep! Until next time~
