Opening day.

It's that magical time of year again.  The beginning of a new school year.  I'm feeling surprisingly calm about it for some reason (probably because my freaking out is being directed elsewhere at the moment).  But today was opening day -- the day before students arrive.  We had our district "Appreciation Celebration".  Great idea, except I was seated with elementary and middle school teachers who felt no need to socialize with me (well, one of them finally did...during the keynote speech).  So, it was a boring two hours.  But the district provided breakfast, so I can't complain too much, right?

Opening Day

After the Appreciation Celebration, I worked in my classroom until 5:30, and then went to Wal-Mart so I could pick up a few things I needed for tomorrow.  Then I came home, did some housework, and made curtains for my room.  They are quite adequate, if I do say so myself. 

And now I'm exhausted.  No time for a nap today.  No time for a nap all week, I imagine.  Can I call it a rude awakening if it makes me want to fall asleep?

PS -- Thank you for all the sweet comments from yesterday's post!  They mean so much to me!

The best advice I can give you right now is don't freak out about it.. I remember when I got pregnant with Lucas...we were still staying with Anthony's mom at the time and I was freaking out b/c I had gotten pregnant...just b/c we weren't in our own place yet...Anthony was calm as usual and was so excited about it that it calmed me down and the last thing you need to do while your pregnant is worry:):)
