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?
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!
