Work, Eat, Sleep (Repeat)
Arriving home after 6:00 PM and logging another 3-4 hours of work before practically collapsing into bed doesn't help, but it is what it is.
This fall marks my fourth year teaching and I finally feel like I've achieved a solid groove with my preparation. However, I have two classes this year (AM and PM five days/week), with sixteen and thirteen children respectively. That's 29 families, people, with the potential for a handful more if enrollment increases. Plus, since I'm new to the school, I'm learning the ins and outs of the environment and culture along with all of them. Needless to say, my type-A-ness is in overdrive right now and probably will be for the rest of the month. ('Cause oh yeah, we're also getting married at the end of September. Gulp!).
I'll be around this space, but definitely not regularly unless I magically become wonder woman.
P.S. Before I forget, the point of this post was to show you the pint-sized, cherry-red lounge chairs I inherited. You can't see it too well, but I put a ladybug footstool in front of the chair on the left. Kind of amazing, if I do say so myself. Nothing more off the hook than a tricked out reading nook.
Aaaand with that feeble attempt at a rhyme, I'm over and out.
