Summer's Over

What?!?! Over?!?! No!!!

Sadly yes, for me, summer is over. I went back into my classroom today. Only two weeks until school starts and I need to get ready. All of the ideas that have been exploding inside my head all summer now need to be focused and put into practice.

I'm not even going to describe the nightmare that the first few weeks of school is going to be. Student registration is still unfinished...there are still teachers to hire for our is possible that classrooms might be switched at the last minute...I am missing a printer in my classroom...there is no wireless internet in my wing of the building as promised...the street in front of our school is torn up and you can't even get into the parking lot because of a 5-foot-wide trench that has been dug...and did I mention that they have 2 weeks (10 business days) to fix all of this? And that ain't all sister!

And somehow, despite all of this, I am still planning to run and attend classes at the gym. I'm going to need that "me time" in order to stay sane here!

I'm sure I'll post some pictures of the room when it's all done and pretty :)


  1. Can't wait to see it. I've been in twice briefly. I plan to go in longer today. But first I need to go jump on my bike.

    Changing rooms at this point would be awful!

  2. Our teachers come back in two weeks and I am SO NOT ready!!!!!!

    I totally need to get with the program with my running right now! Work is so insane (sounds much like yours) and I am exhausted by the end of the day!
