i am not liking this week
let me tell you why
as a teacher, the week of school
leading up to the holiday break
is not all fun and games...
it sucks at times,
well, a lot of the time.
kids are not focused,
but who can blame them?
i am not focused!
there are 200 things on my to do list
and that is just my at home to do list!
and how about we try to cram one more
event into this month?
potlucks, at three places
and i know i am forgetting
the 5 other things
we did not show up for.
BUT, there are some things i enjoy...
going to the mailbox
knowing there is a card in there somewhere!
getting packages from far away places!
making and eating a gazillion cookies,
just because it is december!
driving around looking at lights!
reading christmas books
and watching holiday movies!
saturating the house with the kiddos
letting the kids shop for each other!
oh yeah, and having two glorious, work-free,
vegetative-inducing weeks off school.
i guess i shouldn't complain!
