Time to make the donuts...

I SO understand how that Dunkin' Donuts Drone felt for all those years... :)

Tomorrow, we have to go back to school. It's an in-service day, so we will be listening to our peers, talking about articles on education, etc. Of course, since the custodians were already moving everything from my room out into the hallway to clean the floor at 3:02 on 12/18, I think it would be really nice to have some time to put everything back the way I want it to be. But there will be very little time for that tomorrow. Tomorrow is a meeting day, whereas January 19th will be the teacher prep day. That doesn't make a lot of sense, but that is the time that the 3rd 6-weeks grading period actually ends, so that's where the teacher prep day falls.

Thankfully, it has been a super fantastic Christmas Break. It has seemed really long, I feel relaxed -- of course, my sleep cycle is, as always, screwed up after spending two weeks staying up past midnight and then sleeping past 11. I got grading and paperwork done, but I also plenty of opportunity to be a lazy bum. My fiance and I got a lot of stuff done in regards to wedding planning.

So overall, I'm happy with the break. Now my wish is that my kids come back to school ready and willing to work hard and learn much.

I also wish that we didn't have to report until 11AM tomorrow morning, just to ease back into things...

I am having the same feelings about going back to school! Before leaving I could tell that both the students and I needed a break. While my break was really relaxing I spent so much of it thinking about how little was left :( (I know that's an awful waste)

I'm usually in bed by 9:00p and up at 5:00a. I know I will wide awake at midnight. Tomorrow will involve a lot of coffee!

Oh, I totally agree! This week is way too busy to be the first week back after completely vegging out for the past 14 days. I have "Breakfast Duty" (report at 6:55), then on Wed. and Thurs. we have our SACS re-accreditation visit, and I'm the faculty chair. On top of all that, they are calling for snow later this week. The possibility of a free day off has the power to render me completely useless to the county--have to spend time hoping, wishing, praying . . . around here, it only takes a little snow for the world to come grinding to a halt! Have a good first day back with the kids!
