August is here, and as teachers, we all know what that means. A little dread (I have to get up...when?!) A little excitement (new faces, new attitudes) and a little nervousness (will I remember everything I want to do this year?) But it also means that Farley, wonderful woman that she is, has a new Currently for us. Bless her heart. It is fun to do these each month. And best of all, she remembers to post them on time each month!
And then I got to see some girlfriends that I've known for almost thirty years, and the next day some college friends that I've known for even longer!
I saw a poster - plain black text on white paper - that I loved. And I want to "fun it up" a little. Here's what it said: Let's eat Grandpa.
Let's eat, Grandpa.
Correct punctuation can save a person's life.
On the down side, I tend to put on a few pounds as I come into the end of the year. And then, with more time to rest over the summer, and more time to run or walk, I usually take it off. But this summer, I've been a woman on a mission. Eat all the desserts! Have some chips! WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? So, now I need to get out the door. I don't make myself crazy about this stuff, really. I just like it when my clothes don't feel tight around my waist.
I'm slowly starting to comprehend that if I don't get my classroom unpacked, no one else will do it for me. They'll finish cleaning tomorrow. And I need to get in there next week. I'm eager to see my class list!
And finally, I read an article in the paper the other day that said that most of us don't get enough sleep. Our bodies need 7 1/2 - 8 1/2 hours of sleep a night. Are you getting that? I want to try harder to get closer.
And, on that note, off to bed I go!
