Last night my big dilemma (other than, should I have a rum and cokezero or not) was what time I should wake up this morning.  The FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL (ba, ba, bum!).  I thought (briefly) about getting up around 5:30 and going for a (much needed) run.  I am pretty sure I even set the alarm for 5:30.  You know, five, THREE, zero. 

Too bad miss raven didn't get the memo.  She (and her bladder) decided that the appropriate time to wake me up would be 5:15.  Five, ONE, five.


So, while I didn't sleep in, I, um, didn't go for a run either.  Yes, the proper word to be thinking at this time would be L.A.Z.Y.  I'm not to proud to admit it.  I did, however, come home tonight and do an hour's worth of yardwork including mowing the lawn, using the weedwhacker, and trimming some branches from a couple of trees.  That should count for something.

The first day of school was pretty much what I thought it would be.  Busy, crazy, stressful, complicated, tiring know, all of those kinds of adjectives.  Not horrible, though.  I am pretty sure I was on my feet constantly from 7:30 to 11:45.  And then again from 2:30ish until 4:30.  Needless to say, my feeet are tired and sore.  Very, very sore.  They aren't used to be used quite so much!

I wish I could say that tomorrow won't be just as , but it will.  Actually, pretty much ALL of my week will be like that.  1 down, 179 to go.  Not that I am counting or anything.  LOL!!!  I said that to a student at the end of the day.  He said to me, "When you put it like that it sounds so depressing."  I had to laugh because he was right.  I told him to instead focus on the fact that we have nine more days of school until we get a day off (Labor Day).  That made him feel better and, you know what?  It made me feel better, too.

1 down, 9 to go....before Labor Day......


  1. I'm counting the days until Christmas and my trip to NH. I would say that you burned as much calories doing all that yard work as you would have taking a run. So your off the hook! Your welcome. You don't have to Thank me :)

  2. Schools in Canada start the day after Labour Day every year. So we're still on summer vacation out here.

  3. Soo happy that your first day of school went well!!!
    Best of luck with the rest of the 179 to go!!!!!
