Yes, folks, it's that time again: Back to School time. Today was our Staff Retreat, which I thought would be stupid. but in reality wasn't too bad. It was fun to see everyone. One of my favorite teachers announced her pregnancy, which is terrific. And there was lots of silliness and laughter. So, it was okay, for forced togetherness.
The rest of this week is going to be busy, busy, busy. I have two "free" days left, but I will probably be over in my classroom setting up both days. Thursday and Friday are official work days. And then next Monday is our first "student day".
So, all the fun I've had blogging and commenting is going to cut back. I will only be able to check my e-mail in the mornings before school, and then I will have to make my blog rounds sometime in the evening. (sigh) I'm going to miss being able to browse and comment whenever I want.
Next week, my younger boys start on Tuesday, and then the real craziness sets in. That's when I spend every evening helping with homework, getting showers done, and getting people in bed by a reasonable hour. For the first few weeks, I will go to bed when they do. I have gotten soft over the summer. I'm not used to being as active as I will have to be at school, and I will be pooped.
Anyway, I just wanted to warn you all, in case I'm not around as much.
See you Labor Day weekend! (just kidding)
