Yet today it's fall. It's cold out and damp and the leaves on the trees....well, they just aren't cooperating anymore.
Harken!! Is that a school bell I hear??
I've done the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL Eve preparation so many times now I don't even make myself a list anymore. Are the clothes ironed (with my lovely new frugal iron (it works really well by the way))? YES! Are the lesson plans made? YES! Are the numerous parent letters typed and photocopied? YES! Is extra food cooked for the week? YES! (although I personally had nothing to do with that) Is my hair cut? YES! Did I get a fresh pedicure? YES! Did I get all of my back to school supplies purchased and organized? YES! Is my classroom organized to within an inch (oops...millimeter) of its life? YES! Have I started my good diet, exercise and vitamin regime in hopes of preventing illness from all of those drippy noses? YES! Is my lunch made? NO!
Woops! I'll get to that soon; I usually make my lunch at the same time as I make my dinner. And get a load of my new lunch pail extraordinaire!!
|IT'S HUGE, I TELL YA, HUGE!!|
So I better toddle off and have some dinner. I worked up an appetite riding my bike down in the basement - I wonder where I'll pedal too this year? And then, after that, I'll check my notes again for tomorrow, relax with a book and hope that I get a good night's sleep.
I have a feeling I'm going to need it.
