I really thought it was Thursday...

Is it really only Tuesday?? I was sitting at my desk at school this morning and I had a moment when I genuinely did not know what day it was-- although I was sure it had to be closer to Friday... but no. Alas, it is only Tuesday. But you know what that makes tomorrow? Wednesday! Yep, Hump Day. And I may or may not be the teacher who showed her students the Geico-Camel-Hump Day commercial which caused seemingly endless exclamations about hump day throughout the hallways for the rest of the week... But I'm not admitting anything. Nope, not me. However, I will share a link to watch the commercial on YouTube:

Now, I'm off to eat the steak, potatoes, and carrots Hubs grilled for dinner...

That's how I feel right now. I’ve already failed. I told myself I was going to do it this time, but I didn’t. Are we surprised? No. I knew it would happen like this… I wrote three posts and stopped. For three weeks. And I’m sorry. I promise I’m going to try to be more reliable! 

So, let’s catch up, shall we? Ok, great!

School started August 21st for the kids, and it’s been good so far. A little hectic and definitely exhausting… but good. I teach three different subjects and have six classes each day with students from grades 9-12, so my days are never boring. I’m usually ready to go home by the end of the day, but I’m also enjoying my classes so far.

This was after my first day of school last year-- AKA my first day of teaching ever. 
(I didn't take a first day picture this year.)

My best friend got MARRIED August 31st!!! It was a lot of fun, and she looked beautiful! I'm so happy she has found the man of her dreams! She’s currently still on her honeymoon (I’m super jealous), but here is a collage of a few pictures I managed to snap in between all the craziness and fun.

We've been really busy lately, so the hubs and I are enjoying this weekend just hanging out with family. We went to dinner with his grandparents last night, just got back from the creek with my parents, and are going to the county fair and my cousin’s new house tomorrow. I still have papers to grade and some house cleaning to do before tomorrow night, but I’m determined to make this weekend a fun, relaxing one.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!



Quick Update

I have some time between meetings/training earlier and open house tonight, so I thought I’d write a quick post with some clarification: Although I am sad that summer is over and am not entirely prepared for this school year, I do like my job and am looking forward to a new year. I work with amazing people, and our school is making some exciting changes this year!

The start of the school year has always been a happy time in my life. It means new people, clothes, office supplies…

I have a thing for office supplies. It’s like a weakness; it’s hard to go to the store without looking at them and longing for new ones. I also get super excited about buying my planner every summer! (Yes, I still use a paper planner.) As soon as I get home, I sit down and fill in important dates. Hubs thinks I’m crazy. I will admit that my love of office supplies is probably not normal, but I don’t see the harm in it. Therefore, my obsession lives on!

Now it’s time to get ready to head back to school. Hope you’re having a great Monday!
