School Excitement ....

I always always always get way too excited for school to start, (I really don't know why -- five days into the year I am ready for a 3 day weekend ... it doesn't really make sense!) I have to force myself to wait until August to go into the school and set up my classroom -- just so I don't beat the other teachers by more than a month! I am pathetic! This year is no different. I am going crazy here at home all alone ... so the eve of my first return back to school is an exciting one! YES -- I am giving in and going back tomorrow. My dear friend, who is now on bed-rest with her baby, has offered to help me cut out all of my new school decorations that I have made. After I am done with that, I am going to go to my room, arrange my desks, and set up my bulletin boards. Stephanie always comes to help me ... and generally makes fun of my OCD tendencies to make everything perfect. That is okay -- it is my home for 10 months of the year! I know that I am a loser but ....

I AM SO EXCITED!!

Oy! You nutty woman. I wait until the last possible moment. I have to say that when I go in I start to get excited, but I avoid the building like the plague until I have to go back. So yeah, I'm not even thinking about going back for a while.

I wish I could go hang with you! I am a nerd like you and like to go get everything in order. I dreamed that students helped put together my room and it looked awful!
