but not quite yet.
Next week is my last week of freedom. I have one more week left to get all the things done that I wanted to in the last 8. Ha.... I have actually accomplished quite a bit. Not near as much as I wanted to, but I think I overloaded myself, so I'm okay with that. The main point of summer is that I had a fabulous time. I rested. Relaxed. Swam. Ate. Drank. And partied. It was a freaking amazing summer.
So next week I will go into my classroom and start prepping it for the new year. I will also start to get things organized since I didn't get as much of that done as I would have hoped.
Then the following week I have the AP Biology class. I'm really looking forward to that, it should be good.
Then the week after that I return to work :( 6 days of teacher stuff and then the kids come back on Wednesday. Luckily we only have them for 2 days the first week. But then it's boom, back into it.
In non-school news, I have been working out regularly and already starting to feel amazing. It is unreal how exercise makes you feel so good. So I have got to keep it up once I go back to work. I'm waffling between going super early in the morning, like 4 am, or after school. As hard as it will be, I'm really leaning towards the early morning. Plus I only have to get up early 3 days a week. I would go Monday and Tuesday, take Wednesday off, and then go Thursday and Friday. But I don't work Fridays so that is not a problem. If I wait until after school, I know that I will skip more times than go. Plus, going after school makes the day longer and I like to come home and relax after school. I'm thinking about trying it next week while I am still off and see how it is. Plus we have to rearrange the dogs in the mornings. We've been taking them to the park all summer, but we will have to start walking them again. They won't mind. So I would get up, go to the gym, walk the dogs, and then get ready for work. That makes for a long morning. But, if my schedule holds, I'll have first period free 2 days a week. That would make things easier. It really is all just a matter of being highly organized and on top of things. I just will have to work hard at it.
Okay, I'm being a bit of a bum today since tomorrow kind of kicks things into high gear. I'm going to lay down and watch some TV.
Tomorrow I turn 60. In many ways, I can't believe it. Honestly! I never thought I would live to see this age. I grew up during the hei...
