Yesterday I decided to put my toe into the water, so to speak. I went to work! Yes – it’s like I forgot I had a job, and then all of a sudden I woke up out of this summer’s dream and, of course, the crummy weather kind of pushed me along to remind me that I have a place to go for ten months out of the year, a reason to get up in the morning….
I only spent two hours there – I checked in my supplies purchased in June from School Specialty. I bought a lot of cool things! Canvas panels, watercolor pads, and tagboard. Glazes, glue sticks and new pencil sharpener inserts! I am excited to start the new year. It is going to be soooo fun!
Wow, I am so fortunate to have this job and this beautiful, huge classroom! The maintenance folks painted the walls and waxed the floor. They put all the furniture back exactly as I had it before, as per my hand-drawn map.
There is a lot to do still – like putting the new supplies away, adding posters and prepping materials for the first lessons. Can’t go today because I think they are waxing the hallway floor. But, soon! School starts September 7th.
