I love the sound of the nighttime silence in my house. it is so very very good. My son has never been a good sleeper. Well, he sleeps great...it's getting to sleep that is an event unto itself. Drinks and bathroom and light on and so on and so forth. It's a big sigh of relief when he settles. And then a cow could lay on him and he'd never know he sleeps so deeply.
I am loving this weather!! I think I mention weather in every blog post. But these warmer days are making me one happy chiquita!!
I am thinking my classroom is in some post apocalyptic movie (hopefully staring Brad- or better yet Channing Tatum). You all know this time of year- there are no "good" pencils. They have all been sharpened to a shadow of their former self. And an eraser? Forget it! That's finding a needle in a haystack. There are 3 markers that still work well...and they are all brown. A good glue stick is even harder to find than a pencil with an eraser. I've been letting them use glue bottles- that ain't pretty!! And the kids- well they have given up on you too...I am like a clown juggling fireballs with whistling Yankee Doodle trying to keep them engaged and attentive. Thank goodness for field trips and all the fun stuff we save til the end. I can't wait to clean every drawer and closet and get ready for a fresh start!!
Which leads to me wanting some alone time at home and school! I have a hard time getting stuff done anywhere. Someone is always on my heels! It's good to be loved though!
Therefore I need vacation...like now...if not sooner. 12.5 days- I can do this....Just keep swimming.
And that vacation will include a good book- I am embarrassed to say I haven't read a real book since the Hunger Games over a year ago! Ack. And I love me some yummy drinks (Smirnoff Ice anyone?) and some good snack-age. I could care less about a meal- especially in the summer. Savory salty snacks followed by sweet desserts. Yum!! Time to go raid my frig!!
