I hate packing

I'm totally exhausted but wanted to at least post briefly before I leave for Florida. I'm taking my laptop with me, but I'm not sure about internet connections while I'm there... hopefully I'll be posting some during my trip. I really intended to be more ready before tonight, but it's just not possible. I should resign myself to the fact that I will always wait until the last minute for everything and should assume that most things will take 4-5 hours more than anticipated.

I had intentions of getting more things done at school today... that is until our internet decided to freak out and not let me on to a very important page that I really HAD to access today. It is the site that allows me to register for speech tournaments and since I'm going to be gone this weekend and another teacher is taking my students to the tournament this weekend, I really needed to be able to print out a list of students going and their events. I ended up having to go to the admin building so I could access the page... but of course as soon as I got back, one of the tech people at the high school figured a solution to the issue.

Then there was the issue with my underwear today. I don't know if the underwear has stretched, my butt has shrunk or it's just too big to handle my underwear, but well... I had issues with it staying up today.

Because I didn't get the things done I needed to during the day, I had to stay after school to get things ready for my sub and to get my tournament information ready for the other teacher that's taking the kids to the tournament. I anticipated staying an hour and a half... that actually turned out to be three hours. I got home at 7:30, had to cook dinner, then do laundry, then pack. I appreciate the opportunity to go to Florida, but at this point I'm wondering if it's worth it given my sanity at the moment. O.k. maybe I'm exaggerating a tad, but packing is still a pain in the butt. But I'm so excited that I get to use my new computer backpack... that makes it all worth it. Just in case you're wondering about me this weekend... here's where I'm staying... and here's where I'll be working. It is kind of a strange place for me to be considering I've never even shot a gun.

Well, I have to get to bed... I'm leaving way before the crack of dawn in the morning.

You are totally crackin' me up. I am reading this post, and then midway through, you are talking about underwear problems. You are such a riot! Thanks for the little laugh.

Comfortable undies are a must! Hope you had a great time. It looks like a beautiful place.

When my underwear doesn't stay on I always assume that it's because my butt has shrunk. So we'll assume that for you too. Congratulations! Cheesecake all around!
