School’s Out!

Well, school is done – technically.  No students for a week at least.  I’ll be teaching a week of credit recovery for English starting June 6.  Yesterday was a long day.  I got to school at 8 a.m. and didn’t get home until 10 p.m.  It was a work day, but I didn’t really get any work done until after about 2:00.  When I got to school I found out that I had to get grades in by 11:00 which was really 9:30 for me since I had to go to graduation practice.  We had an end of year picnic and then I headed back to school.  I had to take care of paperwork stuff first and then I continued working on my room.  I spent much of the day cleaning out a large back storage area.  It had become the catch-all for just about anything and everything.  I have tons of empty boxes in there that I’m holding on to in case of a job change.  I cleaned until around 6:00 and I went to pick up some dinner and then went to graduation.  It was nice to see all my senior students and I got lots of good pictures. 

It was lovely to sleep in this morning.  I still find myself yawning, however.  Perhaps a nap is in order.  I had planned to give myself some actual vacation time this weekend, but I have to go to up to school because I need to get my t-shirt order file.  So I’ll probably do some cleaning again.  My house is a wreck though.  I’ve forgotten that it’s more difficult to keep a house clean when Josh is home.  I’m bad enough on my own.  With the craziness of school, late hours, and filling out numerous job applications, I haven’t had time to do laundry or dishes. 

I’m not sure how I feel about the upcoming job interview.  A part of me is scared that I might actually get offered the job and then have to deal with the internal debate of whether to make such a big move.  Then there’s the part that thinks I should step out of the box I’ve been living in for 20+ years where I haven’t really taken any risks.  I’ve lived in the same city since 1988.  But then again, I don’t know if I’ll even get offered a job at this point so no use worrying about things until something happens.

Wow, it sounds like you've been really, really busy. I'll bet you will be glad when you can kick back and actually enjoy your summer.
