How did October get here so quickly?
I can't believe it's already time to link-up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade!
Listening: I've had the worst cold for the last week. I finally went to the doctor yesterday to find out that I have a sinus infection. They also talked me in to getting the flu shot. All I know is that I want to feel better and the air purifier greatly improves my chances of breathing!
Loving: I'm not only sick, I am truly exhausted. I can't remember ever being so tired after the first month of school. It's been nonstop. Meetings, trainings, learning new kiddos, taking on new positions. Busy, Busy, Busy! Needless to say, I need the weekend to rest, even though it will honestly be filled with grading and lesson planning. :-(
Thinking: About making some adjustments to reading groups and rotations now that I am getting to know my kids. Oh, and I need to grade essays. Why do I already see this amazing weekend slipping away?
Wanting: I keep waiting for each year to get easier. I don't know if it's because I am type A or what, but this year actually seems harder than any before. And that's after 9 years of teaching. I am used to things falling in to place by now, but we have a lot on our plate at my school this year and I just see that everyone is wiped out. For all of our sakes, I hope that our loads start to lighten ASAP!
Needing: I need me time! I can't remember the last time I read a book or spent a whole day with my husband. I need more days like that to maintain my sanity throughout the school year!
Trick or Treat: I'm newly obsessed with pumpkin pie Blizzards from Dairy Queen. They are pretty amazing! But you want a treat for you, don't you? Follow my Facebook page and you can definitely get some amazing flash freebies. Not only that, but I am close to being ready for another fantastic giveaway to celebrate a total of 300 followers. You don't want to miss that! How's that for some treats?
Happy almost weekend, friends! I hope you are a bit less stressed than me!
