Stressed Out.

Wow. This time of year hits a girl hard. I have been working my butt off at school while still trying to find enough time to take the boys to the pool, do laundry, make dinner, spend time with Andy, and general picking up around the house. Plus it is hotter than hot outside so I'm sweating all the while! At least our AC is working. I know a lot of people who've had trouble in that area. I'm on the verge of a panic attack to have everything done and ready by parent orientation tomorrow night. I also need to meet with my wonderful team to finish planning the first week of school and get all of our copies ready. Do you know how many things some elementary teachers have to write their student names on ? At least for me and my team we are writing 25 kids names on 22 different things. It is crazy how many things have to be labeled. Then, Friday is packed with meetings, meet the teacher, and last minute prep before Monday. My goal is to NOT work the weekend before school starts because I want to be home with my boys. It kind of hit me tonight that I have FOUR days until students. Then it is back to the grind. I love summer. I will really miss it. Wilson starts his school on Monday too. Summers just go tooo fast!
