Back to Reality

Today is the last day of Spring Break. It's back to work tomorrow. Thankfully it is only a four day week.

Someone (okay several people) asked me if I was ready to go back to work tomorrow. I'm not dreading it at all, but I'm also not just dying to go back. I love my job and I know that as soon as I see my students tomorrow, I will realize how much I've missed them this week. But I have also really enjoyed my time at home this week.

I started the week with a huge to do list. I've been able to mark off some of the items on that list. There's still a lot left though. And you know what? I'm okay with that. My week has been restful and I feel like that is more important than getting through a list.

Yes, I'm writing lesson plans tonight for tomorrow, but oh well. They will get done and probably won't be much worse than if I had done them earlier this week.

This week is going to be busy. Getting up in the morning and getting back into my routine will be exhausting enough. My house is a complete wreck right now and I hope to take care of that this week. I also hope to finish up those last items on my to do list.

As I type this I realize I am ready to get back into the swing of things. As much as I enjoy staying home everyday, it doesn't mesh well with my personality. I seem to linger towards depression when I'm home all day every day. And when I go out it gets expensive. HA! Work is a good place for me to be. I don't get bored and I make money instead of spending it.

Speaking of spending money, I have been jean shopping all week. I HATE THIS!!! I was very frustrated today and ready to give up when I finally found jeans that I like and that fit. Two pairs at that!! I was so stinkin' excited. I did a little happy dance in the dressing room. I'm pretty sure the husband was just as excited. He might have been getting a little frustrated with me. Oops!

Okay I have more to tell you but I really need to get back to those lesson plans. More later.


  1. I am totally not ready to go back. Thankfully it's a 4 day week, but I did not get as much done as I would have liked...and the weather sucked last week, so that totally doesn't help. Time to get off my soap box and suck it up! :)

  2. So let's see the jeans! What kind are they and where did you get them?

  3. Tell us more about those jeans... I'll be in the market for new jeans soon and I'll need tips - I've pretty much only bought maternity clothes in the past 3 years so I'm so out of the shopping loop!

  4. I know what you mean about staying at home and then going shopping bc you are depressed. I used to be the exact same way. Over the last few years, I have gotten out of that. I think I am just more comfortable with myself than I used to be. Now, I am ready to quit working and stay at home everyday!!! ha!
