Busy Busy

I have been extremely busy lately. I have felt even busier than I've actually been. My stress level hasn't exactly been low lately.


School starts in less than 48 hours. Thursday is the first day of school for the 2010-2011 school year.

I do not feel ready. AT ALL!!

I blame some of this on the fact that we have a brand new middle school building. Sure it is GREAT! It comes with some very exciting technology that I can not wait to use. But there are some downfalls as well. Like it still isn't completely finished. I have walls hanging out of my wall still and my stripper pole closet (more on that in a later post) doesn't have a door yet.

All of this I could deal with it if that was the only issue.

But I'm not ready with lesson plans either. Math intimidates me. I'm not even going to lie. I have no idea what I'm doing. To be honest I've been very much like my students putting off my to do list thinking I had all the time in the world. But I don't. Thursday is right around the corner.

I haven't been too concerned because for this week I'm just going to be in survival mode. Getting to know my students and letting them get to know me. We have all these students and the possibility of hiring new teachers so I figure their schedules will be changing over the first few days. That makes it hard to start too much.

But enough about school. Through my quiet time God has given me a verse to live by for the year. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 I am definitely clinging to that.

I am really looking forward to the weekend. I am going camping with my parents. I haven't done that since I was a little girl. It is going to be some awesome quality time with the parents and some yummy camping food. I don't know why but everything taste better when you are camping. My daddy is going to cook me scrambled eggs and bacon one morning. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it and there aren't many foods that do that.

Okay now that I type this out I feel like I'm not that busy. Maybe overwhelmed is a better word.
