First day back

First off I have to say Happy Valentine's Day to those in the sand box (it's already Valentine's Day there), especially my amazing husband. I wish we were able to celebrate together. Even though we can't he did get me an amazing Coach purse that I absolutely LOVE!!!

Isn't it pretty?
I think he did a really good job this year, even from so far away!!! I just hope he gets and enjoys his Valentine's care package.

Now on to school. I have survived my first day back to work. It wasn't too bad. My substitute was there today to do the transition, which made it easier for me. She did all of the teaching so I could see where she was and how she was doing things. Tomorrow I must do it all on my own. It's weird, I have started almost every year teaching either a new subject or new grade level and have dealt with treading water to survive in the classroom, but I have never had this feeling of being lost and not sure what to do or where to start. It's a very strange feeling. We will see what tomorrow brings. Hopefully the students who were happy to see me continue to be happy for a few more days. I wouldn't mind a few days of good behavior before their attitudes start coming back. I have to say this group is the worst when it comes to attitudes, disrespect and laziness. I have seen my fair share of lazy, disrespectful students, I teach middle school after all, but I have never seen this many in one group! It's crazy!!! They are acting like it's May already and we haven't even done FCAT yet. (FCAT is Florida's horrible yearly state testing)

I can't believe I just got Little L to bed without having to lay with him. We had created a bad habit once the husband left of me laying with him to get him to go to sleep, but I think I have finally broken that habit. Now I just have to break him of waking up in the middle of the night. It's strange to have Baby E sleeping through the night at least 8 hours at a time and having Little L waking up in the middle of the night. One day I will get both of them to sleep through the night. :)

I guess I should get some school work done. I decided to do other things like play with my kids and look at things online instead of doing things for school, so now I must get it done. :)


  1. Good luck with the first day back teaching! Hope everything goes smoothly. :)

  2. LOVE the purse. :) Good job hubby.
    And I'm glad day one went good.


I LOVE comments!!! :) I promise I will write back if you leave a comment :)
