Stressed Out Yet? Yup.

I'm embarking on a very busy week... Family and friends in town, going away parties, attending a conference, cleaning, and prepping for school are filling my calendar this week. I've also volunteered to help another teacher friend with her classroom since she's switching schools this year. I normally like to be in the school early to setup my classroom. I'm known to be one of the first ones in and done because I like to take the last few days of summer to relax and get any last minute errands done before the craziness begins. This summer, though, that won't be the case and lemme tell you, it's starting to stress me out! I feel as though I've done a lot at home and we all know I've done PLENTY of shopping for school lately. But, I still have it hanging over my head that I need to actually get into my classroom and get things done. Is anyone else like this? I'm devoting a day (well at least a morning) this week to work in my classroom and try to get things started in there, but after that I won't have the opportunity to go again until the first week in August... The week before we have to report for inservices.

Anyway, thanks for putting up with my mini rant. I'm also excited to get in there and start putting stuff up so that I can take pictures and show everything to everyone!

PS~ I hit 100 followers today! I never imagined I'd get that many when I started this blog, but I'm so super excited to be a part of an online community of awesome and creative teachers. Maybe eventually I'll do a special giveaway... ;)


  1. I hear ya! We are not allowed back in until 2 days before our workdays start. NOT at ALL during the summer :( I would LOVE to get in there and get busy. Good luck!

  2. I also have so many things to do and now being hooked to pinterest I want to redo a lot of my bulletin boards. I went into my class once last week and hope to go back soon this coming week. I will also post pictures soon.

  3. I am right there with you. Just remember, somehow, someway, it always gets done...



Comments make me smile! :)
