As a school teacher...a middle school teacher...I try to forget about school for a few months during the summer. Ok, so I am always thinking about school, but just not thinking hard about it. Today I went to my classroom to try to unpack some of the boxes from my BIG move two doors over. Last year I taught sixth grade. This year I teach seventh grade and 2/3 of the sixth grade...English. So I had to move...why, I don't know...maybe so I would be forced to move some of the materials and supplies that I have been hoarding for the last four years. In my old room I had a closet bigger than my bedroom. Now I have a closet smaller than my bathroom closet.
I took my two year old with me. Luckily one of my colleagues had thought ahead for me and scheduled for one of our former students to come in and "entertain" while I was literally throwing things in the closet. I am secretly hoping that it is a Mary Poppins closet...and you can put endless amounts of items in there and then find them exactly when you need them. I don't think that it is. I think it will be a big mess when I need markers in about a week. My two year old was done about two hours into the closet expedition. It was longer than I thought he would last.
Next week at this time I will have completed two preservice days in preparation for the upcoming school year. I love my job, I really do...but I don't want to think about it yet...just a few more days and then it's back to the everyday...until June.
Well, a few more days of crafting and looks like I will be a weekend crafter again. Looking forward to the fall shows and to good sales on etsy. Visit my etsy store to see what I have been working on www.countrycreationsoffl.etsy.com
