They Say It’s Wonderful

Two days in, and I am truly enjoying summer. It’s in the good way too – where I’m staying productive and busy so I don’t feel guilty, yet I’m balancing it with delightful non-stressful days.

For example, I’m getting up around 8:30, exercising, eating breakfast (I really like Raisin Bran Crunch right now), playing “Super Mario Sunshine”, running errands, and going to school.

Yes, still going to school. Consumed with field trips, grades, assemblies, and general end-of-the-year craziness, I decided not to rush the cleaning of my classroom. We’re required to box up and clean out all surface areas in the room (including walls and bulletin boards), cover bookcases and such with butcher paper, and stack everything off the floors. I’ve rushed that the past couple of years, throwing papers into boxes thinking that I’ll file them “later”. This year, though, I decided the time had come to get organized again, so I’m doing it with leisure and pleasure. I’ve put in a couple of hours each day, so it’s slow going, but it’s rather relaxing to sort and file without any students or lessons or grading to worry about.
