...the first week of school

Whew! We made it! An exhausting non-stop week is behind us. Now to regroup, rest up, and be ready for Monday. Some highs and lows:

Highs--
  • Fun, cute freshmen who haven't quite figured out their schedules, locker combinations or my sense of humor.
  • Someone I had as a freshman is back to get her diploma--after having 2 babies. So glad she's back in school!
  • All but one of my newcomers from last year are back again this year.
  • Four new newcomers with that "deer in the headlights" look . :-)

Lows--

  • More work, less time to do it--thanks, budget cuts! (How NOT to live at school this year will be the challenge.)
  • Schedules that just don't work no matter how hard you try.
  • Bells weren't working ...but neither was the intercom...so maybe that should be a "high?" hmmm...
  • Too many boys sporting red shirts in the halls today...hmmm again.

And now...I'm headed out to blow off some steam...a beautiful afternoon for a ride.

Congrats on finishing your first week...I'm exhausted. I was able to ride to work twice this week -- what a great way to end the day. Have a restful weekend!

My thoughts are with you. I know so many of you in "the biz" that I truly feel your pain. You seem to handle it more evenly than some. June is just around the corner!

TOB--I hope you, too, had a restful weekend and are ready to go at it again!

LN--Scary how quickly June comes around again each year! So much to get done in such a short period of time.
