This song pretty much says the way I feel tonight.
My school year has just started, but I already recognize that my schedule is poorly planned. There are days that seem smooth and easy, and days that are a wild roller coaster, such as today, when I taught 2nd grade (2 classes), 4th grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade (2 classes), all doing different things. By the time I got to the staff room to grab some lunch, nobody was left in there at all. Tomorrow's schedule includes 2 classes of 3rd grade, a different 4th grade class, and more 5th grade classes, so I tried to prep the paint and paper etc before I left today, but I was just so tired my legs just didn't want to be standing any more.
Of course, I had a busy weekend, with my son home for a visit before moving into a new apartment in Boston. We went to the lake, ate good food, cooked s'mores, played Bananagrams (he beat me), went kayaking, and even took a couple of nice brisk swims (though initially unintentional) in the chilly lake. So maybe I was overtired to start with.
On the flip side, my 6th graders are off to an awesome start on their passports, which I will show you and explain in a post when they are done. My classes have all been on best behavior, very enthusiastic about everything in the art room, and are excited about what we are doing and what I have planned for them. It's going to be a great year.
So hopefully with a good night of sleep I'll be singing a different song tomorrow.
