Well, Sunday evening is here, the weekend is just about done and I haven't done a darn thing for school. I have managed to do most of my 18 loads of laundry, but there are still clothes to put away. I have managed to clean the bathrooms, vacuum up the house and get things organized. Hubby cleaned the kitchen and threw some things out, so it looks much nicer than it has in years! Feels good to get something done, but I know there is still more to do for tomorrow. And it's not looking good!
I didn't bring a single TE home. Why? I have no idea! When I finally left on Friday, I was in such a hurry to be home with my hubby to get his test results for the BIG test he took in Feb, that I just left school. I grabbed some things for report cards (haven't started), my pinks and blues (still blank) and a couple things to do for Open House (not done). Actually, my school bag is still in my car at this time (almost 6pm!) and I haven't thought of getting it out! Oops! For those of you hoping for a Frog and Toad unit for Houghton mifflin...sorry...it ain't happening this week! Too much to do!
As the year is quickly coming to an end, I have less and less motivation to be creative. My brain is almost on vacation and is already planning for next year. I have been reluctant to do anything for school for next year til this year is over, but it is hard to want to do anything at all. I will be a ball of stress next weekend with having to complete everything - report cards, grades, cleaning my room - but it will be nice to say that there is just one week left.
So, there are 10 days left. 10 days to spend with my kids, who honestly, I am done with. I have some super kids, but I feel I have taken them as far as they can go. They have worked hard, come very far and are ready for 2nd. Then there are those that I feel I haven't done a good job with. I didn't motivate them enough for them to want to learn all they can. I still have 4 girls who could care less if they learn their addition and subtraction facts. They look at me like I am crazy. I don't know what more I could have done. Maybe next year!
After my math training last week, I am committed to providing better math instruction. I need to revamp some things anyway, so this will be a good refresher. I will end up bringing a lot home, just so I can plan, revise and create new things. My hubby may not like it, but he'll deal. He'll be busy with his iwn work then to be too bothered by my piles.
Well, it looks like dinner is ready. I guess I will eat a bit, maybe do some work and then head back to bed. I have to have my energy for the week to make it through open house. AAAAHHHHHH! It's all down hill after Thursday! I can't wait!
Happy Sunday all! Here's to a great week!
