Well. It's Sunday night already.
It is amazing to me how quickly a week can go, isn't it?
I managed to go the entire Spring Break without going to my classroom, which is actually not a good thing. I'm cringing thinking about how I left it on Friday, and I had really planned to go in and spend a day just getting things back under control, but it didn't happen.
All I did for school this break was to cut out a little laminating, grade a few papers, buy a few postcards, and download a million new school things from the Internet. That counts, right?
I spent the rest of the time discovering Pop Up Video Jersey Shore (yes, it's a guilty pleasure only made more addicting by the Pop Up Video factoids), inventing brownie chip pancakes (because I forgot we were out of chocolate chips), and finishing L.A. Noire with my husband (a fantastic video game where you are a detective in 40's L.A. and you have to determine if people are lying or not).
I'm not feeling too badly yet, but I know tomorrow morning I will feel all kinds of guilty.
I know, I know, we all need time off- but come on, taking just ONE day at school, I could have caught up so much! Is anyone else like that? I know in my head that we need a break, but it's so hard for me to let myself take one.
Okay, okay, I was at least a little productive. I took a tiny trip to Texas and got to show some support for my husband. I finally got around to getting my new IDs and making my new name 'official' during Spring Break (...despite getting married last summer). I finished my taxes after only a minor freakout.
I also started really posting regularly on this blog last Sunday, and it now has over 40 followers. (Definitely did not expect that to happen.) The benchmark of 50 followers is so close I can taste it- so here's a sneak peek at the week ahead:

Thanks so much for your comments and your willingness to take a chance on following a new blog. You have no idea the joy I feel when someone tells me they're going to use my idea in their classroom, or when I see that they've pinned one of my images on Pinterest. It makes me feel like, even though I'm a new teacher who probably should've spent a day of Spring Break making her room look like less of a disaster area, I must be doing something alright!
Have a terrific week!
