December 18, 2009

It's 4:00 am and I am awake because this day is going to be crazy, and I'm a bit anxious. I just thought you'd like for me to share my random early morning thoughts with you.

It's the last day of school before Christmas Break. As a teacher, that's one of the best days of the year. I'm very excited!

Our faculty has decided that today is tacky sweater/Christmas ensemble day. As if teachers haven't been wearing tacky sweaters everyday since Thanksgiving.

However, I plan to look atrocious. There's money involved.

Kevin has a meeting this morning which means I am responsible for getting three kids to three locations on time, all while dressed atrociously.

I'm supposed to take cupcakes to Londyn's party. I 'm not going to the party. She can't be at school before 8:30, I have to be at work at 8:30. (she generally rides a bus from daycare to school, but I don't anticipate they are willing to transport cupcakes.) I've still not quite got this one figured out.

I need to wrap a book for Skylar to take for a gift exchange and send her to school with juice boxes.

I need to wrap and distribute gifts to all of the kids' teachers as well as all of the people I work with.

Before dropping the kids off, I have to purchase 2 more gift cards because I miscalculated the number of teachers and helpers that I needed to buy for.

My main concern of the morning is that I may not be able to make my morning drink stop at QT because I will have all the kids with me, and I may be a little embarrassed to go in public in my tacky attire.

The good news is, if I can make it until 4:00PM today, all will be well with the world!

I just LOVE Christmas, don't you?

I was just thinking yesterday about when I was teaching and how great it was right when Christmas break was starting! Enjoy your time off!
