It’s Tuesday and time to share a slice at Two Writing Teachers.
I entered Memorial Day weekend in a panic. So many things scheduled. But at the weekend’s end, I felt calmer and ready to take on the hectic pace of the next 10.5 days of school for me.
But then, I got to school today and wowza! I felt the treadmill speeding up. Will I get done? The students are restless and I am restless.
Thank goodness one of my dearest friends came to school with me today and worked solely on getting ready for the used book fair. She sorted books all day and will return Thursday to work them.
Tomorrow is the volunteer tea. In the library. I hope it goes well. I feel the school year speeding to the finish line. A line in which I miss the last day and a half because of a state meeting for a philanthropic organization. And I am already hating that I am missing those days.
And today the weather is giving us a heat wave which will continue all week. So much. So fast.
It does seem to speed up near the end, doesn’t it? And with so much to accomplish. I missed the last couple of days a time or two – headed to Spain to see my daughter and once to CA for my niece’s wedding. It’s strange to not be there until the last hurrah. Good luck on those last 9.5 days! We still have 15 days plus a short morning the last day.
We have 12 days of school to go and are also having a heat wave. The end seemed so far away and now it is not. I keep reminding the kids to “finish strong”. I hope I take my own advice!
And still you wrote! I haven’t sliced since March! Yikes!
Yes, it was in the air and now with the turning of the calendar it takes monumental effort on everyone’s part to focus through til the end. Good luck!
