Yes, here it is- the last week of my summer vacation! Yesterday I went to the doctor, worked in my classroom for about three hours, collapsed on the couch for an hour, checked my email, and mowed the lawn. Didn’t seem like a vacation!
My doctor’s appointment was better than expected. My new medication level seems to be controlling my blood pressure. All my other numbers are good, except my weight of course. Back today for my bone scan. Haven’t had one in a few years.
I’m going to work in my classroom this morning. I don’t think most people realize how much work goes into setting up a classroom each year. Most rooms have to be somewhat “stripped” at the end of each year so walls can be repaired or painted, floors waxed, carpets shampooed, etc. That means that yesterday I was moving furniture and pulling boxes of supplies out of my closet. Today I will be moving more supplies, restoring bulletin boards, setting up centers, and making a shopping list. Tomorrow will be supply shopping and doing even more organizing. Thursday I’ll take care of a hundred details. Friday I am going to stay home!!! Next week we have workshops, meetings, and SCHOOL. Pray that I get a great class!
