That's what the Doctor told me I had this morning. I was up most of the night coughing and felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I am so tired of being sick! Today is going by very slow, even though we had a late start. I am not doing a lot of teaching today and I am trying not to get frustrated when the kids come up and ask me questions like, "what are we doing next?" or "when is recess?" Those questions drive me crazy!! Hopefully the day will go by faster after lunch and then I can go home and cuddle up with Maddie and fall asleep. I am so ready to feel better again.

Snow and Ice

This morning we got delayed until 9:oo and it was great! I know some teachers get grouchy because it messes up their schedule or the kids are too crazy, but I love it! Today I only had 12 kids at school, 6 were absent. We did activities on the floor and had a lot of fun. Since there was less kids, it was much easier to teach Math. (Even though when those kids get back they will have to catch up!) It is still very icy outside and tomorrow we don't start until 10! wooo hoooo! Matt leaves tomorrow with his Grad School Association to drive to Dallas for a Corporate Trip. Hopefully the roads will stay clear. Say a prayer for them! I always hate it when he leaves, but it is always so nice to see him after he has been gone. I will be heading to Colorado Thursday with Ashlye (Matt's sister) and Maddie! We are going skiing with my family!! It is going to be so fun and it will be soooo nice to get away for vacation and not have to think about work! Well friends, have a good week and drive safe!

Back to Reality

It's back to school! Yesterday I actually felt really motivated and my kids were so good for me. I think they were excited to be back and ready to learn! It is strange being back in Lubbock. It was so nice to be around all of our friends and be able to go see them whenever I wanted to. Also, the break was SO NICE! Being able to sleep in until 10 every day was awesome. Now that January is here there is so much to do. I have a workshop in two weeks (that will be nice to sleep in until 8!!) and the middle of the semester starts TPRI testing and teacher work days! I am hoping time will fly by! 186 days until our wedding! EKK!! I can't wait!! I'm off to sleep, tomorrow is HUMP day! Yay, one more day closer to FRIDAY!!!
