Spring Break

I don't know when I've looked forward to spring break with such anticipation.

I'm not doing anything exciting, really. Hubby and I went to a conference in Nashville on Saturday, then went to Louisville on Sunday and pretty much the rest of the week I'll be home doing yard work, knitting, reading, cleaning house, maybe some painting, and possibly cleaning out the garage (that depends on the weather). We may catch a movie or two, or just sit and get caught up on the DVD's. I'm also grading homework packets, but that's just what teachers do, I suppose.

But I'm so glad it's here.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the kids, who, as you well know, haven't been the best crop of seventh graders to come down the line are insane.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that the kids all lost their minds - even the normally good classes were horrid - after lunch on Friday. Since we eat lunch relatively early, it made for a rough day. A really rough day. Even Coach Math was at his wit's end.

Maybe it had to do with the fact that we had a fight in the hall fifteen minutes before the end of the day when kids were moving to their afternoon homerooms, and it involved a split lip, blood, and two morons who quite honestly need to learn to shut the hell up and stop calling people names, especially each other.

Maybe we all just need a break from each other.

I totally's nice just to sleep in...drink you coffee, watch GMA and relax! I teach at a year round school so I just came off of a 3 week break! Enjoy! said...

One more week for us here in California, but I did get out of town with some girlfriends just to have a change of scenery. Next week we're heading to Yosemite and San Francisco. I too am looking forward to just be away from the chaos.
