I am alive...

sort of.

I mean, I am breathing, so I am alive in that way. 

But, I. Am. Dead. Tired.

Teaching a new grade level, implementing new common core standards, walking 3 miles every day at work (literally...I've clocked it. that's how far my trailer is from everything), and waking up at 4:45 every morning after going to bed at 11:30 every night has completely worn me out! I'm just waiting for it all to slow down. But who am I kidding...we all know that it NEVER slows down!

I will say that I am LOVING second grade. I would say the biggest adjustment for me right now is the difference in the maturity level from third grade, but I start each morning with my Joyce Meyer devotional and I swear, it reminds me take deep breaths and show patience and love with some particularly challenging/whiney little ones through out  the day...well at least until dismissal which is crazy every day. We'll get there. WE WILL GET THERE.

I promise I will do a real post one day. I am not even going to say it will be soon, but it will happen again one day. 

Today, however, I slept until 9:00 (4 1/2 hours later than a typical week day), I am enjoying my coffee in my PJ's with College Game Day playing on the T.V. And I plan on staying on this couch, in my PJ's, with something other than coffee in my hand, while I pull on my Gamecocks and 12:20! And I will love every minute of my laziness! Even if I am working on SmartBoards while watching. 

And tonight, I get to do this...
Can't wait to celebrate with Megan!


  1. I can see the big difference between 2nd and 3rd grade....ahhh the beginning of the school year is always the busiest! good luck!

  2. You honestly just described my life right now. I switched this year from 4th to 2nd, and the difference blows me away. I'm more exhausted than I've ever been in my life! Good luck this year! I love your blog!
