Spring break begins Friday, and it cannot get here soon enough. By this point in the school year, I am in desperate need of a break. To make this week even more tiring, I have AM dungeon duty. I normally get up at 5:30, and I could still get up then and be on time for duty, but if I got up as usual, I wouldn't have time to get every thing ready in my classroom--booting up my laptop, getting the warm-up on the screen, etc. So, I get up at 4:45 when I have bus duty.
The nice thing about my classes this week is that my seniors reviewed for their Chaucer/The Canterbury Tales test yesterday and had the test today. They're doing their pilgrim presentations tomorrow, and their term exam is Thursday. My juniors "talked" me in to letting them go outside yesterday since it was such a gorgeous day. I had already decided that I was going to let them go out to do their assignment. Today, we discussed the story ("The Jilting of Granny Weatherall"...one of my faves.) Tomorrow and Thursday they will review, and their term exam will be Friday.
Even though I'm anxious for the break to get here, I'm going to start the week BUSY. I've decided to repaint the bedroom. It's been several years since we painted, and it needs it. Badly. So, on Saturday (or Sunday) we're going to move the bed out and push the rest of the furniture to the middle of the room and I'll get started on the prep work. The biggest part of my project will be done Monday and Tuesday. I think I can get it all done on those two days. THEN we're heading to the lake!
John just told me a little while ago that he has taken Wed., Thurs., and Fri. off. YEA!!!! Hopefully the water pipes didn't freeze and burst this year. Even if they did, the way we redid them last year will make it a whole lot easier to make repairs. I just don't want to have to do that, though. We'll be doing yard work, I'm sure.
Only three more days...I think I can make it!
Have a GREAT day!
