Not to whine or anything.

August 15, 2007

Journal, Lauren

I hate when people say how busy they are, because I can’t possibly believe it.  The only busy person in the world is me when I’m working hard.  Everybody else must just be faking it.   Same with being sick.

We’ve had the good fortune to have some extra days to work in our rooms this week.  Tomorrow the lead teachers are off to a conference with Annette to learn good things and be better teachers.  It was nice to have extra time, though I quickly fell into the trap of making a list, then doint lots and lots of things that were never on the original list.  I’m hoping that we really do get back on Saturday night so that I can finish things up on Sunday.  (This picture was taken early in the day, so it’s not quite this bad anymore.)

Paint, lumber, tools, and a big ol' mess.

    I can’t make a long comment right now, because I’m really busy, but I’m glad your classroom looks a little messy. It makes me feel better about mine. 🙂

    Who am I kidding, that has nothing to do for being busy. I just wanted to whine to.
