A blessing in disguise x2

A couple weeks ago, our school got another teacher. Which meant that our support schedule changed. Just when everyone got into a great routine. And when I finally got mine... I was not happy. We get Chinese every day, which is great, but mine is at 8:45 in the morning. Which makes morning work and morning meeting practically impossible. Currently our Chinese teacher is not hired yet, so I still have that time to at least get morning work in. On Monday (the BIGGEST teaching day of the week for me usually) I have my kids less than I don't have them. At first this was just terrible to me. Now, it is still terrible because we barely can get RLA and Math in the day. BUT... my planning for next week is almost complete. I have one subject left to plan and then all the prep work to do. So that is blessing in disguise 1.  (Talk to me Wednesday or Thursday when I have no planning time and I will probably be singing a different tune.)

Blessing in disguise 2... I forgot my plan book at school this weekend. I almost freaked out (ok maybe I did freak out just a little) because how in the world was I ever going to get my to do list done.. when it was ON MY DESK?! Well... I didn't. End of story. And it.felt.great! I did not do any work this weekend except to grade a couple stacks of papers while my daughter slept and then I started planning reading for next week because I had a good idea. But I didn't do it because I HAD to. I did it because I wanted to. And that was wonderful! And because of all the planning time that I had today.... that to do list... almost all done anyways! I plan to try to finish the important things tonight after my daughter goes to bed. And I also plan to get a few posts ready for throughout the week! I am working on coming back... I swear I am!

And because I have been such a slacker, I am going to put everything in my store on sale for 15% off from tomorrow until Friday! Check it out here.

  1. Gina,

    When you talked about leaving your plan book over the weekend, panicking and then it being a blessing in disguise it really hit home for me. I am desperately grasping to find some sort of balance between being a mom and a teacher. I KNOW I just need to drop things and let go a bit but when your career is as much a hobby as it is a career that can be easier said than done.

    Thank you for sharing. If nothing else it is just nice to know that there are others out there experiencing the exact same thing.
