Today I am #grateful for my beautiful clean and organized kitchen by @MamaChristine done with love, pride and care ❤
I am sad, but ONLY for today. Tomorrow I am promising myself I will no longer feel sad and start being happy and building my new life 🙂
Today I am sad mostly because my mom left to fly back home to NJ 😦 I really enjoyed having her selfishly all to myself. I kind of forgot she had to go back “home”.
So here is how I am going to find some happiness when I feel so alone ❤
Visit my school to see if I can set up my classroom a bit?
I am so nervous and at a loss. I have NEVER taught resource room and am anxious about how to set up, what I will embark on and how things are done here in SC. I am learning that things are so different and I am afraid of different and change.
So I am hoping to peek in on some co-workers rooms and get some ideas.
I DO know I want to keep it SIMPLE. That is what my motto is this year. Keep it simple.
I want to keep things simple for a few reasons. First, I will be teacher older students compared to my norm. Second, simple is nice, neat and organized (That is what I am going for) Third, less distraction for students (and me!)
Find a desk.
There is NOTHING in stock in white here in SC! THis weekend was tax free shopping for back to school supplies and such and the stores are depleted of a lot (PLUS crowded!)
The “jersey” in me is coming through. I WANT A DESK NOW!!!. I don’t want to wait and ORDER it! I Want to pick it up, put it in my car and have it now now NOW!
Ok, phew, glad I got that out.
So, after multiple stops to Target, walmart, home goods, tj max, etc, my WHITE desk search turned up ……….NADA
I am going to have to order online , which is ok 🙂 Now I can focus on other things………..
The beach (today I went for about an hour, just to walk a bit) It was high tide, so not the most pleasant, luckily I am not a beach “sitter” anyway, i like to move!
this is the FIRST time I have actually taken a dip and swim in the pool. All the trips here, I have not ONCE stepped foot in it……I had not allowed myself to “relax” I was always pushing to get things done and accomplished. Today I forced myself to go for a swim……and you know what? It felt AMAZING. The water was refreshing. In fact, it was the perfect temperature!
I also read my book for a bit by the pool and observed other vacationers and other owners 🙂
I feel a bit less stressed and worried……
- Do you live close or far from your family?
- Have you ever taught resource room? Any tips for me!?
- DO you prefer television or reading?
