Link up little Dear Monday letters of your own below!
Dear Monday, You came so quick. You are following a pretty decent weekend, filled with a friend lunch, a bridesmaid-asking, many hours spent reading my Kindle, the first 4 loads of laundry I've done since *drum roll* JULY, and about 3,000 checked/graded papers. This week's plans are submitted, I don't have bus duty this week (thank GOD), and I feel a teense more prepared for this week. Let's go.
Dear Self, You were a wee bit unprepared for the fact that life would 110% CONSUMED by the start of school for 2 and a half weeks (plus the 6 weeks during the summer). I feel like I have a little better of a handle on things now, which is a little bit of a relief. Note to you, self- next summer, if I'm going to spend time up until 9:00pm the night before school starts on anything, it needs to be on lesson planning, not just frantically getting my room done. K? K.
Dear Class of Twenty-One Kids, You've made my life very interesting in the short span that you have been mine. You peer pressured me into painting my toe nails because I can feel you petting my feet while I read to you at the carpet. You make me feel like I've got moves when you compliment me so much after all the teachers did a surprise Party Rock flash mob for you at the Pep Rally on Friday. You make me feel important when you write letters in your Correspondence Journal that say that I am a good teacher and that you like my hair and want me to have a baby soon. You make me confused when I have to send home notes because you cut a nice boy's hair. This will be such an interesting year.
Dear Vince, Not seeing you this weekend made me appreciate how often I DO get to see you. You are my best friend and I really just enjoy my life WITH you more than anything else. Can we have a long-standing bear hug date for this Friday evening? Please?!
I want to know what the heck ya'll
have been up to lately!?
I feel so out of touch!
