Slice of Life August 17, 2010

We had a wonderful week at the Cape last week, but have been having some re-entry problems. We both are missing the Cape terribly. Our first full day back it seemed we couldn't get out of our own way. We were both whiny and tired and restless. John started back to work yesterday and things where crazier than normal. People are moving offices and everything is in chaos. He's worked late both yesterday and today.

I'm having trouble getting motivated to do much of anything, and I sigh with despair every time I look at the calendar. I had a meeting at school yesterday, I have another one tomorrow morning, and Friday I'm spending the day at a conference out of state. Then next week I have to go in mid-week to get my classroom set up and we start teacher meeting next Friday. The following week the kids come. Where did the summer go???

I wish I was back on the beach in Truro, reading, swimming, and soaking up the sun.


  1. Summers always go by too fast. Perhaps you can relive your vacation through scrapbooking!

  2. Natalee,
    At least you don't have to deal with jet lag on top of your re-entry and snow.

  3. I think every teacher goes through this. The summer is never as long as it seems it will be. Days go too quickly. You just have to find that excitement for the new year and it won't seem so dreary.

  4. My sentiments exactly. We returned from our family vacation last week and whereas in past years the return has been the signal for my body to click into school-mode, I just can't seem to kick it into gear this year. Maybe our kooky weather in June (cold) has put my body clock off whack.
    I've got my first all day meeting tomorrow, maybe that will jump start my engine.
