Not Me Monday...



It's hard to believe I'm choosing today to start this, since it's a crazy week, but I guess there's no time like the present. And since there's still time in this Monday, I'll give it a try.

After an enjoyable Thanksgiving break from school, I did not completely forget that there were only three weeks of classes before Christmas break. So much to do in so little time I thought, Cristmas program being at the top of the list. How can we accomplish this in only three weeks? Then I did not totally freak out when I realized last Monday that the Christmas program is this Thursday, not next Thursday.


Once I got over the initial panic, I did not work 64 hours last week transposing music, writing narrations, finding music, practicing with students, etc. When trying to get students to cooperate and focus, I did not bride them to have a good practice. Nope. My students are always focused on the task at hand, because they love to make me happy. They would never goof around when I'm trying to teach them something.


The highlight of the week was Friday when I did not stay at school until 11:30 p.m., telling myself I don't care how late I'm here tonight. I'm NOT doing anything related to school tomorrow! Saturday is MY day.


Saturday arrived and I did not stay in bed until 11:00 a.m. reading a book and just generally being lazy. That would be a waste of time, wouldn't it?


Here it is Monday and again, I did not work 11 hours today. After all, putting up a bulletin board for preschool shouldn't take that much time, should it? And it would be WAY too crazy to try to put Christmas lights around the edge, and when it didn't work the first time I did not take them all down and try again, adding another hour to my fight with the lights.

Only a fellow teacher would appreciate this post.
I feel your pain. I now teach 2nd graders, but I taught preschool for so so so many years.
Hope your program goes off without a hitch. (Not that they ever do, but at least parents of little ones always think it's adorable.
