It's been two weeks of sporadic posting, have you noticed? The theft and subsequent recovery of my truck (the local Ford dealership is taking good care of it right now~ I hope to be "back in the saddle" on Wednesday), the family's sniffles, coughs, and general we-feel-yucky-ness, and a full schedule at work have left me exhausted and ready to snooze as soon as I walk through our door each afternoon. Surprise visitors, this non-self-cleaning house, and my time lag thanks to springing forward didn't help my energy level either. Have you ever had a week where you just felt off?
Here's to fresh starts~
Despite my exhaustion, I still found blog inspiration everywhere this week. I've got some posts formulating in my mind regarding die cuts, end-of-the-year classroom preparation for the upcoming school year, my itty-bitty banners (not just the bitty ones), an essential starter kit of must-have items for the beginning of the school year (and no, I'm not talking bulletin board trimmers and sharpened pencils) that I'd recommend to new teachers, questions regarding merit pay for teachers (and you thought this blog was all cuteness and fluff!), and of course, links to other bloggy goodness that you might want to go and enjoy for yourself.
Keep your fingers crossed, I hope to enjoy several chunks of sitting-down-at-the-computer time today, posting entries into the queue before my impending fuller-than-full schedule knocks on my door this afternoon.
(And really, how many dashes-between-words CAN I use today?)
This will keep my energy up this week:
