Did ya miss me?

Here's the started so I don't have a lot of free time these days.  And I forgot to download our pictures from Chelan from Mom's camera.  She took a lot of great ones and I didn't take a single one on my camera.  I'll try to update soon. 

Chelan is really the best way to end my summer.  Three days in the sun.  Three days in the pool with my kid.  Yea, I got tan.  And I had fun.  So.  Much.  Fun.

So until that post, let's see what other random thoughts come to mind.

School is kicking my ass only because I'm so freaking tired. Apparently, I had blocked out forgotten how frantic the start of the year is for our team.  We have two new administrators so things are going very smoothly, despite their "newness" to the job.  For me, there is a huge difference because I know exactly what is coming and the learning curve is much smaller.  Instead of being told what my job is (i.e a coworker says, "hey, Michelle, you're in charge of picture day."  Me:  "Oh.  I am?  Ok.  Picture day is tomorrow?  Oh, ok...I'll get right on that."); now I know what to anticipate and am prepared and organized. And I'm not reinventing the wheel because it turns out I wrote amazing notes to myself at the end of each event last year (and completely forgot I had done so).
  The ASB students are fantastic.  Get this:  40 kids cut out paper  "Liberty L's" for 1200 students, wrote a name for EVERY student on a L, and hung them up on the main walls to welcome back kids on the first day of school.  Cute, right?  I'm super excited to work this crew.

But I'm tired.  At least this year, I committed to staying away from my emails or listen to voice mails at home this year.  So far, so good.  When I'm home, I want to be home. 

So tonight, Alexander is at my parents and Eric and I watch are The Expendables.  And I'm blogging because a movie with aging 80's action stars is NOT keeping my attention.

And blogging is keeping me from falling asleep on the couch.

Tired. Very. Tired.

  1. I love that! "When I'm home, I want to be home." Sounds simple but how many of us can't keep away from our cell phones and emails?!

    Good luck this school year! I'm sure you'll be great :)


What say ye?
