Today was REALLY hard. I know I REALLY shouldn’t complain, because, as a teacher, I did enjoy the entire week off of work last week. But today was REALLY, REALLY hard.
I was actually looking forward to the extra week in the holiday season this year because it always seems like we have so much celebrating to do, and so little time to fit it all in (terrible problem to have, I know.) But today, looking ahead FOUR WEEKS until we break for Christmas, I’m not sure I will manage it all.
This truly is the most wonderful time of year, and it’s because of all the wonderfulness that it was SO VERY hard to hit the books today. Usually I can compartmentalize my time almost seamlessly between work and school, and sometimes get most of it done, but this time of year my home list is LONG, and honestly, my brain hurts as I switch back and forth. This is when it would be amazing to have my very own personal assistant just following me around and making all the random things that plop into my brain happen…
Order Christmas Cards
Buy extra tree lights
Look up recipe for staff lunch
Get present for book club
Schedule Christmas Celebration with everyone
Take Christmas picture
Get Christmas smelly candle
Organize Christmas Movie Marathon
Family Bond–well, I think I could do that one all on my own. It’s the part that all the other leads up to…if I can just switch back and forth faster!
