Summer Vacation....well kind of

Busy! Busy! Busy!

Whoever said that teacher's have the summer's off are cra cra!

Here is my summer schedule:

  • One week of Common Core Training 
  • Week long Cruise with the Girls (that's my one sanity break)
  • Ten days in Texas for my Sister's Wedding
  • Four days of VIMS/gradebook manager training in July
  • Five days with the kids at Fort Wilderness (hubby doesn't go so that's like work)
  • One day of VSET training in August
  • Two more days of VIMS/gradebook manager training in August
  • Paint my kitchen (it has been the same color for 20 years)
  • Pack up my classroom after 20+ years (this activity has to fit into any open space that I have)

I'm hoping to fit a day or two of relaxation in there, but those kind of days are looking slim.

Oh, and I know I left you hanging on my last post. Unfortunately, you still have to dangle for a little while longer.

I am not officially allowed to discuss my new position.  I must remain undercover, incognito for a little while longer.

But believe me, I will let you know as soon as the muzzle has been removed.  All I can tell you is that I am excited (with a touch of overwhelmed).  After all, wouldn't you be overwhelmed if you were possibly leaving the classroom after 20+ years.

Which brings me to my next question, WHERE DO I PUT ALL MY STUFF?

I have accumulated quite a lot of loot after all these years.  I don't want to just give it away just yet because of that underlining question...WHAT IF I END UP BACK IN THE CLASSROOM?

I need some suggestions.  I don't have a garage and the room I will be moving to is a portable that doesn't have any storage.

I have been looking on pinterest for some ideas but really haven't seen anything that makes me go "Yes, that's it! That's what I will do."

So, if there are any teachers out there that have experienced this problem...  Please share your ideas with me.  I would love to hear from you.

In the meantime, I will try to keep up with my hectic "summer vacation."  At least I have my CRUISE WITH THE GIRLS next week.  I am looking forward to a little "just for me" time.

Until next time, Happy Blogging!
