Just Say No


I am feeling HUGELY overwhelmed right now. Progress reports go out next week and I'm not finished putting my grades in my gradebook. Heck, I haven't even graded any Language Arts papers, or social studies. My kids are good, so yesterday I graded some while they revised their stories, and while they took their math tests. I thought about skipping lunch (just eating in my room), but I want to talk to my grade level about the PTA program.

I'm chairperson of the website committee. Mind, I can't get into my OWN website, so I have to contact someone to set me up.

Our PTA program is coming up in less than 3 weeks. I want to do Scooby Doo and the Haunted School, but that means I have to write and choreograph at least 3 dances. I have a young teacher who will help me, but I don't know about the other three.

I need to stop at HEB for celery this AM for science.

I have 4 Gateway entries yet to judge.

Critique group is Saturday at 10. No WAY will I have time to read their stuff, even if they sent it this minute, so I'm bowing out - third month in a row :(

So what did I do last night? Made a collage of my new book. I'm out of glue, so will take a picture tomorrow. Then I went to bed at nine and woke up at 5:15! Late for me!

I find that when I'm totally buried with tasks to accomplish, I don't know where to start.

So I play a video game. Or wash the dishes.

It's hard.

Hang in there!!

I don't want to live a life where getting up at 5:15 a.m. is late.

Marianne, I do Just the Same! It's like I'm on overload or something. Actually, I made a list and it helped a lot.

LOL, Natalie! It's Sunday and I've been up since 4:30.
