Things I love about snow days: Sleeping in. FInally getting to cook that recipe that only takes 4 hours in the crock pot. Painting by numbers (yeah, I still do that). Catching up on Hulu and Netflix.
Things I hate about snow days: When all my teacher friends decide to wake me up with the “No School!” text. The panic that sets in when I realize I’m supposed to have a concert tomorrow and district assessment in two weeks (which is during the SOL window).
I think the positives outweigh the negatives. And if not, I can push my feelings away with girl scout cookies.
I completed my end of year checkout. I’m done. Everything has been packed away, and my room looks completely empty (and much larger than normal).
It’s a surreal feeling. I don’t quite comprehend yet that I don’t have to work from 7:45 am to 3:20 pm on a daily basis until August. It hasn’t quite sunk in that I won’t see any kids until August.
I’m grateful for the break. It’s time to refresh my brain, study up on things I have let go, and catch up on a LOT of TV shows.
I’m sure that soon I will miss the children and go back in to my office to continue the organization process, but for now, I’m happy to sit on my couch and watch about a bagillion things in my Netflix queue.
