Thankful, Stressed, and Ready to Shop



I hope each of you had a very Happy Thanksgiving today!  For those of you that braved the cold and the crowds tonight - I hope you found everything you were shopping for.  I wanted to take a moment to say that I am thankful for my salvation, my family and friends, my health, and for all those wonderful bloggers/TpTers that make my life just a little bit easier.  I am very thankful for my group of kiddos in my class this year too.

My family did something a little different this year.  Instead of cooking, we went out and ate.  We enjoyed the time together and there was no clean-up.  The only down side to this is that you do not have any leftovers to nibble on through the rest of the week.

I have not blogged in a while.  Every time I say I am going to blog more, something always causes me not to.  I think I am just overwhelmed with school and all the changes we have made.  It has been driving me nuts.  Now, I am having surgery on my foot on Wednesday and I will be out of the classroom for 8 weeks.  Talk about STRESSED!  I am a very OCD person, who has everything in the classroom put in a certain spot and I do things a certain way.  To think that a total stranger is going to be in my class, with my stuff, teaching my kiddos is really disturbing.  As of Tuesday afternoon, my principal still hadn't gotten someone to be my certified sub.  There is a chance I may not even get to meet this person before he/she is turned loose in my room with my kids.......this really bothers me and I am going to have to find a way to cope with it.  Not to mention I am going to be missing all the Christmas/Winter activities.  When I told my kiddos on Tuesday, there were some tears, some worried faces, and a lovely little one that told me she did not want me to be her teacher ever again.  She crawled under my reading table and refused to come out.  I was heart broken.  Please remember my class in your prayers over the next eight weeks.

I hope you have your TpT Wish Lists ready for the sale coming up on Monday and Tuesday.  I am putting my entire store on sale for 20% off.  Enjoy shopping!
