What is One Word That Describes Teachers in August?

I was ready. I was prepared. After all, I spent all summer planning for it.

The start of school.

But, no matter how ready I am, how much I remember from the last number of years, I am never truly ready for that "I cannot believe how tired I am" feeling.

Last week I could not cook for my family (thank goodness for pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches) and I barely saw my home (leave early, get home late).

I have not been reading my blogs. (I ran through them tonight and saw a recurring theme...back to school teacher tired. Amen, there are so many people out there that 'get it,' I am tired!!)

And the weekend wasn't much better. 

I have this wonderful teaching partner (Mrs. Jones) and we like to plan together (two heads are better than one), we didn't get finished on Friday, so we spent Saturday am at school putting the finishing touches on our week.

Today I finally feel like my old self. So much better. I'm smiling and meaning it.

And yes, we are loving singing with my guitar. Very soon I am going to have to learn some new songs...the two we sing are just not enough. Labor Day weekend plans?
Pin It!


  1. I totally empathise with you. We teachers are optimists because every year I think next start up we'll be prepared differently. We are organised. We are prepared but the exhaustion hits just the same. I may be on the other side of he world but I get it.

  2. The madness starts for me next week.
    Glad you're feeling a bit better:)

  3. I am right there with you - Tired! And sore feet - I don't think you mentioned that :)
    But the routines are starting to take hold, and they are starting to figure out my style, so yay for that!
    Next week's got to be better!


I love reading your comments. Thanks for leaving one!
