A five minute post on where I've been and where I'm going:
1. We're in the last three weeks of school. Seniors finish this Friday (yes, Friday the 13th, how fitting) and everyone else finishes the 27th. With Seniors done this week, I have to get all their grades entered asap. Underclassmen need to know what they are missing so they can scramble to get their grades up. I've been doing a lot of grading.
2. StuCo is wrapping up, but that doesn't mean it's slowing down. We threw a big evening of fun last Friday, had an end of year senior evening called Senior Sunrise, have a dance for incoming 9th graders, an assembly, a end of year shin dig, and Induction. Not to mention having to attend Senior awards night, which lasts three hours usually.
3. I have to go to at least 3 graduations, if not 4. My sister's college graduation, my school's graduation, and one or two graduations of the girls I have been mentoring. Oh, and that's all within two days.
4. I have to finish teaching. And finish online teaching. And create, give, and grade final exams.
Wanna brief glimpse at my calendar as of late? I'll only go back to last Friday.

I kind of feel like this......Do you blame me?
I'm thinking Husband and I need a romantic night away after all of this.
But please note - I love almost everything about my job. It's just that this time of the year is INSANE. Someone asked me recently if things were winding down. Ha. They speed up and then come to a screeching halt. But I love it, I really do - at least, the part with the kids. The grading and planning I could use a break from. :)
