T- Minus 3 and Counting

Well, it is finally here. when I leave here today I will not return until early Monday morning for the very first day of the 2009/2010 school year. The preparations are already done. My room is straight, clean, smells good, looks pretty....and I am sitting here blogging because I am ready! I am ready for my 90 students to arrive on Monday morning. I am so excited I cannot contain myself. I have my itunes up and running and I am just shaking with delight. I have rearranged decorations in my room countless times this morning. I have cleaned all the desk tops. I have moved furniture around til I finally just decided to leave it where it was. I have sat in my room and listened to happy people in the halls talking to each other. It is a joyous day in Karendom. My world is in harmony and all the planets are aligned. God I love what I do! It is days like this that I remember why I teach and I am glad this is my chosen profession. I truly believe that I was born to do this. I am no different from any other teacher....I look forward to the summer...but about week two I am looking forward to coming back. I miss this place when I am not here...it is in my blood. I guess if you cut me I would bleed chalkdust. Tomorrow, Mary and I are going consignment shopping in Birmingham. I have scouted out several places we want to visit and I am excited about that too. So as today ends...it is T minus 3 and counting. I can't wait for liftoff!

How exciting!!!

On the other hand, I'm at my wits end with The Bella and I cannot wait for her to start school TOMORROW!!! Why they go for one day I have no clue, but I'll take it! She is giving me fits and I'm so glad I survived the whole summer without completely losing my mind!

KK, I am more excited for school to start this year than I have been in a long time! The morale around the old place is so much better, don't you think? I pray that it lasts.

Enjoy your weekend, and I'll see ya bright and early Monday. I'm sure I'll be there sometime between 6 and 6:30.
