Here are my reasons for being in such a good mood:
– I vented in my previous post,
– my classroom is finished,
– the custodian responsible for our area last year is with us again,
– I’m having dinner with two of my favorite people (retired teachers),
– two students contacted me today saying how excited they are for my class,
– my parents arrive tomorrow,
– the sun is shining in a clear, blue sky,
– my dog is snoring loudly (which makes me laugh every time),
– I bought a new book to read (historical mystery – I forget the name), and
– I just need to make some copies to be ready for the first day (Sept. 4).
Besides all that, I’ve lost 20 pounds since Spring Break! Woo-hoo!
