Don't worry - i'm not sick. this bug is specific to being Mike Jones' daughter. Its the "everything's getting cleaned" bug. For starters - my classroom. I'm going off track on Friday. Its recess & I've borrowed Sue's laptop, cause I needed a break. A Slow Down minute. My walls are already 90% down, and put away in an organized fashion. I'm planned 90% for that first week back. Its only Tuesday. I have spent the better part of today dejunking this classroom. My kids are loving life this week. We're reading lots of holiday books, followed with a holiday project. I'm loving it cause while they're working on a project, my heiny is getting busy cleaning. Its a thrilling feeling, to be organized & ready to go.
Oh & I've got lists made. List of people to get Christmas gifts for. Lists of people to mail Christmas cards to. Lists of things to remember to do before going off track. And lists of dinner dates/Christmas parties that I need to remember. Cause that would be a bummer if I forgot one!
For some reason, I can't stop singing (in my head, thankfully) this little ditty today:
Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat (go figure, hojo calls me goose!)
Please put a penny in the old man's hat (not my dad, no never! he's not old!)
If you haven't got a penny a hay penny will do.
If you haven't got a hay penny, then God Bless You!
My poor students. they're really the ones who suffer from a lunatic teacher, when I'm excited about something.
