This morning I got up early and headed to a grade-level planning meeting at a local breakfast joint. After our meeting (and several cups of coffee), I headed to school. I knew I had a long day ahead of me. I mentioned a few days ago that my mom was kind enough to help me out in my classroom. I thought that we made some good progress, but honestly after today I realize we had barely made a dent. We’d cleaned out a few drawers and wiped down the walls, but hadn’t done any of the heavy lifting or deep cleaning. And today… I was on my own. (Sorry in advance for the craptastic iPhone pictures.)
This was an intense workout. Manual labor ain’t no joke, y’all. As I was lifting, moving, and sorting through box after box… I found myself really regretting that upper body workout I did last night!
It took me 5 hours to get this far and the sad thing is… I still have a really long way to go. I have to decorate the bulletin boards, buy about a million school supplies, make table cloths and curtains, and furnish my “reading nook.” All in the next few days!
And don’t even get me started on this eye-sore:
Now I’m finally heading to bed! I’ve got another long day ahead of me, but at least all of the dirty work is over. Time to get my Young House Love on, classroom-style! I’m also taking a break tomorrow afternoon and treating myself to a hair cut and color… I deserve it!
