Greetings, Lovely People. I have not died. Although–ask me again on Friday, I may have a different answer.
Regular readers (you guys are the bestest) know that I’m turning teacher this year. I’ve been madly dashing around Doing Things for the past couple of weeks (this includes a hop-skip-jump over to Arizona to learn how to do my job), and we have finally reached the point of culmination–the First Week of School.
Technically, classes don’t start until Thursday, but there are all sorts of goings-on in the days before. And, because I don’t know how to leave well-enough alone, I am slowly trying to revamp my classroom in colors more suitable to my personality (my color palette, for those who are interested, is aqua, coral, navy, and bits of gray. Delish!). I’ve ordered fabric for a new drapery panel for my window and a skirt for an end table to hide some storage. I am also planning to reupholster an office chair that’s been lurking in my parent’s basement. I have fun yet sophisticated fabric for my bulletin boards. I’m even planning to do a fabric panel under the shelves on my desk.
And, of course, I’m also doing lesson plans, developing curriculum (this is what happens when you create a class from scratch!), making copies, learning new software, and attending meetings upon meetings. If you didn’t want to be a teacher before, I bet you do now, right??? 🙂
All that to say. . .
It’s probably going to be quiet around these parts for the next few weeks. I have over a dozen post drafts just waiting for pictures, but I simply can’t focus on that right now. Priorities!
For now, it’s back to work. I spent all day yesterday spray painting a file cabinet. My hands and feet might be permanently turquoise–I can’t get it all off! I haven’t sewn a stitch all week–too distracted–but I will be sewing today. I need a khaki skirt for Tuesday night. And there are a couple other projects I’d really like to get done this week.
The sewing bug is biting! I’ll catch you guys later!
