Thursday 13

New teachers to my district reported last week. Veteran teachers, I guess that's what you call us old-timers, reported Tuesday. The students start August 25th. I was NOT looking forward to being back at work, and here are 13 of the many reasons.

1. No more staying up till all hours of the night on the Internet.

2. No more sleeping late.

3. I'm exiting the napping zone.

4. I actually have to get dressed in presentable clothes.

5. I have to wear makeup.

6. Not as much time for blogging.

7. No time for my favorite obsession... facebook (farmtown, jungle jewels, and chat)!

8. I'll have lessons to plan, meetings to attend, parents to call, and papers to grade.

9. I'll have to make school lunches (or worse, eat cafeteria food).

10. I'll have to go to the restroom on a schedule! Gasp!

11. No more meeting my husband or friends for lunch or movie dates.

12. I won't have time to catch up on any more shows (because I really don't have much time for TV during the school year).

13. No more freedom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To stay positive, maybe next week I will give you 13 good reasons for school to start, but right now, I'm still pouting.

  1. You'll get back into the swing of things...and thanks for getting me addicted to jungle jewels! I can't stop playing! lol!

  2. Hmm that's the life of a teacher and you know what I like it hehehe. Happy TT!

  3. I feel for you, but I'm looking forward to school starting the the fights between the kids easing up a bit.

  4. oh come on... you must missed you students...

    I'm waiting for those 13 good reasons :D

  5. Awwwwwwwwww, come on now, there isn't a rule to wear makeup, is there? You're a beautiful person through and through!!!

    My Thursday 13 is now posted...I feel the need for speed!!! You're invited to join me if you'd like! See ya at my place!! Have a great day.

  6. I feel for ya ... seriously!
    #10 was MY greatest frustration for the 34 years I taught school. Most people (other than the doctors who treat teachers for regular bladder infections) have no clue what that's like. Pout away because you'll be too busy to pout soon ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. I think you should throw yourself on the floor and kick your feet.

  8. I'm glad you're going to do the positives next week! Mine is all about syntax problems in headlines this week.

  9. Wow, they start early these days! 8/25 is my birhtday, and if I ever would have had to start school on my birthday, I wouldn't have been very happy! I did a TT list too, it's here: Cheers!

  10. awww so many good reasons! Hope it's a good school year Di
